Cetrone's and TJ Elliott's are good. But for NY style pizza -- nothing compared to Happy Italian Delight! Like so many of us in Bowie, I grew up eating their food. It was the best!

I agree the best in Bowie is the long standing Cetrone's Pizza! Now, just off the beaten path on Old Rt. 450. You won't be disappointed.
