‘The Pizzeria’ eyes January opening in Bay Shore


The Pizzeria is inching closer to the opening of its fourth location — this slice shop in Bay Shore.

The owners told GreaterBayShore they will be opening their new pizza joint some point in early 2022.

“[We are aiming for] mid-to-late January,” co-owner Cliff Weinstein said.

The pizza shop is coming to the first floor of Eleven Maple, the 90-unit apartment complex being developed by Greenview Properties on the corner of Maple Avenue and Gibson Street.

GreaterBayShore broke the story of The Pizzeria’s expansion back in April.

The other locations include Smith Haven Mall, which opened in October 2020; Bayport, which opened in December 2020; and Islip, which opened this May. The team said more storefronts are in the works, as well.
