If you want to truly make your quarantine partner swoon, just say those three sexy little words: wood-fired pizza. There’s something about that phrase that can make you instantly, wide-eyed with hunger, regardless of the time of day. It denotes a pizza pie made with quality dough, blazed in a rustic oven until it becomes a crispy, airy, char-spotted crust topped with artisan cheese and garden-fresh toppings. And even better—it’s easy to find around the Hudson Valley. Check out the drool-worthy menus of these eateries serving up the wood-fired goodness to-go.

Pizzeria Posto | Rhinebeck

This acclaimed Rhinebeck pizzeria offers distinctive, artisanal pies from the courtyard just off E. Market St. Try tantalizing options like the Marino with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, soppressata, and Gaeta olives ($19) or the sauce-free Morandi with Grana Padano, red onions, pistachios, and rosemary ($18). Posto is open daily except Tuesday, serving their entire typical menu from 12 until 8:30pm for curbside pickup. Call (845) 876-3500.
