Fresh Pizza 

Sag Pizza, which opened in Sag Harbor on Friday at the former Conca d’Oro location, offers a wide variety of toppings for its 12-inch, wood-fired pies, which range in price from $14 to $18. The menu features such combinations as mushroom and truffle paste, clams and garlic-scallion butter, and sausage, shishito peppers, and eggs. A selection of fresh pasta dishes is also available. One of the opening-day entrees was rigatoni with spicy sausage, bitter greens, pignoli, and pecorino sardo cheese for $24. The restaurant also serves wine, beer, and cocktails. 

It will be open every day from 11:30 a.m. until midnight.
