Ask any Brooklynite to point you in the direction of the best Pizzeria and you will get a multitude of answers of which none will disappoint. Seriously. Brooklyn excels in pizza creation and your trip to NYC shouldn’t be without a stop in this borough for a bit of real Italian cooking. Here are the ultimate Top 5 Pizzerias in Brooklyn that you can’t miss:
Lucali (Carroll Gardens)
Come for the atmosphere, the close neighbourhood feel and the best calzone you’ll ever eat. While the fresh ingredients are listed on the board every night, you’ll rarely need more toppings on the pizza than maybe a bit of garlic or artichoke in season. Don’t you dare get any toppings on the calzone, it’s perfect as is!
Address: 575 Henry St., Brooklyn
Subway stop: Carroll St. (F & G)
L&B Spumoni Gardens (Gravesend)
Looking for a Sicilian pizza to take a break from all the gorgeous Neopolitan versions knocking about? Might sound crazy but the square pie at L&B’s is the perfect deviation with tasty sauce and crunchy but doughy crust. Don’t forget to venture past the pizza menu to try all their other incredible, homemade Italian dishes.Address: 2725 86th St., Brooklyn
Subway stop: 86th St. (N)
Di Fara Pizza (Midwood)
Over 50 years’ experience and supreme, classic ingredients make this Pizzeria stand out amongst strong competition in the deepest Brooklyn location. Queues of excited customers line up around the block waiting to taste the most exquisite, lovingly created pizza pie or slice by Mr. Demarco himself and the wait is certainly worth it every time.
Address: 1424 Avenue J, Brooklyn
Subway stop: Avenue J (Q)
Another Pizzeria on this list that serves oh-so-much more than ‘just’ Pizza. Roberta’s has a full menu of delicious dishes (think ribs) that will have you coming back for more, even though you’ll want to order the same thing you had last time because it was soooo good. Great for takeout so you can try all their pizzas and dishes.
Address: 261 Moore St, Brooklyn
Subway stop: Morgan Ave. (L)
Paulie Gee’s (Greenpoint)
Combining creativity with the absolute best ingredients by a talented and inventive chef, you will find Paulie Gee’s pizzas and never want to stop eating. Try as many menu options as you can although we recommend the Hellboy pizza that comes with a gorgeous drizzle of chilli-infused honey. And if you’re vegan, you’re in luck! There’s even a delicious (yes, really) vegan pizza.
Address: 60 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn
Subway stop: Greenpoint Ave. (G)
