South Brooklyn in Manhattan is not an oxymoron. At least it is not an oxymoron since when this pizzeria appeared in the East Village a few years ago.
The place is small but it has all that is needed for a great pizza by the slice. There are two types of pizzas: round and rectangular. The latter – also called Sicilian-style – is the one you should try.
Since the baking takes longer, the rectangular pizza is available in more limited quantities. In case there was a customer like me immediately before you, you may need to wait for a new batch to come out of the oven. Rest assured that the quality of the pizza is worth the short wait.
The Sicilian pizza has a crunchy crust at the bottom and a tender layer of dough at the center. Tomato sauce all the other ingredients are really top-notch.
You can check the quality of the cheese by contemplating the windowed refrigerators located below the countertops place on one side and on front of the window. Additional sauces – spicy, garlic, and others – are available at the countertop tables.
The Sicilian-style pizza is also good for a home delivery. It can be re-heated quickly and without loss of quality in an electric oven (avoid microwave, for this delicate task).
