Ordered a regular large pie for $28 and it took 40 min. for pickup. For this shop i hear that was pretty quick. Quality ingredients. You can tell it is fresh. Nice pieces of tomatoes, basil, grated Parmesan, and olive oil. The distinct taste though is the crust. Crispy and has a note of a sour dough taste. Go for the fresh red peppers as well to put on top. As other pizza shops use dried red pepper flakes. Using the fresh ones definitely gives it a nice spicey kick.

Nothing special at all. I paid $5 for a slice and I want to tell the world, its Brooklyn Pizza. I went down the block and found pizza just as good for half the price. My biggest disappointment is the decorum just antiquated and the place was even cited for cockaroaches. I will never return. The hype is nonesense created to make the place popular, but its nothing special.

Best pizza I've ever had!! It changed my life on pizza!! Original owner putting love into every pie. Im from Dallas. . Stayed in time square while in NY and had to go to brooklyn just for the pizza!! I waited 2 hours for my slice and was worth every single minute of the wait!!! Im on the hunt for anything close to this excellence at home. So far no luck.

This is the best pizza in NYC. It's probably far for most people but I live close to here so it's not a long journey for me. I like watching the owner make the pizza and knowing all the ingredients are fresh. The pizza is a bit pricey by the slice but if you get a pie, it's not that bad. You may have to wait for a long time but if you live near here, just come on weekdays.

Best pizza I've ever eaten, hands down. Handmade by one man-- using gas ovens, no less-- who manages to perfectly balance every aspect... Perfect, chewy but lightly charred crust. A tomato sauce blend that is tart and hearty, with just the right amount of sweetness. A cheese blend, as expected, that is indescribably good. Top that off with some olive oil and fresh basil when it comes out of the oven, and you have an unbeatable slice. Unbeatable, that is, except for possibly his Sicilian pie, which is also, without a doubt, the best Sicilian I've ever had. My usual move, and my recommendation, is to order a whole pie and get a Sicilian/square slice to eat while waiting for it. Don't forget, it's BYO as well, which can also help pass the wait.

OK, so I've heard about this place for a while now and so me and my buddies decided to venture deep into the heart of Brooklyn and try it to see if it lived up to the hype. The place, you can tell, has been there for ages. The owner is the guy who makes every single pie. A slice is $5 and a full pie was over $30, which I thought was a bit much. Luckily we got there when it wasn't really busy, but after ordering, we were told it would take 40 minutes! So finally, it was time to taste it and I personally thought it was pretty good, but it did not live up to the hype. The pie was not crispy and it was a bit too oily. I've definately had better pizza, but I'd still recommend hitting it up at least once, just for the experience.
