According to NY Magazine: The Best Pizza in the World Can Be Found in One Square Mile of Williamsburg


On December 5, Grub Street / New York Magazine published a great article as part of their annual Reasons to Love New York issue, titled The Best Pizza in the World Can Be Found in One Square Mile of Williamsburg.


“The best pizza neighborhood in New York is actually Williamsburg, where excellent pizzerias are as concentrated as a heavily reduced tomato sauce. The Williamsburg Pizza Corridor provides Sicilian-ish pieces topped with barbecue chicken, nuevo New York slices and classic New York slices, grandma pies of the Long Island school, Detroit style with frico crust, and, as if that weren’t enough, Roman squares. It’s not just that there’s so much good pizza so close together but that it spans so many pizza genres.”


We just had our Like A Local Tours holiday party and there was much discussion around NY pizza! Our resident pizza expert, tour guide Justin Van Voorhis, says his favorite is a spot that’s featured on our delicious Lower East Side Food Tour: Nolita Pizza. He recommends what they call the Regina Napoletana.


From born and bred Brooklynite Bridget who is based in Bensonhurst:

“Two of them right here in Bensonhurst:
-If I want a regular slice, I go to J&V on 18th Avenue and 64th Street: family pizzeria open since 1950, best slice around!πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•
-If I want a square (Sicilian) slice, I go to DaVinci Pizza on 18th Avenue near 66th. They’ve been open since the 1960s. Best square, even better than the legendary L&B in my opinion! πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•
-My all-time favorite pizzeria though is DelMar on Sheepshead Bay Road in Sheepshead Bay, best specialty slices I’ve ever had and excellent regular slices too! πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•”
