Black Seed Pizza
The 30 Best Pizza Places in NYC
Relocating from the East Village to Bushwick this week, Black Seed Pizza is the pizza venture from Montreal-influenced bagel shop Black Seed Bagels. Helmed by chef Bobby Hellen (formerly of GG’s) and made in a wood-fired oven, the cornerstone of the Sicilian-style pies is 36-hour fermented dough that boasts the flavor of sourdough bread plus a crispy exterior and chewy interior reminiscent of, well, a bagel. A super-herbaceous, organic San Marzano-style tomato sauce and the blend of mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, and Grana Padano cheeses sends it over the edge and into decidedly elevated Sicilian pizza territory—just like how Black Seed’s bagels are fancier (and pricier) than other shops’ offerings. A side order of the Everything Spice Cheesy Bread further ties this delightful bagel shop-serving-pizza concept together.
