Pizza

Yet another illustration of Brooklyn’s growing international appeal, this pizza joint has Torontonians drooling for NYC-borough-inspired pies (not so much how the city makes them, but how New Yorkers are outta-town OBSESSED with the cheese discs). The crusts are thin, Neapolitan-style, and the pizzas hit both expected (white: mozzarella, garlic ricotta, arugula) and unexpected notes (killer bee: sauce, mozzarella, calabrese sausage, serrano peppers, pickled red onion, honey). They mince no words on the menu: toppings are either basic (basil, mushrooms, extra cheese, etc.) or fancy (double-smoked bacon, Nduja sausage, kale, ricotta). The hook is this this 12-seat spot, all bare lightbulbs and checker-plate metal, offers quality by-the-slice in an area you’d previously have to either opt for a slice of gutter pizza or a whole, expensive artisanal pie. BK all the way.
