At this perpetually packed slice shop, guests order up thin crust, burrata-topped pies and eat off paper plates while sitting on a patio table or nearby bench. No matter which slice you choose at L’industrie, it will be a standout thanks to excellent Italian ingredients sourced by owners Massimo Laveglia and Nick Baglivo, which also make up their seasonal, weekly-changing Wednesday sandwich specials.
Massimo Laveglia and Nick Baglivo are behind this perpetually-packed casual slice shop, where guests sign up for thin crust, burrata-topped pies and eat off paper plates while sitting on a patio table or nearby bench. Pretty much all the pies here standout, and that’s because the team sources excellent Italian ingredients, which also go into their seasonal, weekly-changing Wednesday sandwich specials. At L’industrie, the wine list was curated by those from Stranger Wines

Massimo Laveglia and Nick Baglivo opened this seemingly unfussy slice joint back in 2017, and since then, L’industrie Pizzeria has earned a devout following for its ultra-thin crust round pies laced with premium Italian ingredients. One of the standout slices that most order comes from the leopard-spotted, signature Burrata pie: it’s simple enough in execution––zingy tomato sauce, topped with grated mozzarella and mounds of creamy burrata, finished with extra virgin olive oil––and it’s those high-quality ingredients and a yeasty crust that makes this not your average slice stop. There’s often a line here (but it moves quickly) and patrons like to hang either at the outdoor tables or on a nearby stoop.
Pop into this Brooklyn-favorite slice shop for affordable wedges of margherita and pepperoni pizza. But after enjoying a slice streetside, head back in for some soft serve. L'industrie expanded earlier this year, making just enough room for a soft serve ice cream machine to churn out flavors like olive oil and pistachio gelato or lemon sorbet that can be finished with flaky sea salt or a drizzle of olive oil.
