We've had this debate before, but I don't think it has has its own thread. What's your favorite? Please indicate the category it falls into...

Pizza Types:

1 the traditional slice pie (plain pie): seasoned tomato sauce, crispy crust, grated factory cheese, benefiting from a double cooking process (like Joe’s, most places in Brooklyn, and my secret dark horse Don Pepi in Penn Station)

2 the classic pie (Margherita pie): blazing hot ovens, far simpler sauce, sliced fresh mozzarella (like Grimaldi’s, Una Pizza Napoletana, and John’s)

3 the creative pie: people calling pies loosely based on these other two served on flat bread pizza (like Otto, Gonzo, and Two Boots)

* there is no such thing as a Chicago pizza, what they have is awesome but it is some long slow-baked bread product somewhere between foccacia, Sicilian pie, and lasagna which through some grievous error was branded as pizza.

** nothing that advertises on national television is a pizza. Pizza is regional, unique even by the block around here.

I vote Lucali in Brooklyn (type #2).

The place is too small, unfortunately. We'd never get in. Go sometime with 4 people, max.

From some comments last night, it seems there are a few people yet to weigh in (pun intended) on this important issue...

Went to Lucali again this weekend. Still great.

Times has a review of this new Roberta's place in Bushwick that looks good...

My childhood favorite has recently closed, but I must give due props to Nino's on Henry Street in Brooklyn. Amazing stuff. Its now called Francesco's and the pizza tastes the same, I blieve the kept the Nino's recipe (..a moment of silence and a single tear drop for Nino's...).


Other than that I like Fascati's on Henry St. and Nick and Joe's on Court St.
(and no, I don't leave my neighborhood very often)

Feel free, but I neglected to mention that we were 2 and we still waited outside about 45 minutes. If you plan to go, I'd call and ask what the best time and day is to get in quick.

L&B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn. My all time favorite!!! Unfortunately I live 90 minutes away from my home town Brooklyn.

a blurb from their site:
Welcome to L&B Spumoni Gardens
Home of the World's Famous Pizza and Spumoni.

Spumoni Gardens was founded by Ludovico Barbati in 1939. L&B is now in it's 69th year of operation, and has been family owned and operated from the beginning.

Since 1939, it has become a Brooklyn Landmark. The times have changed, but not at L&B. Generations later... the Italian Ices and Spumoni Grandpa sold off his horse drawn wagon are still the same.

I read the Roberta's review, sounds good. Maybe in a few weeks we can head out there.

Armando's in Canarsie makes the best Sicilian pizza. Grew up eating their pizza. On Rockaway Parkway near Glenwood Road. Right next to the first/last stop on the L train.
Other than that, my brother (when he owned Pat's Pizza in Tappan) a few years back.

In my humble opinion you can't beat the Pizza in Brooklyn. I moved 30 years ago and I miss the food the most.

We do our best to hit one of our favorite spots when we visit or pass thru Brooklyn:

Brennan and Carr's on Av U for triple dipped roast beef sammiches with sauteed onions
Roll and Roaster in Sheepshead Bay I think they invented Cheese Fries
Juniors for cheesecake, burgers, pastrami and mile high sundaes
Atlantic Ave for Mid Eastern food
Nathan's Coney Island for hot dogs, fries and root beer. Still taste the same after 30 years
Gargiulo's Coney Island for upscale Italian food
Spumoni Gardens for pizza
Sally and George's for Mid Eastern food in Bay Ridge 3rd Av.
El Viejo Yayo for Cuban in Park Slope

Too many places too little time!!!!!!!!!!!!! My mouth is watering. Thanks for letting me share.

Patsy's on W.23rd St (between 8 & 9) makes a pretty good thin crust pizza. When I go there I usually park my scoot on the sidewalk (never had a problem) and the place can accommodate a good size group. We could ride there this Wednesday.
