When touring through Brooklyn you might get a bit hungry, and what better food to eat than pizza? Here are two of our favorite pizza places that are definitely worth checking out:

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria
Grimaldi's Pizzeria New York
Grimaldi’s has been located under the Brooklyn Bridge since the 1980s. This pizza dive is unique in that it cooks its pies in coal fired, brick ovens, giving it a delicious, flavor-packed taste. Because the oven is coal fired, peak temperatures can get up to 1000 degrees fahrenheit! At that temperature, it only takes about three minutes to cook a pizza pie to perfection. If you walk in hungry for a quick bite, it won’t take long to satisfy your pizza craving. Grimaldi’s specializes in Neapolitan style pizza, which is a thin, round pie that originated in Naples, Italy, known as Margherita pizza. Their Margherita pizza is made up of three ingredients: pureed San Marzano tomatoes, fresh, whole milk mozzarella and fresh basil. Grimaldi’s is unlike any pizza you’ve ever had and it will leave you coming back for more!

L&B Spumoni Gardens
L&B Spumoni Gardens
L&B Spumoni Gardens has been located in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn since 1941. Their unique Sicilian style pizza is thick and square shaped with a heap of delicious tomato sauce on top. Their pies are made in rectangular pans with the mozzarella placed on the fluffy dough first. They then create a layer between the dough and the sauce that goes on top of the mozzarella. Their sauce is a family secret, but we do know it includes many ingredients and is cooked a long time to make it thicker and sweeter than regular pizza sauce. The final touches to the pizza include a drizzle of olive oil and Pecorino Romano cheese before it goes into a front load pizza oven and cooked to perfection. The slices are huge and delicious, keeping you incredibly happy and satisfied.

Pizza lovers will enjoy these places! But, if you are a true pizza fan, try A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours. Come hungry and let them treat you to the best pizza Brooklyn has to offer, as well as a slice of history as you visit neighborhoods, landmarks and famous movie locations. Their tours even depart from Manhattan. Check them out!
