Favorite Pizza Places in Brooklyn

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

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.
