Best Pizza

Brooklyn Pizza Company

(Warning: The following is an example of extreme East Coast bias.) Any New Yorker will tell you truly good pizza is all about the sauce and the crust. They will also tell you the best way to judge is not with a pie adulterated by any number of extras, but through the simple no-frills slice (cheese only), and that almost as important as how it tastes is how it folds, how it collaborates with a carbonated beverage, and how well it will hold up cold (ideally for breakfast or late at night). Brooklyn's, having survived its time in the Fourth Avenue Forbidden Zone (see Escape From New York), continues to score off the charts in every one of these critical areas.
