Brooklyn Pie (aka pizza) Recs besides Di Fara

mtk024 | Mar 20, 200812:09 AM

Sorry, my DNA makes me call it a pie - I guess it's a central NJ thing. Also, I know pizza is a fairly popular topic here - hopefully it hasn't been beaten to death. If it has, I apologize.

Anyway, I recently lived in Brooklyn for several years, and grew up in central NJ. However, I moved to Boston this past August and the pie up here is, well, lets just say not so good. So, I am heading down to Brooklyn and Trenton for a few days next week over my grad school spring break, in no small part due to my hankering for some superb pie.

Several friends and I will be spending a day sampling the finest of Brooklyn and Trenton pies. We will definitely be hitting up Di Fara in Brooklyn (I just can't seem to care what the health dept says, it is my favorite pie in the world along w/ DeLorenzo's on Hudson St. in Trenton, though I have to admit I have not yet sampled New Haven's finest). So, I ask of you fellow Chowhounder's, where else would you go in Brooklyn for the best pie?

I am leaning towards Totonno and Lucali (L&B is out b/c we only want round pie this trip, even though I love Sicilian). I've been to Grimaldi's a couple of times (not all that impressed) and most of the supposedly "best" Manhattan places. Is there anyplace in Brooklyn that I am missing?

For anyone curious, we will be hitting up Papa's in Trenton, along w/ Hamilton St. DeLorenzo's, but the real purpose is to make it to Hudson St for that sweet, sweet goodness. I better stop; I am starting to drool - I sincerely hope the quality at Hudson hasn't declined w/ the opening of the place in Robbinsville (for those who don't know, the Hamilton Ave. and Hudson St. DeLorenzo's in Trenton are completely separately owned and operated, and the Hudson operation just opened a new place in Robbinsville). Thanks in advanc for any recs.
