Di Fara Pizza

Rating:

Location: 1424 Avenue J, Brooklyn, NY

Price: $5 for slice, $25 for plain pie, $35 specialty

It sometimes upsets me that it’s so difficult to find a good slice of pizza in the land of pizzas, pies, & slices of NYC.  You see a pizza joint on almost every other corner from the Joe Schmoe spots to relatively better pizza joints but, nothing special.  BROOKLYN is where you have to go for legendary pizza & if there ever was a legendary Pizza maker it would have to Dom DeMarco of Di Fara Pizza.

Anyone remotely interested in good pizza knows about this famed spot in Midwood, South Brooklyn where Dom has been making pizza for over 30 years…and ONLY him.  It sucks that the price of a slice rose to an astounding $5!! For me, if I take a trip that far for pizza, I don’t only get one slice…I always get a whole pie.  There is something special about  watching him make the pizza and eating the freshly baked pizza that maybe makes the pizza eating experience extra special.  Whatever it is, the combination of fresh ingredients, the imported spices, and his life experience at making that pizza definitely deliver to satisfy that “pizza hunger.”  I have not tasted pizza anywhere like his in Manhattan but, I’ve only had one better pizza in NYC…in Brooklyn of course.  I’ll let you all know that place when my next pizza craving comes along…
