Some pictures of South Brooklyn Pizza in the East Village.
NY Style pizzas fired in a gas deck oven...maybe leaning towards a New York-Neapolitan Style, but splitting hairs at that point over style.
Very nice outer snap-inner chew texture combination....the outer crust was almost rustically hearty in texture. The crust had some actual flavor to it as well, which is always a nice change from the usual slice joint suspects.
The sauce was vibrant and fresh, the mozzarella home made, of very high quality and creamy and the addition of fresh oregano was a nice touch for both the flavor and perfumed aromatics it lent to the slice. Nice ratios of sauce-crust-cheese.
The hardcore enthusiast would have likely wanted a better crumb/hole structure and a little more developed flavors in the crust (don't we always!), but on the day I went at least, the regular slice and the Sicilian were significantly better than average on all counts and a product displaying care and passion. Very good slice joint serving some of the better slices
I have tried in Manhattan (again, based on the one day I was there).
Jack was quite a friendly and funny character. If you ever in the area (1st avenue between St.Mark's & 7th Street), this is a great option for a good slice or two. Love the fresh vegetables displayed right there on the counter/make table. The Manhattan Special Espresso Soda on draft is killer!
I blabbed more about this spot over at my place, so you can read about it there if you'd like. Some short video of the place coming soon. Cheers! --K
