"The Original Brooklyn Pie Co."
« on: August 23, 2005, 10:56:20 AM »
Anyone ever heard of this pizza maker?




They just opened a shop across the highway from where I work and I hope to try the place on my lunch hour today.


Their sign makes it look like the place is a chain of some sort, but I can't find much info on them over the net, at all.

too bad  :o

well enjoy the pizza, and let us know if it tasted anything like others you've tasted.

I'd be interested in knowing also what they charged you for it.

are you buying a medium ? or a small ? if just for you at lunchtime at work.... ?

anyway enjoy and bon appetite.

I don't even know what sizes they offer yet.  ;D


It's a little store front type, from what I can tell by looking at the place from the street, with a counter against the window for folks to sit and wait. It's not a real 'sit down' restaurant by any means from what I can see.

Their logo is cool, though. It's a picture of the Brooklyn Bridge in a sepia type color.

I wish I had brought a camera today.


The pizza was fantastic. When I first got there I saw the prices of their slices and thought *AYE!!!*... they were more expensive than I'm used to.

$2.85 per slice for cheese.
$3.50 per slice for pepperoni.
$.60 per topping, per slice.

I got the pepperoni.


They claimed their slices were 'big', but hey... who doesn't claim that? Well... they were downright huge. Well worth the $3.50 for a pepperoni slice.


Before I saw the slice, I ordered half of a caprese salad to go with it. I figured I'd get something to supllement my appetite, after all, I'm not a little dude.

After I ate the slice, I could barely finish less than half of the half salad. ;)


It looks like they cut their 18" pies in to 6 pieces to get their huge slices.


The pizza was delicious. The inner crust was droopy, though. Droopier than normal at the end. It seemed just a little too thin at the center of the pie. Even folded, the slice wagged pretty bad.

The outer crust was a little less pronounced than most NY style is. It was only a little taller than a half inch high. It was very light and 'crusty' though. Great flavor in the crust all by itself.

One thing I thought was a bit strange, but I liked it, was that they serve their slices with a dill pickle spear. Interesting touch. It was a nice compliment to the pie. Something for you pizza joint owners to think about. ;)


Overall, I'd consider this a real find. They blow the other mom-pop pizza joint in Round Rock, TX, away, and that's saying a lot.

I work @ BPC.

We're not a chain. Originally we had a location in Georgetown (behind the Days Inn on park Ln) but moved to La Frontera.

The pies we get the slices from aren't 18 inches. They're 26 inches.
