Di Fara's
« on: July 07, 2004, 11:42:36 AM »
OK....maybe I'm a little crazy, but since I needed to rush up to New York and back yesterday for a funeral, I couldn't help drag my sister and parents to the famous Brooklyn Di Fara's.  My sister gets such a kick out of the fact that I'm a total nut when it comes to pizza (of course readers here think I'm just normal).

Here's a great article on the place:

The pizza wasn't my style; the dough more pastry like, the cheese excessive, but the pizza was clearly a work of art.   This is not saying that the pizza was bad.  It's like saying you don't like Piccaso, but you recognize the greatness of his paintings.   I had never tasted a pizza like that I believe me, I've had a ton of pizza's.   BTW, my sister loved his pizza especially the crust.

Dominick DeMarco is the master.  Watching him make my pizza was like watching a great artist.   His love for pizza (after 40+ years of making it) was quite evident.
