South Brooklyn Pizza, Brooklyn, NY

South Brooklyn Pizza Restaurant Review

: This intimate Carroll Gardens spot quickly turned into a prime pizza destination. You’ll get no menu, but you will get good pizza. It’s the only thing available. Specifically, owner-chef Jim McGown’s Neapolitan version of a margherita which includes San Marzano tomatoes and a combination of pecorino, Parmigiano and mozzarella di bufala cheeses---all baked in an 1890s coal oven that was originally brought over from the pizza capital, Naples, itself. The low-lit ambience makes for the perfect venue for sampling McGowan’s topnotch pies, washed down, of course, with a pint of Peroni. Occasional additional menu items, such as chocolate chip cookies and doughy bread sticks, are a bonus.
