The best pizza in Brooklyn.....that no one knows about.

That's because it's in this odd little corner of Bensonhurst, at Stillwell Avenue and 80th Street but his pizza is sublime. My favorites are the Nonna, a thin crust square with a dark tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and amply seasoned with herbs, the Sophia Lauren, fresh tomato sauce, slices of fresh tomatoes, garlic(!) and sesame seed crust and the Peter Special, a thicker crust round pie. He also has vodka, chicken bruschetta, upside down pizza, rice balls, pannini and pasta. I used to love to watch Dom DeMarco make pizza but now with the wait and the cost, it's not worth it. Peter makes pizza like he was born doing it and will regale you with amazing stories of Brooklyn while he's slinging pies. So for the incredible pizza and entertainment experience, Peter is my number one choice.

  1. The pies sounds like a spin off of Ciccio's on Ave U. I, for one, would not clasify Ciccios as a great pizza joint but a better than average slice place. But since Pete's is so close to me, I will have to check it out. I do have a hard time believing this has been under the radar and truly great.
    FWIW - I hope to eat those words!!!

    1. While the pizza is pretty good, albeit a little too acidic for my taste, referring to it as 'Sublime' is really pushing the envelope. I find Casa Bella's on 26th Ave to be better.

        1. Thanks for the info. I'm curious to try Peter Pizza and compare it to DiFara' far as cost and wait goes, I'm pretty much willing to endure both to eat at DiFara's, which I consider to be the best pizza ever, anywhere.

          1. Anyone know if they sell slices? I'm intrigued, but would prefer to give it a test run, since it's easier to drag myself to Bensonhurst on the prospect of good pizza than five other people.
