Best Pizza Margherita in Brooklyn

Stealing hungry_fox's post from the Manhattan board:
"Ok, I know that the ever present debate of NY's best Pizza place is never ending and all over, but what about the best pizza margherita? I'm talking about crust that's paper thin and blistering, simple but tasty tomato sauce without going overboard, and cheese. I've had pizza all over manhattan but I'm yet to find anything like what I had in Italy. Any suggestions?"

      1. I haven't been everywhere in Brooklyn but I have to say I was impressed with Paulie Gee's last night. The basics of the pizza- the crust, the sauce, and the cheese were as good as I've had. I ordered the sopressata but there are tons of different combinations to try including the Regina, which is their equivalent of Margherita.
