Fano Bakery

I shouldn't have to tell Albuquerque but! There only one place to eat real Pizza.

Fano Bakery is as good as it gets. It's all in the ingredients and the oven.

Try the Pizza Margherita with Buffalo Mozzarella.

I'm from New York and should know.

  1. Hunh, I'd never heard of this place before, but looks pretty good:

    How's the crust? Looks a little on the crackery side for my preference, but certainly not half bad. Did you happen to see what kind of oven they used?

    My NYC pizza knowledge isn't especially deep, but does Fano's pizza remind you of any NYC places in particular?

      There is only one place even with the proliferation of designers pizzeria's. It's called Da Fara in Brooklyn. Dominic has been making Pizza for 60 years. He is a true Pizziola from Naples.
      The average wait for his masterpiece is over an hour.
      He uses the best ingredients and has a standard gas oven. So the question is it the oven, the ingredients or the man. My guess its the man.
      I am somewhat disappointed in that a true Foodie never questions price over quality. You get what you pay for.

        Well, I'll be! Never heard of the place. I assume the pizza is take out only? I would have to eat it in the car cause it would be stone cold by the time I got it home....

        Can you fold a slice in half to eat it? There is no pizza here in NM that can do that! I'll be back home in NY in 3 weeks, can you say PIZZZZZZZZZZZZZA and Chiiiiiiiiinese??

          Google Di Fara and then Utube him. You can see the Master at work.

          I live in Chinatown so if you need to know-ask.
