Pizza near Junior's Cheesecake
- tuxedo Jan 5, 2012 06:11 AM
We are taking my college age nephew to Juniors for cheesecake....Would like pizza prior...Where should we go for the best pizza? It needs to be close to the Brooklyn Juniors location...
There's PIPITONE'S, a local place on DeKalb Avenue near Ashland Place (across from LIU and Brooklyn Hospital) that makes a special square slice with tomato sauce atop the cheese (like the pies at L&B)...also decent garlic knots. Junior's is two blocks away.

Queens Pizza on Court St is very good. I have not been there in a while but it still gets good reviews.
If you are having pizza for dinner try Lucali which is fabulous. They don't do lunch.
Sam's pizzeria on Court St is also a very good old school place.
These places are within walking ditance if the weather is nice.
My favorite @ Junior's is the strawberry cheese pie! After the NYE fireworks @ Prospect Pk we walked down Flatbush Ave to Junior's and had our first 2012 pastrami sammich, egg cream, malted and sllice of strawberry cheese pie!! What a great way to start the new year.

It must certainly have been a while! Queens has been closed for at least 15 years (although the related restaurant still exists and does get good reviews, relocated a block away from the original). I would think that Sam's is too far away given the OP's requirements.
To the OP: There is a very ordinary pizza place called Tony's a few steps away from Juniors on Dekalb and Fulton Mall. This is the place that was relocated from the other end of the Mall to make room for Shake Shack.

I guess it depends on weather and what one considers "walking distance" but at .5 miles google maps says it would take 11 minutes to walk - I cant speak for the OP and his nephew, but having taken road trips, exceedingly long subway rides and waited hours in line in search of good pie, id gladly walk half a mile for pizza most any day. (for some reason i cant get the full google maps link showing the walk functional, but its 7 blocks, two of which (the first two as you'd be leaving sottocasa) are semi-longish but not as long as avenue blocks in many parts of manhattan).
is Antonio's around there? that shop is pretty legit.
also Not Rays
these are slice shops
