Good delivery pizza Park slope - Convenient to 7th Ave and 9th St.

m not normally a delivery fan but I need to order a few pizzas for a crowd in this area - there are a lot of slice places including the inexcrable Smiling. Can anyone recommend a place that is a cut above that can reliably deliver pies that are both good and hot??

A place near 7th and 7th for pickups would also work.

Good sicilian options would be a bonus.

  1. i dont eat much delivered pizza either, but when we do we tend to get it from pizza cotto bene on 3rd and union. its not terribly close but they deliver to us further down in the slope (albeit on 4th). Never had their sicilian, but they take a lot of pride in their work and use lioni mozzarella which i really appreciate. cant say the salads are anything special - if you order them be sure to specify dressing on the side.

    1. Roma on 7th and Union has some damn good slices, at least. Never had them deliver, but I eat the grandma and fresh-mozz slices there a lot.

      1. When I lived on 9th St. my fave delivered pizza joint was Two Boots on 2nd St., bet. 7/8th Ave. I like their crust, and they have interesting topping options if you're into that.

        1. Pino's, on 7th Ave. at 1st St. is your best option. They make classic NY style pies and have put out a consistently good product for for more than 20 years. They'll certainly deliver to your address.

            went with Pinos - their margherita sicilian was quite good as was the service, right on time., thanks to all. We will give cotta bene a try another time., their pies look interesting.

              I'm glad it worked out Jen. I've been ordering from them for years.

              With the weather about to turn warmer it's worth taking a walk down to 20th St. and 5th Ave. to check out Luigi's. It's shown up on a couple of Best of Brooklyn lists over the last 4 or 5 years but it's been around forever. I've been there 3 times (twice for slices, once for a pie) and found the pizza ranged between good and excellent. The ambiance is classic old Brooklyn.

              Try a slice. See if you like it.

                Totally second the recommendation on Luigi's for slices or for eat-in (I'd say they're the best in the area, as well as being slightly cheaper (I mean, it's pizza, we're talking fifty cents cheaper per slice, but still)). However, they are very weird about delivery - they only deliver in a small area, and sometimes they will deliver and sometimes they won't. At 7th Ave and 9th St you may be out of their range.

                (Unless things have changed in the last year or so, and recent Yelp reviews seem to indicate that they've started delivering more reliably....)

                I don't mean to hijack this thread but....

                I've had both delivery and takeout from Cotta Bene, and both times the only way to describe it is disgusting. The crust was almost gummy, and the cheese has a "funk" that didn't seem like something anyone had intended.

                I guess I just don't like their pizza. Oh, I like delivery from Pepperoncino, though I haven't ordered delivery in probably two years.

                  interesting - definitely no offense taken. I'll say that its been a while since we've had Cotto Bene pizze (maybe 6-8 months?) but we'd ordered it maybe half a dozen times in the six months before that and found it to be quite good - delivery considered.
