I recently took a trip to Brooklyn, New York. The same area that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got their start and, I’m guessing, their addiction to pizza. A turtle eating pizza makes total sense in a place like Brooklyn. The pizza there is like an ambrosia passed down by the god. Every one of these pizzerias found their equivalent of Thor’s Hammer, but in the form of an ancient pizza oven.
While traveling through the Olympus of Pizza I did find one clear winner. And no, it was not that fried pizza from Forcella’s in Williamsburg.
One pizza place that understands the balance of the pizza triforce; a perfect blend of sauce, cheese, and crust.
A pizza place that knows how to deliver a fundamentally perfect pie and sidesteps gimmicks.
A pizza so perfect that it was crafted on Zeus’s anvil and delivered by pegasus himself.
That place is DiFara in Midwood, Brooklyn. I was so inspired by my visit I put together a video chronicling what goes on at DiFara. I talk to some folks who waited an hour in line just to get into the pizza place, and a chef who goes into the nitty gritty of what makes DiFara the best.
Enjoy the video. I’ll have more on DiFara Pizza tomorrow.
