When it comes to Brooklyn style pizza, you need to find a restaurant that offers an authentic Brooklyn experience. Surely, you’ve gotten the question from friends, family, and NYC tourists — ”what is Brooklyn style pizza?” Unlike the thick doughy crusted pizzas you may be used to, Brooklyn style pizza is very thin and, unlike regular New York style pizza, extremely crispy with the toppings finding their way to the edge of the pie. There are only a handful of pizza places that deliver this authentic style of pizza, and the best pizza in Brooklyn can be found at the following restaurants— check them out below, then check out our favorite bagel shops in the area.

Speedy Romeo Brooklyn Pizza

Located in a former auto body shop, Speedy Romeo delivers wood-fired pizzas that are thin, crispy, and loved by all Brooklyn natives, even though the company hails from St. Louis. Though they’re known for their multi-cheese pizza, Speedy Romeo also offers marinara-based pizza when you’re looking for something more traditional.

Emmy Squared in Brooklyn

Take a trip in from Staten Island to Brooklyn’s Emmy Squared, which offers rectangle-styled pizza with thick, melty cheese and very thin crust. While here, you should taste their original dishes, like the Classic with cheese and sauce or the Deluxe with peppers, mushrooms, and sausage. If you want to try something a little more unique, consider the Hula Hog, which includes mozzarella, chiles, pineapple, and bacon.

Totonno’s has been an icon in the Coney Island area for decades, and the coal-fired brick pizza oven ensures your pies are crispy and perfect. Known for their Margherita pizza, you’ll enjoy Brooklyn style pizza at its finest when you visit this location near Staten Island.
