Brooklyn pizza: Best slices and pies in the borough

A warning: The best pizza in Brooklyn is so controversial a topic that it really ought to be listed along with politics and religion as things not to be discussed in polite company.

But if you never much cared for politeness, pizza is an endlessly debatable topic, and nowhere more so than Brooklyn — where old-school pizza joints and new-school pizza restaurants are everywhere, each seeking to elbow their way into your heart (and stomach) in a crowded market. But the truth is there is no such thing as too much pizza, and certainly there is never too much great pizza.

So, as we did with Queens and Staten Island here’s a look at some of Brooklyn’s best pies and slices — from no-frills pizzerias where you can grab a slice to-go to hipster meccas with massive wait lists.
