Have you worked your way through our part one and part two of the best Brooklyn pizzerias yet? Because if there’s one thing you should know about Brooklyn, it’s that we never run out of pizza. Here are seven more options for your new favorite pizza place.
The wood-fired brick oven is at the heart of the Europa Pizzeria and Restaurant in Mapleton. No slices here, but a slice just wouldn’t be enough. Europa serves up a whopping 34 varieties of pizza from the traditional Margherita to the Wurstel (with hot dog slices!), so you will want to settle into the dining room for a while. If you’re looking for some authentic Italian flavors (and some hand-made mozzarella), this is the place.

Mushroom and pepperoni pie at Totonnos | Kevin C. via Yelp
Totonno’s (Coney Island)
Get yourself to Coney Island to eat at storied Neopolitan pizzeria Totonno’s, family-owned for 90 years. (Leave the credit cards at home, though, because Totonno’s is cash only.) Another pizzeria that serves up only by the (thin-crust, coal-oven) pie, they only stay open until the dough runs out. This is a must for any true pizza lover — it’s not every Brooklyn pizzeria that has an award from the James Beard Foundation.
Nutella and strawberry pie | Enoteca via Facebook
Enoteca On Court (Carroll Gardens)
If you’re after sitting down with classic brick-oven pizza pie paired with an extensive wine list, look no further than Enoteca on Court. Order a hearty Calabrese pie, or a decadent Quattro Formaggi. If the small plates you start with beforehand still leave you craving more, there’s always the Nutella pie.
Grandma’s pie | Lenny & John’s via Facebook
Lenny & John’s (Marine Park)
For 45 years, Marine Park has been home to Lenny & John’s. This old-school pizza place has all the staples; from slices and Sicilian pies to every Italian classic imaginable, this is your destination for vodka sauce slices, garlic knots, or a great chicken parm. It’s a friendly, low-key place, so you can’t go wrong.
Pizza Melanzana with roasted eggplant and mozzarella | La Villa via Facebook
La Villa (Park Slope and Mill Basin)
La Villa’s extensive pizza menu offers a range of sizes. They don’t serve slices, but you can try a small personal pizza, a large family size, or even pizza by the half meter. It may be hard to choose between thin-crust, deep dish, or stuffed, from a Foccaccia della Nonna to the “NYC Style Special,” but settle in with a glass of wine and we think you’ll manage.

Fascati (Brooklyn Heights)
No-frills, no-nonsense Brooklyn pizza is what you’ll get at this Brooklyn Heights establishment. Cash only, but with slices starting at just $1.75, it’s worth a trip to the ATM. With all the usual pizzeria suspects of heroes, calzones, and baked dishes, there’s something for everyone. And you can order through the window!
A vegan at Vinnie’s | Jonny S. via Yelp
Vinnie’s (Greenpoint and Williamsburg)
Vinnie’s wide selection of pizzas features great names like Alice in Wonderland (mozzarella, tomatoes, fresh basil), Tort Authority (cheese tortellini, marinara sauce, and provolone), and Meat the Parents (pepperoni, sausage, AND bacon). You can even bring the family vegan here for a slice.
