DAY 5: October 5th
LOCATION: DiFara Pizza (E. 15th St, BROOKLYN)
GUEST(S): Ivan Lerner
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of pepperoni
PIZZA REPORT: Worth it. Ivan and I travelled deep into the heart of Brooklyn via train, shuttle bus, and then train again (thank you, weekend MTA construction) to get to DiFara Pizza. The nearly 2 hour trek from my apt in Queens was all worth it when I sunk my teeth into my first slice of a DiFara pepperoni pizza. The cheese was still bubbling, so I probably should have waited to take that first bite, but I had worked up quite an appetite en route. The crust was crispy creating a thin yet firm foundation for the mozzarella cheese and the hand cut toppings. The sauce was a delicious blend of spicies and fresh tomatoes that I could probably have eaten by itself. The combination of the sauce, the cheese, and the toppings (particularly the pepperoni) synthesized into a true mouthwatering slice of pizza.
