DAY 21: OCTOBER 21st, 2010
LOCATION: Krispy Pizza (Dyker Heights, Brooklyn)
ORDER: 2 slices of Cheese, 2 slices of Pepperoni
GUEST: Elana Fishbein, Rick Andrews
Reputation for a reason!
Begun over 40 years ago by their father who is immortalized in the Krispy Pizza logo, current owners Freddy and Al keep one eye on the past and one on the future. Still using the tried-and-true recipe for the cheese pie, Krispy's specialty grandma pie is yet another reason to order another slice. Featuring fresh mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and basil this thin-crusted Sicilian pie would get a nod and smile from any Italian "grandma."
40 years ago, there was no distinction between "Brooklyn style", or the "street slice," or "New York Neopolitan" -- it was just "good" or "bad." Krispy Pizza, for decades resides firmly in the "good" category. In retrospect, Krispy's standard cheese slice may have helped define the terms that would later classify them as a typical old school Brooklyn slice, but their motto makes it clear how they feel on the issue.
"If it's not Krispy Pizza, it's not pizza."
With a motto as bold as this, it's clear this old school Brooklyn pizzeria is proud of its products. And they should be. I will be back and look forward to trying the new one in Old Bridge, NJ (run by the other two brothers of the founder).
