Husband-wife duo David Sheridan (Paulie Gee's) and Kim McAdam are behind this Ditmas Park pizza-and-cocktail joint, decorated with chrome chandeliers, reclaimed-cedar walls and papier-mâchéd, taxidermied deer heads. Born in the couple's backyard—Sheridan built an at-home brick dome oven in 2010—the 40-seat eatery specializes in thin-crust, Neapolitan-style rounds. While there's a Margherita to please purists, most toppings skew modern: The Red Hook features mortadella, sliced potato, thyme and crushed pistachios; the Sunset Park is covered in Mexican chorizo, kale and aged mozzarella. From the steel-and-wood bar come classic bourbon quaffs: a Manhattan, a Seelbach and a Boulevardier. Six draft beers—including Sixpoint Apollo Wheat and Victory Headwaters Pale Ale—and eight wines by the glass are also available.

Ah, Wheated.  For me this Pizza spot has become synonymous with birthdays momentous occasions.  It's probably because of the mix of creative cocktails and finely tuned artisan pies.  Depending on when you arrive wait times can be upwards of 30 minutes.  An addition wait time of 15-20 minutes is common for pizza arrival.  It's well worth the time.  I have yet to try a pie I don't like.  Even the cheese less arugula pie is tasty!  My wife loves that they can make nearly every pie with vegan cheese, a relatively new addition to their menu options.  The prices are decent and the atmosphere is charming.  I feel a faint hipster vibe every now and again but it's usually remedied by the mouthwatering pizza resting quietly in my belly.  This place worthy of a trip from any borough.  Just leave the ironic thrift shop dancing cat shirt in Williamsburg, please!
