This rustic Greenpoint joint has become one of the standouts of the NY pizza scene—the pies are deliciousness from crust to topping. You can go for a classic, or for something more out-there like the Hometown Brisket, a beautiful marriage of fresh mozzarella, beef brisket from Red Hook’s Hometown Bar-B-Que, house-pickled red onions and a drizzle of Hometown Bar-B-Que sauce. You’ll want to grab a seat in the back to watch the custom-built white-tiled domed oven making magic at 1,000 degrees. 60 Greenpoint Ave, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (347-987-3747, pauliegee.com). Pies from $14.
