Save it

Brooklyn doesn’t really need another pizza place, but the locals aren’t going to refuse one—especially when the pies are bubbling beauties with charred crusts, pulled from a wood-fired oven. Peperoncino is a sprawling, brick-walled space opened by Martha’s Vineyard expats Patrizia and Nino Gagliardi (she’s an architect, he’s a pizza guru). Behind the wooden bar, Nino prepares specialty pies from his native Naples, such as the Peperoncino, with shrimp, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and zucchini, and the classic margherita. It’s more than just a pizza place, though. Also on the menu: pork chops with spicy pickled peppers and an ethereal torta della nonna.
