Di Fara Pizza

1424 Avenue J, Brooklyn, NY - (718) 258-1367
Prepare to wait your turn at this humble but hugely popular corner shop, where Dominic DeMarco pulls hot pizza from the oven with his bare hands (so he can test doneness).

Loyalists consider DiFara's the best pizza on earth.

Mr. DeMarco, hard at work snipping the basil as a crowning touch to yet another lovingly made pizza.

We set our appetites off and running with a slice each of Mr. DeMarco's Sicilian pie.

I'll admit that I felt some ''sticker shock'' when I first glanced at these prices but upon exiting the tiny shop I felt that it was most definitely worth every bite and every penny.
