Serious Pizza

Photos by Danielle Malmgren

There are some pizza destinations in New York that should not be passed up, Totonno's is one of them. You haven't tasted pizza like this...or at least not in a very long time.  With trendy wood fired pizza ovens all over the city... phenomenal coal oven pizza like this are much harder to come by.  The crispy crust, perfect sauce and fresh mozzarella are all baked to perfection.  Don't let the the long lines, airplane-wine-bottles, and sassy Brooklyn attitude turn you away, they only add to the charm.

Here in New York we all take our neighborhood pizza very seriously, maybe a tad too seriously by SOME peoples standards. The point is we don't care about those people AND we don't fool around with mediocre ingredients and quality, that's why Roberta's really stands out on the pizzeria list of heavy weights.  This hipster hangout serves up top notch pizza and out of this world veggie sides (straight from their rooftop garden).  I grabbed a seat at one of the many picnic tables and indulged on the Fairytale Eggplant (with mascarpone, wood sorrel and arugula), and the Axl Rosenberg Pixxa (tomato, mozzarella, sopressata, mushrooms, double garlic and jalapenos). There are many great pizzas in New York but when you combine imaginative menu options and fresher the fresh ingredients the result is pure perfection.
