Nino Coniglio, of Williamsburg Pizza, was named the 2016 Pizza Maker of the Year at the annual International Pizza Expo last March—an event that attracts some of the best 200 pizzaioli around. He’s just opened Brooklyn Pizza Crew, where he still offers some of his classics—the Brooklyn pie, the Margherita, and grandma pizzas—but also gets to focus on some specialty varieties. Those include the pizza that won him the pizza maker award, the Tartuffo Pazzo, with homemade mozzarella, smoked scamorza, cremini and porcini mushrooms, porcini truffle crema, rosemary, Parmesan, and pignoli nuts. Another is the Stuffed Artichoke Grandma Pizza, topped with creamed spinach, homemade mozzarella, stuffed artichoke hearts, and marinated red pepper.
The pizzeria seats 14, and yes, they deliver.
Opens daily at noon, until 11 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.
