Pizza Moto



Up for a pizza adventure? Try Pizza Moto in Brooklyn – a delightful discovery serving Neopolitan-style pizza from a wood-fired oven dating from decades ago. Evolving from a food truck, this outfit is now in a building that, in the 19th century, housed a bakery, then cigars, then pasta; now, with its original coal-fired oven rebuilt for wood, it’s serving pizza in a setting that is warm and welcoming. This place is as much about its location (between Red Hook/Carroll Gardens) and its urban history, as it is about the love its owners/chefs/staff have for good food, where it comes from, how it tastes, and what it means to share with friends and family. We had the winter chicory salad and sampled many of the pizzas – particularly good were the bianca (bacon fat, herbs, salt and pepper), margarita (mozzarella, tomato, basil, pecorino, olive oil), and verde (tomitillo garlic, jalapeno, cilantro and avocado). Sure it’s out of the way but it is well worth going to, and even us non-natives will want to return.
