Brooklyn Pizza Market is, most likely, the only pizza place on Earth that’s equal parts New York Jets and Star Wars-themed. This is a tiny spot on Smith Street, and they make pizzas with names like Gang Green and C3PO. They do both square and round pizzas here, and you can customize either kind with upscale toppings like fontina, prosciutto, and sopressata. It’s a great pickup or delivery option, and it’s perfect for when you need a quick slice or some garlic knots handed to you by a person in a Jets hat.

Bar San Miguel
A Carroll Gardens Mexican bar and restaurant, owned by Jim Cramer from CNBC. Surprisingly, it is entirely devoid of yelling. It’s pretty damn good, too.

We feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t have a Paulie Gee’s in their neighborhood as an option for excellent Neapolitan pies.
Olio Pizza e Piu
Olio Pizza e Piu managed to get one of the worst Infatuation ratings ever. Each pizza we ordered was a mess of rubbery cheese and crust – heavy, sloppy and unappetizing.
