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.
