The main Pizza Moto location is in Red Hook, and it’s one of the busiest places in the neighborhood. But they also have a stand at the Riis Park Beach Bazaar, and it’s where you should be eating pizza on this end of the beach. The pies are the slightly-charred Neapolitan kind. Get a few and eat them at a picnic table in the courtyard.
