|Me in front of Di Fara’s pizza in Brooklyn, NY|
Di Fara Pizza is a hole in the wall spot on the corner of Avenue J & East 15th street in Midwood, Brooklyn, NY. This place has thousands and thousands of reviews and it is rated one of the top places for pizza in the United States. If you read any review on this place, people give high praise to the pizza, saying it’s not only the best pizza in America or Italy, but the best pizza on EARTH. It’s $5 a slice, and a whole pie is $28. With it being $5 a slice, I was expecting some pretty damn good pizza and it definitely fulfilled my expectations. In every blog or review I read on Di Fara’s, they said the average wait time for pizza is 45 minutes but waiting 2 hours isn’t unsual either. I was super lucky because when I went, I only waited 20 minutes. I went with some Brooklyn natives, who swore it was the best pizza in New York, and they said there is no place like Di Fara’s. It is always jammed pack with a line out the door. I guess it was our lucky day, because we got our pizza pies in only 20 minutes, and as we were eating, we looked and it suddenly got slammed with a long line out the door. Talk about perfect timing…
Being in New York and being a big foodie, I wanted to make sure I had the BEST New York syle pizza. One of the founders of Di Fara pizza named Domenico DeMarco, an older gentleman who opened the place in 1964, makes the pizza with his own hands and he made our pizza pie right in front of us. He is there Wednesday- Sunday (that is when the place is open), and when he is unable to come in, he shuts down the pizzeria. Everything he uses to make the pizza is fresh. No canned mushrooms or olives at this place.
From Provincia di Caserta in Italy, Domenico DeMarco claims:
