Strangest sandwich—poultry (2008)
Ciccio's Pizza makes several marvelous slices, including a square Sicilian, an upside-down Sicilian, and a deep dish using fresh mozzarella, in addition to a Neapolitan slice with sesame seeds implanted in the crust. They also make garlic knots soft as a baby's bottom and dabbed with so much garlic your mouth will catch fire. But the real distinction for this Best Of issue lies in their paninis. Mounted on a round roll made out of pizza dough, the tastiest features grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, and the vegetable most beloved of Italian Brooklynites: broccoli rabe.
