Best Foodie Adventures: Midwood, Brooklyn (2012)

Di Fara Pizza

The lines are long, and the wait can be unpredictable, but it’s absolutely worth your while to make the pilgrimage to Midwood for Dom DeMarco’s beautiful, charred pizzas at Di Fara. The slow-moving, Italian-born pie master quietly and carefully builds each one himself. A plain pizza involves San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, Grana Padano, a generous drizzle of olive oil, and freshly snipped herbs (sometimes oregano, sometimes basil). With its thin, bubbly, blackened crusts and exquisite balance of flavor and texture, this might be the finest pizza in the city, if not the most loved. 1424 Avenue J, Brooklyn, 718-258-1367, (11230)
