Try Arturo's on 225th St and Broadway all the way up in northern Inwood. There is the #1 train 225th stop there.

On 7th ave the one at the entrance to F train is good, but I prefer the less busy one across from B&N.

I have rarely had bad pizza in Brooklyn, but did recently walk out of a pizzeria on 86st(there are some 7 of them) as the owner was on the phone and just kept me waiting too long.
Oh, and Grimaldi's is real famous; I heard Hillary Clinton likes the one under Brooklyn Bridge.
I didnt care for Little Caesar's nor Pizza Hut; I got mixed results from Sbarro's and Domino's, but Papa John's is never a miss.
Sorry but the last line of this translates to "this guy's opinion of pizza should be ignored at all costs."

Di Fara in Midwood and Table 87 in Brooklyn Heights are my favorite

I assumed for a moment you were talking about 'Best Pizza' in Williamsburg, who are also known for their delivery man 'Wild Bill Meier'.

Difara in Midwood is probably still the best. However, the last time I ate there, DiFara burned the pizza. Dude is getting old, so those who haven't tried, go eat there before he dies.

2nd favorite is Juliana's in dumbo.

There's a place near Penn Station I like; surprised to find good pizza in Midtown. Pizza Suprema on 8th between 31st and 30th.

Finding a good pie is not hard, but finding good slices is a bit harder.

I tried Difara several years ago after hearing all the superlatives - it is a bit different than most slices but in the end I just found it OK and not the holy grail of slices. Anyway, there are many places in my neighborhood (Bay Ridge) that do a good slice, not so many in Manhattan. Joe's in the Village is probably the best slice to me. Patsy's East Harlem has good slices too. The pizza place in Penn Station (Amtrak level) also has a surprisingly decent slice. Back when I lived in Forest Hills, there were no good slices to be had there although Nick's did excellent pies!

These are four of the best pizza venues in Brooklyn. I insist on adding a fifth Brooklyn pizza spot. Pete Zaaz in Bed-Stuy makes an AMAZING baked potato pizza... there I said it. What other pizza place in Brooklyn can claim that culinary creation?

be my guest. But thanks for atleast reading.
But I am the only one who mentioned the most famous pizza place in Brooklyn, Grimaldi's.
They opened a place on Stillwell ave(Coney Island), so no need to go to the original one.
