I remember pizza in Brookly when I was growing up. We would stop off at the pizza parlor after school and have a "slice" which was big enough to last us through dinner. I always remember fondly how the dough was crisp but flexible and you were able to fold it in half like a newspaper. The cheese was plentiful and along with the oil oozed off the pizza. You could taste the oregano and other italian spices. I have been in Atlanta 18 years now and have yet to find pizza that matches the ones I ate in Brooklyn. The closet I've ever tasted is at Rosa's downtown Atlanta. I think the owners are originally from Queens, NY, but theirs is still not the perfection I remembered as a teen. Jeff's pizza has gotten enormous press and although I haven't tried it, the comments posed here have given me pause. I emailed Jeff when I first saw his website and he very nicely emailed me back. I was very excited but now I'm not so sure. I think I will just have to wait until my next trip to New York to get really good authentic Italian pizza. From Brooklyn.
