“For a city that doesn't have great pizza, this place is pretty good.”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

One thing New Orleans doesn't have is great pizza. However, Brooklyn pizza is pretty decent given our options. The place is on Veterans near Clearview and is a bit of a pain to get to but pretty worth it if you're craving NY style pizza.

We usually like our pizza plain with just extra cheese but I have also had their pepperoni and a few of their specialty pies and their food has always been good. I am partial to the plain cheese but think it is the best in the city.

Reasonably priced and the pizza is always ready when they say it will be so that is a bonus.

“Hello Brooklyn!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

This is New Orleans not New York which makes it a feat in itself to find good New York style pizza. Which brings me to this, Hello Brooklyn!

Brooklyn Pizzeria is a family business run by a transplanted New Yorker (we are off to a good start). I didn't dine in, but the setup is reminiscent of a typical NY pizzeria - basic table and chairs, lots of pics on the wall, menu board behind the counter and a condiments counter.

They sell pies (they are known as the "Home of the 20-inch pie"), along with sandwiches, pastas and desserts. I settled on two Slices (Pepperoni & Sausage). These slices are huge and by no means does one person have to order two, I just do greedy thing like that sometimes. I assume the slices come from their 20-inch pies.

I liked the pizza. The crust is thinner and crispier. The beauty of a crust like this, along with the large slices, meant that the pieces were begging to be folded when they were eaten, which I find actually enhances the taste. The sauce provided a good balance of sweet. The pepperoni was crispy, with a good amount of spice.

It was very good, and I’d definitely recommend it. Also for such large slices, this pizza is a very good value.

“Authentic NYC pizza!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

Brooklyn Pizzeria offers the best NYC style pizza in the area.

The slices are enormous and with a variety of toppings.

Order a pie for take out or sit in and enjoy the New York decor.
The food is definitely worth the price. They also baked garlic bread nuggets. These are a bit different from standard garlic bread.

This is go to spot to satisfy a pizza craving.

“BEST New York Style Pizza in NOLA....!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

This is really the only pizza joint that has New York Style Pizza in the city of New Orleans. The large pie is HUGE with HUGE slices like in Manhattan. You can buy pizza buy the slice or order a whole pie. The prices are very reasonable. The dining room is small, so just know that in advance. They do a very good take out business, but do not deliver. But if you are craving a slice of New York Style Pizza, this is your place.

“It's just eh.”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

My coworkers raved endlessly about this place as we ordered take-out today. I wasn't impressed. I found the sauce to be watery, the cheese and the pepperoni average, and the dough as tough as the box it came in. I've never been to NY much less Brooklyn and it begs the question, is THIS what is praised as Brooklyn style pizza? Also, the salad was a box full of limp iceberg with italian dressing on it.
