The crew behind Williamsburg Pizza are expanding their footprint yet again, this time with their New York-style slice joint Brooklyn Pizza Crew.
Pizzaiolo Nino Coniglio is taking over a space at the Smorgasburg-run Crown Heights bar/mini-food hall Berg’n, at 899 Bergen Street in Crown Heights. They’re replacing Australian pie pop-up Dub Pies, and although the original location of Brooklyn Pizza Crew is a slice shop, the Berg’n outpost will only do a personal pie size and a larger pie, according to co-owner Aaron McCann.
Expect biggest hits like the grandma, the vegan (tomatoes, garlic, red onions, spinach, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, black olives), and the tartufo (mozzarella, rosemary, crimini mushrooms, white truffle oil, Parmigiano-Reggiano). It will be open sporadically this week until Thursday, when it will be available from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday.
It’s the sixth location overall for Williamsburg Pizza. Brooklyn Pizza Crew is the newest addition to the company. It opened in Crown Heights in the fall, and since then, it has popped on a best cheap eats in New York list.
McCann says they plan on opening more standalone restaurants soon in places like Bushwick, Sunset Park, and Bed-Stuy, but with their pies served at and 310 Bowery Bar, working concessions has been a major expansion tactic for them, too.
