Roberta’s Pizza
261 Moore St., Bklyn
Where else can you eat wood-fired brick oven pizza topped with vegetables from a rooftop greenhouse in the backyard, and catch glimpses of Heritage Radio Network taping live in a converted shipping container underneath said greenery? On an industrial corner of Bushwick, where Roberta‘s is humbly situated. The formula might not fly alone if the pizzas—and urban farming efforts that Roberta’s is frequently fostering—were anything to sneeze at. But their pies are some of the city’s finest, with intense toppings like guanciale and eggs. It shouldn’t be possible, but the fried chicken is truly great, too.
