A taste of Brooklyn in Adelaide

Any pizza lover worth their salt knows Brooklyn is home to some of the world's best pizzerias - the beloved Totonno's, iconic Grimaldi's, Famous Joe's and trendy Roberta's are just some of Brooklyn's finest. In fact, there are countless blogs, books, television shows and even bus tours dedicated to Brooklyn's love of New Yorkapolitan Pizza.

Here's what's makes a slice New Yorkapolitan:

  • Derived from the Neapolitan style pizza, the dough is made from high-gluten bread flour and the base is hand-tossed.

  • The hand-tossed base results in a thin crust which remains crisp on the edge, whilst the middle of the pizza flexible and usually folded in half when eaten.

  • New York-style pizzas where originally baked in coal brick ovens - today many pizzerias use woodfire or electric stone based ovens to achieve the same controlled high temperature and crisp base.

    New Yorkapolitan Pizza takes those New York-style pizzas and gives them an extra blast of heat and shorter cook time (like Neapolitan pizza) to blend the best of both styles.

    Feeling hungry? Well, you don't need to book a flight to Brooklyn to enjoy traditional New Yorkapolitan pizza! Just head to Adelaide's newest pizzeria, Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria, on the corner of King William and Grenfell Street (formerly the home of Sushi Train).

    Owned and managed by a true New Yorker, Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria is a celebration of Brooklyn's historical food scene and dynamic culture.

    The premium pizzeria is fitted out with rustic, industrial decor and comfortably sits around 25 patrons. In this intimate space, you can enjoy only the finest New Yorkapolitan pizza.

    It starts with the dough, made with only 5 ingredients - Italian 00 flour, water, fresh yeast, salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Many other pizza places use dough conditioners, relaxers, sugar and different oils just in the dough but Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria keeps it simple with only natural premium ingredients. The dough is then proved for 1 to 2 days in the fridge for a nice slow fermentation.

    Furthermore Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria offers no fixed menu! Everything is custom made - choose your own sauce, your favourite toppings and then your pizza will be baked in an electric Italian stone base oven (400 degrees C). In just two and a half minutes - you'll get to indulge in thin crust, puffy cornice, fast fired, New Yorkapolitan pizza, custom made your way! Enjoy slice after slice of crispy (not crunchy) crust, layered with smooth tomato sauce made from Californian vine-ripened tomatoes and your favourite toppings.

    Thanks to the high temperature fast fired baking, the New Yorkapolitan pizza offers the perfect blend of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It's no wonder Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria is quickly gaining a reputation as the home of the best pizza crust in Adelaide - they have even been selected as one of Best 5 Pizzerias in Adelaide in an upcoming Channel 44 feature.

    Complementing the dining experience is a selection of salads, sides and desserts.

    Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria is open Monday to Saturday, for lunch and dinner (Closed Sunday).
