Over recent weeks, I've heard of "Brooklyn" pizza. As I live in Staten Island, many, many pizzerias and restaurants here advertise "Brooklyn Pizza". I always assumed that that name was an appeal to attract the Brooklyn transplants here. But now I've heard mention of "Brooklyn Pizza" outside of Staten Island.

This pizza has a very thin crust (my personal favorite) which I thought was a NYC type (including all the boroughs and suburbs). This pizza reminds me of my old neighborhood's pizzeria, Castiglione's on Quentin Rd. Dom Castiglione ("Castig") was a neighbor kid whose father owned and ran the restaurant. Need I say (it hurts!) that a waxed-paper thin slice cost 10 cents, a whole pie, $1. Sausage was extra.

Has anyone else heard of "Brooklyn" pizza? What's your fave? Thin or thick (Chicago?) crust? Is there a Bronx or Hicksville variant? Just curious!
