Sometimes simple is best. Two-in-one shampoo and conditioner, E equals MC squared, Murphy beds. Thanks to these, you don’t need to worry about how well your Herbal Essences conditioner will work with your Pantene shampoo, or the best place to put a bed in a 200-square foot apartment, or how mass and energy are related in the universe. Best Pizza is another simple solution for something just as important - where to find great pizza-by-the-slice in Williamsburg.

Everything about Best Pizza, starting with the name, is simple and great. The one-room space in Williamsburg has a few tables, and a menu above the register lists the five types of slices cooked in the wood-fired oven and served on white paper plates. The grandma square is doughy and cheesy and topped with very good tomatoes - but the best thing here is the white pie with ricotta and pecorino. It has a charred crust sprinkled with sesame seeds, and caramelized onions that taste like spoonfuls of berry jam.

Best Pizza could get more elaborate with certain things, but naming itself Margherita Mama’s and having candlelit tables would not help solve peoples’ need for a high-quality neighborhood slice option. Their pizza does that all on its own.

This is everything you want out of a classic slice of cheese pizza. The tomatoes are sweet and tangy, the fresh cheese stretches like the inside of a mozzarella stick when you bite it, and the crust doesn’t sag at the end.

We’d put this up against pretty much any slice in the city. The ricotta and pecorino are creamy and salty, and the rim of the crust is charred and topped with sesame seeds. Also, these caramelized onions taste like berry jam, which is both confusing and very enjoyable.

A good square slice with a lot of cheese that melts over the crust. This is pretty doughy and soft, though, and we haven’t figured out how to eat this without dropping a fair amount onto our laps.

These also come in the meatball sub, but we prefer to save the bread here for the pizza, and get these by themselves. The tomato sauce is great, so save some pizza crust for dipping.
