F&F Pizzeria is a pizza place from the people behind Frankies 457 Spuntino and Franks Wine Bar, and it also happens to be located in a converted garage between these two very good Italian spots in Carroll Gardens. But unlike its neighbors, F&F is a counter-service slice shop with a rotating list of minimal toppings that you eat in slice form or as a whole pie. The crust is crispy, the sauce is incredible, and the cheese tastes like it was just delivered by a friendly dairy farmer hours before it was baked. There’s a nice sidewalk patio out front where you can stare lovingly at your half-finished slice, and wonder how many of the world’s problems could be solved by bringing together a few people who treat bread like a vitamin.
Hot Sausage & Brown Butter Sage
Whether you’re ordering a slice or a whole pie, prioritize the sage and brown butter sausage flavor combo — a pizza remix of a popular pasta dish at Frankies 457 Spuntino that proves everything is better in pizza form.
