Union Pizza Works is a cash-only neighborhood Neopolitan pizza place in the part of Bushwick where people go on graffiti tours. The space itself is massive, with a front patio area that would be perfectly appropriate for a down-to-earth wedding photoshoot or just a nice Thursday night with your dog and a 12-inch pizza. The pies here are all thin, and have a floppy chewy crust. We especially like the focaccia pizza with 24-hour cured prosciutto di parma, melted mozzarella, and arugula. It’s built like a sandwich (essentially two pizzas on top of each other) and we think more pizza places should follow their lead. We’d also suggest supplementing your pizza with a salad or an excellent $13 bowl of mussels, but make sure to stay clear of the Napoli pie with capers and anchovies - it’s way too salty.
