F&F Pizzeria is a new 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 $25 pie. The crust is crispy, the sauce is incredible, and the cheese tastes like it came straight from a cow in the back. There are no chairs, tables, or even ledges here, but you can stand on the curb out front, 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.
