Some pizza is delicate and refined. Other pizza is minimalist, with just a touch of basil and olive oil to round things out. Rome To Brooklyn in Williamsburg falls into neither of these categories. The pizza here is as in-your-face as a hyper-confident 12-year-old with two favorite colors and a noteworthy stamp collection. Their barbecue chicken pie - which comes covered in gorgonzola and swirls of barbecue sauce - is the perfect example of this, but what you really want is the grandma slice with pepperoni. The dense, chewy crust sags under the weight of its toppings, which is an auspicious sign for a slice of pizza.
