Verde Coal Oven in Bushwick
Verde Coal Oven is a Bushwick pizzeria w/ a 104 year old underground coal oven that cooks up some ridiculous fare like a ~*~BREAKFAST PIZZA~*~.
Officially christened “Buon Giorno,” this pie is the pizza of my dreams. It’s as if breakfast and pizza got together and had a beautiful, mouthwatering baby topped w/ goat cheese, potato, tomato sauce, fresh mozz, and three sunny side up eggs (it’s originally served w/ house sausage, but I swapped it for caramelized onions).
This beautiful pie is crispy in all the right places (crust & taters), drippy where it needs to be (yolk), and cheesy everywhere else. It’s also served ALL DAY LONG so you can make breakfast/brunch time, anytime.
Verde also serves tasty, well-brewed coffee w/ reasonable prices. Their cappuccino is actually a cappuccino (not a latte), and a ticket to foam city. Everyone wants to go to foam city, right? Just me? OKAY. More foam for me.
The best part (for me) about Verde Coal Oven is that it’s less than a mile from my apartment (!!!). Pizza everyday.
In all seriousness, if you find yourself in Bushwick, pop in for some pizza and other goods (like homemade crusty bread, tomato sauce, and fresh mozz for sale).
