Tucked away in Bay Ridge is the original location of Peppino’s.
What started as a family effort to bring wood oven pizzas to the neighborhood quickly turned into an institution, the pizza joint soon began to rake in accolades. Should you decide to make a trip to Peppino’s yourself, skip the difficult decision-making and indulge in these highlights from the Peppino’s Brooklyn menu.
Peppino’s Brooklyn menu
Regulars of Peppino’s can’t seem to get enough of the Bruschetta. Fresh Italian bread lightly topped with tomato, basil, garlic onion and olive oil, this beloved appetizer serves as a succulent preview of the famous pizzas on Peppino’s Brooklyn menu. It’s also worth seeking out on its own.
“Ask about it!” reads the Pizza Dunno section of the Peppino’s Brooklyn menu. Do so and you’ll be told that it’s a unique hybrid of a pizza margherita and ricotta calzone. Of course, no description can quite convey how delicious of a warm-up this perfectly portioned appetizer really is.
No one is quite sure what they are doing to the prosciutto at Peppino’s, but, whatever it is, it has people clamoring for more. It’s known for its presence on the hero sandwich, but prosciutto also makes for one of the best toppings on Peppino’s beloved margherita pizzas.
Grilled Chicken Italiano
The sentiment among Grilled Chicken Italiano fans at Peppino’s is that ordering it once means ordering nothing else for the rest of your visits. For this grilled chicken masterpiece topped with roasted peppers, mozzarella and balsamic vinegar, it’s worth that risk.
Famous Philly Cheese Steak
This is perhaps the most beloved item on the Peppino’s Brooklyn menu. Generous helpings of beef are stuffed into fresh Italian bread and topped with tomatoes and lettuce before getting drizzled with cheese. Feel free to take a look at the regular rotation of special cheese steaks, but the original reigns supreme.This entry was posted in Restaurant Guide
