Sean Evans Takes a Brooklyn Pizza Tour with Paulie Gee | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Apr 25, 2017
  • Sean Evans rides hard for his beloved Chicago deep dish, but regional pride can't blind him for the glories of a perfect New York pie. To better understand the legacy of Brooklyn pizza, he enlists the help of slice sherpa Paul Giannone-owner of Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint-to introduce him to some of the borough's old-school pizza joints. They end the tour back at Paulie Gee's to make a special Neapolitan pie fit for a spicy-food connoisseur like Sean.

    It's interesting because everything PG does is so hip and cool today but he's older so it gives it more credibility. There are alot of young restaurant people now who do cool things but the food is lame. I'd visit PGs for sure.

    Paulie is a doll. Can't wait to go and eat his pizza. There is a lot of good pizza... but wood fire and coal fire are the best if done well. Whole pizza will always be better than slices (the can't compare based on physics).

    The interactions and respect between the owners of these different restaurants is awesome! Here in NEPA (old forge area, the so called "pizza capital"), owners get nasty with each other often. No respect, and honestly, most of the pizza here is vastly overrated by my fellow locals.
