All good things come out of Brooklyn, don’t they? The Dodgers, my Grandma, and damn good pizza.

And eventually, all good things that come out of Brooklyn migrate somewhere else. The Dodgers went to Los Angeles, my Grandma went to Century Village, and Authentic Brooklyn Pizza came to Boca Raton.

Located just east of Interstate 95 on Palmetto Park Rd., Authentic Brooklyn Pizza (ABP) currently resides in a building that doesn’t even house its very title. Under the sign “Mario the Baker” – the name of the previous tenants – ABP is still getting settled in nearly three months after opening. They don’t need that much work, really, because the sign will eventually change. But the pizza – the pizza should stay exactly the way it is.

During my recent visit, I had the luxury of eating the pepperoni pie. Large slices of salty pepperoni with a light, slightly crunchy, thin crust. If I had more room in my stomach, I would have eaten more. That pizza was amazing.

Since I’m not a big fan of inordinate amounts of sauce, I’m glad Tony the manager isn’t, either. A very little amount of sauce – what some of the other pizza eaters considered too little – was absolutely perfect for me. My theory is this: if there’s too much sauce, then there isn’t enough pizza. This pie had a great balance of all ingredients.

Me and my other pizza-eaters that day had the opportunity to try to meatball pizza as well. Sort of like a meatball sub (but less sauce, thankfully), the pizza had sliced meatballs that were the same size as the large pepperoni pizza. They were a little spicy, but I actually thought that’s what made the pizza so tasty.

I give Authentic Brooklyn Pizza 7 out of 8 slices. Maybe if they get their name on their restaurant, I can reconsider my rating.

    I lived in New York for over 45 years, I was so happy to find this gem! The pizza is really NY good. I also tried the Chicken Parm & Veal Marsala also outstanding!

    We went there for take-out a few weeks ago and chatted up The Current State of Baseball while our baker patted out the dough into a pizza shell. Topped it, slide it into the oven, and rotated it a few times before it hit the box. Fun time at the shop and good eatin's. Strongly recommended.

    We just stopped by today after watching the local news last night, they promised to tell us where the best pizza in town was. For sure this is the best pizza we have ever had, thin, crispy and NOT greasy! And it's in our neighborhood! We'll be back!

    Unfortunately, I have nothing good to say about so called “Authentic Brooklyn Pizza”. My pizza was average at best and, for how expensive it was, a real disappointment. The atmosphere was, in a word, uncomfortable. The place was dirty in general. The TV was playing 80s music videos with no sound and i couldn't wait to get out of there. i would like to say I'll give it another shot some day but it probably won't even stay open long enough judging by how empty and disappointing the place was.

    This place is the worst experience I have ever had with pizza. I ordered a delivery pie and it showed up over 2 hours later than the allotted 45 min period I was told. I called several times to find out where the pie was b/c god forbid I am actually hungry. The girl who answers the phone has a nasty attitude despite the fact they screwed up. The pizza itself was greasy and disgusting along with the garlic knots. These people unfortunately lack the common sense to run a business properly and do not even have a good product to make up for their stupidity. If I could give it negative stars, I would.

    If “the pizza expert” has been there “several times”, why do we have to read a review from Dori Zinn? Nobody cares what she thinks.

    My family loves this place.  I do prefer to eat it fresh rather than have it  delivered.  You have to try the Italian Nachos…Great local friendly place

    just want to say that we ordered a large pizza the other night, to go, and when we got home and opened the box the pizza was not only “not round” but was Very Small and dry. We have had pizza from them many,many times and were always satisfied. I called the restaurant to complain and was told that the owner was not there, would call me back the next day. Did not hear from them. Called again 2 days later and told “very abruptly” that the owner was now on vacation. Sounds like they don’t want to be bothered…Will not give them NO more business. Guess this is why restaurants go out of business!!
