Top This: The Hellboy (à la Paulie Gee's)

Three years ago, Paulie Giannone told then-music supervisor Mike Kurtz he could apprentice at his newly opened pizzeria, Paulie Gee's. Mike told Paulie, "Next week, when I come in, I'm going to bring my condiment." It wasn't long before the two pizzaioli figured out that Mike's chile and vinegar-spiked honey and Paulie's Dellboy pizza (a salty, meaty, piquant pizza made with spicy sopressata, fresh mozz, and parmigiano reggiano) were a match made in pizza heaven. And that's how the aptly named Hellboy, a must-order pie on the Paulie Gee's menu, was born. More

The Monte Christo at Paulie Gee's Brunch? Absolutely Craveworthy

UPDATE: Paulie Gee's is no longer offering brunch service. [Photograph: Adam Kuban] The last thing I wanted for brunch yesterday was more pizza. I spent all day Saturday prepping for, cooking, and cleaning up a nine-pie pizza bridal shower.* But ... but ... The Monte Christo pizza ($15) at Paulie Gee's new brunch service is outrageously good. Just when I thought I didn't want to eat another bite of the crusty, saucey, cheesy stuff for at least another week, this amazing combination of salty-sweet, crisp-chewy pizza awesomeness pulled me right back in. Made with mild gouda, ham, and a drizzle... More

Daily Slice: Carmine's Original Pizza, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Sort of the opposite that other old-school NYC icon, Joe's, the slice at Carmine's Original is fairly loaded with cheese. Not too much, but enough that it overpowers the sauce a little bit. You get ample greasiness, if that's your thing, along with a tangy, slightly sharp flavor. The crust is thinner than most and perfectly crisp — after a reheat, that is. And a well-executed reheat, I might add. Not too hot, just right. More

Greenpoint, Brooklyn: Paulie Gee's

Scenes from Paulie Gee's

After a series of tweets back and forth last Monday, I found myself agreeing to meet Always Hungry's Arthur Bovino and Maryse Chevriere at Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint. This was my first actual visit. I had been on a friends and family night three weeks ago and once before that to scope out the space while it was under construction. I had told myself I'd be going as a "civilian" (ie., in a nonreview capacity), but I couldn't help snapping a few photos. Here's yet another gallery. (Are you getting sick of Paulie Gee yet?!?) Not much new in it... More

Paulie Gee's Opening Tonight in Greenpoint

A reminder, in case you don't already know: Paulie Gee's is opening tonight at 6 p.m. We were able to go to a friends and family night on Saturday at the new Greenpoint wood-oven pizzeria, and our man J.

When contacted for comment, Mr. Giannone said, "Not yet. I'm up to my ass in alligators." Update: We now have the menu. It appears after the jump. Paulie Gee's 60... More

Openings: Williamsburg's Vinnie's to Drop Second Location in Greenpoint

[Photograph: Adam Kuban] Vinnie's Pizzeria, on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. Known for its vegan and vegetarian options as well as for its more outré slices (mac-and-cheese slice; breakfast slice, described on sandwich board above). And for its T.hanks trash can.

Openings: Paulie Gee's, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

This has been in the works for some time, but it's now official: Paulie Gee (aka Paul Gianonne) has signed the lease on the former Paloma space at 60 Greenpoint Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and is hoping to open Paulie Gee's by December. Anyone familiar with the Paulie Gee mythos won't find it surprising that his place will be a wood-fired Neapolitan-style joint. The oven is being built in Naples now and will be shipped over soon. Gianonne says he'll be the sole pizzaman at Paulie Gee's but will have an assistant trained and ready to step in at... More

Individual-Size, Slice-Accompanying Pizza Wine in Greenpoint

newyorkshitty.com Miss Heather of the blog newyorkshitty.com finds Pizza Wine at a Greenpoint liquor store. It's a small 375 ml bottle of wine that claims to have been crafted specifically for pizza. At $3 a bottle (even with tax included) this isn't really much of a bargain. If one bottle is designed to accompany two slices, I'd guesstimate it would take five bottles to match a ten-slice pie. That totals to $15. For that kind of money, you can buy a couple six packs of decent beer. Ten-slice pie? Where is Miss Heather getting a ten-slice pie? Note: A... More
