I’ve always thought that Fornino in Williamsburg was underrated, especially for a place in such a prime spot on Bedford Avenue. It might not be worth trekking out to Avenue J for, but there are few places to get pizza of this quality in the area. Motorino gets so much more press and attention just a few blocks away. So much so that Fornino was essentially overlooked in pizza features by The New York Times and New York Magazine earlier this year.
Perhaps this has caused some people to drop Fornino off their “must try” lists of New York City pizza places. Well this week, you can’t find a better reason to add it back on. Today through Friday, they are celebrating their 5th anniversary with $5 Margherita pies (via Slice). They are delicious. And now they are cheap. Go get one. You won’t be disappointed.
