With the hype and frequent media representation, the pizza shop seems to be something of a celebrity itself.
How It All Started
The first Joe’s Pizza opened in 1975 in Greenwich Village on Carmine Street. The pizza shop is also called the Greenwich Village Institution.
Joe’s Pizza was started by Joe Pozzuoli, who moved to the U.S. from Naples, Italy. Despite his Italian heritage, Joe created his pizzeria to feature classic New York-style pizzas.
Over the 47 years of Joe’s Pizza’s existence, the pizzeria has expanded to four more branches in New York and one in Michigan.
The Greenwich Village Institution’s six locations are:
- Joe’s Pizza Greenwich Village (Original Location) on Carmine Street
- Joe’s Pizza Union Square on 150 East 14th Street
- Joe’s Pizza Williamsburg on 216 Bedford Avenue (One of the best pizza spots in Williamsburg)
- Joe’s Pizza Times Square on 1435 Broadway (One of the best pizza spots in Times Square)
- Joe’s Pizza Fulton Street on 124 Fulton Street
- Joe’s Pizza Michigan at Ann Arbor, Michigan
Joe’s Pizza Williamsburg
Joe’s Pizza Williamsburg is the branch located on Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn. It was the third branch to open. The branch opened in 2015.
The owners picked the Williamsburg spot because they wanted to carry on the corner shop tradition that started with the first Joe’s pizza shop.
This Williamsburg pizza spot is located beside the Bedford Avenue Station, making it easy to stop and get a quick bite.
Don’t be discouraged if you see a massive line outside (and you probably will); the line moves fast and you would be in and out in no time.
The large demand keeps them constantly pumping pizzas out of the oven. That means you get to enjoy fresh pizza! Unlike some alternatives that might keep reheating till someone comes to get it.
You can order by the slice or by full pie and get your pizza to go. If you would rather sit and savor your slices, outdoor sitting is also available.
The Williamsburg branch Experience
You’ll find many tourists and locals trying to get into the pizzeria.
The inside of the pizzeria is small and cozy. There’s the main counter with the available pizzas on display. There are a few seats opposite the counter and a wall showcasing all the celebrities that have been to Joe’s pizza shops.
The staff are friendly and laid back but they make sure to keep the lines moving fast and efficiently. You can ask for them to reheat your pizza if it’s not fresh out of the oven.
The staff is also said to be a ‘no nonsense’ staff. If you come around here often enough, you might see a little drama break out.
Joe’s Pizza is well known for consistent quality across its branches. The Williamsburg branch is no exception. This branch offers the same recipes, styles, and toppings as the very first branch.
