Paul Giannone went from punching keys to putting together the key ingredients to make some of the best oven pizzas in the entire United States.
Starting up from his New Jersey home with an oven he put together himself, Paul left his career in information technology to pursue his passion for cooking and pizza baking.
After about two years of serving friends and family in his home, he moved to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and opened the first Paulie Gee pizza place in 2010.
Since then he has expanded massively across the United States and opened restaurants in Chicago, Columbus, and New Orleans.
Their most popular menu item, Hell boy has been perfected over the past decade to produce one of the most wholesome pizza recipes you might ever try.
The restaurants are warm bubbly locations with moderate dining areas and simple decor. Paul says it himself that he doesn’t want a wall between the staff and his customers and if you check out their reviews online you would see that he manages to create an environment where staff and customers discuss freely.

This location is dine-in only, the pie is served straight out of the oven, and if you listen closely you might still hear the crunch in the crust.
Now Franklin street is a whole other Paulie Gee universe, and Paul went retro with the Franklin street slice shop.
Dining over here is like having an awesome slice at a 60-style Pops shop and No, no one serves your pizza to you in roller skates but the restaurants feature black and white floors, wood panels, colorful booths, and bright lighting.
The air over here is more hip and fun, and they offer both dining and delivery services. The menu at the slice shop focuses more on New York-style slices and classic pizza recipes but you can still enjoy a square of the famous Hellboy or Freddy Prinze.

The Hellboy Pizza is One of Paulie Gee’s most famous pies and over the years a slice of the famous oven delicacy has only gotten better. The pie is topped with mozzarella, Italian tomatoes, Berkshire soppressata Piccante, Parmigiano Reggiano, and spicy honey.
All the ingredients come together for a magnificent waltz of taste, its delicate texture and coordinating flavors make it one of the best oven pizza recipes in the United States. Your taste bud would experience heaven on earth all through your journey around this awesome pie.
The Delboy, another one of their famous pies, is just like the Hellboy but without the spicy honey, but trust me on this one, you’re going to want a generous amount of that honey in every bite.
