Paulie Gee’s: Come for the Pizza, Stay for Paulie


60 Greenpoint Ave.
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11222


A few weeks ago (I’m a bad blogger, I know, I know…) my fellow blogger friend Jason, of I Dream of Pizza, and I headed to Paulie Gee’s in Greenpoint. For me, it was a first! As for Jason, he was a regular.

When I arrived to meet Jason he was actually waiting at the front door with owner Paulie Giannone, catching up over the last few months. Paulie was filling him in on the fact that they just got their liquor license, and the status of the slice joint opening up around the corner from Greenpoint Avenue. Jason was catching him up on the fact that he got married last summer. That’s when I knew Jason and Paulie were on extremely friendly terms. “You’ve gotta bring Michelle back in!” Paulie said, referring to Jason’s wife.

After some initial catching up, Paulie then sat us immediately — the benefits of going out on a frigid winter night. No wait for a table! Now came the hard part; Picking what pizzas to order off a menu of 24 pies! Oh, but wait. Jason shared with me the SECRET pizza menu with 11 additional offerings (scroll all the way to the bottom of the regular online menu).


The pizzas are individual sizes, so we assumed we’d get at least two to share. We settled on the Red Hot Cherry Jones with fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola cheese, prosciutto di parma, dried bing cherries, and Brooklyn’s Mike’s Hot Honey. HEAVEN.
