GreenBox Spotlight: Emily (Loves) Pizza

Over thirteen years ago, Matt & Emily fell in love over pizza. They haven’t looked back since. 

Tucked away in the corner of Brooklyn’s cozy Clinton Hill neighborhood, you’ll find Emily & Matt, their wood-fired pizza, and a welcoming spot that feels like home. You won’t ever want to leave.

Since fate brought them together (over pepperoni & olives), it was only fitting that Matt & Emily start their very own pizzeria. The spot at 919 Fulton Street just felt right, and in January of 2014, “Emily” was born. Emily loves pizza, after all. 

When you stop by Emily, you’ll find Matt in the kitchen, hand-mixing dough and making mozzarella from scratch. The smell of the wood-burning oven fills the cozy space, and exposed-brick lines the walls. The warmth & homeyness is unmistakable…and genuine. 

If you get the chance, Matt’s original "North Maple” is not to be missed. With fontina, mozzarella, Benton’s bacon, toasted pecans and yes – maple syrup, this pie is unlike any other. Similar to the taste of a Belgian waffle, it’s sure to be a standout. 

But of course, the “Emily” is a local go-to. Topped with mozzarella, pistachios, truffle sottocenere & honey, this is pizza you’ll remember for ages. It even took a top spot in AM New York’s “New Pies to Try.” 

Not feelin’ pizza? No problem. The Emmy Burger is to die for: dry aged beef on a pain au lait bun, topped with emmy aioli, charred onions, cornichon & 4-year aged grafton cheddar. A side of crispy, triple-cooked fries have us sold. 

Oh, and before you go, grab a “s’mores calzone” for dessert. No regrets.

While Emily Pizza hasn’t been around for long, their passion for pizza has the deepest of roots – in love & family. They care about the Earth, too, and we were delighted to see that their “pizza doesn’t travel without @greenboxny.”

Pizza, love & a space that feels like home. It’s worth crossing the bridge for.
