This is a spectacular pizza. The pizza has a great bite to it. I think it’s from the pecorino but it could be from the garlic too. The best thing is the bread. The crust and the undercarriage has a great char just like New Haven. Plus the pizza is perfectly thin. The pizza sauce is pretty good but it’s not what really stands out. The only draw back is that it cost $28. I also recommend the clam pizza, very tasty.

It’s a good slice for an artisanal sort of brick oven style pizza. Nothing crazy special.

8.6 honestly higher than I expected. First review, I understand the 1 bite rule and the standard. That bite was over whelming and I don’t think many spots will top this.

This place has very similar vibes to Bread and Salt in Jersey City - which is definitely a compliment. The shop doubles as a bakery with a healthy selection of sides (I gotta come back for the meatballs). Initially, I found it curious that they would open up around the corner from two other pizza power house (Emmy Squared, which also does squares, and L’industrie). However, Leo has clearly carved out its own niche. Its countertop display hosts an inviting array of squares with options that make it difficult to choose: sliced meatball, mushroom, sausage and peppers, even squash. They are clearly ingredient centered, and the results speak for themselves. The crust is flavorful - almost sourdoughy (though that might reflect the smells of sourdough permeating the joint, not that I’m complaining), but without a high rise to the crumb. The result is a nice tight crumb that isn’t dense or too chewy. And it gets a nice crisp too. While you could get a quick slice here, you’re better suited setting aside a few minutes to enjoy this fresh space, try a glass of wine or cup of coffee, and relax in Leo’s own corner of Williamsburg. Pro tip: get the Rossa (plain tomato sauce) slice. It’s 🔥
