Pizza is about the Pleasures of Life…
Storytelling, Traditions, Secret Recipes, Family, Culture

Imagine pizza so incredibly delicious that New Yorkers and tourists-in-the-know happily stand in line for three hours to get a pie or even just a slice. What’s the secret to such devotion? Dom DeMarco’s mouthwatering, award-winning pies are carefully handcrafted using closely guarded recipes and quality imported ingredients.

So, who is this legendary pizza maker?

Domenico DeMarco immigrated to New York from the Province of Caserta in Italy as a young man in 1959 hailing from a family of bakers and master pizziaolos. He worked as a farmer on Long Island and in 1964, opened Di Fara Pizza on Avenue J in Brooklyn, growing it into an iconic family business. For over 45 years, DeMarco and Di Fara Pizza have received lavish praise from neighborhood folks, celebrities, chowhounds, internationally renowned food critics, and infamous chefs. And, in a town where competition for the title “best pizza” is fierce, this landmark has often been named “#1 Pizzeria in New York” and “best Italian Restaurant” by prestigious publications including Zagat, New York Magazine, and New York Daily News.
