Village Voice's Description
New York City isn't short on pizzas. But how many places boast deep-fried varieties? None that we know, save for Forcella, a cozy Neapolitan hangout in Williamsburg. To make the montanara (the eatery’s crowning jewel), pizzaiolo Giulio Adriani first submerges the dough in oil, creating a base that billows with air but keeps its chewiness while crackling bubbles pock the edges. He then lightly sauces the disc and polka dots it with house-made mozzarella before baking. Calories be damned--this masterpiece of symphonic textures is unlike any pizza you've had before. About two dozen other red and white pies are available here, but nothing comes close to this celebration of tasty caloric excess.
Tips from foursquare
Try the mind-blowing Montanara pizza, deep-fried and finished in a wood-fired oven for a chewy yet featherlight crust. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
First-class pizza in all respects, but there are a couple of unique items here. Try the montanara, a pizza whose crust is first FRIED(!) then baked. The carbonara is an interesting brunch option.
Try the pizza!
the fried pizza is a nice specialty. also recommend the calzone!
Don't fret Motorino closing. Forcella is in a league of it's own!
