Last weekend Mike, Sean, Justin and I had the unique pleasure of welcoming three Baltimore Pizza Club ambassadors to Brooklyn. When Aran, Jen and Chuck arrived, we knew there was only one place to take them: the fabulous Paulie Gee's!

After going to see Serious Lunch, it took us a while to have a beer and find Chuck and then a while to take the subway back to Greenpoint. Anyway, we got to Paulie Gee's at 11:02 pm not knowing that they close at 11. (It's cool, don't worry, everyone in New York eats dinner at 11 pm.) Luckily Mrs. Gee (that's Paulie's wife, if you're keeping track) was acting as hostess and found us charming so she sneaked us to a table.

The pizzas are kind of small, just bigger than personal size, so the seven of us shared six pizzas. Sadly, we forgot to take pictures until almost all of the pies were gone. So you'll have to use your imagination with this one piece:

Some notes:
regina, a classic margherita pizza: delish!
greenpointer (salad on a pizza) Justin: "I like this one because it's so original. It's not just a good pizza, I know I'll never have this pizza anywhere else."
mootz (super garlic white pizza with basil) Jen moans
Hell Boy (described as Fior di Latte, Italian Tomatoes, Sopressata Picante and Parmigiano Reggiano, with Mike’s HOT Honey) yes, honey. on a pizza. I also learned that Sopressata Picante is just a fancy word for pepperoni
porkpie white (basically a sausage and pepperoni pizza, but with more garlic and a white sauce, not red) Everyone agreed it was good, but it was too regular, not original enough
anise and a nephew (fennel! on a pizza!) Aran: what is this? then what is this? they're both fennel!?!?!?!

Jen is sad that there's no more pizza

We were split pretty half and half between giving this pizza 7.5 out of 8 slices and 8 out of 8 slices. The two 7.5 slice dissenters were Aran: "I didn't love how the crust was crispy but there was a floppy part in the middle" and Sean (with the crazy eyes): "almost perfect, I just wish the pizzas were bigger". Jen especially liked the atmosphere, which she described as cozy.

Overall, this is wonderful pizza. The next time any BPCers are in New York, I would highly recommend a visit.

Great write-up.

How excited would you be if PGees opened in Baltimore?

Stay tuned.....
