Husband-and-wife team Matt and Emily Hyland have hit it big with their creative takes on two distinct pizza styles. First came Emily, a tiny pizzeria in Clinton Hill with a wood-burning oven. It was a quick hit, thanks to the couple’s unique take on both Neapolitan/New Haven–style pizza and hospitality. Just two years later, Emmy Squared opened in Williamsburg. A love-letter to Detroit-style pan pizza, the newcomer offers a style of ‘za not readily found in the borough or even New York City.

Emily may be known for dishing out solid Neapolitan pizzas, pasta and Italian small plates; however, locals alike come here for the Emmy Burger: Fleisher’s pasture-raised dry-aged beef, caramelized onions, Grafton cheddar, ‘Emmy’ sauce, and cornichon on a pretzel bun. Pro tip: skip the pizza, and opt for this beast of a burger.

At the newest outpost, Emmy Squared in Williamsburg, it’s melded with the Detroit-style crust they’re so famous for and topped with those classic burger ingredients: Fleishers beef, American cheese, Sammy sauce, pickles and mizuna lettuce. But between us, this pie is an off-menu secret, only available at the burger bar downstairs when you say the word.
