Brooklyn Nibbles: Acqua Santa's Pizza vs. Fornino

From GL Correspondent Owen Roberts comes the following observation about two popular Williamsburg spots for pizza:

I've heard that Fornino on Bedford Ave (187 Bedford) has been called "the best pizza in New York." I'm not one to create hierarchies, especially when it comes to pizza, but I went to Acqua Santa (556 Driggs) only a block away on Driggs and N 7th Street, on Thursday night, and the pie I got there was definitely superior to anything I've had at Fornino. I had the "Ballerina" pizza, which I would recommend to anyone. It's a margarita pizza with (I forget the Italian names for everything) basically salad on top, which you spread out and then fold the slices over it and eat it like sandwich. Our server was more than happy to explain it to me—I think I looked a little confused when he brought it out—with a good sense of humor about it. It's not cheaper than Fornino, but the difference in taste is worth the extra block.
