Milkflower’s story has yet to be written, but its owners, New Jersey-raised brothers Peter and Danny Aggelatos, are off to a strong start. Their wood-fired Neapolitan-style pies with homemade mozzarella are so good that Astoria residents have been promoting Milkflower as the place their Manhattanite friends have to come visit to finally prove how cool they are to live there. Though at this point, they’d probably rather their friends stayed home so it’s easier to snag a pie. The Aggelatos brothers (who have said they most admire Motorino) haven’t been around long, but the 11 pizzas on their menu, including the Queen (their Margherita) have made a strong case for quick consideration as one of the country’s best pies. — Arthur Bovino, 8/27/2014

Named one of the The Daily Meal's 101 Best Pizzas in America in 2014.

Foursquare Tips

  • The wood-fired pizzas come with toppings such as oyster and shiitake mushrooms, spicy soppressata, red chili flakes and honey and Brussels sprouts, egg and truffle oil.
  • Try the Brussels sprouts pizza - yum!
  • Wood-fired pizza somewhere between New York- and Neapolitan-style, topped with excellent mozzarella made in-house in a warm, friendly space.
  • Cozy. Unpretentious. And the brussel sprout pizza was nothing short of amazing. The meat and cheese combo is worth a try as well. A phenomenal addition to a growing neighborhood.
  • One of the best pizzas in nyc lives here--get the brussels sprout pizza and thank me later.
  • Get into this buratta!
  • The salads are amazing! Best pizza in Queens!
  • The Brussels Sprout Pizza plus a glass of Pinot is a mandatory move.
  • Damn you, Van Dammer and your beautiful brussel sprouts! Throw some soppressata on it, but not without also filling up on the burrata, octopus, and roasted vegetable appetizers first! So happy.
  • Burrata and Brussel sprout pizza. Done and done.
  • Best original pizza in the neighborhood. Some call it artisanal, I call it finger lickin good. Meatballs and sauce here is a MUST! You're welcome.
  • You cannot go wrong here. It's premium farm to table w/ slightly higher prices for the area because of said quality. I haven't left here without an ear to ear satisfied grin on my face, ever.
  • Best pizza everrrr.
  • Van Dammer. Do it.
  • Plenty of exposed brick, reclaimed wood, and soft lighting. Menu includes salads, crostini, charcuterie, and 10 pizzas. The Aggelatos Bros. are making all the mozzarella for their pizzas in house.
  • Incredible service and such compassion to vegans and people with food allergies! And a beautiful backyard to drink seltzer water in!!!
  • Get the toast plate. Incredible.
  • Quite possibly the best pizza in Queens. The focus on high quality handmade and locally-sourced ingredients (some as local as the rooftop farm down the street!) really creates an exquisite experience!
  • spicy soppressata and the queen fasho.
  • Only beer, no wine or liquor. The wood fired pizzas are sized for one. Sauce was delicious, pizza is not overly cheesy. The grilled shishito peppers are amazing.
