Wheated, 905 Church Ave., between East 11th St. and Coney Island Ave., 347-240-2813

What it is: A small but stylish pizza, beer and cocktail place on booming Church Avenue. There’s a lively bar scene up front and tables in the back for more committed diners.

Why we love it: Because nobody here is gluten-free.

What to order: Salads are so big you’ll need a scythe to get through them. Inventive sourdough pizzas named (somewhat randomly) after Brooklyn neighborhoods dare you to try them all. With toppings that range from pecorino-romano to fennel sausage and figs, you can’t go wrong with any of the pies, but the Windsor Terrace (plum tomatoes, garlic, red onions, basil, fresh & aged mozzarella, Pecorino-Romano, hot sopressata and red bell pepper) is a standout. 

Pro tip: NYC pizza poobah Adam Kuban recently put Wheated’s jalapeño and sausage pie on his list of “8 pizzas that haunt my dreams.”
