It’s pizza for uno!

A new brick-oven pizzeria in Brooklyn Heights is getting personal — with authentic Italian-style pies for one.

Dellarocco’s of Brooklyn, which features an imported wood-burning oven, is on Hicks street near Montague, serving up small pizzas with fresh and simple ingredients — that have a hand-crafted feel.

Co-owner Greg Markman, who also runs Heights Café at the corner down the street, said his talented Italian chef prepares 12 and 16-inch pies using a traditional style that calls for obsessive attention to detail, from the sauce to the oven temperature.

“It’s true to the Neapolitan style,” Markman said.

The menu ranges in pizza prices from $11 to $20, including a zucchini cream and burrata pie, one with truffle sauce, and, of course, a classic margarita.

The eatery also offers local beers on tap, handmade cannolis ($6) and a variety of salads such as one with goat cheese, mango and pistachio ($10).

Markman had to rush off the phone to host a “soft opening” on Monday, no doubt busy getting appetites warmed up for the July 31 grand opening the next day, but he said he hopes patrons will include tourists and neighbors.

“We’re excited to be in Brooklyn Heights,” he said.

Della Rocco’s of Brooklyn [214 Hicks St. between Montague and Remsen streets in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 858–1010].
