Tony & Tina’s Pizzeria (2483 Arthur Ave.). The minute you step inside, you’ll see the Albanian flag, a black double-headed eagle on a bright red background, and portrait of Mother Teresa, perhaps the most famous Albanian after John Belushi.
The pizza here is quite good, but turn instead to the bureks, flaky Balkan pies cooked in the same stacked ovens as the pizzas.
The best filling and one rarely found in the five boroughs is pumpkin, though the spinach, ground meat, and cheese pies are almost as good.
Buy a cup of homemade yogurt for dipping.
