Review: At Williamsburg Pizza, a slice of Brooklyn proves popular in Omaha

By Sarah Baker Hansen

Here’s a fun fact: The Williamsburg Pizza in Omaha — the one that opened just two months ago — is now the single busiest location of the New York-based chain of pizza restaurants operating in Brooklyn, Manhattan and various other NYC boroughs.

Yep. You read that right.

“It is our busiest location in the whole country,” said co-owner Matt Hodges, who opened the Omaha location with Williamsburg Pizza founder and Omaha native Aaron McCann.

This is actually Hodges’ second time having the busiest location of any one single restaurant in the country at a given moment: He also owns the Jimmy John’s franchise near 72nd & Dodge Street and, at one time, that shop boasted the same success.

“It’s some kind of a track record,” McCann said.

Both Hodges and McCann knew when they planned to open Williamsburg Pizza here that the city had an already stacked lineup of pizza joints, including several New York-style spots, like Frank’s and Noli’s, among others.

Still, after visiting New York and trying a selection of the pizzas, Hughes said he thought there was a place for Williamsburg in the heart of the Midwest.

After my two recent visits, I can see what they mean: The pizza is New York style, but with a twist. Williamsburg has two styles of pie: a Brooklyn-style thicker thin crust, with a super crunchy edge, and an even thicker-crusted grandma style lineup of pies — the bulk of the pizza menu — with a crust so crispy it’s almost fried. In my book, those pies land somewhere between a thick pan style and a Detroit style.

I liked each of the three pizzas we tried. The cup-and-char pepperoni on the grandma style crust might have been my favorite, with its crisp-edge pepperoni bowls (who doesn’t love a tiny pepperoni curled up into a crisp bowl?) Like most of the Williamsburg pizzas, it also comes topped with high-quality Grana Padano cheese and a bunch of thinly cut, fresh basil, a touch I appreciate.

The Paesano in Omaha has one difference from the version in New York, and that’s the sausage, which in Nebraska, comes from a farm in Iowa, McCann said. So far, folks who have tried both prefer the Omaha version, he said, with its nicely spiced, loosely formed Italian sausage balls along with red peppers, cremini mushrooms, Grana Padano, fresh Mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil.

That load of toppings, a significant one, is probably why one night we noticed the center slice of the pie could get slightly doughy under all that weight. But for the most part, the crust seems to handle the toppings well.

The combination of Grana Padano and fresh Mozzarella shines on the simply topped Sophia Loren, where it’s joined by fresh basil; garlic; and marinated, sliced fresh tomato. Brooklyn-style crust performs better with fewer toppings, and the Sophia has the most toppings of any on the list. I liked the airy bubbles under a browned finish on the pizza’s edge.

There’s a distinct creaminess and richness that comes from the Sophia’s combination of cheeses, one McCann said comes from running the restaurants in New York, where most walk-in customers order a “regular slice,” which comes topped with just cheese and tomato sauce and, on the Omaha menu, is called the Brooklyn.

“Here, the cheese pizza is what you get for kids,” Hodges said. “But when it’s done right, and has that quality, you get why people say if you can’t do the cheese pizza right, you can’t do anything else right, either.”

The menu has several appetizers, including some super buttery garlic knots that come four to an order with marinara for dipping, and an order of meatballs, which can include four or eight, topped with red sauce and a healthy sprinkle of melted cheese.

The only stumble we ran into was in the form of a kale salad, which had pieces of the green so large that it was hard to eat. The large leaves, paired with juicy marinated artichokes, led to a difficult salad to consume, and it needed more dressing and a sharp knife to make a go of it. McCann said later that the owners appreciate the constructive criticism, and he agreed that an uncut kale salad could be hard to eat.

Inside, Williamsburg is doing a brisk takeout business. The first night, we ordered our pizza to eat in the dining room, which is small, with just four booths, and mostly full of people waiting for takeout. Another day, a Saturday, when I ordered my pizza to go around 5 p.m., the employee told me I was looking at an hour-and-20-minute wait before it was ready — good to know if you’re ordering on a busy weekend night.

Also good to know: The Omaha store doesn’t have online ordering yet, so you should plan to make a phone call. Also, there’s no delivery, for now.

When I did arrive on that Saturday, I only waited about five additional minutes to get my full order. Hughes said the team is aiming for diners to get their food promptly at the time it’s promised.

McCann said the team worked hard to keep the recipe in Omaha the same as the one in New York while also making sure it had the capacity to travel, since most of the business is takeout.

“We want to create the same pizza using the same ingredients and the same level of artisanal curation at the nicest of sit-down restaurants, but in a takeout and delivery format,” he said.

Omaha has embraced Williamsburg enough that its owners said they’re already looking to open a second location, in either central or northwest Omaha.

Even in a city like ours, with a packed pizza lineup and a vast array of styles of pie, there’s apparently always room for one more. When it’s made with quality ingredients and with its own signature flare, it becomes something worth waiting for.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Turner Construction a $389 million contract to construct two buildings at Offutt Air Force Base. The project is part of an effort to elevate the base’s facilities above the 100-year flood plain. Offutt suffered major damage during the 2019 Missouri River flood.

The facilities include a 3-story, 420,000 sq. ft. non-kinetic operations center that will house intelligence, training, maintenance and reconnaissance squadrons, as well as a 5,000 sq. ft. defense courier station that will serve as a shipping and receiving facility. The facilities are slated to open in December 2027.

The Omaha City Council has approved Forever North Real Estate, LLC’s $72.5 million development project at 24th & Lake Street, according to the Omaha World-Herald. The two-building complex will receive $9.5 million in Tax Increment Financing.

Both buildings will be four stories. The building facing 24th Street will have 16,000 sq. ft. of street-level commercial space with 81,000 sq. ft. of office space on the upper floors. North End Teleservices will occupy the top two floors. The second building will have 99 apartment units. Construction could begin as soon as next spring.

One professional volleyball team is not enough! League One Volleyball announced yesterday that Omaha will be the home to its next franchise. The Los Angeles-based league was founded in 2020 and has professional women’s volleyball teams in Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Houston and Madison, Wis. The Omaha team will start play after the 2024 Olympics in Paris. Earlier this year, the Pro Volleyball Federation announced Omaha would be home to one of their new franchises.

The next phase of redevelopment is coming to the Little Bohemia neighborhood: single-family infill projects. As an example, Benak Builders plans to construct a 3-story, single-family house on the northwest corner of 15th & William Street.

The Iowa Department of Transportation has reopened Interstate 29 just north and south of West Broadway. I-29 had been closed for about a year and a half for the $180 million complete rebuild of the interchange with Interstate 480, which feeds into downtown Omaha.

If you want to be happy, work for someone you admire. So says Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett as quoted in an Inc. article: “It’s crazy to take little in-between jobs just because they look good on your resume. That’s like saving sex for old age. Do what you love and work for whom you admire the most, and you’ve given yourself the best chance in life you can.”

To motivate your team and achieve your vision, break big targets into smaller goals that build up to the overall target, according to HubSpot. It’s less overwhelming and more satisfying when your team consistently hits the smaller targets.

Gyms were once wary of letting members do remote office work from their lobbies and locker rooms. Now, they see opportunity in offering extra desks and power outlets, according to the Wall Street Journal. Some gyms are creating co-working spaces that members can use before or after workouts. Other gyms are charging extra and offering entire floors for clients to stay and work all day.

In a nationwide survey of 1,000 objectively wealthy Americans — defined as making at least $175,000 a year, roughly the amount required to crack the top 10% of US tax filers — a full quarter told Bloomberg they were either “very poor,” “poor” or “getting by but things are tight.”

Here are five signs you should pass on a new job offer, according to Forbes: 1. The job package is not competitive; 2. There are no opportunities to grow; 3. Their values don’t match yours; 4. The employer is giving you the hard sell; 5. The employer is being vague or indecisive.


Be careful if you manage both operations and sales. The tendency is to focus on ops at the expense of sales. Ops are more urgent and tangible. Sales issues are harder to diagnose and take longer to complete.

Approximately 84 percent of B2B buyers kick off their buying process with a referral, according to Spotio.

Everyone knows that exercise helps you be more successful at work. But there’s another aspect of exercise that helps you professionally: time management. Exercise and sales prospecting both require effective time management to achieve desired results, according to a SalesGravy article by Nate Hadd. By incorporating a disciplined fitness routine, you develop valuable time management skills that can be transferred to sales prospecting.

Wall Street: The Week in Review

with George Morgan

Morgan is the founder of Morgan Investor Education of Omaha.

Views and opinions expressed herein are solely those of the author.

Apple and Amazon released their results after the market close. Apple’s earnings were nothing to write home about. They slightly exceeded Wall Street’s bottom-line estimates, but there were some funky things going on in the income statement. On the flipside, Amazon came in with estimates that blew away Wall Street’s expectations.

In the afterhours trading, Mr. Market beat Apple up, but pushed Amazon’s stock price to the moon. Next morning, Jim Cramer interviewed one of the hotshot hedge fund guys and asked him for his thoughts on Apple and Amazon’s results.

He said he was short Apple – meaning he believed the stock would continue to decline – and long Amazon – indicating he thought they would continue to climb.

Cramer’s instant response was somewhat of a Freudian slip – I am not a psychiatrist, but Webster says a Freudian slip reveals what you really think, but are afraid to say out loud:

“Why don’t you just buy QQQ?”

Translation: QQQ is an ETF that mimics the NASDAQ index.

The Nasdaq is weighted by market cap, so the largest stocks drive the index, giving Apple and Amazon big-time influence over its movement. Cramer’s Freudian slip revels that he knows that QQQ would accomplish the same thing the hedge fund guy is doing, but with less hassle and zero cost.

Go to Yahoo Finance and you will discover that there were tens of millions of individual investors who owned tens of billions of dollars’ worth of QQQ before Apple and Amazon announced their results. In other words, a whole bunch of novice, inexperienced, know-nothing investors will benefit from the Apple and Amazon schlimazel just like the smarty-pants hedge fund guy will, but without all the analytical hocus-pocus and expense.

I consulted with the gnomes about their thoughts on Mr. Market’s current mood. They opined that Mr. Market will probably remain in his flummoxed state for a while. Given his current focus on the Fed, interest rates and the CPI, the market will continue to fluctuate on an irregular basis.

In the words of Ben Graham, “When Mr. Market offers you a price you can’t refuse – to either buy or sell – take it.” Cash is not a four-letter word.

P.S. The Chinese government continues to press policies that are suppressing economic growth. Chinese exports to the United States continue to decline. The Wall Street Journal reports that the once-booming Chinese real-estate market is about to turn to poo-poo. Time to review international funds with significant Chinese exposure.
