Di Fara Pizza Closed Over Unpaid Taxes


Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn has been shut down by the state over unpaid taxes.

Officials stormed the pizzeria around lunch time, saying Di Fara’s owes more than $167,000 dating back to 2014. The owner claims they have just one missed payment and believes they’re being targeted because it’s a cash business.

Di Fara is considered on the city’s best pizzerias with lines of people often waiting to get a pie. It opened in 1964 and was closed twice last year by health inspectors because of violations.
