Pizza shop in Brooklyn reopens 2 days after being shut down

Posted: Updated:

The iconic Midwood pizza shop Di Fara Pizza has reopened two days after being shut down.

The pizzeria was shut down Tuesday for unpaid back taxes, but now the owners are getting the business back up and running.

The owners have been on a payment plan with the state for several years, but they say that some payments were accidentally missed over time.

When the shop closed, it gained a lot of attention from the community - with many people calling the business a staple in the community.
