Does a $5 slice from the legendary Brooklyn pizzeria Di Fara taste as good if you don't have to wait in or outside the Midwood shop for 90-plus minutes?

That's our question for anyone skipping the typical line at the 50-year-old institution in favor of its new delivery service.

Customers living in an area spanning from Bay Ridge to Ditmas Park can now order slices and pies via the food delivery service UberEats from noon to 5 p.m.

A Daily Meal staff writer who placed an online order Friday afternoon reported receiving her regular pie in the "mind blowing" time of less than an hour.

Dropped off by an UberEats bicycle messenger, the pie was delivered as separately packaged slices. However plans are underway to transport whole pizza pies via Uber car, according to Di Fara manager Maggie De Marco.

De Marco's father Dominick is the enchanting pizzaiolo who still cuts basil leaves by hand and slings the majority of the pies out of a small oven that accommodates, at most, four pizzas at a time.

But as he cedes more and more control to his sons, and as his empire grows (the De Marcos have opened a sister restaurant and a nearby dessert shop), we have to wonder: just how long will the Di Fara magic continue to draw pilgrims to Midwood from near and wide?
