In New York City, you can find good pizza just about anywhere. Cheap pizza, on the other hand, has always been the right (and in some cases, the very wrong) of Manhattanites alone. That’s why, with budgeting Brooklynites in mind, we’ve rounded up the best dollar slices in Brooklyn—so you can fuhgeddaboutManhattan.
The ubiquitous 2 Bros Pizza is widely regarded as the best dollar slice spot in all of New York City. Thanks to the chain’s downtown Brooklyn outpost, you no longer need to brave Manhattan madness to get your hands on half-priced pizza. Here, efficient and friendly service and quality slices transform a $1 meal into a five-star experience.
Not to be confused with Manhattan’s 99¢ Fresh Pizza chain, 99 Cent Fresh Hot Pizza is an independent eatery in Brooklyn’s bustling downtown. Since 2012, the shop has satisfied diners with its fresh, flavorful dough and its generous allotment of cheese. You’ll have to visit soon to snag your dollar slice, however—prices are slated to soar to a whopping $1.50 per piece.
Brooklyn chain Jr. Bella’s is the lazy local’s pick for Italian-American eats made easy. When you’re too hungry to hunt down the borough’s old-school Italian, Jr. Bella’s is sure to satisfy with its six-slice $5 pies, translating to less than $1 pieces. Matching quality for quantity, Bella’s pies come fresh and feature the chain’s signature sweet tomato sauce.
Hear us out: the dollar slice at this international chain may be the most hearty and filling you’ll find in New York City. That’s because Papa John’s pizza isn’t New York-style pizza, nor is it trying to be. However, it is a solid slice slathered generously with sauce and cheese, and as the dollar slice spot with the most locations in Brooklyn, Papa John’s earns points for convenience, which, as any local knows, is king in New York City.
Only in Williamsburg can you order your drink with a personal pizza chaser—or, more specifically, only at Alligator Lounge, where every drink purchase earns you a free oven-baked pizza prepared on-site. With bar deals such as the popular $6 shot and beer combo, your free pie will average out to $1.50 per slice. However, once the buzz from your drinks kicks in, we doubt you’ll be doing the math.
