One dollar slice pizza is a difficult topic. We all know the feeling of being hungry, late at night, possibly intoxicated, and craving pizza. And in New York, in these moments, that means dollar pizza. The problem with the dollar slice, however, is that you get what you pay for, and it’s important to know that if a slice of pizza that costs you one dollar will not be the best slice of pizza you’ve ever had. That said, it doesn’t really matter. It’s about satisfying a craving cheaply and immediately, and there’s something about a dollar slice that hits the spot every time. If you’re craving a slice, here are some places you might want to go.
2 Bros Pizza has multiple locations around the city, and over the years, it’s become a staple in the world of dollar slice pizza. 2 Bros is packed at all hours of the day (not just after midnight), and their slice is soft and doughy. As with many dollar slice joints, it may not be the best slice of pizza you’ve ever eaten, but it’s cheap, quick, and bizarrely satisfying.
99 Cent Fresh Pizza is another spot with locations all over the city, and luckily, you’ll know from its name that it’s a place for a fast and cheap slice. Its original location was near Port Authority Bus Terminal, and it’s been an icon of dollar slice joints for years. Now that it’s expanded around Midtown and to the East Village, you won’t have to go far for a slice.
Another East Village spot, Mamani is where to go if you’re looking to eat your slice in peace. Much quieter and less crowded than 99 Cent Fresh and 2 Bros, Mamani’s slice is lighter and less dense than its competitors. Plus, if the pizza doesn’t quite hit the spot, they also have falafel pitas and platters to satisfy all your late-night needs.
