There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but you can get pretty close with a $1 slice of pizza. For those of us who can’t afford a $650 dinner, the dollar slice is a staple for all situations, from those last days before you get paid to the wee, drunken hours of the weekend.
While their prices may be equal, not all dollar slices are the same. We tasted all of the priceworthy pizzerias in the NYU area, so you know where to spend your bottom dollar when you’re drunk in the city this weekend.
2 Bros – Saint Marks Place between 2nd and 3rd Avenues
Pros: For many, 2 Bros is the definition of the dollar slice. Because they’re nearly constantly serving up pizza, the pies at this East Village staple are served fresh from the oven. The ingredients themselves are nothing special, but the crust is a satisfying mix of crunchy and chewy. Plus, they are a short walk from many NYU dorms, making for a perfect mid-study snack.
