20101215-rays-sixth-avenue-11th-street.jpgAm I the only one around these parts who likes a pepperoni-jalapeño slice from time to time? The salty-greasy-spiciness of those little round discs just plays so well with the pickled heat of the peppers. You might be able to find this combo in any number of New York City slice joints, but for some reason the Famous Ray's on Sixth Avenue and 11th Street just seems like the perfect pizzeria in which to indulge this craving. I'm lobbying for this combo to go mainstream — but given the fact that the major chains are pushing 'peños as a topping, maybe it already has.
