Artichoke Basille's Grandma Slice, On A Good Day
On a good day, they're sublime. On a bad day, they can border on too greasy and crisp without enough chew, but are still worth a bite. Ask for a corner slice to get an extra helping of the crisp, nearly blackened shreds of cheese that come in contact with the edges of the pan.

Best Pizza's Pickled Vegetable Pie
It might be one of the best regular slices in the city, but it's the pickled vegetable slice that haunts our dreams. Onions, fennel, broccoli, sprouts, cauliflower—they all get the brine treatment before being generously deposited on top of the excellent pies. It's unusual, and unusually good.
