I've balked at the price of a slice before, for sure. But I also know that I am just itching to give Dom Demarco a $5 bill for a slice of his pie when I am next in Brooklyn (though the $4 to $5 rise in price caused quite the stir in 2009, with Mayor Bloomberg weighing in— and of course Adam too). Of course, the amount of money I spend annually on gas in search of great pizza makes 5 bucks looks like a steal. We calculate that the average slice in NYC (where slice culture has its deepest roots) is $2.75. Based on that, how much is too much for a large cheese slice?
