Legit Slices at this hole-in-the-wall one man operation. Slices are available as a first-come-first-served basis and usually only last til early/mid afternoon. Traditional thin crust NYC-style in plain cheese or pepperoni. Also ‘square’ slices (grandma/Sicilian style) are available in pepperoni. He used to offer them is cheese too but they didn’t sell. He WILL sell you a plain cheese grandma pie (4 slices total) if you call at least a day in advance (he said the dough needs 18 hours to properly proof).
Whole pies in cheese, pep, or half and half are available to order for pickup but he WILL close orders for the day once he reaches capacity.
Plain cheese slice and pep grandma slice. Check out the AMOUNT of pepperonis. Maximum cuppage. Nice n spicy.
Undercarriage shots. Thin slice was crisp on the bottom but still very tender (very foldable). The edge would have made a fantastic breadstick all on its own. The grandma slice had a fabulous, audible crunch on its bottom with a light, airy focaccia texture throughout.
All told, one of the best by-the-slice spots in town. I WILL be getting a grandma cheese pie in the near future.

do you happen to ~know how often/when he close down orders for the day?
are single slices entirely comparable to a fresh pie?
I’ve only had the slices thus far. Have not tried a whole pie. The slices are top notch though.
They don’t do call ahead for slices. He tried to originally, but had too many no shows so he stopped.
As to when he closes orders, there’s no set times. When he reaches capacity, he stops accepting. As an example, the first time I tried to go we showed up at 6pm on a Saturday, not knowing how it worked. He apologized but said he was sold out for the day. He was in the store making pereordered pies for pickup.
Personally, if you want a whole pie, I’d order the day before. If you want a square pie, pep or cheese, make it two days.
Note you’ll have to call to order square pies. They’re not on the online menu.
finally managed to work the logistics properly and try this place out.
really great slices!!! with the caveat that my sample size is only one visit (and consistency is arguably the most important determinant for the caliber of a pizza shop), i would estimate the crust/dough quality to be better than anywhere doing NYC-style pizza in the bay area (and also better than any of the places i’ve tried in LA). perfectly thin edge of crisp throughout, in the realm of any of the good-to-great slice shops in new york, e.g. joe’s. the dough does have a noticeable sourdough tang, but this is also arguably a feature.
if wanting a full pie, order ahead - i thought i was going to waltz in and wait for a fresh pie to bake, turned out to be an hour wait until the next slot…
I’ve been a couple of times. He’s got his process down. Same banger slices each time.
In fact, I think I might order myself a square slice pie for the weekend.
@lectroid thank you a million times over for highlighting this place!! on revisit, and 8 additional slices added to the tally, the quality of nyc slice here remains exceptional and a good deal above anything in the bay area…
in a month or so, they will finally have indoor seating! also at some point, soft-serve!
although i am still a plain-cheese purist, the heatwave is now also a must-order when available - jalapeno, coppa, hot honey. it looks prettier than this, and also deserved a better picture-taking effort but…
I haven’t hit them up in a little while. But seating?!
AND soft serve??
Man, if they start offering slices for dinner I’m gonna have a new pre-movie dinner ritual.
Thanks for the heads up!!
they usually have slices available into the evening now! - if they don’t they reliably update on their instagram (https://www.instagram.com/pizzasupremebeing/)
