In the boroughs they do. Out here in suburbia the chains are doing better (although some local pizzerias with good customer bases are outdoing the chains).

The price of a slice has gone up pretty drastically... its averaging $2.25 now.

The owner of the local shop where I usually go came over from Italy in 1985. A plain large pizza costs about $10.00 while slices are about $1.75, which is the going rate around here. He tod me that he's struggling not to raise prices in light of the escalating cost of flour.

Even SC's favorite pizza place, L&B Spumoni Gardens, has had to make an increase in the price of a slice by 25 cents to $2.25 because the price of ingredients has skyrocketed.

The cost of mozzarella and tomatoes, has shot up. Mozzarella has soared in price as much as 50%!!! And let's not forget that higher fuel prices also increase the cost of delivered goods -- getting something from point A to point B costs a lot more now.


All this pizza talk has put me in the mood for a pizza.

Yea, pizza places here put newspaper articles up on the wall to justify the price increase, but I know its legit... I used to say that if all my expenses were food, I would be in good shape because I know how to cook and eat a lot of pasta, but the price of oil is making me reconsider that statement... tractors eat up gas to harvest the wheat/flour, and it costs lots of money to transport that product to the supermarkets, and for the supermarkets to keep those products refrigerated, even the cost of keeping the lights on for the same amount of time each day has significantly increased... Americans on both sides are getting screwed all the way around.

The place where my daughter works can order dozens of pies per weekend, so they will switch around to find a decent and cheap place. They just started using a new place a few weeks ago, and she brought home a whole pie that the people hadn't touched and didn't want. The pizza was great, so we ordered from there.

They had a great deal - One large pie, an order of chicken wings, a large salad and a 2 liter soda for $20. The food was really good and the price was unbeatable.

The place is called Nicky and Johnny's and I irritate the hell out of my daughter by constantly referring to it as Frankie and Johnny's.

But Kly, it's pronounced, tin and tick. Also in NE-PA they don't get a slice of pizza, it's a "cut". Old Forge pizza, huh? I still like Sabatini's better (Exeter, PA)

Atlantic City has an old Spaghetti/Pizza joint called Tony's Baltimore Grill. Great Pizza, and JoJo's makes an "Old Style Sicilian'; rectangle cuts, thin crunchy crust with sausage, red onions ...yum!

Always a cut and never a slice. And you don't order a pizza;it's a tray of pizza.

I love Sabatini's too, but haven't had it in a long time. I love the pizza at Cebula's Bar on 315 where Dupont meets Pittston Township. It's only priced by the cut and not the tray.

[quote=Sicilian Babe]Martio's, Nanuet, NY. He makes small brick oven pies, he makes a great regular pie, and his Sicilian is light and crispy. His pizza is all thin crust and his sauce is delicious. He also makes the best shrimp parm and manicotti I've ever had outside my mom's kitchen. They also serve home-made gelato and great Italian ices.

My brother lives about a block away from DiFara's on Avenue J in Brooklyn. It's been getting a lot of coverage about being the "best pizza" in Brooklyn. Now, says my brother, he's charging $5 a slice. Typical of New Yorkers, they think anything priced that high must be worth it, so the line is three blocks long and the wait for one of those $5 slices is 90 minutes. The owner even is bragging about it:

Sorry, I love pizza, but $5.00 is a little steep for me. They'd better have Jon Bon Jovi serving it to me in the nude.

Yes TB, it's $5.00 a slice. My uncle came over last night and told us that he stopped there on friday and his eyes almost popped out of his head when he saw the price for a slice. Personally, I could care less how good the pizza is,( and we do know what a great pizza they make there), I would never pay that much for a slice of pizza!

Meanwhile one of our local pizzerias here took the exact opposite approach. They decided to charge a $1.00 per slice and now have become known as the "Home of the Dollar Slice!"

The owner (who's father happens to be a friend of mine) told me that the other day he sold 750 INDIVIDUAL SLICES of pizza! He told to me that while he's not making a killing on a slice, he's not losing money either. It keeps people coming in and for the most part the "add ons" that they order make up for his making less money on the slice itself. He feels that in these tough time his lowering the price of his pizza allows those living in the community to be able to once again afford a night out with their families.

750 Slices in ONE day! And that does NOT include the pies that he sold as a whole.

DC, the truth is, there are so many good pizza places in Brooklyn that there's no reason for this place to be doing business with those prices.

You underestimate the power of the mind of jerks.... they figure if the price is that high the product MUST be great.

When I was an adolescent, neighborhood pizzerias charged 15 cents for a slice. The pizzerias that stayed open in the winter on the boardwalks of Rockaway Beach and Coney Island cut the price to 10 cents.

I live just a few blocks from DiFara's. I heard coverage of this ridiculous "$5.00 a slice" crapola on local radio a few days back. The owner claims the pizza is worth it because - besides the high quality of the pizza itself - all the ingredients are imported. Ergo, it costs more to make.

BFD. uhwhat

Like Turnbull, I remember when a slice was fifteen cents. To pay five dollars for what is essentially dough, tomato sauce and cheese is the height of lunacy. Especially when, with our country's economy the way it is, some local shops are offering reduced-price combination "specials" (pizza, soda, etc.) to attract customers.

$5.00 a slice? They can keep it. panic

Guess you can fool some of the people all of the time.

Too right, SV. A place near my office is now running a lunch special - two slices and a soda for $4.50, and it's pretty darned good, too.

Ridiculous.

Asshole celebrities and poseurs decide they have to have it and suddenly it's the best pizza outside of Rome.

It's not.

I used to work on Flatbush, just off King's Highway, and it's not even that good. Yes, it's better than average, but so are half the pies in Brookyn (or the Bronx, for that matter) for half the price.

There are literally half-a-dozen pizzerias within walking distance of my house and ALL of them are great. At my favorite place I get a large pie, a dinner salad, a quart of Italian Ice and a 2 liter bottle of soda for $20. Where you gonna find that?

Obviously not at DiFara's.
