Everyone loves pizza! And suddenly, the Twin Cities are full of great pizza and pizza slices. From the Neapolitan to the New York Slice to the Chicago Deep Dish and more, the Cities has some great pies. But what about getting just a single slice? Dara scoured the pizza joints for the quintessential East Coast “slice” and here’s her Top 5!
Victoriano’s NY Style Pizza & Pasta in Stillwater
402 Main Street North
Stillwater, MN 55082
A very city-feeling place in downtown Stillwater that does a great slice. Crispy underneath, a little sweet, a little spicy and a lot of delicious! Think about a slice next time you’re antiquing your way through Stillwater!
Fat Lorenzo’s in Minneapolis
5600 Cedar Ave S
Minneapolis, MN 55417
A tiny, old-school New York kind of place near Lake Nokomis, Fat Lorenzo’s does a few things well. Homemade Gelato and sub sandwiches are among their specialties. But it’s the pizza slice that keeps them coming back to Fat Lorenzo’s after a stroll around the lake!
Bryn Mawr Pizza & Deli in Minneapolis
404 Cedar Lake Road South
Minneapolis, MN 55405
Bryn Mawr Pizza and Deli (also known as Fast Freddies) is a family owned pizzeria and sandwich shop located in the heart of Downtown Bryn Mawr in Minneapolis. Both the dough and the sauce (among quite a few other things) are made from their own recipes in the restaurant. Bryn Mawr Pizza makes a delicious slice for those on the west side of town.
Broders Cucina Italiana in Minneapolis
2308 West 50th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55410
Most people think of the amazing pasta bar when it comes to Broders. But across 50th Street is the Cucina Italiana and with that, a fabulous slice of East Coast Pizza. It’s probably the thinnest variety on the list but when it comes to homemade ingredients done the right way, Broders is at the top of many lists including this one.
Hello Pizza in Edina
3904 Sunnyside Road
Edina, MN 55424
It’s the new kid on the Pizza block. Ann Kim, who started the cult favorite Pizzeria Lola in Edina a couple of years ago, decided to launch a new place based off of the “grab and go” pizza slices you’d find in any New York neighborhood. It’s brand new, it’s thin and doughy, the sauce sweet and spicy, the toppings homemade (including the sausage!) and the results are pitch-perfect. As Dara says, it’s the most delicious “cheap” dinner you’ll find in town.
