Pizza Slice: Cheap New York Pizza without the 13-Hour Flight


Finally, New York-style pizza by the slice is available in Tokyo. Nestled in a backstreet in Sarugaku-cho, Pizza Slice stylishly serves up authentic NYC pizza.

Everything about the food smacks of authenticity. The pizza slices are perfect – they’re foldable, thin and crisp, have exactly the correct amount of cheese and are even served on paper plates. The attention to detail here is incredible, including the freshness guarantee and the imposing pizza oven.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, with its long wooden tables, high ceiling, great music and well-stocked bar. A huge cheese slice costs only 380 yen. For 500 yen, you can buy a pepperoni slice, an Italian sausage slice or an anchovy and olive slice. 650 yen will get you a homemade meatball slice or (and the rarity of this in Tokyo makes it worth the cost) a white pizza slice. At lunchtime, you can get a cheese slice, any other slice and soft drink for 1000 yen.


Pizza Slice is a fantastic addition to Tokyo’s pizza options: you can eat in a stylish setting, without setting yourself back. With one bite of a slice you are transported to Brooklyn.

    Sorry, but I grew up in New York City eating pizza, and this isn’t it. It looks like it, but it doesn’t taste like it.

    There IS a very good NY pizza joint in Tokyo, and it’s been around for years – it’s called Rocco’s, located in Oji. Go there if you want to learn what NY pizza tastes like.

    • That’s the truth. Rocco’s should see the spotlight instead of this place.

      When I saw the pictures from Pizza Slice I was really looking forward to trying it, but after one bite I was thoroughly disappointed. I’ve had more flavor in frozen supermarket “pizza” in the U.S. than what I found in what Pizza Slice serves up. Will definitely check out Rocco’s.

    So confused. Rocco’s, Pizza Slice, Rocco’s, Pizza Slice. Which is closest to real? Can I get a straight answer by lunch?
