Cheap Eats 2018: Wiseguy Pizza

Photograph by Laura Metzler.

Have friends who won’t shut up about how pizza is so much better in New York City? Get them to pipe down with a trip to these storefronts (and a GW University stall), where one slice can equal dinner and a single pie could serve a party. The places get pretty wild with toppings, and some (e.g., chicken Parm or Korean chicken pizza) are more successful than others (paneer tikka). You’ll make your best case with the basil-strewn Margherita or the puffier, square Grandma pizza—both show off the enviable crust and excellent red sauce. Also good: Supreme pizza; pepperoni pizza; buffalo-chicken pizza; garlic knots with red sauce.
