As ingredients become more expensive, the price of a slice of pizza has been becoming more expensive too. When I moved to the city in 2002, it was rare to find a slice for more than $2.00. But now a $2.00 slice is considered a steal. An article that ran in the New York Times last year (Will Subway Fares Rise? Check at Your Pizza Place) chronicled the rise in pizza slices alongside the rise in subway fares.
But wait... A weird thing has been happening... mostly downtown. A number of pizza places have reduced the cost of their slices to $1.00. These places don't serve up the best pizza in town, but it sure is a good bargain.
