Dollar pizza joints have been popping up since the recession first hit New York in 2009, and have become a very popular and seemingly successful business venture since then. By its nature, pizza is a food meant for peasants – bread, cheese, and some sauce. Thanks to evil geniuses like Wolfgang Puck, the traditional pizza has been elevated to different levels throughout the years, and the price has elevated too.
There is an actual correlation between the cost of subway fare and a slice of pizza in NY (seriously, look it up if you don’t believe me), but for cheapo’s like me who want to eat on the run, we don’t have time or money to waste on fancy pies. Enter “Percy’s Pizza”, and their beckoning claim of a slice of Italy for a single buck.
