I stopped by Rotten City this afternoon for a couple slices of their delicious thin-crust pizza, which is pictured above. When I’m out on the road, I’m a big proponent of the by-the-slice format, since it enables me to eat as much pizza as I want, without having to deal with leftovers, which don’t typically fare well after a day in the car. Even better yet, ordering pizza by the slice feels much more like a snack than a meal, even if I somehow end up eating four or five pieces in one session (over-snacking is also much healthier than over-eating, at least in my mind). At Rotten City, it’s usually pretty easy for me to over-snack, since I find their crispy, cracker-thin crust to be somewhat addictive. In fact, Rotten City might just be my favorite by-the-slice option in the East Bay. I’d really have to think about that one, though — Gioia Pizzeria in Berkeley also ranks highly as my longtime East Bay standby. It’s a tough decision. Way too close to call right now. I just can’t do it.
