Joey Pepperoni bringing his $1 pizza to First Avenue

A branch of Joey Pepperoni's Pizza is opening here on First Avenue between 13th Street and 14th Street... (this space was most recently Ikura Sushi...) There are a few Joey Pepperoni locations around the city... Midtown Lunch reviewed the $1 cheese slice at the Tribeca outpost.

The verdict: This was a good piece of pizza, and when you add in the $1 price tag it’s kind of amazing. The crust was really crisp and the cheese plentiful and slightly browned in spots.

And what's the verdict on the Joey Pepperoni mascot?

And the space next to Joey P's is for rent too...

I love that mascot, especially when he sings about his "Chocolate Salty Balls!"

@anonymous 12 PM: as a vegetarian you may want then to forgo the cheese also -- those dairy cows live in hell for about six years, are forcibly impregnated so as to produce milk, see their calves pulled from them a day or so after birth, and ultimately get shipped off to the slaughterhouse. Not the "contented cows" bullshit that many of us grew up believing.

While there are "humane" dairy farms around, some better than others (see for example, for info), you can be sure that what's in your pizza did not come from one of them.
