Sauce Pizzeria is a counter-service spot in the East Village from the same owner as Sauce, the Italian restaurant on the LES. The pizza here has a chewy, thin crust, and you can get slices, full pies, and individual dipping sauces that come on the side. They get creative with some of the toppings - and although it might sound gimmicky, the al pastor pie with pineapple sauce is actually pretty good. If you’re in the East Village and want a quick sit-down meal that’s not too expensive, it’s worth stopping by here.
