Maffei’s Pizza Launches $1 Slice Truck

$1 Pizza Truck

Pizza trucks aren’t new to midtown and neither are dollar slice joints, but $1 pizza from a truck? Now that’s something! Last week while running some errands in the Flatiron area I noticed a pizza truck I’d never seen before parked outside of Maffei’s Pizza (on 22nd and 6th Ave)  with a big old $1 slice sign. I have much love for the $1 slice, so I had to get the scoop. Turns out the truck is affiliated with Maffei’s Pizza and they are going to be selling grandma slices for $1. Those who love grandma pizza know that the grandma don’t come cheap- these slices routinely cost more than a regular cheese slice and can go for upwards of $3 in midtown.

According to the guys on the truck they are planning on making regular midtown appearances, potentially “midtown Mondays” and hope to be fully up and running in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, you can follow them on twitter. By the time I spotted the truck they weren’t serving any more pie, so I’m looking forward to trying out their pizza when they hit midtown proper. They were in the Flatiron yesterday (on B’way and 28th) and the early word on their slices sounds promising. Plus if the grandma slices off the truck are like the ones that Maffei’s sells at their shop, we should be in good shape (provided their fresh out of the oven!) Anyone tried out this new truck yet?


  • how do they drive like that?

  • I wonder if I can talk them into coming downtown to wall st… I miss working next to maffei’s…

  • Maffei’s grandma slices are the best but I’d bet anything these $1 slices are not even regular sized triangle slices. Someone please report back on what you get for a dollar.

  • The slices are square and decent sized. The cheese and crust are good. Great for $1.

    They’re a standard square sicilian sized slice. The same as say, Artichoke.

    The sauce was incredibly flavorful with big pieces of tomato, and the cheese tasted fresh enough, though probably cut/blended a little more than a typical grandma slice. It was a shockingly good slice. I don’t mean it was a good dollar slice, I mean, a really good slice.

    The only downside is they didn’t reheat it, and it wasn’t fresh out of the oven so there was a slight sogginess. That was probably just my timing and for a buck, I’d have a hard time passing them up the next time I see that truck again.

    It’s almost too good to be true.
