Good "NY" Style pizza

I am from New York and have a confession, I like Chicago style pizza better. But, this is quite good thin crust pizza. I had the "escape from New York" and would highly recommend it. Reasonable prices and generous portions.

Oh my yum! The best hand tossed in Bay View. Great topping choices and some unique menu items. The current goat cheese asparagus appetizer is the bomb!

I love their pizza. Great options and you can see them making everything in back. But if you call in an order for pick-up, never take their word for when it will be done. It always takes longer than they say. No consistency on that front, but it's worth the wait if you don't have to be somewhere.

I'm from Philly and should know a thing or two about good "East Coast pie". I absolutely abhor Chicago style "deep-dish" crap. So, for those seeking the "other" pizza style then this one is tops. It is the only place I go to for pizza.

Me, pizza, each week? No, not usually. But since stumbling upon Classic Slice in Milwaukee's Bayview neighborhood, I am hooked! The appetizers are tempting, the calzones look great, there are even cannolis, but it's simply a giant slice of cheese pizza with arugula that has captured my full attention. Piping hot from the oven, it is topped with fresh arugula... More

The vegan pesto pie is to die for along with the vegan soy sticks. You will not be disappointed if you come here! They also have vegan cupcakes. Two thumbs up classic slice! Love that they have games to play while you wait for your food. You can get your food to go, too!

Just off Kinnickinnic, this hidden hipster gem has awesome do it yourself pizza slices served New York style. All natural and lots of options for vegetarians.

We crave the slices at Classic Slice and will make the 45-minute to get pizza from Classic Slice rather than our local pizza place. Generally, I order the Ann Curry which is a vegan pie--there are 6 vegan slices available!

It was so refreshing to find a pizza shop in Milwaukee that catered to vegans. We ordered a pizza and it was delicious. The atmosphere was also nice. We will definitely return here on our next trip to Milwaukee.

Classic slice is an awesome concept as they allow you to have custom GIANT pizza slices to call your very own. The flavors are fresh and unique and will be back for the delicious taste. They have a great beer selection and the atmosphere is very trendy and urban. That being said, the service is sometimes super friendly and other... More
