$1 Pizza

by Marisa Olsen


So I've been eyeing Zimari's the new pizza place on 31st between Lex & Park (conveniently close to Brother Jimmy's), who advertise $1 slice, and $2.75 for 2 slices and a soda.

Tonight it was my turn to try this intriguing delight, and I have to say, it wasn't bad.  My total was $1.09 with tax. Once the piping hot plate was in my grubby hands, I immediately added more parm (do you have to even ask?) and red pepper flakes, which were conveniently located right next to the cash register. The slice was big, thick, and gooey with cheese, but not New York style cheese, a little thicker.  The red sauce was sweet, with a hint of spice. The crust crisp, but not burnt.  All together, not bad, but no Artichoke.  A great inexpensive option when you're on the go. But don't count on this place one late night after spending too much time sucking down a fishbowl next door because they close at 9PM on the week night.   And we found this out the hard way.
