We all know where to track down our favorite slice in in NYC, but what about when you want a pie that’s a little different? Something you may not have had before …or even something downright weird. Here are NYC’s fantastic (read “weird”)Pizzas and where to find them.
Vinnie’s Pizzeria’s Pizza with a Pizza topping
148 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
It doesn’t get weirder than a pizza that is topped with other, smaller, slices of pizza, right? It may sound like nightmare fuel, but we have to admit, we’d try it!
The Mark’s Black Truffle Pie

25 E 77th St, New York, NY 10075, USA
Black truffle is a pretty exquisite ingredient. It makes everything more expensive. This high-class pie pairs black truffle and fontina cheese.
Motorino’s Brussels Sprout Pizza

This pie accomplishes the impossible—making Brussels sprouts taste delicious. They’re paired with smoked pancetta, garlic and pecorino.
Vinnie’s Pizzeria’s Pizza in a pizza box made of pizza
Dost thou have thy munchies? May I humbly suggest A PEPPERONI PIZZA TOPPED WITH TINY SLICES OF PIZZA IN A PIZZA BOX MADE OF PIZZA? Available to order and customize! Just call! #DontBeScared #vinniesbrooklyn #420 #pizzaboxpizza #pizzaonpizza #williamsburg #greenpoint

Yeah, Vinnie’s is on the list twice, but when you can order pizza that comes in a box made of pizza, you can’t blame us, right?
Sofia Pizza Shoppe’s Doughdici
989 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10022, USA
This pie will cost you $38 and is only served on certain nights with limited seating, but it’s “cold fermented” dough is said to take this pizza to another level.
9. Prince St Pizza’s Boozy Broome

27 Prince St, New York NY, 10012
This pie uses vodka sauce instead of marinara. It’s a simple twist, but it’s brilliant.

261 Moore St, Brooklyn, NY 11206, USA
You just have to try a pizza with a name like this. It’s topped with gorgonzola, pork sausage, onion, caper and jalapeño.
Pizzetteria Brunetti’s Spezie Pizza
A post shared by Brunetti Pizza (@brunettipizza) on
626 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014
Somebody with very eclectic tastes invented this pizza—sautéed broccoli rabe, spicy Italian sausage, burrata cheese, hot peppers and Calabrian pepper puree.
Franny’s Clam Pizza
A post shared by Franny’s Brooklyn (@frannysbk) on
348 Flatbush Avenue – Brooklyn NY 11238
It’s New York and New England all in one—a pie with sweet, buttery clams, chilies, and parsley.
Capizzi’s Asparagus Special
547 9th Ave – New York, NY 10018
Asparagus is a superfood, but you’ve probably never thought to put it on pizza. This pie has roasted asparagus, tomatoes, truffle oil, and roasted pine nuts.
Paulie Gee’s Monte Cristo
A post shared by EAT COLUMBUS?? (@columbus_foodie) on
60 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222, USA
Maple syrup and pizza is a bizarre combination. But Paulie Gee’s makes the sweet and savory work, combining Gouda, Canadian bacon, and a syrup drizzle atop this weird but tasty pie.
