Would you ever consider offering pizza by the slice?

Nostrana doesn't seem like a place where this would work, but I'm wondering if any of you would ever consider doing slices. I doubt you'd be willing to have pizzas sitting waiting to be reheated, but I can imagine a Cheese Board type scenario where you make one type of pie a day and just keep them coming out hot, slicing them up during lunch for people. Maybe it's good that you don't, because I might get pizza nearly every day in that situation.

No. For me pizza is a food product that is very time sensitive. I have only eaten at a slice joint a couple of times in my life and every time I waited for a fresh pie to come out before ordering. Pizza is at it's optimum about 2 minutes out of the oven and then with every minute that goes by... Very similar to french fries. I personally never reheat pizza. I would rather eat it cold or at room temp the next day.

The Cheeseboard has a very unique situation and they have made it work well for them. They are one of the few places that I have had a slice, but the things they will put on their pizzas are a turn off for me. I am a plain pie guy, which is how I judge pizzerias.

I agree, I eat it cold if it is leftover. I rarely reheat it.

BTW, Brian, your margherita is even delicious that way...sure it's better when I order it there, but cold leftover Apizza is better than none at all!
