Shanghai's best pizza by the slice

Slice slice baby

So much pizza, so little time. With three newly opened spots focusing on pizzas served by the slice, we're dishing out the ones you need to try right now.

White pizza, 25RMB per slice at Homeslice Pizza


You’ll be hard-pressed to pick a favourite slice from New York-style pizzeria Homeslice, because you’ll love everything it’s got, but we have a particular affinity for the white pizza.


The 48-hour cold-fermented dough, which makes for a flavourful, airy crust with lots of bubbles, is slathered with rich Parmesan cream and topped with a bit of garlic, heaps of mozzarella and dollops of fresh ricotta. So effin’ good.

Also try Roasted artichoke and house-made fennel sausage pizza with Parmesan cream and lemon zest.

Classic Joe’s pepperoni pizza, 27RMB per slice at Joe’s Pizza

Joe's Pepperoni Pizza Slice 2

Straight from Greenwich Village comes Joe’s Pizza, the place to head for time-honoured NYC-style slices on the fly. Over here, go old school with one of the giant slices of classic pepperoni pizza.


It’s laden with Joe’s secret recipe sauce (the same one used at the NY locales), Wisconsin mozzarella and loads of zesty ‘roni. Don’t forget a few dashes of hot sauce.

Also try Classic Joe’s cheese pizza… after all, it’s a New York staple.

Gucci pizza, 22/39RMB per small or large square slice at Zozzo Pizza

Zozzo Gucci Slice 2

At Zozzo, you’ll find bona fide pizza al taglio – aka Roman street-style pizza – where slices come in squares. Get stuck into the designer ‘Gucci’ pizza: luscious pumpkin cream made with Philadelphia cream cheese, scamorza and mozzarella cheeses and paper-thin pieces of salty pancetta.


You can take it home, but owner Giampaolo de Santis will persuade you to eat your slice there while it’s hot and fresh.

Also try Off-menu special slices (which change daily), like burrata cheese with Parma ham.
