Maybe someone in your office knows more than you about tax exemptions or bird law, but you can always be the go-to person for pizza knowledge. A good way to establish yourself in that position is to bring slices or a pie back from Sofia Pizza Shoppe. If you want to keep it relatively light, get the grandma square, which is mostly just sweet, salty chopped tomatoes on crunchy crust, and for something much less light, get the spinach dip pizza, which is a big slice of thin, doughy crust topped with melted white cheese and big scoops of delicious spinach artichoke dip. The tiny, brick-walled space on First Avenue only has five counter seats, so it’s best for takeout.
