Village Square Pizza
Where we've featured it
Village Square Pizza makes one of New York’s top pepperoni square slices. And that’s saying something since there are about as many pepperoni square slices in NYC as there are buildings owned by NYU - a f*cking ton. Their newest location opened recently in the West Village is serving pepperoni squares that have a charred bottom crust, a slightly spicy tomato sauce, and seemingly never-ending curly meat cups.
With its exposed brick and “Get Lost In The Sauce” neon signs, Village Square Pizza is a very chill place to eat a slice of pizza in the West Village (there’s also a second location on Avenue A). The menu, which includes pizza by the slice/square or whole pies, is pretty straightforward, but we’d like to focus on one of our favorite pizza-like things here: the vegan bruschetta. It’s topped with freshly chopped tomatoes and red onions drenched in extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil while sitting on a golden garlic crust. But if you must have pizza, which is also very good, you can select between a few plant-based options: the vegan square is topped with roasted peppers and onions, and the eggplant square features fried eggplant, marinara sauce, hand-crushed tomatoes, chopped garlic, and fresh basil.
