Where to Eat Pizza by the Slice in D.C.

Why go for a whole pie when a slice is nice?

Is there anything more versatile than pizza by the slice?

It's a meal in a pinch, a snack to hold a diner over before dinner or a late night hunger fix. But when it comes to popular D.C. pizza, the Neapolitan and wood-fired varieties seem to reign supreme, though lately fast-casual pizza places are making their mark as well.

Sure, there's always Jumbo slice, but a decent slice of pizza, reheated and served on a paper plate can sometimes be one of the hardest things to find, especially compared to cities like New York with more of a pizza by-the-slice culture.

But rejoice: here are places to find it locally. Just remember the golden rule: When you eat it, fold the slice in-half or risk pizza grease stains forever.

Talk to almost any Georgetown grad, and they'll curse the day Philadelphia Pizza died. Students lathered ranch dressing on mediocre pizza. The ranch dressing can still be satisfied at Pizza Movers & Calzones. Just ask for a few packets of ranch sauce, apply directly to the slice and instant Philly Pizza (multiple locations).
