Should Pizzeria Bianco serve pizza by the slice?

Would this be a good thing?

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to pickup a slice of Sonny Boy and hang out at Bar Bianco for the evening? Or a slice just before heading to Chase Field?

Anyone think this would be a bad thing?

  1. A slice of PB pizza would have to be half the pizza; those aren't exactly large pies Chris is churning out. And if he added takeout, can you imagine how much longer the wait would be for dine-in?

      I dunno, I think you could probably get 4 slices (or pieces) from a single pie.

      That said, I agree that having by-the-slice (or takeout) would probably put too much a crimp on the dine-in business.

    2. The type of pizza sold at PB and similar pies are a competely different food from the pies sold by the slice. They shouldn't both be called pizza, but they are. I don't think Bianco's pizza would be that good by the slice -- just as it is not nearly so good when left over and re-heated. Slice-type pizza often improves after freezing and re-heating in the oven.

        I have disagree about PB leftovers.

        I routinely over-order just to have leftovers to take home, and all of them taste great reheated (different than at the restaurant, but delicious nonetheless)

          I'm not saying Bianco's leftover pie is no good, it's very good, just not as good as it is fresh from the source. I've only ever had his leftover pie once -- I always finish every last bite while there, no matter how much food was ordered. That one time I think I was trying to be polite -- 2nd or 3rd date kind of thing ...

            LOL. I try to be polite only on the 1st date ...

              Second or third dates? Where are you finding such dream dates? I can't even get my boyfriend to wait with me, let alone someone I don't know! Then again, I suppose that's the problem--he doesn't have to cater to my every whim anymore, he's already got me. :)
