Slice on UES (short review)

Yeah, the idea is good. Healthy pizza for those who don't like ours with loads of cheese. In fact, we don't like cheese, although there were a couple of cheesy options on the menu. As well as one with chicken and one with tofu. Overall impression - nay...
A small place, they just opened so they haven't gotten their flow going yet. Hence waiting in line behind two people for what seemed like forever to order, while your companion grabs a table and sits there. Only five two person tables total; I guess they would try to make delivery their business?
Food is good. I like pizza and I like healthy. So the super fresh slightly cooked tomato topping on the bruschetta pizza, fantastic. The mushrooms with tomato sauce on the mushroom pizza also great. My friend seemed to like her tofu and jalapeno pizza, as well the pesto mozzarella one (the cheesy option). There's something with soy cheese and eggplant available as well.
The crusts themselves? I like the idea of a whole wheat crust, but they have to work on the crusts. Not charred enough at the bottom. No extra piece at the end, the part you'd hold onto if you were to fold it in half. And isnt folding a slice in half the way to eat a pizza, at least in New York? Well there for some reason they cut them into three triangles for you. That and the naming conventions (beginner, intermediate, advanced, some in between and the create-your-own option, dubbed as genius), I found strange. Overall a decent place, will maybe order from them when I get a pizza craving (which is not very often). On 2nd between 73rd and 74th.
