Happy New Year’s pizza!

Individual pizza, Zelda’s Gourmet Pizza

For at least 10 years running we’ve had a New Year’s Day tradition in my household: Zelda’s Gourmet Pizza after dark for pie and pitchers of cheap beer. We invite friends—no pressure, whoever can make it, great. The bigger the crowd, of course, the more pizza to share. But what if you’ve got your heart set on a New Spinach order and everyone else is talking Spinoccoli? Easy, every Zelda’s deep dish pizza is also available as an individual 6-inch pie ($6.50-$9). There might not be leftovers, but at least you won’t have to share. See you there? 1415 21st Street, www.zeldasgourmetpizza.com.
