All slices of pizza are special, but some are more special than others. This episode of The Pizza Show is dedicated to three of the most special slices around: the Grandma, the Jersey Bar Pie, and the Cold Cheese slice.

First, we have the Grandma—or nonna—pizza, as it is affectionately know throughout many pizzerias. This is a thinner, crispier version of what most people know as a Sicilian or square slice. Our second pizza isn't necessarily a slice, but is definitely something special: the Jersey Bar Pie. As you guessed by the name, it's a pizza served in bars across the great state of New Jersey, known for being paper-thin with no discernible crust. And last but not least, we have the slice made for drunk college kids who can't eat their pizza fast enough: the Cold Cheese slice. Invented in Oneonta, NY, this slice not only has a special flavor profile, but is engineered to save the roof of one's mouth.
