Here are the top 5 picks for places to go when you need your fix. While they’re not all NY-style pies, we dare you to try just one slice at a few of these spots.

1 Pizzeria Ortica

Chef David Myers's spot near South Coast Plaza draws a theatre crowd, the shopping crowd and most definitely the foodies that flock to this spot for wood fired pizzas. And while it's technically not by-the-slice, it's a great choice when you've got a group to split up several pies -- you can never choose just one.

650 Anton Blvd.

Costa Mesa, CA


2 Pizza Bakery

By-the-slice but not by-the-book, the Pizza Bakery is a family favorite for huge slices and all-you-can-grab garlic knots that most neighborhood parents have been chowing on since childhood (or it might just seem that way). Fully customizable slices and fresh ingredients make this favorite spot worth revisiting.

1741 Westcliff Dr.

Newport Beach, CA 92660


3 NY Upper Crust

True NY-style pizza is served up at this South County spot, but it's not all they have. In addition to traditional East Coast style pizza, they've got stuffed crust, Sicilian style and thin crust, too.

28051-B Greenfield Dr.

Laguna Niguel, CA 92677


4 Slice of New York

Whether you go your own way or choose one of the restaurants pre-selected combo of toppings, you're sure to get a great slice here. A local fave and a hot spot with after-beach babes, there's always a line (and for good reason) and a never-ending combination of pizza possibilities.

34667 Green Lantern St.

Dana Point, CA 92629


5 Pizza e Vino

This lakeside spot is a favorite among the families of Rancho Santa Margarita. Specializing in Neapolitan style pizza, they've got everything from classics to white pizzas. Share a pie with your loved ones, your friends or make some new ones -- one slice is never enough.

31441 Santa Margarita Pkwy., Suite M

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688
