Eating on the Cheap: 10+ Pizza slice & drink combos for $10 or less

"Pizza Time." — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Sometimes you’re not hungry enough to eat an entire pizza and, to be honest, nuking it in your microwave turns it into an edible frisbee. A lot of us have been there, done that.

Luckily, there are plenty of places in Tucson that offer pizza by the slice. To make it even better, they offer a combo deal of some sort that’s less than $10. Here’s a roundup of a few spots in town that serve such a deal, and some of these aren’t a combo at all — they’re simply a slice of pizza and a cheaply-priced drink.

Arizona Pizza Company

4955 N. Sabino Canyon Rd.

You can get a large slice of cheese pizza and a fountain drink for $8 (additional toppings are $1 each).  This deal is valid for takeout and dine-in. This same exact deal can be found at Upper Crust Pizza at 1909 E. Grant Rd.
