just a little basic pizza

Deep dish lovers step aside, step up thin crust devourers.  Basic is the East Village no-brainer when you just want food, drink, and a good time.  At least it is when you work across the street from it.  The menu isn't overly complicated unless you make it that way.  There is one salad.  There's one red pie, one white pie, and the option for cheese.  Nothing too exciting right?  This short list is then followed by twenty-four topping selections, which you...
