About this Business

Outside Rocket Joe’s Pizza, a neon sign flashes and flickers, inviting the pizzaless to come in to enjoy a hot pie and Yankee game on the large flat-screen TV. The cooks pile those pizzas high with a choice of more than 30 toppings, such as bacon, philly steak, plum tomatoes, and blue cheese. For the health conscious, they also offer whole-wheat crusts, as well as wraps and gyros stuffed with veggies. In keeping with its Lower East Side location, Rocket Joe’s cultivates a bohemian ambiance, making it a popular pizza joint among local artists, musicians, and amateur actors working on a production of Rent for the office holiday party.
