Sauce introduced a grab-and-go pizza option at its Lower East Side restaurant back in April. The newish concept – dubbed LES Pizzahit the ground running, and now counts a second spinoff in its stable.

Last month, team Sauce expanded with another LES Pizza location at the corner of Bleecker and Broadway in NoHo. Like its cross-town sister, the pizza portal is an extension of the kitchen. In this case, the kitchen of Coco & Cru which backs onto Bleecker.

Menu options include personal pizzas (thin crust is their style), salads, and sandwiches, all of which are sold right out of the doorway.

Sauce owner Adam Elzer purchased the establishment with partner Shane Covey last year. Frank Prisinzano founded the casual Italian restaurant at 78 Rivington Street in October of 2011.
