Metrô bus Baixo Leblon
Vezpa's large premises on Leblon's very own Fifth Avenue, Ataulfo da Paiva, are an accountant's nightmare, so its a good job that they seem to sell slices of thick-crust heaven by the barrow load. The counter is just the right height for a browse, the golden offerings ranging from classics like pepperoni (R$4.90) and mushroom (R$5.70) to the much lighter and fluffier basil-strewn square (R$5.20), whisked away to the huge oven for two minutes to get them ready for consumption. The Brazilian favourite topping, nutella (R$5.50), is of course present as a dessert, but healthier options such as the integral with cottage cheese do exist. There are pots of goodies like dried chilli flakes and cracked pepper to help yourself to, and whole pizzas are also available for delivery. Undoubtedly one of the best slices in town, and perfect for a post-Jobi snack attack.
