Sally's and/or Pepe's in New Haven, solo

Next month I will find myself in New Haven late on a Sunday afternoon with some free time. I hope to use this opportunity to make up for a huge gap in my pizza education. Despite having a BA from a certain nearby university, I have eaten at neither Sally's nor Pepe's (hey, it was the 80's, and Elm City was a rougher place back then). My question is: how best to take advantage of one of these legendary establishments when I am dining solo? If I recall correctly, slices are not an option, and I'm not above bringing some leftovers home on the train.

Suggestions from those who have been there before? Or anyone want to meet up there (Sunday June 10 at about 5pm)? Thanks in advance, pizza hive mind.
