In the USA, rectangular slices of pizza are often called "Sicilian pizza". It is frequent as a school cafeteria lunch dish, as a packaged frozen dish, and as a pizzeria menu option, etc..
There could be paraphrases or synonyms for indicating a slice of pizza. Additionally, I'd presume there to be fluctuations in usage rates for "slice of pizza" at different areas of the world.
חלק would mean part
כמות could mean portion or amount
מנה could mean serving (note transformation of hay into taf, מנת פיצה "a portion/serving of pizza")
Well, מָתֶמָטִיקַאי אוֹכֵל רַק גִּזְרַת פִּ֫יצָה a mathematician only eats a sector of a pizza. גִּזְרָה is also used for a designated area: אֵין בְּעָיוֹת בְּגִזְרַת־הֶחָלָל שֶׁאַ֫נוּ מְסַיּירִים בָּהּ כָּעֵת there is no trouble in the space sector we are patrolling now.
