Home Slice Pizza
Home Slice Pizza recently moved into Midtown as a new outpost from the Austin mothership. The restaurant interior is a successful ode to a 1970s pizza joint or someone’s grandmother’s wood-paneled basement with a scant few booths inside and small patio. The New York-style pizza runs fairly thin with a slightly soft crust and a light dusting of toppings. Signature pies like the eggplant pie or the pepperoni and mushrooms are tried-and-true staples that won’t steer you wrong. And even though this place is named after pizza, what you should really order is the full-size Italian assorted sub sandwich. This beauty’s loaded up with ham, salami, capicola, and a mess of chopped lettuce and tomato on a house-made white bread. It’s beautiful and massive and will make you strike an endless chef’s kiss pose until you take the last bite. Also, we recommend ordering ahead, and, if you get pizza, grabbing a full pie to-go as it is made to order—ordering by the slice is not the move.
