Thursday evening I stopped by the grand opening of Home Slice, the new pizza jawn in Liberties Walk run by the same women who own A Full Plate Cafe. Hmm...I wonder if the A Full Plate staff will be making crank pizza delivery calls to their friends across the way?
The grand opening featured a live band, a fashion show, a drag show, and, of course, free slices of pizza!
Home Slice offers white and whole wheat pizza crust, and also traditional and vegan cheese. Score for the vegans!I'm most excited about the crazy, creative pizza creations like the Thai pizza I sampled on Thursday with coconut curry sauce, peanuts, broccoli, sweet peppers, and cheese. Yum! You gotta check in daily to see what craziness gets cooked up, since these pies aren't on the regular menu and change daily.
Cheesesteaks will also be on the menu -- regular, vegetarian, and vegan! I heard a mention of vegan Cheez Whiz. Score two for the vegans!I sampled the vegetarian cheesesteak, and it was delish with truly melded flavors throughout the mushroom studded tofu sandwich.
Home Slice is brand spankin' new, and is still tweaking their pizzas and menu to everyone's liking. Be sure to give them feedback so they can craft a most awesome menu. And if you love one of their crazy pizza creations, tell them; it might make it on to the regular menu.I wish Home Slice the best, and if the speed in which the pizza and cheesesteaks disappeared Thursday night is any indicator of the success to come -- six-foot cheesesteak gone in two minutes! -- they will do well.
