Gives NYC and Chicago a run for their money. The white pizza with spinach is my personal fave but the calzones and salads are also excellent choices. The Outdoor dining is cute and pet friendly. More Home Slice by the slice is next door if you need some pizza on the go. Park at the church and be ready to wait in line. Don't forget a rice crispie treat for dessert!

Went for the first time even thought I've lived in Austin almost all my life. I can't believe I never actually ate here - I've been missing out big time!
The pizzas are so fresh - perfect amount of melt in your mouth/crisp yet chewy crust in between thin and thick!
Plus, our server was helpful, knowledgable and all around a cool chick!

Seriously. This is the closest to legit New York Pizza you can get down here in Texas!!
If you like thin crispy cust, authentic tomato sauce, and oozing mozzerella cheese then you can't miss out on this fabulous pizza joint!
Ambiance and service are always great. Sometimes theres a wait, but if you're in a hurry head next door to their to-go building and grab a slice or a whole pizza!

My wife and I just had lunch at Home Slice on Congress and it was excellent. We had heard good things about this pizzeria and we were pleasantly surprised to find out they were justified. We ordered the #6 pizza which is on the Tried and True menu; it consisted of sausage, ricotta cheese and roasted red pepper. It was some of the best pizza in town. We also ordered salads, she getting the Pear Gorgonzola (mixed greens w/walnuts and Dijon vinaigrette) and me the Italian Chef (house salad w/antipasto topping). They even came in half sized servings so we were not too filled up. The only down side being that you have to arrive early because it gets packed and park can be atrocious on Congress, but it is well worth it.
Like many pizza places, the atmosphere, serivce and character will bring me back to Home Slice everytime. I'm sure there are some who will say this is the best NY style pizza outside of NY but I'm too picky to go that far. The pizza is good but not out of this world and same for the salads. Overall, it's a decent NY-style stand-in so far west. What really draws the crowds is the cool vibe and cozy atmosphere. I'm not local so I only eat here when I'm passing through on business or pleasure but it's always packed so I usually find a spot for two at the bar which is the best place to sit to see all the action anyway.
