Well hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a pizza face review (or anything at all for that matter lol). I recently traveled to Atlanta and found myself at a pizza place trying something interesting on their menu, so I figured why not resurrect pizza face?! So here goes…
Note: There are two Slice locations in Atlanta. This review refers to the Poplar St. location.
I stumbled upon Slice while wandering around after an unexpectedly short audition left me with an hour of time on my parking meter.
Located in the midst of Georgia State University’s campus, Slice is just a short walk away from Centennial Olympic Park and the SkyView Ferris Wheel. It’s fairly inconspicuous but for the bright orange chairs outside screaming “Hey! Look over here!” Admittedly, without those chairs I would’ve probably kept walking and Slice’s existence would have remained unknown to me. But I was drawn in and ended up perusing the menu that was posted in the window for passersby.
The menu contained the usual suspects…supreme, margherita, etc., but then….LOADED BAKED POTATO? Yes, that’s right. A loaded baked potato pizza. I was skeptical, but intrigued enough to give it a shot.
My slice arrived with a very thin layer of marinara sauce (enough to remind me that this was in fact a pizza, yet not so much as to clash with the fact that this was also a loaded baked potato, to my taste buds at least), potato slices, onions, huge crisp bacon strips and cheddar cheese, along with a side of sour cream.
Well…the sour cream was probably the most exciting thing about this dish. Granted, it wasn’t just “a dollop of Daisy”; it was seasoned with oregano and possibly a squeeze of lime. The pizza itself wasn’t bad, but it was nothing to call home about either.
The good points:
-the size of the slice (good “bang for your buck”)
-crisp buttery crust
-bacon (not fatty/wimpy) I don’t like chewy bacon
Taste: (Eh, it’s okay)
Recommendation: (Worth a try)
