Non-chain Pizza Downtown?

We have this awesome thing at work called SUMMER FRIDAYS - it's pretty fantastic. We get every other Friday off - w00t! 

That said - on the work Friday - it's pretty desolate - with five of us in the office - I asked the high ranking honcho if he was buying us pizza (jokingly) and he said "SURE!". DOUBLE W00T! 

Finding places to deliver in downtown is not so simple - I have a favorite place in Covington: NOPE. Coworker mentioned a place in Northside: NOPE. Then I came across Cincy By The Slice. I have driven by their Deer Park location a million times but never had time to go - finally!

The pizza we had to try was the Pickleroni! Seriously - pepperoni pizza with pickles!!!! This was good stuff! The saltiness of the pickles goes great with the pepperoni. We totally were not going to order it - but the paying honcho came back and said he was too curious now - and we had to!

We also got a veggie - it was fine. I have to say - I wasn't a fan of the crust - it was a bit tough and tasteless. The pizza was good though.

There's the honcho - folding and eating. He's a bit shy.

We also ordered a salad to go with the pizzas and that was huge!!! It was also really good with lots of veggies.

Why Should You Go: Well - I didn't love the crust - but that Pickleroni Pizza was damn good and I'd like to try that again! The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful - so I have to give them props for that. And - they deliver downtown!

  1. Gotta say, the crust doesn't look doesn't resemble any of the several pies I've had from the deer park location. Their pizzas look more golden and the crust has a nice tasty chew to it! Also, it might just be the picture, but when I've gotten pickle pizzas before (sans pepperoni) they've had way more fresh cracked pepper on them. It really balances out the acidity of the pickles and gives the pizza a good bite!
