Good Slice - Pig's Pizza

Nab | Apr 28, 2003 01:41 PM

Thanks to one boring lecture, I was able to try this place out for the first time. After a half-hour of daydreaming about pizza, I decided to duck outta class and walk across the street to grab me a slice. I had the "Seasonal", which consists of roasted butternut squash, goat cheese, fried sage leaves and braised leeks. A really good slice, with a thin crust that had a nice crisp (yet not overdone), and the ingredients were fresh, flavorful and appropriate in combination. As somebody had mentioned previously, there are some creative varieties here -- the pork confit one that was being scarfed beside me looked (and smelled) pretty darn good.

And they have a juice bar too.
