HomeSlyce Columbia

When eating dinner out, my husband are finding ourselves going to the same places. Since one of the reasons why we love living in Howard County is for the diverse dining options, we are trying to eat at restaurants that we haven't been to before or haven't been to in a long time. Sunday night we revisited Noodles Corner and last night for dinner we went to the newly opened HomeSlyce in Columbia.

Columbia is HomeSlyce's 4th location. They are also located in Canton, Federal Hill, and Mt. Vernon. Walking in it felt weird because the layout is exactly the same as Azul 17. The hostess told us that they opened a little over a week ago. Besides another couple, we were the only other people dining in. While we were there we did hear a few calls for carry out come in.

Their signature is known as the "Slyce- a boat shaped pizza" which is meant for one. We decided on the 10" HomeSlyce Classic (HomeSlyce sauce goat and mozzarella cheese, walnuts, eggplant, spinach, caramelized onions, roasted peppers) and added soujuk (beef pepperoni). You can also create your own pizza or calzone.

The HomeSlyce sauce is really interesting. Per the menu it is made with spicy herbs, walnuts & oil. A little research on the place and apparently the owner of Cazbar, a Turkish restaurant in Baltimore also owns HomeSlyce. That explains the Mediterranean appetizers and use of nuts, spices, and proteins such as soujuk and lamb. I love that the Turkish influence added something different that you won't find at other pizza places.

The other couple in the restaurant ordered a pizza with vegan cheese and we overheard them tell their waiter that it was one of the best pizzas they've had in the area.
Happy hour was still going on so my husband got $1 off a draft beer and $1.95 off of our appetizer. Everything was delicious. To me, the crust tasted like a mash up of Mellow Mushroom's and Pub Dog's crust. We will definitely be back!

  1. Thanks for posting about this, otherwise I never would've known HomeSlyce opened in the 'burbs!

  2. You're welcome! We overheard some others say that they were happy that they didn't have to drive downtown anymore.
