Happy National Pepperoni Pizza Day from Studio 512 and local pizza joint, Home Slice Pizza! Home Slice’s Director of Training and Culture, Shane Kullberg-Ronder, and General Manager, Mario De Leon, joined us on Studio 512 to talk about their business, updated hours and menu offerings.

Home Slice opened its doors on South Congress Avenue in 2005 as a mom-and-pop New York-style pizza joint by three friends. Since then, it has only grown –– adding two more Austin locations to its portfolio: More Slice and Home Slice Pizza at North Loop. This fall, they’ll expand beyond Central Texas for the first time with an outpost in Houston’s midtown neighborhood. Despite its growth, Home Slice still considers itself a “neighborhood pizza joint,” which shows through its service and restaurant atmosphere.

In honor of National Pepperoni Pizza Day, Kullberg-Ronder shared that Home Slice’s Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza is one of their best-selling pies. Other favorites include Margherita and an eggplant pie, Kullberg-Ronder’s personal favorite. 

In honor of this special day, Home Slice is giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky winner. To enter, homies must follow @homeslicepizza on Instagram, like their most recent post, and tag a friend in the comments. The giveaway ends this Friday, September 23rd.

All Home Slice locations are now open until midnight every Friday and Saturday, giving local pizza lovers even more time to snag their classic New York-style slices. To learn more about Home Slice Pizza, check out their website.
