Food Guide: Laguna Beach's 'Slice' of heaven

If you find yourself in Laguna Beach and are looking for a quick bite, look no further. Slice is the place to go for truly delicious pizza.

Made from the freshest ingredients (which you can taste with every bite), Slice allows you to build your own pizza just the way you like it.

From the dough (which is made with flour from one of the oldest mills in Italy) to the sauces (if tomato sauce isn't your thing, try the herbed ricotta or the fresh pesto sauce), the cheeses (there are eight kinds of cheese to choose from, including the vegan Daiya cheese), and a list of topping that is endless... Soppressata, rosemary-infused ham, prosciutto, pepperoni, and all the veggies you can imagine.

Amongst Slice's signature pizzas are the Emerald Bay (with pesto, ovalini mozzarella, feta, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, red onions, sun-dried tomatoes), the Rockpile (with organic tomato sauce, ovalini mozzarella, prosciutto, pineapple, arugula, Parmigiano Reggiano) and the Top of the World (with Frank's Red Hot sauce, shredded whole milk mozzarella, Pt. Reyes blue cheese, Italian chicken, red onions, garlic, avocado, cilantro).

Established in 2018 by Cary Redfearn and his wife Suzanne, Slice which was inspired by their many travels to Italy where the couple fell in love with the true Neapolitan pizza, later acquiring the skills to make the most authentic dough themselves.

It was in Italy where the couple also understood that the recipe for happiness was simple: all people need is good food and a comfortable space to come together, interact with each other and inspire one another. So it comes as no surprise that Slice popped up in Laguna Beach - as a former artists' colony - and continues to maintain its vibrant sense of community.

And this is what Cary and Suzanne created with Slice: a cozy space for people to gather, exchange ideas, and share their stories. (During COVID - 19, Slice has wonderfully adopted all necessary measures to keep their friendly staff and hungry clients safe and well by halting self -service for drinks, installing glass dividers, offering hand sanitizers, etc.).

Encouraging a sense of community is Slice's goal and its very own innovation, the Beer Wall. With a wristband on radio frequency, thirsty souls can choose one from the 14 craft beers (or four premium wines) which can also be sampled (and which are changed up regularly). Salute!  

So, whenever you are walking along the streets of Laguna Beach, go and support local.

Grab a slice at Slice, pour yourself a cold drink, and remember:

nothing brings people together like good food.

Buon Appetito!
