Some Changes at 'Slice'

It's not really news that Neapolitan-style pizza has become huge in the U.S. What is news is that the Naples Tourism Bureau will be sponsoring/underwriting Serious Eat's pizza blog, Slice, for the next six months. What does that mean? Basically, all posts on Slice after this one will deal 100 percent with Neapolitan pizza—where to eat it, how to make it, etc. And also that all posts after this one will be written in Italian. More

October 13, 2009: Slice's Six-Year Anniversary

A birthday pizza from New York Pizza Suprema. [Photograph: Adam Kuban] Hola, everybody. It's me, Slice Dude. Well, guess what? This blog is six years old today! Yup, that's right. On this day in 2003, at 12:36 p.m., Slice made its crusty, saucy, cheesy debut. As far as mascottin' round these here parts, I wasn't even a ball of dough then! But Adam's been at this the whole time. And I think all this pizza-blogging has made him a little crazy. I mean, look, he made me wear this stupid hat, then he spanked me six times (what's that...

Some Twitter Crap

A couple things about Twitter as regards this website... First Thing: New Twitter Box As eagle-eye readers may have noticed, we added a small box to the right over there that displays the latest tweet from the @Slice Twitter account. The Slice Twitter account functions in a few different ways:... More

Slice Twitter Intel Bot: @slicenyc

OK. I asked what you thought about turning @slice into a sort of pizza-intel-gathering source. Most people balked. So I took a suggestion from LikesToEatJunk and created a new account. @slicenyc will retweet anything tweeted at it. So if you're out and about and see a new pizzeria going in somewhere, just tweet something like this: "@slicenyc: New Famous Ray's opening on 27th & 6th" The @slicenyc account will then retweet that to all followers. I'm not sure how well this will work, but it might be a fun exercise in crowd-sourced pizza info gathering and dissemination.... More

Thinking of Making Some Changes to Slice Twitter; Would Like Your Input

I know you're probably getting sick of me posting about Twitter the last couple of days, but bear with me. This one is warranted. —The Mgmt. Since I've been twittering as @slice, followers have seen the account go through a couple different phases. Phase One began as my own personal account, which made sense to me at the time—after all, there was little separation between the personal and the pizza in my world. For many of my friends, longtime readers, and Twitter followers, Slice and "Adam Kuban" were pretty much synonymous. But a few months ago, I realized that the... More

Pizza Pix on Photograzing

Lactose and My Adios

Slice Is No Longer Being Updated. Feel Free to Poke Around the Archives Ladies and gents, it's time to level with you. I've been having sleepless nights as of late for more than one reason. First, I noticed that whenever I ate pizza or anything with a dairy component, I started feeling funny. I won't go into details, as you may be eating lunch right now, but suffice it to say, it wasn't pretty. After seeing my doctor, he diagnosed lactose intolerance. I pressed on for the sake of this site, trying Lactaid and reading various lactose intolerance forums for... More
