Run by Michael Friedman and Greg Augarten out of a commercial kitchen space on Sunday nights only, Pizza Delicious aims to bring Big Apple–style pizza to the Big Easy.

Dear Slice: 'May I Recommend Johnny's in Louisiana and Its Cajun Pizza?'

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got a great email that really makes me enjoy blog-blabbing. Mike here was one of the tens of thousands of folks who discovered Slice when the Yahoo homepage linked to our Domino's new recipe review last week.

To be blunt, I have never, ever been a fan of Domino's. It always tasted quite crappy to me. I used to... More

Girls Rescued After Calls For Pizza

An alert Domino's employee helped spare two little girls from further neglect at the hands of their mother, TV station KATC reports. The mother had left her daughters, ages 8 and 10, alone for several hours with nothing to eat in a roach-infested, feces-strewn trailer. After the girls tried several times to order pizza, the employee became suspicious and called authorities, who discovered them.... More
