Pizza. A main food group in the college diet. In Provo, there are hundreds of restaurant chains, half of them being pizza. But Slab Pizza is a local independent pizzeria and offers unique pizza creations and toppings not found anywhere else in the state.
The sit down or delivery pizzeria offers as much spunk as J-Dawgs, giving college students a distinctive atmosphere to hang out at after class or work. The restaurant is set up like a small elementary school cafeteria with long horizontal tables catering to big groups of family and friends. This openness gives the customers that underlining reason of why they ate out — to socialize.
A “slab” is a quarter of a pizza, roughly the size of two large slices of pizza, and you can choose a traditional slab ($4), premium slab ($5) or super premium slab ($6). These pizza slabs vary from Pepperoni to Thai Chicken, Pulled Pork and Rosemary Potato+ Bacon (to name a few). Each slab is made with homemade dough, a strong underlying homemade sauce base, with quality cheese and toppings all cooked on a rotating hearth oven. These slabs are made the second you order, also giving the pizza the fresh, crisp taste. Average meal price is from $5 to $7.50, including a drink.
“It’s invented, both the style and toppings,” said Alison Holdaway, a regular of Slab pizza. “I will go anywhere that has chicken cordon bleu pizza.”
Run by a small staff and tiny kitchen, the pizzas can be seen being made while ordering and getting a fountain drink, again living up to its friendly environment.
Slab is located at 699 E. 800 North, right underneath Campus Plaza apartments. Slab is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday thru Saturday. More information about menu and pricing can be found at http://slabpizza.com.
So come and enjoy a friendly pizzeria that puts entrées on its pizza, varying from chicken enchilada to spinach salad—making pizza in Provo a little more different.
