Mary’s new venture offers pizza by the slice

Mary’s Pizza Shack staff has been practicing and perfecting its Slice Shack service for a few weeks and opens “softly” today, Friday, Sept. 23, just in time for Vintage Festival weekend.

Key to producing good pizza with crispy crusts quickly are the two new Italian (of course) ovens that can heat the pizza to 600 degrees. The pizza crusts are still thrown up in the air and spun by hand, sauced or not, and a few fixed slice flavors include pepperoni, Hawaiian Luau, pepperoni and mushroom, pesto and two toppings, Mary’s Combo, and La Romana with oven-roasted tomatoes, Italian artichoke hearts, feta, mozzarella, provolone and pesto sauce.

Or you can “build your own” with pesto or tomato sauce and lots of toppings you just point to at the counter.

Salads are available, too. House and Caesar are both under $12, as well as breadsticks and a whole new takeaway, a huge meatball in a medium sized bread bowl topped with tomato sauce and cheese.
