Slyce Pizza

Among the numerous discoveries we've made about the Indian Rocks Beach area (which include uncrowded beaches) is what we believe to be the greater Tampa Bay area's leading pizza so far; that is, Slyce Pizza Bar, just across the road from the Gulf of Mexico at 311 Gulf Boulevard. Although not quite the equal of the pies available in Chicago (but, then again, is anyone?), Slyce offers some inventive (if not outright bizarre) topping combinations like the "Pear a Dice" (olive oil, sliced pear, gorgonzola, mozzarella, and prosciutto) and the "Coney Island" (beanless chili, sliced all-beef hot dogs, cheddar, diced white onions, ketchup, and spicy mustard), plus a decent selection of craft beers on tap and bottle (although they have a tendency to run out of the more popular varieties). After several hours of baking in the warm Florida sun, there are few better things than sitting in an air-conditioned restaurant sipping a Wit bier and indulging in a slice of red clam pie (see photo above). If you happen to be in town during tourist season, be sure to show up early to avoid a long wait for tables...
