Micucci’s Sicilian Slab, the Cure for the Common Slice

4 Feb

Micucci's Sicilian Slab

Well, I finally made it into Micucci’s on India Street to get a taste of the famous Sicilian slab. As many amazing things as I have read and heard about it, I still think it was completely underrated! This pizza is a vision of perfection with minimal cheese, a sweet homemade red sauce that was beautifully glossy with chunks of tomato on deliciously chewy homemade dough. A word of advice for those dying to try it: Go during the week or at a non-peak time on the weekend to avoid a large crowd. Mark and I went at noon on a Saturday and it was wall-to-wall people, so it was not good for people who hate crowds (i.e. Mark). We finally reached the front of the line, grabbed two slices off the rack, made our boxes and took it home so we could enjoy it with a side of basketball and beer. After all, what is pizza without beer? This stuff has a shelf-life designed to outlast the hype. It’s definitely my favorite slice in Portland.

Note to self: Must go again soon. Very, very soon.

    I’ve heard legend of Micucci’s pizza for a while, and your photo has me wondering why I haven’t ventured there yet – it looks amazing!

    Looks good! I too have heard of this mythical slab of pie but have yet to try it. Maybe someday.

    I love this slice! My (ex) boyfriend didn’t like it…one of the many reasons it was never going to work 😉
    I’ve read some of your other reviews and I must say we are in complete agreement!

      Thanks for reading! I’d consider someone who didn’t like Micucci’s pizza to have a personality flaw too 😉
