ABOUT SLICE

SliCE offers award-winning Trenton style pies in Rittenhouse Square, South Philadelphia and Washington Township. In the beginning, owners Jason and Marlo Dilks saw a void in Philadelphia for true Italian pizza. They fittingly opened their first location one block from the Italian Market, used ingredients purchased daily from the market itself. They baked, tested, tasted, mixed and flipped until they had a pizza that would beat any American-ized slice of pie in the region. “Most consider our pies gourmet,” said Jason Dilks. “We consider ourselves what pizza was meant to be.”

Dough at all three locations is made fresh every day with only the best flour. It is hand tossed and topped first with the highest grades of cheese, then baked with our homemade, hand crushed San Marzano tomato sauce. Vegetables are purchased and chopped daily. Olives are pitted in house. Pepperoni is even hand cut. Pies are finished using extra virgin olive oil and baked on hot stones and cooked to a crisp, delicious perfection. The outcome is a thin, lightly topped, fragrant pie. From the Margherita Pizza with its fresh mozzarella and basil leaves to the Italiana with prosciutto di parma, gorgonzola cheese and arugula there is a taste of Italy in every bite.

In addition to pizza, SliCE offers a full line of fresh made salads and other specialties, including double-cooked chicken wings (South Philadelphia and Washington Township only), homemade donuts (South Philadelphia and Washington Township only), Stromboli, calzones and more. All three locations are BYOB and offer pick-up, delivery and dine-in. Washington Township location features a full dining room that is home to birthday parties, charity events and large family gatherings.

SliCE was named the number one pizza in Philadelphia by voters at the 2013 Philadelphia Pizza Olympics. The gluten free pie crust was also named one of the region’s finest by Zagat. Other “best of” accolades and prominent mentions include USA Today, Travel and Leisure, Zagat, Philadelphia Style Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, South Jersey Magazine, MyPHL City Voter Hot List, Metro, Philly.com, Philadelphia Inquirer, South Philly Review and others.

ABOUT JASON AND MARLO DILKS

Husband and wife team Jason and Marlo Dilks went on their first date at one of their favorite pizza places, DeLorenzo’s. It was love at first sight for this power duo and their mutual passion for the pie, as they have gone on to open three locations in two states. They make the perfect complement to each other as they balance operations while raising four beautiful children, and even find time to help their family run other successful area businesses.

Jason grew up on and has a life-long lover for Trenton style pizza. On nearly any day of the week he can be found in one of the three SliCE locations supplying pies to national celebrities, schmoozing with regulars, working with staff and continuously adding embellishments to keep SliCE modern and stylish.

Marlo has spent a lifetime in the kitchen as she grew up in an Italian family that loved to cook and more importantly loved to eat. Her father owned and operated two popular Philadelphia kitchenettes (Marlo’s and Cousins). Therefore, she spent much of her childhood in the two kitchens helping her family while developing her passion for food.  Behind the scenes, Marlo brings her experience to the SliCE kitchens by designing new dishes, shopping for the finest and freshest ingredients, and ensuring every single pie exceeds expectations.
