In their own words, “Homeslice is the love child of three men with a passion for making and eating wood-fired pizza.” I met this Kiwi threesome early on in Bowler life. Hugging their homemade wood-fired-oven-cum-trailer is a great way to keep warm on a cold evening. Their pizzas are stunning—light with a crisp base—and I’m thrilled they’ve shared a little doughy delight here.
