STORY – LOVE AT FIRST SLICE
Back in 2003, Marlo and Jason went on their first date and shared their first love of pizza together.
Marlo actually said she hated pizza and called it, “greasy, cheesy and fast food.” Jason then took her to their first dinner date at DeLorenzo’s in Trenton to prove her wrong and show her what great pie can be. Jason says, “She hadn’t tried the right pizza.” Marlo added, “We say it was love at first bite — and the date wasn’t bad either!”
In 2007, the couple went on to open their first SliCE location together at 10th and Federal streets near the Italian Market. The first SliCE opened quietly with support for their family and a long-build out so the couple could perfect their concept and first restaurant together. The Dilks waited until after Valentine’s Day to open so that they had one last night out on the town before their love affair consumed them. The first few years, Jason and Marlo spent every Valentine’s Day together at that location until their children came along.
Over the last ten years, the Dilks have gone on to expand the SliCE
family – with three more locations and six children, plus the addition of P’unk Burger. Locations are now open in Rittenhouse/Center City, Washingtown Township and Fishtown. The next generation of pizza lovers in the family includes Nadia, Capri, Avana, Chiara – plus twins Luciana and Giorgia.
TRENTON STYLE PIZZA
offers award-winning Trenton style pies in Rittenhouse Square, South Philadelphia, Fishtown 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 four 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.
The newest SliCE
location, in Fishtown, takes the SliCE
concept to the next level by using all organic and natural ingredients – and features an expanded selection of gluten-free pizza.
In addition to pizza, SliCE offers a full line of fresh made salads and other specialties, including double-cooked chicken wings, homemade donuts, Stromboli, calzones and more. All 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.
