Move over Fashion Week – the collection we’re most excited about this season? Homeslice’s new spring collection of pizzas. The NY-style pizzeria has rolled out four new limited editions (150RMB for 16-inch, 230RMB for 20-inch), all of which are quite delicious. The new line-up features a white pizza with Gorgonzola, rocket and pear slices; another white pizza Champy'un, named after Irish potato dish Champ and fittingly tricked out with potato chunks, spring onion and bacon; and the Italian, a classic combo of mozzarella, tomato, Pecorino Romano and basil. Following off the back of guest collab with Christopher Pitts last autumn on a barbecue chicken pizza, Homeslice is pairing up with Carlos Sotomayor, who’s just opened his own new Peruvian concept EKEKO-genesis. Sotomayor is throwing down a lomo saltado pizza, which riffs on a traditional Peruvian-Chinese beef with peppers and onion stir-fry dish – basically just by throwing it on a pizza. Brilliant. You can also grab this by the slice for 30RMB.
If you're after more crust (and Homeslice's sourdough-based one is goals), then the new Detroit pizza is really going to do it for you. Homeslice's Nat Alexander describes it as 'the bastard child of pizza and grill cheese on a focaccia-type base' which is very spot on. For 180RMB a pie, it's being offered every Wednesday in store only – complete with a Detroit soundtrack blasting from the speakers – so make an event out of it 'cause really what else are you doing that could trump pizza?
