Southside Slice in Rosemary Beach Serving Standout Pizza
February 26, 2020 by Manny Chavez
If you ever hear someone singing “Pizza By The Slice, Oh So Nice,” you can be sure that they've been to Southside Slice, the local's favorite pizzeria that prides itself on made-to-order, awesome pizza renditions.
Southside Slice is located in Rosemary Beach on the south side of Scenic 30A, next to the Rosemary Beach Town Hall and Post Office. Walk past the outdoor tables and through the front door and you'll see the “pizza joint,” is fun and cool inside. The restaurant also serves hot and cold sandwiches & subs, salads, and a killer French Dip.
Southside Slice is part of the Last Call Restaurant Group which includes Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar on the top floor of the same building, and also Shades Bar & Grill and Shaka Sushi & Noodle Bar, both right down the road in Inlet Beach.
“We offer custom pizza with the freshest ingredients available designed around customer needs and feedback,” says Restaurant Manager Rob Hurst. “All of our doughs, cheeses, meats - everything is top notch to give the highest satisfaction to our customers.”
Pizza slices (or whole pizzas) are all made to order, nothing is pre-made unless you call ahead of time. The New York Style crust (hand-tossed) is thin and made from scratch daily. Adding their house red sauce (also made from scratch using only fresh herbs and unique ingredients), this pizza foundation will provide the basis for whatever meats and veggies you opt for.
A stand-out customer favorite pizza is the Margherita, made with Roasted Garlic, Mascarpone Spread, Roma Tomatoes, Basil, Burrata, and Cracked Black Pepper. Competing for their customer-favorite pizzas is The Gastronomer Pizza, made with Garlic Oil, Mozzarella, Banana Peppers, Soppressata, Caramelized Onions, and a Drizzle of Truffle Oil. Pizza by the Slice prices start at $6 ($1/ea. for additional toppings) with a Daily Special Slice of the Day priced at $8. Whole pizzas range from $20 (Medium, 16”) to $30 (large, 20”). For those with food intolerances, vegan cheese and gluten-free crusts are available.
Not to be outdone, Southside Slice offers excellent sandwiches including the Meatball Sub, Turkey Club, and the French Dip. Sandwich prices range from $12-$14. A Sandwich of the Day Special will soon be added to the menu.
The salads are a real plate-full with Caesar, Greek, and House salads available at $10 each.
Beverages include numerous domestic or craft beers, wine by the glass or bottle, champagne, and sodas (check out the Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry, Root Beer, and Orangina).
Should you still have room for more following your main meal, or if your sweet tooth turns ON during your visit, desserts include Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Cinni-Bites, and Brown Butter Rice Crispy Treats.
The Southside Slice interior is very cozy with minimal artificial lighting giving way to huge window-light providing the perfect atmosphere to enjoy your meal….or, you can choose to dine outside at one of their outdoor dining tables. While at the restaurant, be sure to check out their cool gear with whimsical t-shirts….favorites include “In Pizza We Trust,” and “Love at First Bite,” hats and koozies.
Southside Slice menu items can be ordered to go, and they will even deliver within a three-mile radius of Rosemary Beach.
As a grab-n-go or sit-down restaurant, Southside Slice is centrally located within the Rosemary Beach community. Easily within walking distance to our beautiful SoWal beaches, finger food is primo for those wanting an excellent meal AND beach experience! Don’t be surprised if you walk out singing, “Pizza by the Slice, Oh So Nice!”
