Gimme a Slice

NWA Daily

It may seem impossible, but downtown Bentonville is about to get even better. Parked beside the popular Bentonville Dive, a new farm to table food truck is coming to town - Slice Pizza Bar.

  • In the family: Dave and Jenny Marrs, of Fixer to Fabulous, and family members from New York are bringing this authentic New York style pizza concept to life.
  • Homemade: The pizza is completely homemade, with the dough and sauce coming from a family recipe. We were able to give Slice a try at a Friends and Family event, and there is something special about these ingredients - it was delicious and completely unique.

Slice Pizza Bar will be opening "very soon", so be on the lookout for a specific date on their Instagram.
