Announcing the 2012 Home Slice Carnival O Pizza!!!

It’s baaaack.  Yes for the 7th year in a row, Home Slice is hosting our charity Carnival O Pizza.

When:  Saturday November, 10th from noon – 7pm ( See the full schedule HERE )

Where:  On the Home Slice “campus” aka the parking lot between Original and More Home Slice (1415 South Congress)

Why: to celebrate our 7th anniversary, celebrate the art of hand tossed pizza, and most importantly to raise money for this year’s charity Austin Bat Cave.  They do great work in the community and we’d like to throw some dough their way (but we need YOUR help.)

What: A veritable smorgasbord of pizza zaniness:


Win FREE PIZZA FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR by competing in the legendary Pizza Eating Contest or the infamous Hands on an Eggplant Sub (HOES) Contest.


Be the only human (or being of any kind really) to be able to RESERVE A TABLE at Original Home Slice for an ENTIRE YEAR by buying a ticket to the Gigantic Raffle.  You can also win:

  • A custom made Dublin Bottlingworks belt drive bicycle (7k value)
  • Hotel stays at Hotel San Jose and Hotel Saint Cecilia
  • Stuff from just about every one of our neighboring businesses here on SoCo.


Witness as pizzaoli from pizza shops all over the city test their pizza tossing skills against Home Slice’s best.  Contests include fastest and largest stretch.


  • Big Don
  • Minor Mishap Marching Band
  • The Love Leighs
  • Little Stolen Moments
  • Break dancers, Graffiti Artists and more

Midway Games

A Midway full of wacky Carnival games featuring tons of prizes for the kiddos including:

  • Pee Wee Pizzaioli
  • House of Beauty
  • Picture Booth
  • Can Calamity
  • Meatball Madness
  • Plinko
  • Bouncy House
  • and much more

How (you can help): Come on by the shops and purchase a raffle ticket (hey, they’re on sale now), apply for one of the contests, join our team of volunteers called The Pie Club, and most importantly plan to attend and bring your friends!  Did we mention that ALL proceeds are donated to Austin Bat Cave?

We hope to see you there on November 10th!

Team Home Slice

P.S.  If you are a business and you want to sponsor the Dunking Booth, hit us up and let’s chat.  Yes, really!
