A new eatery serving Roman-style pizza by the slice has opened in in the Timbergrove area.

BOH Slice opened Oct. 6 inside Railway Heights Market, 8200 Washington Ave., and is a fast-casual pizzeria from chefs Ben McPherson and Chris Zettlemoyer, the culinary minds behind BOH Pizza & Pasta at Bravery Chef Hall.

According to a news release from Daniel Renfrow of Public Content, Roman-style pizza is made in a rectangular shape with a thicker crust and a texture and taste similar to that of focaccia bread.

Single slices are sold for $6.50 and whole pizzas (enough to serve two people) are $12.

Among the pizza options on its menu are the I’m A Funghi (made with wild mushrooms, truffle cream, parmesan cheese, chives and Texas olive oil) and The Frenchy, made with butter, ham, brie and arugula.

BOH customers can also choose from four base sauces, eight cheeses and four toppings (from a list of more than 30 ingredients) to customize their own pizzas.

Guests have the option to add balsamic glaze, elote crema, basil oil or hot honey to their pizzas as finishing touches.

BOH Slice is open from 4-9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 4-10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
