There’s a new wood-fired pizza spot in New Jersey, and it’s inside an old train caboose, just a few feet away from an old train station turned distillery.

Home Slice Pizza, in Mount Holly, Burlington County, cooks fresh, wood-fired pizza pies in the caboose, just big enough for a kitchen and staff. A small window for ordering and picking up is in the middle of the caboose, just up a metal ramp.

The pizzeria was established in 2021 as a mobile pizza oven, where the team would regularly serve pizza at local festivals, breweries, shopping outlets and private events. Home Slice set up its first brick-and-mortar—well, steel-and-wheeled—shop towards the end of 2023, while still operating two mobile ovens.

The 11-inch Neapolitan pizzas are thin, toasty and perfect for sharing. Create your own pizza or choose from the nine specialty pies. The Smoked Queen is a classic margherita pizza topped with smoky mozzarella. Try the Joycie pizza, a white pie with sausage, roasted fennel, long hots and garlic, or the Poppy pizza, white pizza topped with broccoli, mushrooms and sliced tomato.

Train Wreck Distillery, Home Slice’s neighbor, is a perfect place to stop by to enjoy the pizza as fresh as possible, alongside refreshing glasses of spirits and cocktails. The charming, vintage train station distillery offers gin, vodka, rum, whiskey and bourbon, all that can be enjoyed on their own, in flights or in creative cocktails.

As the weather warms up, outdoor seating will be available.
