You’ve heard of lasagna. You’ve heard of pizza. But have you heard of lasagna pizza?! Of course you haven’t because we, Empire Slice House CREATED IT! Our  Uncle Buck was named the best pizza in OKC this month for good reasoning– is it a pizza? Is it pasta? Honestly, it can be whatever you want it to be, no matter what it is, this white pie of ours will have you drooling. Don’t believe us? Keep reading to see exactly why Empire Slice House’s “Uncle Buck” was named best pizza in OKC this month.


What is the “Uncle Buck”?

If you ask anyone what kind of cuisine pizza is, you wouldn’t be surprised if they answered Italian. That isn’t wrong, but I think it is safe to say that the modern pizza we know today is very different from the Neapolitan-styled Italian flatbreads. If asked, I would call pizza, hmmm.. let’s say a collaboration! America has added a few twists to pizza making it more unique for each person’s desire. For example, thicker crust and lots of toppings! The more toppings, the better, right? I do love lots of flavors, but sometimes it can be a little too much. I start to crave true Italian flavor instead of pineapples or pepperoni. Here at Empire Slice House we want to take you back to Italy, where we drew our inspiration from for the “Uncle Buck” 

This signature pie will be sure to satisfy all your Italian cravings! Starting off with our hand-tossed pizza dough cooked to a golden brown with a flavor that carries throughout the meal. Then, baked marinara and marinated mozzarella, followed by the perfect amount of Italian meatballs is what brings together this mouth-watering dish. BUT WAIT! Is a pizza truly Italian if it isn’t topped off with fresh basil? We didn’t think so either– add your basil and THEN your dish is complete. That’s right, we can make authentic Neapolitan-style pizza with special Italian ingredients right here in OKC. Don’t believe us? We dare you to come taste for yourself.
