In a time where it seems the entire world is going down in a flaming ball of hellfire, it's nice when people come together to help others. On November 28, local pizza icons Home Slice Pizza, Via 313, and Pinthouse Pizza will be participating in Doughvember, the final installment in Home Slice's month-long charity event. 

Held in the dine-in side of Home Slice's South Congress locale, the menu will feature Home Slice versions of Via 313's Detroit-style pies. Offerings include the 500 (natural casing pepperoni, jalapeno, and pineapple) or a classic cheese, both served on a New York-style crust.

In keeping with the pizza partnership, Via 313 will be making its version of Home Slice's Classic #5 (pepperoni and mushrooms) on a thick, Detroit-style crust, all of which can be washed down with Pinthouse Pizza’s Pinthouse Brewing Old Beluga Amber Ale. 

In addition to the special pie-llaborations, Via will also be offering the classic version of its Detroiter pizza (smoked pepperoni under the cheese, natural casing pepperoni on top). For those who prefer the Home Slice staples, don't worry — the full menu will be available.

Twenty percent of proceeds from this fourth and final installment of Doughvember will be donated to No Kid Hungry. The event coincides with Giving Tuesday, the worldwide holiday that encourages folks to give back. Pizza patrons will be pleased to know that I Live Here, I Give Here, which is spearheading Giving Tuesday in Central Texas, will be including Home Slice's final donation as part of the big give. Now that's great news, anyway you slice it.
