The concept is headed up by of Emirati restaurateur, Mahmood AlKhamis, known for Drop Coffee and Origami Sushi. He explained: “I love artisan pizza but always have a hard time finding a spot that offers both delicious food and a cool atmosphere in Dubai. We envision Moon Slice as a destination for creative artisan pizza that trendy young people and families can enjoy.”

You won’t find any ordinary dough at this pizza joint, as the chefs prepare the slices in a special way. Milk is added to the dough, which is then left to ferment for 48 hours before being shaped, topped and fired in the custom Italian oven at 380°C.

The industrial-style space seats 26 people inside and another 20 outdoors, with the dining area integrated into the open kitchen. Inspired by elements of nostalgia, you’ll find traditional open front school desks, hand-written paper menus on the walls, vintage ceiling lamps and leather-bound books.
