Free Slices at Southside Flying Pizza on National Pizza Day

Local savory pie shop celebrates 15 years, benefits community

Austin’s own Southside Flying Pizza is celebrating 15 years of business this year, and they’re kicking off that celebration by giving away free slices of their round & savory noms at all locations from 3-5pm on Tuesday, February 9th.

Yes, citizen, that’s on National Pizza Day.

Mind you, now, those free slices are one slice per person, for dine-in only … but surely you’re familiar with the old Sicilian saying: “Hey, free pizza is free pizza,” right?

Also, if you’re familiar with Southside itself, you’ll be glad (and possibly drooling) to know that, starting that same day, they’re inaugurating a year-long run of $13 OG pies from their original 2006 menu – and sales of those OG pies will benefit local charities throughout the year. First up, February & March’s OG ’za is The Sword (with marinara, spinach, mozzarella, mushroooms, salami, herbed ricotta, romano & parmesan cheese) – and $1 of each Sword sold will go to the Central Texas Food Bank.

[Note: We like the Central Texas Food Bank, and we like this deal.]

OK, now take a look at that guy in the accompanying photo: That’s Southside Flying Pizza founder Art Goldstein. Doesn’t he look happy? Yes, he does; and why is he happy? Partly because he knows that he makes one hell of a tasty pizza. And his people – in the six Southside locations around the ATX, not even counting the new one in Houston – they also make tasty pizzas. And now’s a good time for you to discover that for yourself, if you haven’t before. And, yeah, to get a slice for free on Tuesday – which would make anyone happy.

Just thought you’d like to know.
