If Neapolitan-style goodness with a semolina crust strikes your fancy, try this pizza. The Italian hoagies, calzones, and stromboli are also recommended. Don't forget the healthy and reasonably priced salads.

This pizza has some crispness and a little char on the bottom from the oven, but the slices are still flexible with some chewiness. The menu is small: a few signature pizzas such as a Margherita, a Hot Honey, and one with kale, plus weekly specials.

It's not just about beer, although they are brewing up some of the best pils and IPAs in Central Texas. It's also about the sophisticated pizza. You can't beat the one with Gulf oysters.

These hand-tossed pies are made in an indie neighborhood place so serious about New York-style pizza that the owners take the employees to the Big Apple to experience the real thing.
