Austin’s prized pizza joint specializes in Neapolitan pies, burgers, and other casual eats. Pizza toppings may seem a little on the quirky side, but trust us, they work. There’s the sweet and spicy Hot Honey, laden with tomato sauce, ricotta, Grana Padano, Salumeria Biellese Coppa, Fresno peppers, and Mike’s Hot Honey; the Broccoli Rabe with broccoli rabe and mozzarella; plus a funky La Barbecue collaboration called the Spicy Pickle, piled with mozzarella, Fontina Fontal, Grana Padano, La Barbecue pickles, pickled garlic, Fresno peppers, and fresh dill. Add a bottle of Pinot to the mix from their stellar natural wine list while you’re at it.

Flip-flop over to this neighborhood pizza joint housed in a cute bungalow for some of the best slices in town. Faves err on the funkier side like Funghi (mozzarella, raclette, pecorino romano, mushrooms, black truffle, fresh herbs, parsley) and the Hot Honey (tomato, ricotta, grana padano, salumeria biellese coppa, fresno, Mike’s Hot Honey). They’re only open for lunch from Thursday to Sunday, but it's just as well—otherwise you’d be eating all the carbs all week.

Among the traffic-packed streets of North Lamar, the blue-striped umbrella deck and outdoor area of 40 North pops up like an easygoing European respite. And while the breezy Mediterranean atmosphere mirrors the Neapolitan-style of pies they sling, their unique topping combinations are anything but traditional. Consider the Dandelion, which delicately balances dandelion greens and onion jam with savory slices of pancetta. For an even more curious creation, go with the Spicy Pickle Pizza, a collaboration with La Barbecue that combines pickles (yes, pickles), spicy peppers, fresh dill, and thick slices of garlic which, somehow, work really, really well together.
