1. Little Deli & Pizzeria

One of Austin’s most underrated pizzerias, the Jersey-style pies draw fans from all over.

Their pizza is made using homemade dough which is prepared in the artisan style the old fashioned way. They have the options of curbside pickup and dine-in service is available at the patio in Windsor.

2. East Side Pies

The creative pies look absolutely beautiful – not that you’ll be able to resist digging in before taking an Instagram snap. Fresh, local thin crust pizza is topped with great ingredients such as whole-milk mozzarella, other fantastic cheese and Texas-sourced meats.

The bases here are pretty unique: you can get a chimichurri base pie, black bean sauce or ricotta if you want to go wild.

4. Pieous

The Neapolitan-style pies here are worth travelling for from all over Texas. You can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu, but we love their extra house-smoked pastrami – it’s what they’re best known for.

Crusts are big, doughy and utterly delicious.

5. Bufalina

A traditional pizza with some funky ingredients makes Bufalina so special. Choose summer squash, salsa verde, pickled onion and peanuts or a harissa lamb pie.

The best news you’ll hear today? All pizzas are 50% off from 4-5.30pm, but just remember that seating is on a first come, first seated basis so it does get busy.
