If you're looking for the best NYC-style pizza in Austin, look no further than The Pizza Shop, where their slogan is "straight outta Brooklyn".Texas has a lot of cuisine that is uniquely their own (Tex-Mex and Texan BBQ to name a few), but one thing it doesn't have is it's own kind of pizza. Luckily, this is where New Yorkers come to the rescue. If you're looking for the best NYC-style pizza in Austin, look no further than The Pizza Shop, where their slogan is "straight outta Brooklyn". And straight out of the city they are. Owner Andrew Belchic grew up in NYC, but has decades of experience opening restaurants all over the US. As for Austin, you might be familiar with his yummy work over at South Austin's Mercury Pizza.
The Pizza Shop has carved out it's little spot in Austin with a beautiful Airstream trailer, string lights, a movie projector that displays a different film every night, cable spool tables and straight up some of the best New York-style pizza in this city. Andrew says cheese pizza is the foundation of everything, but pizza adventure seekers should check out The Lebowski (baked breaded chicken, red onion and jalapenos drizzled with ranch dressing and hot sauce) or the Big Bad Wolf (pulled pork in homemade BBQ sauce and topped with spicy slaw)! The Pizza Shop also offers calzones, strombolis, salads and a whole lotta NYC love. You can easily kill a few hours at your new favorite neighborhood spot.
