Tutta’s Pizza Food Truck to Open Brick and Mortar in the West End

Jeremy Scott spent years playing music in Deep Ellum, frequenting venues such as Curtain Club, Blind Lemon, and Club Clearview. A decade later he and his wife, Amanda, conceptualized a full venue for new music talent, along with a kitchen showcasing a unique spin on traditional pizza. They originally planned to open the restaurant in Lewisville, but things didn’t pan out. Instead, they opened Tutta’s Pizza, a food truck specializing in “smoked meat pizzas.”

Every year, right before the Rangers kick-off their season, the Ballpark comes up with outrageous new food items to trick us into buying their giant hotdogs and monstrous hamburgers.

And every year, we say no more. Please, no more.

How to Cure and Smoke Your Own Bacon

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love bacon. (But I also don’t know that many people in general, and if someone I encounter doesn’t like bacon, I usually erase them from my memory with alcohol and psychedelic sessions inside a sweat lodge.) I don’t usually go for the turkey bacon, the tofu bacon, or the ostrich bacon I’ve seen springing up in alleyway street vendor stands around Kansas. Bacon is beautiful, erotic, communal, unassuming, nourishing, and full of life-giving neurons and juices. The smell alone could lift a lifeless body from its slumber (under the right moon cycle, of course).

Look What I Made: Homemade Peppered Bacon

I almost didn’t do this post. Making my own bacon was a learning experience. And not the cool kind. I’m into learning experiences where I either learn that I’m immediately good at something or I learn because documentaries are educational.* This wasn’t like that. I figured bacon makin’ would be a challenge, of course, but […]

Look What I Made: Maple Bacon Glazed Donuts Recipe

I’m not one of these wide-eyed, narrow arteried, “bacon makes everything better” optimists. Admittedly, bacon does, in fact, make most things better (notably life), but things like bacon cereal, bacon vodka and chicken fried bacon are all best left, well, uninvented. I grew up in a bacon loving house, among a bacon-loving people,* and while […]

Former NHS Tavern Will Not Be Second Location of Off-Site Kitchen

At this very moment,  I am shooting the breezes with Nick Badovinus. He is on my speaker phone. He is laughing so hard and spouting Nick-isms so fast I can’t take them all down. It all started when I noticed a Bud Kennedy tweet:  “@eatsbeat Dallas’ retro Off Site Kitchen burger grill opening 2nd loc[ation] […]
