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.”

Look What I Made: Ratatouille Polenta Pizza

A friend recently lent me her copy of Home Made Summer. “It’s one of my favorite cook books,” she gushed while turning the pages, filled with alluring photos and luscious recipes. After taking it home with me, I came across a recipe for a large polenate pizza with spicy ratatouille. I like ratatouille, and even though the traditional French dish is normally associated with summer, the warm stew of vegetables makes for a perfect comfort meal come the cooler months. I also like polenta. I’d only ever eaten it as a porridge, so the idea of baking it into a crust was intriguing. I decided to make the dish, except with a few personal tweaks. Here’s the recipe.

Meet the Owners of Greenville Avenue Pizza Company

The Greenville Avenue Pizza Company we have come to know and love over the past seven years has changed. Put down that box of tissues and rest easy, though, because with this wave of change comes a refreshing interior, innovative range of toppings, and ease in the late-night flow of foot traffic. Pizza maker Sammy Mandell and “First Pizza Lady” Molly Mandell gave us a glimpse into their journey over the years, and and idea of what exactly makes their pizza so enticing. From a menu full of hashtags — like #MeatCandy — to a communal wooden table stretching through the back, this place still delivers that same crisp, cheesy pie-perfection, but with a polished update.

Zoli’s New Gluten-Free Pizza is Not a Gluten-Free Pizza

Yesterday, Eater Dallas posted a note titled “Zoli’s Cleverly Solves Gluten-Free Pizza Quandary.” The opening line to the story leads one to believe Jay Jerrier was adding a gluten-free pizza to the menu by substituting pizza dough with french fries. He’s not. Jerrier says it was a joke. Funny?

Taste Test Thursday: Dallas Delivery Pizza

I once watched a Freaky Eaters episode of a 20-something man addicted to pizza. Bread, cheese, and tomato sauce was all he’d eat. No veggies, no nothing. His health suffered, his personal life went down the drain, and he was throwing up some weird gunk every morning.

I finished watching that episode and wanted to eat pizza immediately.
Here’s the thing: You can’t hate pizza. There are all sorts of pizzas, so it’s impossible to dislike. Hate Cane Rosso’s? Go to Zoli’s. Want to dine in? No. Fine. Do take out. Or better yet, sit on your couch and watch the Mavs lose by one point and drop to the eighth seed, while you order a 16-incher and swallow your woes with gobfuls of cheese.

That’s the way we do it here in the Big D. We order for delivery.
