Good brick oven Italian pizza in Houston, Texas? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Good brick oven Italian pizza in Houston, Texas?

    Anyone know of a good authentic place here in Houston? Until I get my oven built, I am always searching.

    Authentic pizza is difficult to come by in Houston. If you'd settle for good pizza I'd say either NY Pizzeria in Midtown, or Fuzzy's Pizza on Westheimer. I haven't been to Fuzzy's in years, so I'm not sure if the pizza is the same. Star pizza gets rated high, but I don't like it at all...the crust tastes like cardboard. Barry's Pizza also gets rated well, but I've never been. If you find anywhere else be sure to post it. Thanks!

      Yeah, I have to agree that Houston is pitiful as far as pizza is concerned. I have checked out Fuzzy's but was not impressesed. It is ok for the uninformed and uninitiated peasants, but not anywhere near authentic Italian. There is a place I have heard of near Rice village, Domincio's or something like that. Maybe I will try there or the NY place you suggested. Thanks and good eating!

        Ciros is not to bad, just east of Memorial City Mall on Katy Freeway. They moved that beast of an oven when they moved across the Freeway. My wife told me about one in Montrose, I'll see if I can get the name.

          I've not been...but I've heard that Pulcinella is authentic. The guys seems to have been trained by Enzo in Naples...
