Acclaimed Dallas-born Cane Rosso Pizza recently branched out of the Big D and it brought its wood-fired Neapolitan pizza along with it. In addition to expanding to Austin, the concept launched its first Houston outpost in June 2016, situated in The Heights neighborhood.
There, Cane Rosso founder Jay Jerrier promises classic Neapolitan pizza, which is quickly baked in a wood-burning oven made with bricks from Sorrento, Italy. But the restaurant’s success goes beyond an authentic oven—fans appreciate the spot’s use of Double Zero flour, premium tomato sauce and mozzarella that is made in-house. We recommending going classic with a Margherita pizza or trying the off-the-menu Honey Bastard, which blends a honey drizzle, spicy bacon jam and hot soppressata. Cane Rosso also offers salads, pastas and sandwiches.
The restaurant is open for lunch, Tuesday through Sunday, and dinner daily.
