Southside Flying Pizza - AUS - review

We loved the place.

Everything about the pizza was superior: crust, sauce to cheese ratio, and toppings. The crust was crunchy and chewy at the same time, and perfectly cooked. The tomato sauce had just the right bite.

What we especially liked were the toppings. We had a sausage/pepper/mushroom ($14.50 for the large) and an artichoke/sundried tomato ($13.00). The toppings were generously applied and first rate. We especially liked the flavor of the sausage. They don't skimp on the toppings, and they recommended that I not get more that five toppings per pizza.

The service was very friendly, and there is a small dining room, very casual and not fancy. They serve alcohol and have a nice selection of beers.

The newspaper had an article about them. It said that the chefs have decades of experience at local restaurants (I forget which).

This is the first pizza place I have really liked in Austin. Now if I could only find a decent chile relleno.

Southside Flying Pizza is at 2206 South Congress. Their phone # is 442-4246. Cranky Yankee: I'll be looking forward to your review of the place.

Now I need to get to Flip Happy the one night they are open. And has anyone been to the new Taco Xpress, and care to comment?

Also: if you haven't been to Nu Age, on Exposition, take my word for it: it is terrific. Even if you are a carnivore. Greg Spence, are you listening? This is a place I'd like to hear your review of. (Hint: get the Thai Beancurd Wraps)
