Best White Pizza or Pepperoni Pizza (Austin)

gossymer Oct 30, 2008 12:26 AM

Not much of a fan of tomato sauces so I usually go with White Pizza or if I do go with others like pepperoni, I skip the tomato sauce.

Was wondering if anyone could point out their favorite places for white or pepperoni :)

    I'm a fan of the white pie with truffle oil and fried sage at Asti.

      Salvation Pizza has a strong clam white pizza and a strong margarita sans tomato sauce but w/ tomatoes (i guess this is technically a white pizza). They've got my favorite pizza in town, but the service is always pretty bad.

        I like Milto's thick crusted pizza, you can get a slice and a small Greek salad for a great price-that's why there is such a great following of college students and locals alike.

          We went to Hyde Park Grill the other night for theirs only to find that it had been taken off the menu. We left and went around the corner to Canoli Joe's - where its also very good (and still exists on the line-up). They have two versions, but not always at the same time.

            Haven't done this in years, but I used to go to the Brick Oven on Red River and get a pizza pie with alfredo sauce, artichoke hearts, garlic, jalapeños, and pepperoni. It was mighty good.

              Although I have always had great service there, I would like to agree with aurent about Salvation Pizza's white pies. The shrimp white pie is great, capers, plump tasty shrimp and lemon juice, I have never been disappointed by this east coast style pie!

                Reviving this thread because I finally got to try the rosemary/potato/goat cheese white pie at House Pizzeria the other day. Cheese/starch heaven. Be forewarned, though, the pizza had a fair amount olive oil drizzled on top. If you are averse to that kind of thing, don't get it. The potatoes were perfectly cooked and lightly brown/crisped on top, the cheese creamy, the smell of the fresh herbs so fragrant and delicious, and of course the crust at House is a nice combination of thin/chewy/crisp. Got a side ramekin of roasted garlic & olives, put these toppings on my pie, it was even better.
