Urban Crust - Plano

simply_victoria Aug 28, 2009 09:55 AM

Lately, I've been feeling the love for old Plano. I met people at Urban Crust on 15th and was pleasantly surprised. We had a couple of glasses of wine and the four cheese pizza with truffle oil. It was delicious. Our waiter wasn't that great, but I think he was new. The pizza choices looked great, but my friends weren't up for experiementing. I will have to go back to try the fig and prosciutto one.

I just wanted to get a quick word out.

    I say eat one of the other pizza first., then order the prosciutto and fig pizza for dessert. It's sickly sweet. Crust has decent, not outstanding, texture but was bland bland bland.

      Ok, I have to admit, I don't remember the crust because once I got to it, I decided to make use of the extra olive spread they had on the table.

      Thanks for the heads up on the fig one. I thought the cheese would cancel the sweet out.

      Urban Crust has been one of my favorite new pizzerias to open. Even though they use a gas-fired oven, they also use some logs and the pizzaioli seem to have a good feel for the oven. I've had consistently good pizza there - typically go with plain cheese and Jimmy's sausage. My wife likes the salads and they have a few other things on the menu. No sandwiches though - which I think would be good at lunch. I tried the black & blue pizza once but it was just too tricked up. The inside is very cool and they have a neat bar on the roof that I hear gets really crowded on the weekend. They have Widmer Bros. on a tap that comes out of their frozen bar...gimmicky but it is pretty cool. This is definitely worth checking out.

        It's a better place to drink (goto the bar upstairs) than to eat. The pizzas are better than your typical chain delivery joints but don't compare to some of the better pizza places in the Dallas area. The crust is thin but soggy in spots. Sauce is good but doesn't stand out.

          We ate there last night. Caprese to start followed by a pie with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, & garlic. I would of liked the Caprese better if fresh cracked pepper had been provided. Pizza tasted good, especially the crust which was not crispy, although a few more tomatoes would have been nice.

          A group of friends and I went there for the first time last night and LOVED IT !!!!. Had the Antipasto Platter, Sangria, The Quattro Formaggi Pizza, and a Sausage/Truffle Oil, Carmalized Onion Pizza. The Sangria is the best I've had in DFW nd you MUST order the carmalized onions on any pizza you get. Great addition to Downtown Plano-I'll be back :)
