Pizza... The Final Frontier

Living in Austin, especially on SoCo, there are two names that become synonymus with pizza: Home Slice and Southside Flying Pizza. Being familiar with both of them but never really into pizza i always asked myself the question of who had the better pie. However, like asking a native from philly who has the better cheesesteak, this question is met with differences in opinion ranging from the flavor of the water in the crust to the mood of the cow that made the milk that yeilded the cheese eventually. Our hero has had wnough of the argument and decided to put the question to rest once and for all.

Bottom line.... Southside is the better pie. While homeslice is good the crust id too flimsy and is normally not cooked enough to keep the toppings on the pie. Speaking of toppings, they seem to be thrown on quite haphazardly... however, i think it only fair to assume that the reason for this is because there is normally a line out the door of people seeking a vaccine to their pizza-addiction in the form of a single slice of peperoni served from their pick up window. Southside on the other hand has the quality that comes from taking time to care for each pizza as it is ordered and not before. The crust is also not cooked in a conventional oven like it is at the Slice but rather in a wood fired oven behind the counter. Now... not only is this fun to look at but the smell coming from this oven fills the eatery with something that can only be described as LEGIT.

Well, ladies and gentlemen there you have it. Tune in next time for another EXTREME austin burger, a full pack of rolaids (lol) and the answer to what the 'flagship' is. Until then this is PanClayKe reminding you that its only Amore when the moon hits you like a pizza pie and nothing else. No... not even if its apple, sorry.
