When it comes to pizza, the varieties are endless. If tasked with creating a comprehensive round-up, the results would be endless too. For now, here are six pizzas you must try in Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas.
A list of pizzas isn’t complete without a Margherita variety and the one from Marty McPies is a top contender. The 10” pie is topped with housemade red sauce, EVOO, a generous amount of fresh mozzarella and basil. Choose from honey, Mike’s Hot Honey, balsamic glaze or roasted garlic oil for drizzling.
Earth Day Pie
For those who prefer a veggie pizza, the Earth Day Pie from House of Rock is the pizza for you. Red sauce is swapped for pesto and topped with fresh goat cheese, mushrooms, artichoke hearts and baby spinach. Order a side of the famed pepperoni rolls and oven-baked wings to round out the spread.
If you stop by B&J’s Pizza, ordering the Jacks Special is a must. The classic, meat-lover’s adjacent pie is topped with mozzarella, pepperoni, Italian sausage, onion and the kicker, double extra garlic. Order with a side of ranch and buffalo sauce to really take it to the next level.
Bradley’s Lasagna Pizza
If you love lasagna, you will without a doubt love this pizza from Mesquite Street Pizza and Pasta Co. Mozzarella cheese is topped with meatballs, ricotta and homemade marinara sauce for a subtle nod to its namesake.
Arugula & Prosciutto
Pizza made in a coal-fired oven is all about the chewy and crispy crust. With that in mind, you can’t go wrong with any pizza at Dylan’s Coal Oven Pizzeria, but the salty prosciutto and parmesan contrasted by the mild ricotta and mozzarella that’s topped with a fresh, acidic kick from the lemon-dressed arugula creates a flavor combination that is truly unmatched.
Sometimes, perfection is found in simplicity, and The Godmother at Sals Bronx Pizza is a prime example of that. Baby spinach, artichoke hearts and roasted garlic top a secret three-cheese blend that bakes right into the crust. This pizza is light, rich and offers a surprisingly dynamic result.
