Adventure #54: Milano's

Three cheers for impromptu adventures! Karin had sampled the fruits of Milano's before, but this was my first time. I just happened to be in the neighborhood when Adam brought the pizzas (one cheese, one pepperoni, and one sausage) from this local South Austin establishment.

Adventure #53: Firefly Pies

Pizza Adventurers, I have let you down. It has been several weeks since we visited Firefly Pies and these pictures were still sitting in a post waiting for me to write this post. Not only that, but the Firefly website (the trailer looks nothing like the one on the website which makes me wonder if they've updated it since opening) doesn't have a menu, so I can't even give you exact specs on what pizzas they are, you're just going to have to settle for my best approximation. (Updated 8/24/2013) Please don't let this deter you from getting out and trying this pizza; It is worth your time.

Adventure #52: Enoteca Vespaio

This was one of the more adventurous of our adventures! Come along with me. . .

For this adventure we teamed up with Austin Yankee, a cousin adventurer. Where we explore pizza, she explores wine. This week, we teamed the two up in a South Congress shindig - Enoteca Vespaio. Speaking of South Congress - don't try to get here on a First Thursday when it has been raining. Just don't. The fact that I had a good time on this adventure after the hellish journey to get here is a huge testament to the pizza and our adventuring partner. *end rant*

Adventure #51: Al Forno Pies and Slices

I am always excited when Ian finds a pizzeria in a neighborhood where I thought I knew them all.  Al Forno is at Parmer and McNeil, right next to Little Woodrow's (a pretty nice neighborhood bar/hangout spot).  Unfortunately I did not come away with much of an impression of this place or the pizza; its location is the most memorable thing about Al Forno.

Adventure #50: Via 313

Remember when we visited the "Ok but Forgettable" North by Northwest for Adventure #43? We had special guests with us, Brandon and Zane from Pizza Hunt, another pizza blog. Well, luckily for us, they're out of the blogging business and into the pizza business. Not only are we lucky, but you are too, because their spot has some of the best and most unique pizza in town.

On East Sixth, next to the Violet Crown Social Club, is a small trailer called Via 313, promising Authentic Detroit-Style pizza. Don't know about it? Neither did we. I don't know the specifics, so I'll let the pictures do the talking. What you see below is The Detroiter: cheese and double pepperoni.

Adventure #49: Austin Terrier

I'm going to start with the bad here because I want the last thing that you read to be about how delicious the pizza was. I want you to come away wanting to get out there and try this pizza. I should also note that this place has only been open for two months, so if you're reading this, there is a slight possibility that they were still working out the kinks. However, I would be remiss in the chronicling of this adventure if I did not document what went wrong.
