Bufalina makes the kind of pizza you just have to tell other people about. The restaurant takes its name from one of the essential ingredients to excellent pizza: buffalo mozzarella, large slices of which cover the base of their pizzas and spread out in the 900 degree wood-fired oven the restaurant uses to cook them. The result is the classic Neapolitan-style pizza, smoky fire-kissed crust and excellent ingredients perfectly melded together. Bufalina’s Fresca is a perfect choice for something special but also simple, especially for blazing Austin summers. The pizza perfectly balances the simplicity of piquant prosciutto and arugula with the soft Buffalo mozzarella and shaves of sharp Grana Padano cheese—finished with a fresh squeeze of lemon. It’s this combination of simplicity with perfect execution that keeps this style of pizza alive and people talking about this Austin pizzeria.
