You’ll never get bored with options at Southside Flying Pizza. The Austin pizza joint opened its third location on East Cesar Chavez in 2015 and has quickly become part of the neighborhood. Pick up a pie on your way home, or sit and have one of their daily lunch specials. In fact, plan to stick around because this fall, they’ll add an old-school arcade room. The classic pizzeria setting feels familiar, but the menu is updated with hand-tossed, scratch-made dough and fresh toppings, and the combinations are pure Austin. From classic flavors to signature pies like The Eastsider (Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Sausage, Black Olives, Serrano Peppers, and Pineapple), or The ACL (bacon, spinach, garlic, and tomatoes) and the intimidating Double Dragon—a combination of prosciutto, beef, and chicken, finished with jalapenos and Cholula hot sauce, the possibilities are endless.
