What I Ate: October 9, 2009 (Southside Flying Pizza)

Dinner: Tina and I headed over to South Congress to try eating at Vespaio Enoteca again (tonight was pretty chilly and Tina was wearing long pants so we thought the change of mosquitoes was minimized). However, they were packed, so we walked up and down South Congress trying to decide where to eat. Finally, we decided on Southside Flying Pizza (2206 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 442-4246‎) which received a good review from the Fearless Critic. Usually, we agree with the Fearless Critic, but there are some times where they're a bit off. This is one of those times - the pizza was good, but not as good as they made it sound.

We ordered a half Southsider (chopped pepperoni, canadian bacon, sausage, red onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms) and half Margherita Pizza (Roma tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, romano and mozzarella cheeses). The Fearless Critic review compared Southside Flying Pizza directly to Home Slice Pizza (futher north on South Congress) and pointed out that the crust was more flavorful at Southside. This was NOT the case for us. We found the crust undersalted and not worth eating with out a bowl of marinara sauce for dipping. The portions of the pizza that were topped were fine - the margherita had a decent amount of garlic flavor which makes up for the fact that there was a lot of shredded mozzarella and no sliced mozzarella.

The Southsider was a combination pizza not worth writing home about either. It was decent, but nothing special.

Lunch: Tina made an eggplant with ground pork dish that we ate over white rice.
