Did you know Sept. 20 is National Pepperoni Pizza Day? We don’t know about you, but at Olympus Katy Ranch, we’ve definitely got pizza on the brain. If you’re looking for a killer slice of ʼza – pepperoni or otherwise – or you just need to take a night off from cooking, try one of these mouthwatering pizzerias in the Katy area.
El Canton Firewood Pizzeria
While you can’t go wrong with a classic pepperoni pizza, El Canton takes things to a whole new level. Many of their specialty pizzas are fusion dishes, mixing the best parts of Italian pizza with Mexican-inspired ingredients. For instance, their Fajita Canton features black beans, queso fresco, and chorizo, among other toppings, while Tiki Chipotle is topped with chipotle chicken, pineapple, and cilantro. A customer favorite is the Luna Verde, which features spinach, cream cheese, and goat cheese, topped with a stunning green spiral of pesto sauce.
This pizzeria is named for its super-hot ovens. They cook all their pizzas at a very high heat for just 2 minutes – which gives them that crispy, delicious crust and the perfect melt on the cheese. Their White Out Pizza is insanely good with its simple toppings of cheese, garlic, and mushrooms. You’ll also want to try their Smoky Pollo with barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, bacon, veggies, and pineapple, and The Philly, which showcases balsamic onions and thinly sliced rib-eye.
Grimaldi’s follows Brooklyn’s traditions in the art of pizza making – which means you know everything will taste amazing. Their Pesto Pizza is a simple yet elegant blend of mozzarella and pesto, while their Prosciutto Arugula Pizza pairs salty and bitter together in perfect harmony. They also offer gluten-free and cauliflower crust options.
And don’t forget to drop by the leasing office on Sept. 20 to celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day with us from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. You can skip cooking, because we’ll have a slice of pizza for you, on the house!
