Pizza is one of life’s great pleasures. But if you find yourself slipping into a pizza rut, ordering the same old toppings from the same place time after time, here are some deliciously different pies available in The Woodlands area you might want to try.
Pizza Tonight: The Cuban
Pizza Tonight is a small, carryout-only pizzeria tucked away in a little strip mall on Glen Loch Drive, less than 10 minutes from Olympus Sierra Pines. Those in the know rave about its hand-tossed, thin crust pies, so if you haven’t had one yet, now is your chance. For something a little out of the ordinary, try the Cuban with cilantro pesto, red onion, sliced Roma tomatoes, seasoned black beans, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.
Sorriso Modern Italian Kitchen: Gourmet Steak Pizza
From a prime spot overlooking the Waterway at the Westin hotel, Sorriso Modern Italian Kitchen serves a variety of Italian fare, including traditional Neapolitan pizza cooked in a brick oven to produce a perfectly charred crust. The Gourmet Steak Pizza lives up to its name, decadently topped with dry aged ribeye steak, mozzarella, mushrooms, arugula, bresaola (an aged, salted beef), and truffle cream sauce. Currently, you can dine in, use their curbside to-go service, or get it delivered via GrubHub.
RC’s NYC Pizza & Pasta: California Pie
Just a mile or so west on Sawdust road, RC’s NYC Pizza & Pasta is a local favorite, serving up authentic New York-style pizza. Try their award-winning California Pie with spinach, zesty Italian sausage, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese. You can dine in or carry out, and can order ahead online or by phone so your pie will be ready when you arrive.
Crust Pizza Co.: Wyatt’s Barbecue Chicken
Crust Pizza Co. is known for its Chicago-style thin crust pizza (not a typo!) and fresh ingredients. While there are many delicious gourmet offerings on their menu, our pick is Wyatt’s Barbecue Chicken, topped with sweet and smoky barbecue sauce, chicken breast, crispy bacon, red onion, cheddar, smoked mozzarella, and fresh cilantro. There are several Crust locations in the area, but the closest to Olympus Sierra Pines is the Panther Creek Drive spot, which offers online ordering and dine-in or carryout options.
