DDD Review #5 – Tutta’s Pizza, Dallas TX

DDD Review #5 Tutta’s Pizza  8/11/18

So this rainy Saturday Hubby and I decided to try out another DDD restaurant. He decided on Pizza and we journeyed down I35E.  Located in what appears to be an old warehouse or something in West End it has kept the feel and uniqueness and added everything needed to make it a cool hang out. We ordered a large Durty Dough Pizza. If you are looking for cheap pizza, this is not the place. But oh my! If you are looking for something unique and delicious you really need to try Tutta’s. Smoked pulled pork, chicken, brisket and bacon, chopped serrano peppers, mozzarella and Tutta’s special BBQ sauce. Delicious! It’s a thin doughy crust. My first bite I get a taste of perfectly smoked meat, mozzarella, bacon and little of that serrano. It’s not spicy hot, just good.  Then you notice the mozzarella and the light sauce. Hubby says, “You know what I like about the sauce? It’s not overwhelming so you can still taste all the fun stuff.”  Mmmmmm…and it was LARGE. We brought some home. Bet it doesn’t make it til tomorrow.  🙂
