Star Pizza

It's hard to find excellent pizza in Houston.  I mean, there's some good pizza in a lot of places, but New York and Chicago we are not.  No offense guys.  You know I love Houston!  But, its just tough to find delectable pizza -- New York Style or Chicago.  However, I do think our Star Pizza is on to something.  I do think Star Pizza is pretty dang good.  With two locations in town, both do a great job baking up a pizza pie.

Star Pizza offers more than just pizza -- the menu includes various entree salads, pastas, and sandwiches.  But its the pizza that keeps me coming back.   With both New York/Hand Tossed and Chicago Style Deep Dish (oh, and a Focaccia Pizza, too), my kind of pizza is freshly made within these walls.

First up, The Veggie.  I know, I know, for you meat lovers, a veggie pizza is, well, just, um, wrong.  But, to me, a great veggie pizza hits the nail on the head.  When the veggies are fresh and cooked perfectly, they are a great accompaniment to a perfectly crispy crust, tangy tomato sauce, and melty mozzarella.    Their Veggie includes mushrooms, onions, green pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and sprouts.  Slap all that on a deep dish whole wheat...and .................Yum.  Star Pizza really piles on the veggies and cheese.  The veggies were very crunchy and juicy.  The crust was thick, yet crispy (Large 14": $19.25).

Next, The Margarita.  This time we went with the New York Hand Tossed.  Loaded with roma tomatoes, garlic, basil, cheese, and olive oil, this pizza pie was just as delicious.  The tomatoes were juicy and fresh and the basil was freshly picked (also $19.25 for a 14" Large).

Not only does Star Pizza bake up truly excellent pizza, but the service is top notch, quick, and friendly, too.   The staff truly anticipated our needs.   Don't need a whole pizza?  You can get pizza by the slice for $3.50.
