Although Dough Pizzeria expanded from San Antonio, our location has remained faithful to its mantra of local, seasonal ingredients. Keith Hull, co-owner of the Dallas restaurant, helped build a pizza especially for our neighborhood. The “Preston Hollow” comes topped with caramelized onions, Calabrian chiles and Italian sausage from the local institution, Jimmy’s Food Store. “You won’t find that pizza in San Antonio,” he says. The authentic Neapolitan pizza is certified by the L’Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana in Naples, Italy, which has strict guidelines set by the Italian government. The pizzas are cooked in an 800-degree oven for just 90 seconds. Another hit at Dough is the ooey-gooey burrata caprese — mozzarella stuffed with mascarpone, ricotta, truffle oil and heirloom tomatoes. You can drool as they make it right in front of you at the burrata bar.
