Consider yourself lucky if you live within delivery distance of an acceptable pizza place. Pizza Hut doesn’t count and Papa Johns isn’t quite good enough. Piggie Pies, however, is.
Having just moved within the three-mile radius of Piggie Pies’ delivery area, I’m fortunate to have a cheese-covered pie at such a convenience.
While the mozzarella cheese coats whatever toppings the pizza has for the night, the sauce doesn’t have a chance of being hidden. Boasting garlic and oregano in every red bite, the flavor overtakes whatever taste the bread might have.
Lacking in originality, the restaurant’s website is proud of its “fresh toppings,” but nothing that has made its way on a pie has proven that the words are a lie. Veggies are crisp and meats are flavorful–the pepperoni is soft with a kick and the sausage is authentic enough when covered with cheese.
The menu also has a list of pasta that’s dense enough to find something worthy, with the cream-based sauces proving to be the best. The red sauce is acceptable and the meatballs aren’t the worst for delivery options.
The chicken Alfredo has a sauce thick and deserving of its name, unlike the runny, savorless imitations around Dallas. The carbonara can fill one up after a few bites: the Alfredo in this is overpowered with salt by the bacon and ham that’s tossed with sautéed onion, tomato and pasta.
This isn’t the best pizza I’ve tasted in Dallas. If I lived closer to Fireside Pies, I might opt for take-out over delivery. As that’s not the case, delivery will do; and with Piggie Pies, it will do just fine.
