It's National Pizza Day and we're celebrating at Dovetail in South Austin
AUSTIN, Texas - It's National Pizza Day and we're celebrating with a new spot off South First in Bouldin Creek.
Dovetail is a neighborhood restaurant offering nostalgic, family-friendly pizzas, salads, pastas, and laid back drinks.
It was created by industry friends behind notable concepts like Salt & Time, Lenoir, Rosen’s Bagels, and more.
Starting with the sauce, the ingredients speak for themselves. The pizzas feature Bianco DiNapoli tomatoes and toppings from Salt & Time.
The pizza style falls between Neapolitan and NY style with a slow fermentation dough. They also feature a unique, oblong shape.
Unlike traditional shredded Parmesan or red pepper flake to sprinkle atop, Dovetail offers guests a housemade chile crisp and a green (herb, vinegar, oil) sauces for a finishing drizzle.

The menu also features shared items like frybread with smoked eggplant, corn fried calamari, and baked ricotta with butternut squash chutney, and garlic bread.
The beverage menu features a selection of un-fussy and food-friendly options, making it a great spot to grab a drink after work or hang with a draft negroni at the bar.

In addition to staple Italian leaning classics and seasonally-inspired cocktails, the menu leans into lower ABV offerings including spritzes so you can enjoy a few.
