Smoked meat at a pizza joint?!?!
This isn't a pizza blog, but if you know me, you know I love pizza. Like could-eat-it-every-day love it. Last weekend, I paid my first visit to Pieous, an Austin pizza joint out Highway 290 toward Dripping Springs. Pieous is in the building that used to house Cartwright's Bar-B-Q, and they have the smoker that Cartwright's left behind. They use the smoker to smoke pastrami and Italian sausage. I had pizza (smoked Italian sausage, pepperoni, & spicy onions) and a Caesar salad, but I also got a sample of the smoked pastrami. When I go back, I'm going to order the pastrami sandwich, which is served with yellow mustard on house-made sourdough bread.
