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.

There used to be a pizza joint in Mineral Wells back in the 80s that served BBQ pizza. They used small pieces of brisket and BBQ sauce (instead of tomato sauce) with cheese and it was pretty good.

I figure with the current BBQ craze it is time for that to come back around again.
