This past weekend I was able to throw a “Just because” party with the ones I love. One of my reasons for creating Brunch & Conversation, writing about food and food related experiences is because I cherish and enjoy the things that bring me closer to the ones I care about. Food and drink is very well known for bringing people together.
So when Austin’s Pizza invited me to sample their pizzas(now available at HEB), I knew just how to do it. I made a grocery run to my local H-E-B for the pizzas, and a few other items to create my oh so delicious Sangria(I’m not biased, ask the guests). The great thing about hosting people over is that you pretty much set the rules. In my culture and I’m sure other cultures, when visiting someone, especially if they’re feeding you…It is common courtesy to bring something, like a drink.
In making the rules for your party, you have the option of having your guests participate, by allowing them to bring something in addition to what you will already have available. . . The more the merrier, right? I made my world famous Sangria, you can find the recipe here, and also took a trip down to Party City for my earth friendly cups and plates( made from plants) and the gold papered straws to add a little excitement to the cups.
Austin’s favorite delivery pizza, Austin’s Pizza was established in 1999 in a old gas station at 12th street and West Ave in Austin. It’s grown to have 13 locations in Austin and has consistently been voted one of the city’s favorite pizzas. They’re known for their preservative-free pizzas made with fresh sauce, hand-chopped toppings, and 100% real whole-milk mozzarella.
The frozen pizza lime will feature classic Pepperoni, and 3 of their most popular pies, named after well known streets in Austin.
Brazos – Canadian bacon, pepperoni, onions, green peppers, jalapeños and feta cheese
Downtown Special – Pepperoni, sausage, black olives and mushrooms
MoPac – Canadian bacon, pepperoni, sausage, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and olives
The pizzas are thin crusted and I found them to taste better than most frozen pizzas. I always opt for thin crusts especially when it’s a frozen pizza. The crust cooks to a crisp and is thin enough to enjoy and taste the flavors of the pizza. I enjoyed the Brazos the most, because well spicy, duh! But honestly, the feta cheese and jalapeños come to life in every bite.
Here’s your chance to try the pizza out for yourself, Austin’s Pizza is giving 2 Pizza loving foodies and chance to try the pizzas at a discounted rate. Must be a resident of Houston to apply. Good luck!
