TS & Ronzo - maybe we could all get together for a meetup down at Via 313 sometime in the future?  I travel quite a bit for work but it would great to meet some fellow pizza lovers here in Austin at some point.

Tom, I think the word you're looking for is annoying :)

I sincerely hope Brandon approaches Detroit style pizza a lot more seriously than NY, because most of that video had me cringing.

From the moment you saw the KABF...    :-D

Well, I actually did make it by last week but left town the next morning and haven't had a chance to post.

Actually, my girlfriend swung by and picked up a couple.  And then we reheated them several hours later.  So not ideal eating conditions.  That said, they were great.  While this was my first Detroit-style pie, apart from those I've attempted in my own kitchen (after trying to source a steel blue pan), I've had a ton of Sicilian / Grandma-style pies, and these compare very well to the best versions (Best Pizza, Adrienne's).  Well-proportioned (important when it comes to pan dough), well cooked, and well seasoned.  It's obvious that these guys are paying attention and doing things right, and to me that's worth much more than sticking to some formula for the sake of authenticity.

I hope to swing by in person sometime soon.

For the record, I haven't watched the pizza episode yet, but I'm a big fan of Hilah's videos.  She's fun, and I'm generally a fan of anything that encourages folks to cook.

Anyway, a welcome addition to Austin and a great addition to the east side.

Someday I will take a picture but so far they have never lasted long enough.  I saved a 1/4 for breakfast and it was great reheated too.  I had the meatball this time, and endorse it.  It was good talking to you guys, stay warm in there tonight.

Another great pie last night.  They were busy, busy at Happy Hour, and I didn't hear anything but compliments from their customers.  I took a non-pizza friend who had never heard of Detroit style and he will certainly be back.  And I did take pictures, but my camera must have been drunker than me.  This is the BEST, so you can imagine how bad the others were.

You should, Craig, anytime.  We can do the Austin pizza tour, it is pretty short:  Home slice, East Side Pies and Via313 pretty much covers it so far as I am concerned.  Of course I am not adverse to firing the WFO on short notice either.

For Austin proper, add House and Little Deli to that list.

Craig, bring yourself... and I'll bring the beer for all of us.

I stopped by for my fix tonight and under death threats from the wife brought her home a sausage and onion pie.  Being the genius I am, I had a slice at the trailer, because this one evaporated before I could do anything but steal a chunk of sausage.

I hung around for a while tonight and chatted up the clientele. Only one group was from Detroit, and they called "Buddy's" after trying it.  None of the other crowd had ever heard of Detroit Style, but they were pretty insistent that it was Damn Good Food, pizza or not. 

The wife now makes sure I bring her a pizza and it really worries me when she says, "but I like your pizza Too!".

Hey dudes!

I just want to say that Via 313 is f*cking awesome Detroit style pizza. And I really applaud Brandon for coming on my innernet cookin' show and teaching people how to make pizza  - the most basic kind of pizza - at home. With a home oven and all that shitzz. It really was an awesome pizza. The guys at 313 totally know what they're doing.

Also, thanks Ronzo for posting the link. Our show is intentionally made for people who didn't grow up cooking.
