And, you must try the pastrami...it's incredible.

I know I've seen bits and pieces of the stuff that's come out of the smoker side of your establishment, but I'd really enjoy seeing some more in-depth images of the Pastrami and such! I'll check on Yelp.

Best of Luck!

Made it out here last weekend and wholeheartedly agree with previous posters: excellent.  Perfect margherita and the pastrami was indeed stellar.  Josh is doing things right.  Restaurant itself has a great vibe.  Lots of hard work and admirable results.  Looking forward to my next visit.  If you live anywhere near Austin, it's worth the trek.

FINALLY... I was able to make my way to Austin and try out Pieous. I had planned on visiting since the beginning of 2013, so my expectations were very high by the time I finally made it there on a very busy Saturday afternoon.

Margarita: Perfect. Months of waiting finally paid off with this simple, yet complex pizza. Topped with their homemade mozzarella, cannot say I wasn't impressed.

The Rocket: Arugula/Prosciutto (amongst many other ingredients I don't recall) was probably the best thing I've ever eaten. So perfectly balanced & delicious, definitly added to my regular rotation.


Pastrami: Unfortunately I didn't have enough time in Austin, or room in my stomach to eat a full pastrami sandwhich along with the pizza. I asked for a sample because I knew I needed to try it, and they were kind enough to give one on the house. I generally am suspicious of people who are the self-proclaimed "best" of something, but that pastrami is without a doubt the best I've ever had in my life. I only wish I had two stomaches so I could enjoy a full pastrami meal that day, and without a doubt I will get it next time I'm in Austin.


Goose Island Honkers Ale: My go-to craft beer when in the mood. Pieous can't take credit for making this beer, but they do serve it and I'm thankful. Went really well with the pizza.



Other notes: I went with family that lives in Austin and they had not yet heard about Pieous. I heard over and over again for the rest of the day what a great find this was, and how Austin didn't have any "great" pizza restaurants, until now. It's probably notable that these are people who haven't a clue what Neapolitan or sub 90 second pizza really is, but everyone could agree it was just excellent pizza.


A+ Josh. I really envy your story, your passion and your follow through. Good luck in your future.

JD, thanks for coming out. I'm humbled and thrilled by your kind words. I only wish you had introduced yourself to me. Next time, please do.

I'm thrilled by PIEOUS, still having the time of my life, still mixing 100 lbs of flour by hand and improving my skills everyday. It's great introducing people to neo pies. Most love it, some say its "soggy" and dont get it, but for them, let them eat pastrami and sourdough bread!

I stopped in today for lunch.  I had the House on Fire, and it was spectacular.  Josh and the crew have gotten even better if that is possible.

I'm jealous. I make it to Austin once or twice a year at best, and this year we made it there between Christmas & New Years and Pieous was closed for the week.

Can't wait to go back.
Josh
