It's well deserved. Some of the best pies I've had!
Pizza is not bread.

I agree it is well deserved.  I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with the Hunt brothers at Craig's Pizza Summit.

Now The Hunt brothers are going for Bar Pies.  They had a pop-up pizza night at Bufalena last night and were nice enough to invite my wife and I.  It was, as expected, great pizza, and a nice crowd.  Bufalina prepared the salad and a meat/cheese plate and the Hunt brothers cooked the pizzas in the WFO (at 700ish degrees) on pans.  Sorry for the crappy pics, but they are all I have.  This will be one of the styles they will make at their brick and mortar location.

Nice cheesey edges and an excellent crust, no bones on those plates.  One is Vermont smoked pepperoni, the other is mild gouda, black forest ham, maple syrup (no red sauce) (from Paulie G, the Monte Christo).  The wife and I have an aversion to maple, so I asked that they just wave the bottle over the pie, and they got it just right, just a hint of the maple.  This was a great pie last night AND this morning when I finished it for breakfast.

I wonder if they are using their Detroit dough but handling it in a different manner? Looks great!

Very nice, TScarborough! I went to the first bar pie pop-up at Bufalina last month. Very impressed with the quality of the pizza. Different than I expected (I thought it would be a more cracker-like crust, based only on photos), but I really liked it a lot. I think they will do just fine with these. They keep bringing the missing styles to Austin! My photo attached.

It is a different dough, Bob.

I missed both pop ups at Bufalina (another great place for pies in Austin)! I was hoping to make it, but we had stuff going on for both of them. The bar pies look fantastic and I can't wait til they open the brick-n-mortar place in South Austin.


oh... and by the way, Hi, y'all! :)

Thanks Tom, Jeff A, and Ron for posting about the bar pie pop-ups at Bufalina by the Hunt brothers.  The pies looks delicious!  Wish I live closer to where you all live.
