While it can be hard to stray from the delicious BBQ in Texas, Due Forni offers a nice alternative in the heart of downtown Austin. And, if you simply cannot step away from the brisket there, then Due Forni also has a location Las Vegas (because there are such limited food options there, right?). The thing that makes Due Forni unique is that they actually have two different specialty ovens to create two different types of pizza: Neapolitan and Roman. Neapolitan has a soft crust, while Roman has a thin, crispy one.
I lean more towards Neapolitan-style than the cracker-like crusts, so I ordered the Neapolitan version of their namesake pizza, the Due Forni. The Due Forni has San Marzano tomatoes, Bufala mozzarella, house made sausage, bacon, piquillo peppers, and basil. Not being a fan of any kind of peppers, I just had mine without the piquillo peppers. I thoroughly enjoyed my pizza and was especially impressed with the rich Bufala mozzarella and the sweet sauce.
Due Forni makes some Italian social plates in addition to their pizza. Plus, besides the wine mentioned in their name, they also serve beer and cocktails. Good Neapolitan pizza is not what I associate with Austin, Texas, but Due Forni offers just that.
