Before opening his pizzeria, Dough’s owner Doug Horn flew all the way to Naples, Italy, to learn the tricks of pizza-making from the masters. When he went back to San Antonio, he brought along invaluable experience, as well as an original Italian oven. In that oven, he has been baking mouth-watering pizzas since 2007, serving them to the swarms of customers lured in by the terrific selection of pizzas on the menu. The ‘pork love’ pizza, topped with sopressata salami, sausage, pancetta, speck, mozzarella and tomato sauce, and is an undying favorite. Besides the pizzas, Dough also offers an array of Italian culinary highlights as appetizers, ranging from the delicate caprese to the creamy burrata cheese.
