Once You Have BackDraft Pizza, You'll Definitely Be Back

BackDraft Pizzeria is a food truck tucked into a small trailer park off of Highway 620 in Lakeway. While it doesn't look like much from the street, it certainly ranks as one of the best pizza options in town with the reviews to prove it.

The food truck specializes in several hand-crafted items. For starters, their dough is made from Italian flour and cooked in an 800 degree oven. Next, they top the thin crust pizzas with house-made sauce made from San Marzano tomatoes. As if that wasn't compelling enough, they hand-stretch their own mozzarella from Wisconsin cheese curd AND offer house-made Italian sausage in both sweet and spicy varieties. 

In order to take advantage of their specialities, we selected the Shrooms to the Moon, with sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions and sausage. The Carni would also be a good selection, with pepperoni, sausage and Canadian bacon. The 12" pizza was the perfect sharing portion, and at just $12, it's also a cheap date night! We loved the toppings on our pie but would also consider building our own next time - perhaps with salami or black olives.

Since we were sharing a pie, we also opted to sample the breadsticks and, dare I say, I liked them even more than the pizza? The breadsticks are topped with a healthy drizzle of olive oil, parmesan and salt, along with a side of red sauce. I basically inhaled a plate of bread.

Since dough seems to be their thing, BackDraft even offers a unique spin on Saturday breakfast - waffles! From 9-11am on Saturday mornings, you can try their specialty waffles with toppings like strawberry, honey peanut butter, and whipped cream. 

An added bonus - the trailer is in a charming food truck setting, and they even have games and decorative succulents scattered around the picnic tables. Plus, you can BYOB!

Great outdoor BYO setting!

I'm not sure whether my return visit will be for more pizza and breadsticks or to sample the delicious waffles, but I know I'll be back to BackDraft.
