Backspace

I finally went to Backspace Austin! It’s this great little pizza place right behind Parkside on 6th and San Jacinto. It’s a tiny restaurant and I had tried to go several times before but there was always over an hour wait or our group was too big to be seated. I was thrilled when Caroline Ittner , Meredith Cranch and I finally made a date to go to last week.


I tried to take good pictures but the lighting was dim, perfect for ambiance, however not so perfect for food photography.


For our appetizer, we chose the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella garnished with pears and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It was delicious and we gobbled these up in no time. This appetizer was excellent however if you’re hoping for something more filling I might go with something else as this dish was small.


This was my favorite of the night! Pizza Bianca. Lots and lots of fresh arugula with ricotta, mozzarella, and Romano cheeses.

The crusts on these pizzas are amazing! They are all cooked in a traditional wood-fire oven, which is open to the restaurant so you can see your pizza being made.


This is Peperoni Americano pizza with tomato, mozzarella, salami and basil. This was a hit too!

I definitely suggest you make a reservation, especially if you’re going on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

Hope y’all enjoy this place as much as I did! I will definitely be going back!
