Fireside Pies, the darling of Dallas pizza pies since its first location debuted on Henderson Avenue in 2005, will open its Ft. Worth restaurant, in the West7 mixed use development, on October 20, according to employees.
The menu will be similar to the other Fireside Pies–big salads, creative pizzas, killer desserts–but look for a new style of pizza to debut. It’ll be lighter with a crispier crust. Same dough recipe, I’m told, but the pies will be brushed with olive oil before baking to make them more sturdy. The toppings will be different, too–including a pie with bacon and a fried egg–all selected to prevent the slice from flopping over at the tip when you pick it up.
I’ve also been told that Jimmy’s sausage is on the way out, at least at the FW location; Fireside is going to make their own in-house. Another addition: a steak and roasted chicken cooked in the wood burning oven. I’m betting Patrizio’s and Baileys Prime Plus won’t be scared.
