Salvation Pizza specializes in New Haven–style pies, which are renowned for their thin, hand-pounded crusts and distinctive crunch. This time-tested East Coast approach has made Salvation a popular stop in Austin, especially its primary location in the Hyde Park neighborhood. There, along the neighborhood's tree-line streets, Salvation's red-house restaurant sticks out like a snowman at a Longhorns game. Whether you visit that spot or one of Salvation's other laid-back locations, here are some menu items you might want to try:
- Pizza: Ten specialty pizzas anchor Salvation's menu, including the #1, a white pie topped with fresh basil, garlic, and sliced roma tomatoes.
- Pizza (again): You can also customize your own 14" or 18" pie with nearly 30 different toppings, from bacon and eggplant to pineapple and shrimp.
- Calzone: Vegetarians clamor for the option loaded with baby spinach, sautéed mushrooms, fresh garlic, and ricotta cheese.
- Sandwich: Salvation's take on the classic meatball sub features handmade meatballs, housemade marinara, and asiago cheese.
