Since making their stage debut in 1956, Pizza by Marco's thin-crust pizzas and colorful palette of toppings have earned a bevy of awards, including Best Pizza in Dallas-Fort Worth from the readers of Pegasus News in 2010. The menu of specialty and customizable pizzas showcases the pizzeria's rich sauce handcrafted from a Sicilian family recipe of 13 secret spices known only to the founder's son and a network of undercover measuring spoons.
The Augustus pie layers a stoplight-hued medley of spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta ($11.50 for a 10"; $13.50 for a 12"; $15.75 for a 14"), and the Full Moon pales beneath alfredo sauce and four white cheeses ($8.95 for a 10"; $9.95 for a 12"; $10.95 for a 14").
