Salam/hey guys! Today I will be reviewing another pizza restaurant: Texas Pizza. They have two locations. One on Addicks Clodine Rd, and one on Richmond Ave. This once reviews the Richmond location. Now this is not your normal review. For the first time ever, I am reviewing catering. This may also be my only catering review. Sheikh Waleed Basyouni, a speaker here in Houston, was giving a lecture at UH. Now I normally do not do catering reviews because the quality of catering is usually different than the quality of the food served in the restaurant. This is one exception because this restaurant does not serve pizza by the slice, unlike Crespo. And the smallest pizza, the 8 inch one, is too big for me. I know there are sandwiches available at the restaurant, but since it is a pizza place, the emphasis is usually on the pizza. So before the lecture started, I grabbed a bite.

Let The Experience Begin!
Well I didn't go to the restaurant, so there is nothing about the place. If I go to the actual place, then I can comment on what the restaurant was like.

Let's Eat!
So the options today were chicken pizza and beef pizza. There was also cheese pizza for those who wanted it. To drink, I just drank water.

Original location:
Now here is something I don't get. If the original location can serve halal beef pepperoni and halal turkey ham, then why can't the Richmond location have it? People would normally expect the restaurant to have the same options as the flagship location has.

Beef Pizza on the left and Chicken Pizza on the right

The Verdict:
The pizza was good, but not as good as Crespo. It was definitely hot, but not as flavorful as Crespo. The crust was a bit hard also. Overall, one thumb up.
There is nothing to do with service as the person delivered the pizza then left off.

To conclude what has been the shortest review yet, Texas Pizza is a good place to go if you want a specific size. They come in 10 inches, 12 inches, 14 inches, 16 inches, and 18 inches, unlike Crespo that has only 12 inches or 16 inches. Also, here is cheaper than Crespo. But if you want the best tasting pizza in Houston, then I would suggest you pay those extra bucks for Crespo.

Grading: Since there is no service, it will be omitted in the grading
Food: 8/10
Overall: 8/10 = 80% (B)
Pricing: $$ out of $$$$
