The pizzas are baked in a coal oven, just like at the namesake Grimaldi's in Brooklyn. The fresh cheese, imported olive oil, homemade Italian sausage and outstanding red sauce are all from the same sources that supply the Brooklyn restaurant. With stellar toppings and crispy coal oven crust, Grimaldi's serves one of Houston's very best pizzas.
