The first coal oven pizzeria in Houston is turning out some amazing pizza -- if you like the blackened and blistered style of crust that comes from a super-hot oven. As long as they can keep the oven hot, the dough yeasty, and the toppings high in quality and low in quantity, Russo's New York Coal-Fired Pizzeria will have the best pie in Houston.
