One of Austin’s best barbecue spots, La Barbecue, is teaming up with western downtown pizzeria 40 North, for a bunch of barbecue specials. The dishes, which includes two pies and a calzone, will be available from Wednesday, December 12 through Thursday, January 31, 2019 at the 900 West 10th Street pizzeria.
On deck are the meatless spicy pickle pizza, the pulled pork calzone, and the two-sausage pizza with regular and chipotle sausages. The collaboration involves La Barbecue’s LeAnn Mueller and Ali Clem, along with 40 North’s Clint Elmore. Scope out the full menu below.
The barbecue pizza specials will begin with a party with half-priced bubbles from 6 to 9 p.m. on December 12. One dollar from each pizza sold will go towards Austin Pets Alive.
This isn’t the first time La Barbecue has collaborated in pizza. The barbecue joint teamed up with Italian restaurant Juniper and Detroit pizza makers Via 313 on a smoked ham pizza for Tecolote Farm last year. Previous 40 North dish collaborators have included new Mexican restaurant Suerte and chef Philip Speer.
