Every season is a booming pizza one for Austin. There are pizzeria newcomers a plenty to the city. In that vein, here are Austin’s hottest new pizza spots, ranging from out-of-towners converging on the city, local blood opening their own places, to chains marking Texas notches, all within the past year.

That means out-of-town imports like Nashville’s DeSano and Elgin’s Aviator, and New York City-based Neapolitan Express truck. Then there’s Apis’ casual Pizzeria Sorellina out in Spicewood, vegan and vegetarian takes from Li’l Nonna’s, Dallas delivery spot I Fratelli, among others.
