Just in time SXSW festivities kicking off this weekend here in Austin, Salvation Pizza has recently opened its new location on Rainey Street, with their unique New Haven-style pizza that has made them so popular since 2006.
Rainey Street provides the perfect venue for an Austin original like Salvation Pizza. In a very short time frame, the neighborhood has seen many changes with the addition of high rise condos and new residents moving to our seemingly overcrowded city. Rainey St. has become busier than ever, filled with partiers and night owls hoping from bar to bar for sustenance to fill their bellies after kicking back a few cocktails and beer. What’s better than hot pizza on an exciting night downtown?
Originally from New England, Michael Dinsmore was raised with an appreciation for authenticity and tradition. His introduction to the technical aspects of New Haven style pizza, ignited a passion for sharing the methods, quality and flavors when he conceptualized Salvation Pizza in 2006. Salvation Pizza, Austin’s only New Haven style pizzeria makes all elements of their pizza from scratch in strict adherence to classic technique. Pizzas are cooked on a custom-fitted granite stone, using only traditional wooden peels in a gas-fired oven. Dinsmore’s vision for Salvation Pizza is deeply rooted in his immersion in a culinary world striving to preserve tradition through consistency and quality techniques.
“We are thrilled to bring a new Salvation Pizza location to the downtown Austin area,” said Michael Dinsmore, owner of Salvation Pizza. “Since opening our doors eight years ago, we have hoped to grow as a company. As we take the first step in that direction, we could not be happier than to move into such a lively neighborhood. We are also pleased that we can now offer delivery to the Capital, Downtown, and East and South Austin. “
The restaurant features an expanded menu, a full bar with a specialty cocktail menu. Additionally, the restaurant will feature several TVs, outdoor dining for patrons, and daily food and drink specials. Salvation Pizza is open daily for lunch and dinner, takeout, and all-day delivery.
