Although this restaurant serves the Cypress Waters crowd during lunch, a line starts to form at 11:30, there is not much you can do to speed up the pizza process, one prep guy goes through the motions and creates it for you @ 2 minutes per order plus oven time. Give yourself 1/2 hour to eat here and you'll be fine, just don't come in a hurry and expect food to be ready unless you order ahead.

I like wood fire pizza but prefer not to have too much char. This was the best wood fire pizza I've eaten. It had very little chat but rest assured if you like char they will give it to you, just ask. I opted to build my own with pepperoni and marinara sauce. The sauce is flavorful and not just a simple tomato marinara. They are super generous with the cheese and the pepperoni has a nice little spice. The pizzas are larger than expected since these are for individual entries. The staff and owner are really nice and customer service oriented.

Being Italian, I know something about pizza and pizza crust! I have to admit that their pizza crust is one of the best around and cooked in a wood fired oven, you just can't beat that!

I really enjoyed the fare here. Good product, great service, friendly staff.
If you like wood fired pizza, and know what that is, you'll enjoy this place.
If you don't know what that is, but you like pizza (so....you're a human right?) you should try this place.

Crust is flimsy and mushy in the middle. Like watery. Outter crust slightly burned, and veggies undercooked. Lacking flavor and I ordered a supreme. Fountain Diet Coke does not taste like Diet Coke.

Texas is definitely lacking good pizza. Been here 5 years now and still have found nothing resembling the pizza in the north. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE Texas, but the pizza has much to be desired. This place is worse than the avg TX pizza.

Hello Logan,

We sincerely apologize about your experience - all our pizzas are made from scratch using dough prepared fresh at the store daily. Our pizzas are thin crust with the pizza being cooked for around 90 seconds in our oven which operates at 800F. We request you to give us another chance - please email us at persona.irving@mkonnekt.com and we will send you a gift certificate for you to use.

We hope to hear back from you soon.
Best,
Persona Irving Team
