Pizza Motus is bringing light and crispy Roman-style pizzas to West University this summer, thanks to a professional motorcycle racer from Texas who lived much of his life in Italy.
“Motus” means movement in Latin, and sticking true to its name, the fast-casual eatery at 6119 Edloe St. will offer a walk-up window for grab-and-go slices as well as made-to-order pies that can be enjoyed on its patio.
Owner Will Gruy claims that the lighter, crispier Roman-style street pizzas don’t get soggy. “They are optimal for taking home,” he said in a statement. The baking process is key: “Each pizza is baked in a steel baking pan and cut into rectangles. The particular dough levitation and baking process... allows it to retain a crisp, light bite,” he explained. In addition to the thin-crust pizzas, Pizza Motus will offer salads, grain bowls, sandwiches, and Italian ice and other sweets for dessert. It’s also BYOB.
“The Pizza Motus concept takes inspiration from the Roman-style street pizza I grew to love while living there for many years,” said Gruy. “Some dishes are true to their Roman heritage and others have a decidedly Texan twist on them.”
Stay tuned for an official opening date and hours of operation.
