The wait is finally, blessedly, over — Tiny Champions, the much-anticipated new pizzeria from the team behind EaDo favorite Nancy’s Hustle, officially opens its doors today.

The restaurant announced that it would begin taking reservations via booking platform Resy in an Instagram post on Thursday night. As previously reported by Eater, Tiny Champions occupies the space at 2716 McKinney Street, and will serve up a menu of pizza that’s leavened using natural fermentation methods. Ice cream by the scoop, natural wines, and pasta, will also be on the menu.

The restaurant takes its name from the teensy microbes, or “tiny champions,” that make essentials like bread and wine possible. Via its Instagram, Tiny Champions has been teasing the dishes that will be on offer, like an anchovy pizza topped with shaved garlic, salsa verde, and red sauce, and spicy squid radiatore pasta with octopus.

Reservations for Tiny Champions are now open, and they’re going fast.
