8 Reasons To Visit The New Cane Rosso At The Star in Frisco

On July 31st, Cane Rosso will open their newest location at The Star in Frisco.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Neapolitan pizza brand, allow me to give you a brief rundown before we start our list of reasons you need to be there.

Since opening the original location in Deep Ellum, Cane Rosso has been on more media channels than I could possibly name, but just for starters they’ve been crowned Best Pizza in Dallas for multiple years by multiple publications, have been featured on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives”,  Eater’s 38 Essential Pizzerias in the Nation, plus many more accolades I’m sure they’d be happy to fill you in on.

Founded by former corporate exec Jay Jerrier, who was inspired by his honeymoon trip to Italy to open a Neapolitan pizza concept, Cane Rosso has grown quickly to 9 locations throughout Texas, and they’ve even ventured into animal rescue via Cane Rosso Rescue.
Cane Rosso serves authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, and salads. The kitchen is led by Naples-native Dino Santonicola,  Executive Chef and Master Pizzaiolo.

Here I leave you 8 reasons to visit the new Cane Rosso at The Star in Frisco:

1. The Star Pizza. This cross between pizza and calzone is found exclusively at the Frisco location. Stuffed with Ricotta and fresh Mozzarella, then topped with heirloom tomatoes, pepperoni, and arugula, you can totally tell your trainer it’s a salad and I won’t tell a soul.

2. The one of a kind Stefano Ferrara-designed pizza oven in the shape of a football helmet. Shipped all the way from Italy, so you know it’s gonna be legit.

3. To try their other new menu items found exclusively at the Star: Cane Rosso’s wings and fried Calzones.

4. If you haven’t been before to Cane Rosso, or if you’re a stickler for an actual printed menu item, you might need to go just to experience The Honey Bastard. Listed on one of my 100 best bites in DFW in 2016 and heck, every year, this not-so-secret off-menu pie offers the perfect level of sass and sweetness to quench my frequent pizza hunger. Seriously. My favorite pizza in life. Bucket list this pizza. Maybe if you promise them you’ll write a nice yelp review they’ll make one in the shape of a star for you too. #mediaperks

5. Bathroom art like you’ve never seen. Talented Dallas artist Clay Stinnett creates masterpieces for all of the CR locations. This one’s taken it to a whole new level.

6. Their sibling dessert hot spot – Cow Tipping Creamery is located right next door. If you aren’t tempted enough by CR’s delicious dessert pizzas, mosey on over to Cow Tipping Creamery for soft serve stackers you simply can’t refuse.

7. Sporty patio views for days. You can see the turf of the Cowboys’ outdoor practice facilities. The ultimate in people watching…

 

8. To see The Star in Frisco if you haven’t yet! Walk around and see all of the exciting things to come, rub elbows with people I’d probably never recognize. Whatever floats your boat. It’s all happening at the Star.

Celebrate Summer at Your Pie Frisco

Your Pie opened in Frisco nearly a year ago, and besides the build your own, quick concept and friendly service, we love that they feature rotating seasonal pies.

Your Pie’s current craft series pizza, the Peach Prosciutto Pie, is a perfectly refreshing slice of summer. Drizzled with a balsamic glaze, the flavors make a beautiful combination that pairs perfectly with a crisp glass of Pinot Grigio.

The dough at Your Pie is hand tossed and cooked in a gas fired brick oven. The pizzas cook in only 4 minutes, and they are brought out hot and fresh to your table. You can choose one of their pre-designed recipes, or build your very own creation.

The original Your Pie opened in Athens, Georgia, in 2009, but the inspiration for the concept began in 2006 when now-founder Drew French was visiting his wife’s family while honeymooning on the island of Ischia, in the gulf of Naples, Italy. They wanted to create a concept like you’d find in Italy, with quality ingredients, hand tossed dough, and a feeling of family in their restaurant.

They’re now expanding Your Pie nationwide and the Frisco location was the second store to open in Texas. Your Pie The Frisco franchise owners are local to Frisco and are neighbors with corporate backgrounds, who enjoy the customer interaction in owning a restaurant in their city. Expect more locations to come soon.
