Dough Boys is the new wood-fired Neapolitan pizza truck in Arbor Food Park in East Austin. The pizza dough is made with a hearty locally-sourced flour from Barton Springs Mill, and it’s fermented for 36 hours for a chewy, puffy, and tangy crust. The tight, short menu of 12-inch pizzas includes the Italian Vato, with red sauce, salami, and hatch green chiles, and the Green-Go, with garlic cream, smoked mozzarella, spicy pork sausage, a “secret” green sauce. There’s also a dessert “pizza” featuring caramelized espresso glaze and a Fernet-infused mascarpone.
