A thank you to SPIN! Pizza for hosting our DMB Team for a dinner in order to review their restaurant. All opinions are 100% our own!
As cliche as it sounds, this big Italian family loves our pizzerias! Having eaten pizza in Italy, New York and Chicago – we tend to be very particular about our pies. One of our favorite things to do with my step-kids is hit up our favorite pizza places and try new ones!
So when I got the chance to review SPIN! Pizza in Richardson, I jumped at it for so many reasons. Richardson is the perfect halfway point for us and the big kids. And this fire-roasted pizza place, known for it’s Margherita pizza (my fav) and gorgeous architecture also promised to cater to our diet restrictions (Gluten-free pizza? Thank you SPIN!)
With our big family of 6, I can’t tell you how great it was to walk in and be able to order immediately (4 hungry kids do not like to wait). But then we were able to sit down and still get full service at the table! Which is such a treat for mom and dad trying to relax and just enjoy come family time. It really is the best of both ‘fast food’ and ‘casual dining’ worlds!
The selection was amazing – traditional thin-and-bubbly crust, rustic whole wheat, gluten-free pizzas, appetizers, soups, salads, panini and Italian deli sandwiches, and gelato ice creams!
We ordered 2 pizzas and 2 (delicious) salads, because we had to save room for the (amazing) gelato. The gluten-free pizza crust was impressive with it’s flavor and texture. But the even bigger hit were the fire-roasted toppings, with options like mushrooms, caramelized onions, artichokes, capers, pecans, pineapples, pine nuts and pancetta!
Our traditional Margherita pizza was also perfect. Maybe because SPIN!’s pizza dough is made fresh every day using several types of flour, including one specially imported from Italy! This Italian family approves!!
To wash down the delicious pizza, I had a hard time deciding between incredibly affordable wines, homemade white, red and blood orange sangria, and the local beer on tap. I finally picked the red sangria and my husband got the blood orange, and they were both delicious! We may have had more then one. So worth it!
It’s really no wonder SPIN! is the winner of a raft of awards, has been named one of the “Rest of the 101 Best Restaurants” in the nation by top foodie website TheDailyMeal.com, has had it’s Margherita Pizza crowned one of the nation’s best dishes of the year by a trade magazine, and has won Best of Show at the Mid America Design Awards for it’s gorgeous architecture. It’s ranked number one by Zagat among Kansas City area pizza restaurants, and has been awarded “best pizza” by numerous publications in it’s hometown, where it also was honored for the city’s best gluten-free menu.
And since I’m sure you are dying to try it out now, you’ll be happy to hear about the upcoming promotions – the Tour de SPIN! for February (the highlighted pizza they do every month) is the famous Margherita pizza ($11.45), add any toppings for just $1 each! (I recommend mushrooms and pine nuts – delizioso!)
