Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2017 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

If you scoff at the idea of eggs as a pizza topping, you clearly have yet to try Pie Tap Pizza Workshop's delectable mushroom pizza.

The Dallas pizzeria is known for its meticulously housemade dough and for its delivery — you can get both pizza and beer or wine delivered, which makes us wonder why every pizza place on earth hasn't caught on to this genius idea. But it should also become famous for convincing us that a sunny side up egg could be the world's greatest pizza topping.

The mushroom pizza ($15) comes topped with caramelized onion, bacon, mushrooms and a local farm egg that oozes a beautiful yolky sauce, giving this pizza an indulgent touch. If you're not having it delivered with a six-pack, don't skip the fresh grated parmesan sprinkled liberally over every slice.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
