At Pie Tap, the Bloody Marys Are Strong — And Garnished With an Actual Slice of Pizza

Dallas’s newest pizza concept, which opened its second location recently on Henderson, seems to do just about everything well. Not to be overshadowed by the delicious pizzas and pastas, the bar program offers some great options thanks to a menu created by Black Swan Saloon’s Gabe Sanchez.

The menu features drinks from their signature Frozen Ripsaw to classic cocktails like a Sazerac, all made well and priced reasonably. Their bloody mary seems pretty standard until you get an eyeful of the garnish, which includes a full slice of cheese pizza. There’s a damn slice of pizza on the drink, y’all. The bloody itself is surprisingly peppery thanks to the house-infused peppered vodka.

You can make it for yourself at home using this recipe, or you can head to Pie Tap’s Design District or Henderson Avenue locations to treat yourself to a few slices of breakfast pizza.
