4 Reasons to Love State & Allen’s Gourmet Pizza in Dallas!

State & Allen

We’ll be the first to admit that there are a lot of great pizza places in Dallas. Each brings their own flare to the classic pizza pie, but we’re willing to bet our gourmet pizzas at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar stack up well against just about any competitor.

 

If you haven’t tried the best gourmet pizza in Dallas at State & Allen, here are 4 reasons you’re going to love it:

 

1.   Homemade Red Sauce with Texas Tomatoes

We make our red sauce fresh in-house and we only use fresh, Texas tomatoes. Not only does it just taste better because the tomatoes are so fresh, but using local ingredients feeds into our green initiatives. It’s important to us to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible, and this is just one more way we can do it.

 

2.   Gluten Free Options

Whether it’s a necessity or a dietary preference, State & Allen is happy to offer gluten free options to our guests. Simply tell your server you would like a gluten free pizza crust with your meal, and we’ll make it happen.

 

3.   Plethora of Choices

Choose a gourmet pizza off of our menu, or make your own with whatever ingredients you like. Either way, we can assure you it will be delicious!  Not only do we offer a red sauce, but there are pesto, truffle bechamel, bbq, or garlic oil options too. Layer your choice of toppings on top of whichever sauce you’d like.

 

4.   Available Late Night on the Weekends

Join us on the weekends – Thursday- Saturday night – for late night pizza. Grab drinks, mingle with your friends, and munch on some of the best stone-fired, gourmet pizza in Dallas, Texas!

Anything But Bland: Gourmet Salads at State & Allen

State & Allen

Many people think “salad” and they cringe.

 

We get it.

 

A salad doesn’t really compare to a filet mignon, but if you order a salad at State & Allen, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what you find. And with New Year’s Resolutions fresh on the brain, why not give one of our gourmet Dallas salads a try!

 

Entrée Worthy Options

Here’s the thing: we want you to be able to enjoy our salads as an entrée and not just a side or starter. What that means is that our salads are hearty; chock full of delicious ingredients sure to fill you up – without packing on the calories. Try unique protein offerings like portabello mushroom or shrimp. Or maybe add a creamy avocado. And of course, blackened chicken is always a good idea.

 

Dallas Scratch Kitchen Salads

Part of being a Dallas scratch kitchen means coming up with unique flavor combinations that wow the senses. Sure, we’ve got some familiar favorites, but we love trying new things too. Here are a few of the unique Dallas salads currently on our menu:

 

·      Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna: Perfectly seared rare Ahi Tuna is coupled with freshly chopped Napa cabbage, carrots, radish, cucumbers, jicama, spiced peanuts, and a miso peanut vinaigrette. Crunchy and light, you’ll love this salad!

·      Warm Spinach & Chicken Paillard: Want something to warm you up on a cold North Texas day? Give the warm spinach salad a try! Chicken, wild mushrooms, purple-hulled peas, sun-dried tomatoes, red peppers, goat cheese, and pine nuts are drizzled in warm olive oil and Balsamic vinegar. It’s healthy comfort food for the win!

·      The Original Silver Bowl Salad: By far our most popular salad, it’s hard to resist the delicious tastes of the Silver Bowl Salad! Who wouldn’t love a bed of romaine lettuce piled high with spicy chicken, red bell peppers, orange slices, grapes, bacon, and 2 homemade dressings – Caesar and Balsamic Vinegarette?!
