After a brief hiatus, Oak Cliff Pizza re-opened under new ownership and a slightly different name: David’s Oak Cliff Pizza. Neighborhood resident David Rodriguez had worked at the pizzeria for years and decided to buy it. But the no-frills, New York-style pizza hasn’t changed. “The menu has stayed the same,” Rodriguez says. “We make our sauce from scratch. It’s thin crust, but we can make it however you want.” Specialty pizzas include the traditional supreme, known here as the New York Village, and the more gourmet-style prosciutto pizza with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Despite the small seating area, neighbors don’t seem to mind dining in large parties. The menu also features house-made pastas, salads and beautifully crafted calzones.
