Where to Find a Proper White Pizza In Houston
It's not just ricotta and mozzarella on the 900 degree oven-fired white pizza at the sibling Coppa restaurants. The cheeses are on it, of course, but so are mounds of fontina, parmesan, and scamorza, a silky-smooth Italian cow's milk cheese. Green olives and oregano make this blistering pie one of the best white pizzas in the city.
Where: Coal Vine's Pizza & Wine Bar
What: White Pie
Dallas import Coal Vine's serves up hand-tossed coal-fired pies with thin and crisp New-York-style crust. Try the white pie, made in true "white-pizza-style" with mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, plus a hint of oregano; or the white special, which adds sliced tomatoes. Having a look at their wine list won't hurt, either.

Where: Brother's Pizzeria
What: Pizza Bianca (White Pizza)
Loyal fans of this no-frills pizzeria recently jumped to the message boards to vote Brother's Pizza in for one of the 5 Most Underrated Restaurants in Houston. Visit one of three locations to enjoy classically delicious, thicker-crust pies like the off-the-menu white pizza, made with mountains of gooey mozzarella and milky ricotta.
What: Le Pizze Bianche w/ Ricotta
International chain Piola will happily adjust any of their authentic Italian pies to your liking. I love the ordering the Tours -- a sauceless pizza made with a mozzarella, spinach, mushroom and bacon -- and adding ricotta. Dollops of the creamy, silky cheese practically melt in your mouth, making each bite pure pizza bliss.
