The last day of school for Dallas Independent School District falls on Wednesday, May 29th (today), which means that thousands of kids will be pouring out of schools looking for something fun to do. Parents with school-age children already know this. But what they probably don’t know is that Dallas’s favorite pizza joint is celebrating the last day of school–and the unofficial start to summer–by offering FREE pizza to straight A students.
That’s right, May 29 through June 2, parents can bring their grade Kindergarten-5th grade kids to Greenville Avenue Pizza Company’s Peavy Road location with report cards in hand. Anyone who received straight As will get a free slice of one-topping pizza. It’s a simple and delicious way for parents to honor their hard-working children. And, let’s be honest: it’s also a great excuse for the family to get together for some pizza.

A bit of crudité and side of house-made blue cheese dressing is perfect. Some have elevated this combination, others take on an interesting ethnic twist. Let’s explore the better examples in the Dallas area. Continue reading
Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to stop eating turkey. In fact, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company would argue the opposite—and then they’d partner with one of Dallas’s best chefs to put some turkey on a pizza.
Created by Chef Kent Rathbun, the Wild Turkey Pizza is topped with One90 smoked turkey, gruyére cheese, Alfredo sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, spinach and prosciutto, and it’s served with a side cranberry sauce. It tastes like a delicious holiday plate, but in this case, the plate is a pizza—and therefore better. Continue reading
