Dining with the littles can be tough. They don’t want to sit still and they don’t want to have adult conversations, and who can blame them, really? Let the kids be kids at our Featured Family Restaurant of the Week – Austin’s Pizza in Westlake. where they can play outside and eat some high quality pizza.


The Westlake location is a gem for families. There’s a ton of outdoor seating, shaded by massive trees surrounding their playscape. There are tables right next to the playscape and a short fence keeping it all enclosed so you can have some peace of mind while you eat your slice(s) of pizza. If your kids are older and you don’t need to be the helicopter parent anymore, there is a deck off to the side of the playscape with several tables where you can still keep a close eye on the kids, but be far enough away to have some grown up time with your friends and family.


Most Austin families already know how yummy Austin’s Pizza is, but what they may not know, is why it is so delicious.

Austin’s Pizza is serious about the quality of their ingredients. They are dedicated to Austin’s love for keeping it local and get all of their meats from local company, Smoky Denmark, and use a unique spice blend in their sauces crafted especially for them by local company, Southern Style Spices. Fresh veggies are delivered every day, their wings are baked, not fried, and their cheese is from a co-op farm in Wisconsin. Salads are made fresh every day at the store, none of that salad-in-a-bag junk! They even serve a 10″ gluten-free crust which is made especially for them by local company, Smart Flour. These pizzas are prepared in a separate cook station to prevent cross-contamination and ensure that those allergic to gluten can have a delicious and safe pizza.


Pictured above is a 1/2 Californian and 1/2 Farmers’ Market – both were amazing! Besides making the best pizza in town, they are also known as the “pizza roll kings”, and have 4 options available: the Veggie roll, the Pepperoni roll, the Ham n’ Cheese roll and their new Toropedo roll with chicken, jalapeno, mozzarella and cheddar – all served with either ranch or marinara sauce.
