Fort Worth's Swiss Pastry Shop announced this afternoon on its Facebook page that Cane Rosso, Dallas' buzzworthy wood-fired pizza palace, will have a regular gig from 5 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at the pastry shop, 3936 W. Vickery Blvd. in Fort Worth. The first stop is scheduled for July 20 and will be BYOB.
"We are very proud to host Dallas' most talked about Neopolitan Pizzeria," Swiss Pastry's Hans Peter Muller wrote in a Facebook post. "I'm in love with this pizza and you will be too." (As for me, a Cane Rosso pizza was my pick in DFW.com's Favorite Meals of 2011.)
Cane Rosso's mobile pizza oven already does a weekly stop on Thursdays at Fort Worth's Times Ten Cellars and Cane Rosso's Jay Jerrier says that will continue. But the Swiss Pastry Shop stops will be a little different -- more of a pop-up restaurant.
"We have a new mobile oven -- it is actually enclosed in a trailer," Jerrier said in a Facebook e-mail exchange. "We're bringing it to the City[of Dallas] on 7/18 to get approved as a 'food truck'. If that goes well, we'll use it as the oven to make pizzas for the pop-up." The menu will be slightly larger than the menu at Times Ten, Jerrier says.
Jerrier, whose Deep Ellum spot has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and has won awards for its Neapolitan pizzas, has been wanting to expand to Fort Worth, and this is a step in that direction. "We have had a hard time finding a good permanent brick and mortar spot in FW, so we are going to do this til we find the right spot," Jerrier says. "We love Hans and his family and they close early every day - so this made a lot of sense. We hope to bring a new batch of customers to Swiss Pastry to taste his amazing desserts."
