Bud & Alley's Pizza Bar & Trattoria
The chef-driven menu at Bud and Alley’s Pizza Bar and Trattoria shows a passion for good food, good people and good times. From traditional cooking techniques like the mixing of the dough and maintaining the proper flame in the wood-fired oven, to the handmade mozzarella, Pizza Bar proves that good food is all in the details.
Pizza Bar opened in 2009 to rave reviews, and it’s no wonder. Owner Dave Rauschkolb and his wife Carol, along with their friends, architect Leo Casas and wife Tara, spent weeks traveling through Italy researching pizzerias before designing and building Pizza Bar.
The result is a menu that features more than a dozen different red and white pizza pie offerings. Each 11-inch wood fired pizza is made to order and topped with fresh local produce, along with imported meats and cheeses for the most authentic taste.
Chef Phil McDonald draws inspiration from the Gulf of Mexico, local farms, his customers’ tastes, and the five senses. Both Wood Fired Olives and Fried Brussels Sprouts with hazelnuts, pancetta, chili flakes, and herbs make for savory snacks while you wait for your favorite pizza. Classic Margherita is topped with fresh basil and mozzarella, and the Farmer’s Market pizza is a great showcase for fresh, seasonal vegetables sourced from local farms and fields.
Artisan cheeses, fresh green salads, antipasto, bruschetta with homemade sourdough, soups, seasonal vegetables, and hearty pastas round out a menu that is complemented by a carefully curated list of handcrafted cocktails, wine and craft beer.
For the best view in SoWal, lounge on the shady terrace nestled in the dunes overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Dine in for a truly local experience or grab takeout at the walk-up window for pizza night at home.
