Zagat has crowned Vivo 53 one of The 7 Hottest New Pizza Places in Dallas-Fort Worth and awarded its burrata a spot on the list of 14 of the Most Photogenic Dishes in Dallas-Fort Worth, so even if you haven't had a chance to eat here yet, a stop is long overdue. After all, it's not far from Villas of Oak Hill Apartments! The rave reviews from customers are pouring in, too, if food critics' opinions aren't enough to convince you that this Italian eatery offers something special.

Its chefs are meticulous about crafting the perfect pizza crust (the restaurant is actually named for the number of tries it took to come up with the perfect dough, according to Zagat​). So when you bite into a piece of the popular spicy sausage pizza, take some time to really savor the crust. This is just one of many gourmet pies, including the fried kale, Kobe meatball, and crispy prosciutto. You can also skip the pizza and go for a plate of fresh pasta instead, such as lasagna, spaghetti, or rigatoni.
