Have you ever had Mexican pizza? It’s on the menu at the new Nico’s restaurant in Far North Dallas
Dallas’s new far north restaurant, Nico’s MX Pizzeria and Cocktail Venue, aims to serve dishes we haven’t seen much in North Texas: an Italian-style pizza crust topped with Mexican ingredients. .
Think chili relleno, but on the pizza. Pork marinated in guajillo, on pizza. Same Salsa Verde Doritos and chopped filet mignon, on pizza.
Co-owner Nico Ponce says Mexican food and pizza are his favorite dishes, so he opened a restaurant, combining the two.
“All the flavors and all the ingredients translate brilliantly on the pizza,” he says.
Nico’s opens on October 21 in Far North Dallas, replacing Picasso’s Pizza near Dallas North Tollway and Frankford Road.
Ponce has worked for The Rustic, Bowl & Barrel and Mutts Canine Cantina at D-FW. Its leader is Juan Manny Reyes, and he worked at several D-FW pizzerias, including Grimaldi’s and Fireside Pies.
Nico’s menu items include the Fajitzza Tenderloin, a pizza topped with beef, salsa verde, onion, peppers, cilantro and cheese; La Poblana, a pizza with poblano peppers, corn and Cholula hot sauce; and the Mexican-Hawaiian pizza, with ham, pineapple and marinated jalapeños.
There’s even one called Loco Doritos, which is topped with fries, bean salsa, and minced filet mignon.
Those who prefer pizza with no Mexican toppings can order from a separate menu that serves Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Classic Pepperoni, Chicken Alfredo, and more.
Nico’s serves three vegan pizzas, including a jackfruit pie marinated with salsa verde.
Nico’s MX Pizzeria and Cocktail Venue is at 18160 Dallas Parkway, Dallas. Its opening is scheduled for October 21, 2021.
