A taste of Southern Italy is coming to downtown San Antonio in June.

Dough Pizzeria Napoletana’s owners, husband and wife Doug and Lori Horn, are opening a third eatery at 518 S. Alamo St. in Hemisfair. The first location debuted in November 2007 at 6989 Blanco Road, and the second is in Plano.

The pizzeria features freshly made Neapolitan-style pizza, which has a charred crust, sparse toppings and a raised border.

Lori Horn said there was a big demand to open a downtown spot.

“It’s a great location for the locals that live downtown, (and) also convention attendees, exhibitors and the tourism market,” Horn said.

The pizzas are made from fresh ingredients, many from Italy, as well as sourced from from local farmers. Several items are made in-house, including mozzarella and burrata.

The new spot will have the same menu as the original locale, with customer favorites such as the Margherita, with homemade mozzarella, tomato sauce and Bluebonnet Farms basil; and the signature Pork Love, dressed up with spicy sausage, speck, soppressata salami, pancetta, mozzarella and tomato sauce.

“Everything is true to as if you’re in Naples, Italy, and if you went into a pizzeria there,” Horn said.

She added the wood-burning oven cooks pizzas in about 90 seconds at 900 degrees or higher.

The new location will have a patio outside looking out on Hemisfair, along with a wine list, espresso and a selection of local craft beers.
