1st Place: Best of the Best contest in the Hill Country News!
Congratulations to Yaghi's for your 1st Place: BEST PIZZA award in the Hill Country News Best of the Best 2008 contest!"
"When it comes to pizza, Yaghi's has it down! There's no better pizza in Cedar Park, Leander or Austin."
Here's what renowned Austin food critic Rob Balon had to say about Yaghi's
"...what a find Yaghi's has been! The restaurant serves up a crispy, thin-crust New York style pie that appeals to the pizza lover in me. You can always judge a pizza joint by the simplest of all its creations: the cheese pizza. They use hundred percent whole-milk Wisconsin mozzarella cheese at Yaghi's. It has an excellent flavor and texture with a nice, little bite to it. And it passes the refrigerator test. You can pop it out of the box the next morning and wolf down a slice cold.
Another really excellent pizza is the Feta pizza. They make this with feta cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, spinach, mozzarella cheese, and fresh tomatoes. The flavor component of this pizza is off the charts. The feta works perfectly to ad taste yet doesn't overwhelm the pizza. And my personal favorite: The Meat Pizza. This has pepperoni, Italian sausage, sliced meatballs, hamburger, ham, mozzarella cheese, and sauce. For the final touch, ask them to add some onions. This is a seriously cool pizza. The faint of heart need not apply!
And there's more to Yaghi's New York Pizzeria than just pizza. I'm very partial to the Stromboli. This is a dough pie with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, ham and green peppers baked inside. They do a very nice job with this. Another favorite is the Gyro. Using a combination of pressed beef and lamb wrapped into a big slice of hot pita bread along with veggies and a yogurt sauce, this is one of the best Gyro's in town. Terrific flavor and lots of value...."
