SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is getting in the summer spirit with multiple new additions to its menu. Cool down with deliciously creamy gelato and refreshingly cold soda floats or take a load off with adult floats featuring hard sodas that take the mouthwatering treats to a whole new level. Along with its icy selections, SPIN! now has three new Summery Sangrias that perfectly complement its four flavorful BBQ pizzas.
For those 21 and over, SPIN!® introduces Grown-Up Floats featuring hard sodas poured at the table over a generous scoop of SPIN! Pizza’s all-natural Tahitian Vanilla gelato Italian ice cream. Three new beers -- Not Your Father’s Root Beer, Coney Island Orange Cream Ale and Best Damn Cherry Cola – make ”perfetto” Grown-Up Floats.
For the younger crowd and those who prefer their floats minus alcohol, new Soda Floats are a cool way to get Summery. Choose from any fountain soda, root beer, or one of five flavors of Izze sodas – Sparkling Pomegranate, Sparkling Apple, Sparkling Grapefruit, Sparkling Clementine, and Sparkling Blackberry.
If you’re a wine drinker, SPIN!’s new Summery Sangrias are a deliciously refreshing drink on a hot day. Infused with the flavors of the season, SPIN!’s newest homemade sangrias are served with a frozen fruitsicle (fresh frozen fruit on a stick) and fresh herbs. Try the new Summerberry, Pineapple Peach Basil, or Watermelon mint made with watermelon pureed in-house. Of course, SPIN! will still serve its freshly homemade white, red and blood orange sangrias as well. Summery Sangrias are $5.95 a glass and are available at special prices during happy hour.
What would summer in Dallas-Fort Worth be without barbecue? SPIN! has added a trio of new BBQ pizzas made with local barbecue sauce. The Burnt Ends and Caramelized Onions pizza includes spicy Calabrian peppers and fresh mozzarella along with barbecue sauce. The Spicy Calabrian Shrimp pizza is topped with get-your-attention shrimp, roasted potatoes, Calabrian peppers, and fresh mozzarella. For vegetable lovers, there’s a Bellas & Veggies BBQ pizza covered with roasted portabella mushrooms, roasted corn, roasted red peppers and Calabrian peppers. SPIN! perennial favorite BBQ Chicken & Roasted Pineapple Pizza rounds out the selection of BBQ pizzas with its added caramelized onions and fresh mozzarella toppings.
All of the BBQ pizzas are available as 12 inch pizzas, as well as a Mini Mia personal size pizza with a salad, and as a personal Mini Mia size pizza during happy hour.
As always, SPIN! takes the unique step of boosting flavors by roasting its pizza toppings in herbed olive oil in its stone hearth ovens each day. All of SPIN!’s hand-spun stone-fired pizzas can be served on traditional thin-and-bubbly crust, rustic whole wheat, or gluten-free crust. SPIN!’s pizza dough is made fresh daily and its gluten free crust is renowned for its flavor and texture.
SPIN! also serves a tremendous selection of fresh salads topped with made-from-scratch dressings, homemade soups, signature Panini and Italian deli sandwiches, appetizers, small plates, and gelato ice creams made in small batches with real fruits and nuts.
We had the opportunity to enjoy the new seasonal offerings at SPIN! recently. Let us just say: The pizzas and sangrias certainly have us in a summer state of mind. Here’s our take on the new menu items.
Sangrias: We’ve always been a fan of the blood orange sangria at SPIN!, and now we have three new favorites to enjoy. Well, for the summer at least. Each seasonal sangria—Summerberry, Pineapple Peach Basil and Watermelon Mint—is invigorating and creative. If you could pour summer over ice, we imagine this is what it would taste like. The Pineapple Peach Basil won us over with fragrant basil and sweet fruit. It’s cool, refreshing and oh so delicious.
Burnt Ends and Caramelized Onion Pizza: This meaty, zesty pie was like eating all our favorite barbecue fare in circular form. The burnt ends were tender and flavorful, and when combined with barbecue sauce and caramelized onion, each bite was an explosion of meaty flavor.
BBQ Chicken & Roasted Pineapples Pizza: There’s no wonder this pizza lives on the menu year-round—it’s incredible. The spiciness of the barbecue sauce combines with the juiciness of the pineapple, infusing each bite with over-the-top flavor.
Spicy Calabrian Shrimp Pizza: As my first-ever shrimp pizza, let me tell you, you will never look at cheese pizza the same. This delicious pie comes with perfectly cooked shrimp, roasted potatoes, Calabrian peppers and melt in your mouth mozzarella topped with SPIN!’s signature BBQ sauce that will be sure to make your mouth fill with satisfaction. The added shrimp makes this pizza to die for. The mix of the specialty BBQ sauce perfectly complements the shrimp’s juicy flavor.
Bellas & Veggies BBQ Pizza: If you’re veggie lover, prepare to fall in love all over again with this filling, savory pizza topped with roasted portabella mushrooms, roasted corn, roasted red peppers and Calabrian peppers. For anyone worried about not having any meat, believe me, the garnishes on this pie will be sure to keep you full till morning. The first bite I took, I could not get my mind off the roasted corn that makes this pizza just as tasty as it is unique.
Gelato: At the end of the meal, although I was stuffed from the exceptional pizza, I could not get my mind off the amazing gelato selection SPIN! offers. From white chocolate raspberry to pistachio and Swiss chocolate, among other options, everyone will be sure to find a flavor they absolutely adore. The creamy, addicting gelato was the perfect end to an already unforgettable meal.
