Within eight months of opening its doors, My Family’s Pizza has garnered a reputation for serving up a superior Sicilian thin crust pizza. Longtime Dallas residents have visited the first location of this chain, originally named Pizza by Marco, on Preston Road since the 1960s. As the new name implies, the pizza — made with a decades-old Sicilian sauce recipe — has some serious family roots. And Matthew Rangel, one of the Skillman pizza joint’s three co-owners, has deep Lakewood roots himself. As a proud alum of Stonewall Jackson, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Woodrow Wilson, he says he’s thrilled to have the support of his hometown. “This is such a laid back, friendly community, and I want this restaurant to represent that.” One way to enjoy that casual vibe, Rangel says, is to order a My Family’s crispy-crusted pie and sip a cold pint inside his other business, The Pour House, next door.
