Pizza and fine dining come together beginning this week at Fireside Pies. A new selection of menu items called Fireside by Pyles, created in collaboration with chef Stephan Pyles, will debut at the pizza shop on Thursday, Sept. 17. 

The Fireside by Pyles menu will offer pizzas, salads and light bites inspired by Pyles’ international travels. New pies include the Vietnamese pizza, a crispy slice of rice paper topped with artisan sausage, caramelized onions and chile aioli. Another option is the Oaxacan clayuda, a large flour tortilla topped with slow-cooked cumin black beans, queso fresco and avocado.

Non-pizza items include the chipotle short ribs with pappardelle noodles and the salmon with butternut squash polenta.

“After leaving four decades of owning and operating restaurants behind me, I knew, for my own sanity, I had to stay involved in creative culinary projects,” Pyles said in a statement. “But at this point, I can be very selective and work with operations whom I truly respect and admire. Fireside Pies is just such a place.”

The “Fireside by Pyles” menu will be available beginning Sept. 17 at Fireside Pies Inwood, Sept. 23 at Fireside Pies Lakewood, Sept. 24 at Fireside Pies Plano, Sept. 30 at Fireside Pies Grapevine and Oct. 1 at Fireside Pies Fort Worth.
