Big Paulie’s Pizzeria is located just off FM 1093 on FM 1463 in Fulshear. I must tell ya… Big Paulie is doing BIG things in Fulshear. No matter where you live in the city, it is well worth the drive to get your hands on a slice of heaven.
The first thing you notice as you walk in the door is the cool décor. You can tell a lot of time and effort went into the design and if you are a fan of Houston sports, then you will surely be impressed with the memorabilia. You will find a flat-screen television in view no matter where you sit , which makes it a great place to watch the game!
Big Paulie’s has a nice little craft beer selection and several wine choices which is nice. We settled in for the day to watch some football, have a few pops and enjoy a some dishes that had been recommended. We enjoyed the Meatballs, Fried Mozzarella, Wings, Muffuletta, Greek Salad, Caprese Pizza, The Bronx (Meat Lovers Pizza), Staten Island (Pepperoni Pizza), Homemade Cheesecake and Cannoli’s. I loved every bite I tried, but my two favorites were the the Bronx Pizza and the Staten Island.
The Bronx Pizza (Meat Lovers Pizza) is not for the faint of heart. This beautiful pie is stacked high with toppings and perfect for all you carnivores out there. This masterpiece is built with Pepperoni, Sausage, Meatballs, Prosciutto, Tomato Sauce, Pecornio and Ricotta… is that something you would be interested in? Ha! Seriously, it took everything I had not to devour the whole pizza, but I had other menu items in front of me, so I had to refrain.
My other favorite menu item from Big Paulie’s Pizzeria was another specialty pizza. Staten Island is not only one of the 5 Burroughs, but also one of my very favorite pizzas west of the Mississippi. I haven’t ever seen a pizza with more pepperoni on it. If you love pepperoni as much as I do, then the Staten Island is just what the doctor ordered. Pepperoni literally covers this pie from crust to crust. A thick layer of Mozzarella and a nice coating of Tomato Sauce is hidden under the ocean of Pepperoni. I took my first bite and the rich Mozzarella stretched from the slice to my lips. My mouth is watering right now just thinking about it. I highly recommend you try this pie!
There are tons of wonderful pizza joints in our beautiful city, but Big Paulie’s is on another level. The hand tossed pizza crust is built with love. The staff here at the pizzeria is top notch and always inviting… with a smile from ear to ear. This is not a place you want to take a to-go order from. The atmosphere at Big Paulie’s adds to the experience, and that is not something you want to miss out on. Enjoy!
