Check out what new eateries are heading to Frisco below:
Cane Rosso serves some of the most authentic Neapolitan style pizza in the metroplex. Its fresh, never-frozen dough is made in-house every day, using all natural "double-zero" flour imported from Italy. The sauce for Cane Rosso's pizzas is made from hand-crushed San Marzano tomatoes, and the mozzarella is made fresh in-house daily. Cane Rosso pizzas are fired in specially built wood-fired ovens from Italy that reach 900 degrees and cook the pizzas in under 90 seconds for a delicate and light, slightly charred dough. Since opening the first Deep Ellum location, Cane Rosso was named “Best Pizza in Dallas” by D Magazine 5 years in a row, has appeared on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” with host, Guy Fieri, and received numerous awards and honors from The Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Observer, and Eater Dallas, as well as being listed among Eater National's 38 Essential Pizzerias in America and The Daily Meal's 101 Best Pizza Places in America.

Cow Tipping Creamery started as a small, family-run ice cream truck and through a partnership with Cane Rosso, expanded to the DFW metroplex in early 2016.

Cow Tipping Creamery seeks to keep people excited and create specials that complement its featured flavors of the week, while always keeping a menu of customer favorites.
