H-TOWN BITES: Check Out Gold Tooth Tony’s Detroit Pizza

In the bustling Greater Heights neighborhood of Houston, a new pizzeria has quickly become the talk of the town. Gold Tooth Tony’s Detroit Pizza, the brainchild of Anthony Calleo and his business partner, is redefining the city’s pizza scene. With his pizza artist roots tracing back to a humble beginning slinging dough at Papa John’s in 1998, Calleo’s journey through the pizza world has been a mix of passion, experience, and a desire to create something uniquely his own. After years of honing his craft across various pizza establishments, this past summer marked the launch of his very own venture—one that has soared in popularity far beyond his expectations.

This Pizza Is Hip To Be Square

Gold Tooth Tony’s distinguishes itself with its Detroit-style pizza, a square-shaped delight that stands out from the traditional round pizzas found in most Houston pizza joints. The secret lies in its thick, saucy crust, crowned with a remarkable crunch. This texture is achieved through the use of authentic Wisconsin brick cheese, whose fat content drips down, coating the pan which renders a “fried-like” texture to the crust, making it addictively gooey and sinfully delicious. For over 15 years, Calleo has been perfecting the pizzas that now grace the menu, refining them into the mouthwatering selections patrons can’t seem to get enough of. “Most of the stuff; I’ve been making in some shape or form for probably about 15 years. This is really a revised version of that coming together I think the way it was always supposed to. This is the sum of a lot of things and a lot of other people’s work that isn’t just mine coming together to be a thing.”  – Owner, Anthony Calleo Among the favorites is “The Pep,” an ode to the art of simplicity— a cheese and pepperoni pizza that has captivated the hearts (and taste buds) of many with its out-of-this-world flavor. It’s a testament to Calleo’s philosophy that good food doesn’t have to be complicated; it just has to be good. However, Gold Tooth Tony’s is not just about pizza. The menu offers a variety of options to suit any craving, from classic buffalo hot wings and meatball subs to more innovative, culturally diverse choices like Togarashi dry-spiced wings (don’t sleep on these). The rapid success of Gold Tooth Tony’s Detroit Pizza is a reflection of Calleo’s dedication and the unique niche it fills in Houston’s diverse culinary landscape. As a departure from the norm, it invites locals and visitors alike to experience a different kind of pizza—one that’s rooted in tradition yet bold in execution. In a city known for its vast food culture, Gold Tooth Tony’s stands out as a must-visit destination for those seeking to indulge in a slice of Detroit right in the heart of Texas. Whether you’re a pizza aficionado or just in search of your next culinary adventure, Gold Tooth Tony’s promises an experience that’s as memorable as it is delicious. With its combination of classic flavors, inventive twists, and a cozy, welcoming atmosphere, it’s clear that this pizzeria is here to stay—and Houstonians couldn’t be happier.
