Are you a picky pizza eater and a thin crust is just not for you? Well, look no further. 

“Pizza Leila” recently opened and is located in Sloanes Corner where Ji Kang is the executive chef. 

The square-shaped pizza has become a new trendy menu item in Dallas. The dough of the pizza is thick and is similar to focaccia bread. While, a lighter crust pizza might have loads of toppings this type of pizza doesn’t need much except cheese, if anything at all. 

But if you want a little extra, Pizza Leila has numerous toppings, including vodka sausage, peppers, porchetta, artichoke, and spinach. And one slice might just fill you up since it weighs almost four pounds once it’s ready. 

Pizza Leila is open Monday to Saturday from 12 pm to 9 pm and if you don’t want to walk in they will be offering curbside pickup.
