Whole Foods flagship on Sixth and Lamar introduces self-serve pizza bar

Matthew Odam

It just got a whole lot easier to grab a quick slice of pizza at the Whole Foods Market flagship store at West Sixth Street and Lamar Boulevard. As part of a reconfiguration of the area that is home to the salad and hot bars, Whole Foods has added a self-serve pizza bar. There are about a dozen pizzas available for self-serving on the bar, and flavors yesterday included pepperoni, prosciutto and arugula, Italian sausage, cheese pizza and more. Self-serve pizza is sold by slice ($3.50) or two slices for $6. Whole pizzas can still be ordered for pickup.

“We are excited to have our New York Style pizza and our new skillet program join the selection of self serve items in our prepared foods department at our downtown Austin store,” director of culinary in the Southwest region of Whole Foods Market said. “The addition of added food bar space has allowed us to expand offerings and bring more choices to our guests, with several other new offerings joining the current lineup soon.”
