Some of the best Italian food in Texas is hiding where you’d least expect to find it: the densely forested landscape of the Piney Woods. Switch Brick Oven Pizza & Wine Bar in Palestine is an East Texas icon, but the rest of the state doesn’t even know it exists. From the authentic Neapolitan-style pizza to the wine room that looks like it belongs at a vineyard in the Italian countryside, this hidden gem is so worth seeking out.

Hours are 4:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 4:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. Friday, and 3 p.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday. Visit the restaurant’s website or Facebook page for more information.
