Ever had sauerkraut and link sausage on a pizza? Z’s Wood Fired Pizza in Boerne looked to the town’s German roots to invent its “Boerne Wurst” pie. Sausage, gouda, and sauerkraut make this a pizza for those who cannot decide between pizza and German food. Also, look out for specialty pizzas that appear for a limited time. Some past weird pizza toppings this pizzeria has served have included remoulade sauce, andouille sausage, and shrimp on a “Cajun” pie.
