San Antonio's East Side Welcomes New Napolitano-Style Pizza Joint Truth Pizzeria

Truth Pizzeria, brainchild of Sulla Strada Pizza’s John Winkler, has opened its doors for carryout on San Antonio’s East Side.

For years, Winkler was a fixture on the patio of St. Mary's Strip bar the Squeezebox, building a loyal following by slinging Napolitano-style pizza for hungry patrons.

"I’m not biased or anything, but this man’s pie will forever have a top spot in my book," Squeezebox owner Aaron Peña said in a celebratory Facebook post June 20. "Go support Johnny Winkler and the @truthpizzeria team."

Truth Pizzeria is situated at the corner of East Commerce and East Hackberry streets, joining other Eastside eateries Dignowity Meats, Sweet Yams and Nairobi Bar & Grill.

The modest opening menu features white, margherita, veggie and pepperoni pizzas along with additional meat and vegetable options. Diners can order 12-inch or 16-inch pies.

Truth Pizzeria’s hours are varied since Winkler is still navigating the new business, but pie aficionados can follow the shop on social media to get daily updates.
