Fiume Pizzeria and Wine Bar is now open near the Arneson River Theatre.

Fiume Pizzeria and Wine Bar has opened on the San Antonio River Walk, promising to fuse Texan ingredients with Neapolitan-style pizza techniques.

The owners of Fiume use the term “Texapoletana” to describe their artisan pizzas, which incorporate locally sourced ingredients. Among the menu offerings are a specialty Texas Heat pie made with smoked bacon and Italian peppers and desserts including homemade gelato with local berries.

Fiume cultivated the first yeast for its pizzas about two years ago, according to its opening announcement, and a fermented “mother” gives its dough a deep, natural flavor that commercial yeast often lacks.

According to the owners, a signature Ferrari red Fiero pizza oven forms the focal point of their outdoor patio.

Located near the Arneson River Theater at 200 S. Alamo St., Fiume is open daily from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
