where brick oven inspiration was born.
Our home away from home
West End Pizza is more than a pizza joint—it's a second family. From our weekly "don't-feel-like-cooking-tonight" regulars to the out-of-town vacationers, we enjoy serving every customer. Owner Janet Degenhardt moved to Fredericksburg, TX in 2003 with her husband and two boys after earning her Business Degree at University of North Texas and working in various industries as a Marketing Director. Soon enough, her love for Texas hospitality, cooking and—of course—PIZZA all joined forces and in 2009 West End Pizza Company was born. Ever since, the crew at West End Pizza Company in Fredericksburg, Texas has been satisfying hungry patrons with hot, brick oven-inspired goodness.

What it's all about
Not all pizzas are created equal and at West End Pizza Company, it's our mission to serve a fresh one. The only thing frozen here is our margaritas. In fact, we make all of our dough from scratch daily. (It's quite a science, actually.) We make all of our desserts from scratch—and our sauces, too. All using the freshest ingredients possible. Our pizza "artists" pour our love of the pizza pie into every design and our oven gurus have the timing down to the millisecond to assure your food is hot, delicious and simply unforgettable.
If walls could talk
West End Pizza Company is located in the historic A. L. Patton building on West Main Street in Fredericksburg, Texas. The two story native limestone building has quite a history. A Missouri native, Albert Lee Patton (1851-1934), trained as a tinsmith and moved to Fredericksburg in the early 1870s. In 1897 he constructed this building adjacent to the east side of his general mercantile and hardware store (you'll see the original "hardware" markings on the interior stone wall.) The ground floor housed the Citizens Bank until it closed in 1932 and the second floor area was used as a residence by Patton, his wife Emma (Wahrmund), and their five children. It was officially recorded as a Texas Historic Landmark in1980.
it takes a village
Fredericksburg is such a special place to live, raise a family and run a business. One of the wonderful things about owning a restaurant in Fredericksburg is is all the support you can give back to the local community. The owners are generous with numerous organizations throughout the area by providing donations, discounts and gift cards. After all, if it weren't for our loyal local following, we would not be the success we are today.
