The Perfect Combination

(ROCKWALL, TX – April 21, 2018) Need a conversation starter? Ask people about their favorite pizza. Or their favorite barbecue. Nearly everyone has a mouthful to say on these subjects.

These days, the talk of the town is the partnership between Samee’s Pizza Getti – repeatedly voted Rockwall’s Best Pizza – and Smoke Sessions Barbecue in Royse City.

Mouthwatering Mondays

Family owned and operated, these two businesses are stirring things up with the introduction of Brisket Pizza and Brisket Nachos, served exclusively on Mondays at Samee’s award-winning restaurant – where owners Samee and Molly Dowlatshahi pour their passion and countless hours into serving others. Now they’ve teamed up with another hard-working couple to present a combined culinary creation that’s making Mondays not so mundane.

“I first discovered Smoke Sessions when I ordered for my family’s Thanksgiving,” said Samee. “There was quite the buzz about them on Facebook.”

When Samee tried their brisket for the first time, he knew wanted to feature it in one of his recipes. He and his employees sampled an entire brisket before realizing they hadn’t touched the barbecue sauce. “That’s how good it is,” Samee said.

Chad Sessions, a self-taught pitmaster, explained, “All our meats are smoked low-and-slow using only post oak wood – no propane, no natural gas or electric assist. It takes longer, but the results are worth every hour spent in the pit.” On a leap of faith, Chad and his wife Jessica invested their last dime building their barbecue business, making everything by hand – including their food trailer on Highway 66.

Recipe for Success

“I told Chad and Jessica I wanted to promote their growing business. Small businesses should support each other,” said Samee, adding that “if you’re offering a quality product and good service, there’s plenty of restaurant business to go around.”

Pizza Getti packs the house seven days a week, whether it’s lunch, dinner, or a late night karaoke crowd in the bar. Since Smoke Sessions is closed Mondays, Samee knew it would be the perfect time to dish out a combined creation. The large Brisket Pizza is layered with nearly a pound of sliced brisket, mozzarella, goat cheese, red onion, and just the right amount of Smoke Sessions’ sauce. Brisket Nachos are a crowd pleaser with chopped brisket, jalapenos, fresh tomatoes, and Cajun Alfredo atop deep fried corn tortilla chips, drizzled with barbecue sauce.

“Monday is our new Friday,” Samee said. “The demand has been so great that we’ve even begun serving Brisket Lasagna on Tuesday.”

The Dowlatshahi family

Pizza Getti patrons know that Samee and Molly have a heart for helping others. Since opening their restaurant in 2012, the Dowlatshahi’s have continually given back to the community by organizing fundraisers and bringing support to local families. Ask any regular, and they’ll likely tell you they come to Samee’s for the food as much as for the hospitality. Day or night, Samee is almost always there.

“We’re about family and friendships,” said Samee. “I believe that to succeed, you must never lose your hunger or your humility.”

Samee’s Pizza Getti is located in the Ridge Road Shopping Center, same shopping center as 24 Hour Fitness. Smoke Sessions Barbecue is located at 7612 Highway 66 in Royse City.
