Zalat Pizza, a Dallas-based chain restaurant, is opening Aug. 9 west of the Texas Medical Center at 2303 W. Holcombe Blvd., Houston.

The pizzeria features in-house, from-scratch recipes with its own take on New York-style pizza.

"We are thrilled to be opening a location in the world-famous Houston Medical Center," Zalat Pizza Founder and CEO Khanh Nguyen said in a statement. "Our pizzas have always been especially appreciated by hospital and medical personnel because of our late-night hours, and we’re thrilled to serve them when most restaurants are closed.”

The opening will be the chain's sixth Houston-area location and the 24th overall in Texas.
