Brick Oven Pizza Delray Beach

I met up with pizzaexpert for some pizza at the Brick Oven Pizzeria on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. 5869 W Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach - (561) 496-5300. It was chosen specifically because neither one of us has ever tried their pizza. We were curious if they could do brick oven pizza right.

The first positive quality I noticed about this place were their prices. It seemed very fair, especially for the large cheese pie. I was surprised. I would say their cheese pie was about $3 dollars cheaper than any other place I've been to in the area. Hopefully this pizza wouldn't taste as cheap as its price.

Our brick oven pizza came out and it was hot but not too hot to quickly take a first bite. My first reaction was the crust of this pizza. It was very tasty. It had a thin yet firm feel. It wasn't doughy nor did the crust fold to the bottom as I was holding it. The cheese tasted fresh and the first slice was worth the wait. This pizza stayed warm for almost the whole meal and two to three slices were all you needed to fill up so there were leftovers to take home.

I took a few slices home and the next day I heated them up. I prefer my leftover pizza well done so I overcooked it just a bit. It didn't hold as well as I would have hoped but then again, I'm no expert in reheating pizza that was already cooked. Still, I've had worse leftovers in my lifetime.

My only complaint about the pie when it came out was that there was just a touch more sauce. I'm a pizza sauce fan so this is just a preference of mine. The restaurant's ambiance isn't the hippest place but it serves its purpose. Let's just say that your grandma and grandpa will love the restaurant and free valet parking. The service was adequate but not the type you'd expect if you were eating in downtown Delray. It's definitely a slower pace at the Brick Oven Pizzeria.

I'd go back to the Brick Oven Pizzeria. I enjoyed their pizza. 5 out of 8 slices. Oh and I forgot to mention, the Parmesan cheese on the table tasted fresh so give that slice a little sprinkle. Stay away from the garlic rolls (just ask pizzaexpert) at the Brick Oven Pizzeria and as always, eat a cheese pizza.
