Brick Oven Pizza

Sep 07, 11 Brick Oven Pizza

Brick Oven Pizza in Provo is the best place to go if you are looking for a hearty variety of homemade pastas, a huge salad bar, and of course, REALLY good pizza. Originally known as “Heaps of Pizza,” this Provo favorite has been around since 1956. With their checked tablecloths and their homey decorations, Brick Oven is a great place to meet with family and friends to have what feels like a home-cooked meal. They currently have locations in Provo and St. George, and they are planning on opening another pizza restaurant in West Valley in a few months.

Brick Oven PizzaI have eaten at Brick Oven for everything from family reunions to birthday celebrations, dates, and even a pre-high school graduation meal before we headed over to the Marriott Center. Let me just say this: I have never had anything there that I didn’t like. I have favorites, of course, but I am convinced that you can’t go wrong with anything you order.

So on to my personal favorites… Brick Oven’s pizza is definitely a must. Choose the deep dish option if it is available for the type of pizza you want, and ordering a bigger pizza will always be cheaper than buying a lot of personal pizzas. Just split it up and take the leftovers home! My favorite kinds of pizza are their supreme, Hawaiian, and my husband is a huge fan of the chicken alfredo.

Next, you have Brick Oven‘s pasta bar. Along with the classic bowtie and penne options, there are also choices for the more health-conscious individual, such as homemde whole wheat fettuccini. Can it get better than that? They have six or seven options for different pasta sauces, but mixing the roasted red pepper and the white alfredo is by far the best in my mind. Brick Oven Pizza

Finally, you have the soup and salad bars. Sometimes the soups rotate, but for the most part, they usually have clam chowder, cream of broccoli, and chicken noodle soup. The cream of broccoli I had last night was far better than I could have hoped–and I’m not even a broccoli lover! And Brick Oven’s salad bar has over 50 toppings to choose from.

Although I may have gone into too much detail already, Brick Oven‘s Old-Fashioned Root Beer is a definite must. Homemade every day, it tastes just like the homemade root beer that my family made when I was little. Get your own mug, and enjoy free refills for the rest of the night! Other than the incredible food, the environment at Brick Oven is completely friendly and welcoming. There is even a balloon-maker walking around tying balloons for children if they would like it. I would strongly recommend this restaurant, as it is great for families, groups, and dates as well!

If you are looking for a quicker, less hearty pizza meal, you may enjoy Pizza Pie Cafe better. They don’t have homemade root beer and deep dish pizza, but if you are absolutely starving, you may need that buffet!
