I was absolutely starving by early evening, so I figured it was a good time to enjoy some oversized restaurant portions. I’ve had my eye on the Pear-Gorgonzola pizza at Brixx, but knew the husband would never split it with me. I was completely prepared to have a pizza to myself, so tonight was a good night to go. 🙂
The perfect solution for an indecisive person: the beer sampler.
I tried the Sweet Water 420, Bells Two-Hearted Ale, Loose Cannon, and Star Hill Northern Lights IPA. I liked the Loose Cannon the best. (And not just because I’m partial to Baltimore where it’s brewed.)
They look gigantic but they’re really only 2 oz pours.
We started off with the Spinach Artichoke Dip, which was out of this world good.
Then I ordered the Pear Gorgonzola Pizza I had been so excited about. I got it with whole wheat crust and vegan cheese, just because it was an option. It also has walnuts and red onions.
Notice anything missing? When you order vegan cheese they don’t give you gorgonzola. Duh. I didn’t think that one through. It was interesting trying to explain to the waitress that I still wanted it.
It didn’t end up mattering though. This honestly was the grossest pizza I’ve ever eaten. I like walnuts, but on pizza? No thanks. The whole thing was completely bland and tasted like nothing. I managed to eat two slices before I couldn’t do it anymore. I wrapped the rest of it up to bring home and try to jazz up for leftovers.
Oh well, at least the spinach artichoke dip was good 🙂
