Set back off Chiswick High Road is the Brickoven, since taking over the sight a few years ago they have pulled down the trellis out the front to create a lovely outdoor courtyard perfect for dining. Brickoven is to all intense purposes an independent pizza restaurant, as they only other branches are in Milan – don’t you just love that!
We went last week to make the most of the sunny days (let’s hope that wasn’t the end of the summer), and enjoy al fresco dinning in the patio area.
Opting to use Kamut flour and no yeast, the pizza bases in Brickoven are very thin – a lot thinner than any of the other places we have tried. (This base is also supposed to be good for people with a wheat intolerance). Without a doubt these where also the largest pizzas we have had on the challenge. Served on a long thin oval wooden board
As always Dee went for the Napoli – this version was just mozzarella, oregano, and anchovies on the tomato sauce. I would have liked some additional toppings – capers or olives, but settled for the chilli oil to spicy up the pizza.
Jason ordered the Parma – tomatoes, mozzarella and parma ham. As with the Napoli the ingredients were quite plain, a number of other restaurants would have topped the pizza with herbs or would have put something with the ham like mushrooms or onions. The lack of extra ingredients didn’t detract from a very tasty pizza, the extra thin crust meant that although the pizza was quite large, you didn’t fill up with dough.
