There’s a hot new pizza parlor in town – and it’s located so close to Ocean Reef Resort that guests just might catch a whiff of the business’s delicious, wood-fired Italian creations while out and about in the neighborhood.
Started with a single shop in Charlotte, North Carolina, 20 years ago, Brixx Wood Fired Pizza has since put down roots at more than 30 locations throughout the Southeast – and the latest spot to host the regional chain’s wood-fired brick ovens is located less than a mile from Ocean Reef Resort at 8006 North Kings Highway.
Brixx serves pizzas created with house-made dough, then topped with fresh veggies, meats, and cheese made right on-site with the finest Wisconsin dairy milk. To give its signature creations their distinctive, wood-fired taste, Brixx then cooks its pizzas in a brick oven, serving to enhance the natural flavors of all of the high-quality ingredients.
The Brixx menu – which includes vegan and vegetarian offerings, as well as options with a whole-wheat crust and items that are gluten-free to accommodate any guests with dietary restrictions – features a number of signature “Classics” with creative (and often gourmet-territory) topping combinations. For example, the Korean Pepper Steak gets a Korean barbecue base, then is topped with shaved roasted beef, roasted peppers & onions, sesame seeds, cracked black pepper, fresh cilantro and mozzarella. Another unique example, the Spicy Shrimp, gets a Sriracha base before being topped with spicy shrimp, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, mozzarella and goat cheese.
Of course, more-traditional options are available for those seeking a less-adventurous meal, such as the Americo with pepperoni, mushrooms and mozzarella on a tomato-sauce base, and the Bronx Bomber with Italian sausage, prosciutto, gorgonzola and mozzarella on a tomato-sauce base.
The Veggin’ Out section of the menu offers meatless masterpieces such as the Pear & Gorgonzola pizza with sliced Asian pears, mozzarella, gorgonzola, walnuts & caramelized onions on an olive oil base, and the Wood-Roasted Vegetable pizza with wild mushrooms, broccoli, onions, peppers, fresh oregano and mozzarella on a base of tomato sauce.
For guests who might not be in the mood for pizza, Brixx also offers a lineup of sandwiches made on focaccia bread that’s fresh-baked daily. Options include the Italian Beef with shaved roast beef, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, house-made stout mustard & gorgonzola, all with warm au jus for dipping, as well as the Roasted Chicken Sub with hand-pulled, oven-roasted chicken, pecan-smoked bacon, melted Fontina cheese, tomato, arugula and aioli.
Pasta dishes, appetizers, salads and desserts round out the wide range of menu offerings – and guests can wash it all down with nearly 25 craft-beer options on tap and a wide variety of wine and cocktail options available.
