Brixx pizza does not impress

Madi Calvert, Reporter

Madi Calvert– Located at 8954 E 116th Street, as part of the Depot, an upcoming combination of apartments and shops, Brixx wood fired pizza did not live up to the high expectations I had for it. I usually love wood fired pizza, but the way Brixx prepared it just did not thrill me.

The pizzeria’s menu also offers a selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pasta, wraps and desserts. Plus, catering is available along with a select menu for kids. The food is about what you would expect for a cheap, greasy pizza place, except it is not incredibly cheap. If I’m paying $8.50 for a ten-inch pizza, I would appreciate if it tasted decent.

The crust was almost too thin, and had a chalky texture. The cheese was goopy, and there was way too much sauce. Prior to eating the food for myself, I heard a lot of the same objections from friends. Reviews on Yelp are not kind to the chain restaurant either.

Though the restaurant was decorated nicely and had a mellow, indie feel to it, the food just was not good enough to make me want to return.
