Now you don’t have to just visit salad bars or sandwich shops to create your on-the-go dream meal.
That’s right; pizza is all over the build your own meal trend. And Brigade is the first kid on the block to let you take up the reins.
Brigade Pizzeria Napolitaine is Canada’s only build-your-own pizzeria serving authentic neapolitan pizzas cooked in 900F wood burning ovens. As you can see from the picture, these ovens are no child’s play. This is serious business.
“We could not be more thrilled by the reception Brigade has been getting. We can tell Montreal is really a food city where people recognize the quality of ingredients and the integrity we put into our work. We wanted to thank all our customers who have embraced us since our opening.” said Jean-Daniel Nadeau, CEO of Brigade Pizzeria Napolitaine.
Here’s how it works:
You order a 12″ personal pizza at the counter, choose any of the toppings (there are a lot), wait a minute to two for your pizza to cook – just as it’s done in Naples – and then eat.
Yep, it’s that simple.
Quality ingredients include fresh mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh basil, imported cheeses, grass-fed beef meatballs, Prosciutto di Parma, and oven roasted meats and vegetables.
If you’re feeling on the lazier side, you can also order any of their signature pizzas that are already pre-designed for you.
The pizzas are made following the rules of Vera Pizza Napoletana, using 24-hour fermented dough that is hand stretched right in front of you. And it’s tastes as good as it sounds.
Like wine with your pizza? So do we. Good thing the wine menu is also extensive so you can pick and choose which red or white you want with your cheesy delight.
Brigade Pizzeria is located at 1428 Rue Stanley, between St. Catherine Street and Maisonneuve (across from Peel Metro).
