la brigade pizza montreal food blogIf you’re the type of person who likes to build-your-own-everything, chances are you’ll get hooked on Brigade Pizzeria Napolitaine.

A DIY pizza place where your pizza dough is hand-stretched in front of your eyes, the venue’s concept is dynamic and fun. As you walk in, an assembly line of fresh ingredients is unveiled. Pick and choose whatever combination your wildest pizza fantasy desires. If deciding in the face of too much choice is not your forte, opt for a pre-made option on the menu.

An Italian blue cheese, the Gorgonzola added a real edge to the pizza with its strong, pungent, salty, yet sweet ending.

I, for my part, went for the classic margarita: san marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano, basil, extra virgin olive oil, to which I added a mountain of dried tomatoes and jalapenos ($7.49 + $1/extra). Mamma mia, those were fiery little ones. I need to stop thinking that my Asian genes give me invincible taste buds. Thanks little green ones for keeping me in check.

Pizzas at Brigade are thin, well crusted, with a moist and delicious center. If you’d rather have it crisp all around, simply ask and the staff will happily fulfill your desires.la brigade pizza montreal food blog 9 la brigade pizza montreal food blog 12 la brigade pizza montreal food blog 7la brigade pizza montreal food blog 8Wine and sangria are available on tap ($6-7). Be skeptical all you want, the Sangria had a rich full-bodied taste of fruit and red wine. Brigade also serves Belgian beers and American soft drinks imported straight from New Jersey. la brigade pizza montreal food blog 10 la brigade pizza montreal food blog 5 la brigade pizza montreal food blog 6In terms of appetizers, the place is about to release some serious meatballs.
