Legend has it that centuries ago, the finest pizzas were baked in brick ovens on terracotta stone. Today, RedBrick PizzaTM combines this centuries-old Italian tradition with new world technology to create fresh fire-roasted gourmet pizzas. RedBrick’s oven sears your pizza at more than 1,000 degrees on their “RedBrick” stone, generally in three minutes.
Among RedBrick’s many delicious options for pizza, you will find the Margherita Pizza Rustica on Acai Crust. This 9-inch pizza includes mozzarella, provolone, white cheddar, Parmesan, basil, garlic, fresh tomatoes and red sauce with acai berry multi-grain whole-wheat crust. That’s a lot of flavor for just 450 calories, 6 grams saturated fat, 4 grams fiber and 19 grams of protein!
Not in the mood for pizza? You’ll also find great sandwiches and salads, along with fabulous healthful desserts. RedBrick’s Fire-Roasted Gourmet Italian Sandwiches are unlike anything you’ve tried before! The FhazaniTM Chicken Pesto Sandwich on original flatbread also includes ricotta cheese, red and green peppers, red onions, pesto sauce, fresh chilled greens and ranch dressing for only 340 calories, 2 grams saturated fat, 2 grams fiber and a whopping 22 grams of protein. Plus, this is one of the lower-sodium options offered, with only 370 milligrams sodium.
If salads are more your thing, the small Chinese Chicken salad is the perfect alternative, providing only 230 calories, 0.5 grams saturated fat, a healthy 5 grams of fiber and 16 grams of protein. This flavor-filled salad includes chicken, Chinese greens, green and red bell peppers, sesame seeds, mandarin oranges and wontons. If adding the tangy Oriental dressing, stick with one tablespoon to limit added calories and fat (90 calories and 5 g total fat).
