Brixx

Brixx is a southeastern chain of restaurants known for its pizza, although they also have salads, sandwiches and pasta. In addition, they have an amazing craft beer menu. If you want to try a draft beer before ordering a full glass, just ask for a sample first. I had a beer that tasted like watermelon, very unique.

I hadn’t been to a Brixx since going plant-based, but I was excited to try it. They offer three types of pizza crusts: traditional, whole wheat and gluten-free. They have a nutrition guide for all of their menu items. Allergen information is also provided on their website.

Most impressive for me is this statement right on their website: “We also offer an array of vegan options for our guests. Our vegan cheese is available on any of our pizzas, salads and sandwiches at no extra charge. And, our traditional and whole wheat doughs are made with turbinado sugar and are 100% vegan, as well.” They use Daiya mozzerella. The actual menus in the restaurant also reiterate that vegan cheese is available. No guess work, and I was free enjoy a pizza!

Added spinach

Dan had the Margherita pizza (roma tomatoes, basil and vegan cheese) with added spinach and on whole wheat crust. I ordered the Wood-Roasted Vegetable pizza (wild mushrooms, broccoli, onions, peppers and fresh oregano with tomato sauce and vegan mozzarella) also on whole wheat. The pizzas are individual sized (10 inches) and thin-crust style. They also are not greasy at all. Dan and I both enjoyed our pizzas immensely and would absolutely go back!
