Recipes are written in a language all their own, leading amateur cooks to confuse a pinch for a dash or forget that the chef's word for "water" is "salt." Trust a native speaker with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth fare at Britt's Coal Fire Pizza in Treasure Island.
The cooks at Britt's Coal Fire Pizza bake family-friendly, Italian-influenced eats in a 900-degree coal fire oven. Like a humidor filled with beef jerky, the menu brims with smoky options, including traditional or whole grain (additional $1) pizzas ($4.90–$12.90) covered in mozzarella and romano cheese and ingredients such as italian sausage, prosciutto, and mushrooms ($0.95–$1.95 each), or specials like the white pizza with white sauce, mozzarella, romano cheese, and tomatoes ($13.90–$16.90). Baked subs ($5.90–$8.90) and calzones ($6.25–$7.50) wrap melted layers of cheese and fresh ingredients in crusty hugs, and oven-roasted chicken wings are served with grilled onions ($7.90–$13.90), which can be paired with homemade fruit-infused sangria ($4/glass; $12.90/pitcher), smoothies ($3.50–$4.50), or coffee drinks.
Britt's Coal Fire Pizza
Since 1992, Britt's Coal Fire Pizza has been baking Old-World culinary goodness by way of classic coal-fire cooking techniques. Behind the restaurant's red-and-yellow façade, chef John Parker brings 20 years of culinary experience to baking pizzas at more than 800 degrees in a custom-built coal-fired oven. He makes marinara and pizza sauces from imported ingredients, and he makes his dough, bread, and meatballs from scratch every day. Parker has also added an inventive twist to hot wings, roasting them with extra virgin olive oil and then serving them with grilled onions and warm bread. Parker's team serves wine, smoothies and homemade desserts, too, which can be enjoyed on the patio or indoors.
The toppings are so flavorful, that you truly appreciate them. I love the cheese pizza with fresh basil. But my new favorite, is tomato and ricottaLeaFlowers, TripAdvisor, 6/3/11
