A long day of meetings ,Gagit and San Diego too tired to go to D.O.M. but Braz Pizza is one of the best in Brazil and a great way to unwind.We get to Braz and no surprise a half hour wait in this huge restaurant. We order a house special Chopp,Brahma Black,a real beer that tastes more like Root Beer than Guinness,smooth and light flavor.We are hungry and find a starter that will keep us going until we are seated,Linquica on Skewers with Onion, shown above and perfectly cooked in the wood oven,as shown.
We are finally seated and our server Enzo ,gets me another Chopp and San Diego a Caipirinha,as we study the huge Pizza menu and really want to try them all. We make our choice ,a medium pizza ,6 slices of two different,combinations,half Caprese,fresh Mozzarella,Tomatoes ,and a special Black Olive Spread and Basil and half Portuguesa,Ham, Egg, and Onion ,Olives, all over a Tomato and Cheese base shown in full splendor above. Enzo serves each of us with a smile and covers the Pizza until we ask for another piece.He also brings over as shown ,hot Olive Oil, red Peppers, and hot spicy fresh Peppers, this is a serious Pizza restaurant.We devour this Pizza,enjoying every bite and leave the restaurant ,passing by the Pizza staff and ovens with a abragado.
Let the Truth be Told, I have read that Brazil consistently wins world contests for best Pizza,after eating at Braz I know now why. The pizza itself was as tasty ,crunchy, chewy as could be desired and the fresh ingredients as toppings ,gourmet treats.After tasting all the overhyped and underwhelming Pizza in Miami without exception, I pledge to not eat pizza again until I go back to Brazil or maybe Italy:)
