Sherman's Food Adventures: New Bridge Pizza

New Bridge Pizza

For dinner we decided to get some pizza as the last time we had it was back in Rome.  But instead of staying within the touristy spots or going for something that was considered traditional, we went new school with New Bridge Pizza that was a little bit out of the busy square.  The place is certainly modern with young hip staff and solid beats.  Love the pricing too as it is reasonable.  I guess the biggest question is what about the food?  Well, they do state on their webpage that they are both traditional and innovative.  Also, I apologize for the crappy pics as my camera was on the wrong setting!  Doh!

Well interestingly enough, it started off with the Caesar Salad which was actually more expensive than the rest of the food.  We were a bit confused at first but then discovered the bevy of sliced fried chicken breast hidden beneath the combination of parmesan, tomatoes, romaine, avocado and olives.  Yes, this was their interpretation of a Caesar and I didn't mind it.  It certainly ate like a meal with tender pieces of crispy seasoned chicken.  The ingredients were fresh and there was enough flavourful dressing that had a nice saltiness to it.

As for the pizzas, we had the Prosciutto Cotto et Funghi that featured ham and mushrooms with tomato sauce and mozzarella.  The crust was quite good with crunchy edges that had sufficient leoparding from their high-powered electric ovens.  There was nuttiness to it and it was seasoned properly.  Naturally, the crust got more tender closer to the centre, but that is expected and normal.  Tomato sauce was balanced and the amount of toppings were enough to keep every bite interesting.

We also got the Maialona which was their meat lovers consisting of tomato sauce, mozzarella, hot dog pieces, spicy salami, roasted ham and sausage.  Naturally, with all these toppings, the pizza was rather robust and filling.  I found the slices of sausage to be appealingly spicy and meaty.  Yep, there was actually hot dog pieces on the pizza and this is where the modern part comes in because no traditional pizza would have that!   I liked this one since it was all meat and the kids agreed.

Last pizza was the Capricciosa with tomato sauce, mozzarella, artichokes, fresh mushrooms, spicy salami, roasted ham.  This was somewhat of a mix between the first 2 pizzas and benefited from the spice from the salami.  Adding in artichokes provided a bit of tang and freshness.  Overall, the pizza here at New Bridge gives respect to tradition with a wonderful crust and delicious tomato sauce.  It does do some modern takes on things and that is not necessarily a bad thing.  Prices are reasonable too.

The Good:
- Solid pizzas
- Reasonable-pricing
- Nice people

The Bad:
- May offend some traditionalists
