On my recent trip to Sandusky, Ohio, we stopped at a local pizza place for dinner. We decided to try The Brick Oven Bistro, who is locally known for their “brick oven pizza”, a try while we were in town.

It was a Friday night when we dined, and thankfully wasn’t too crowded. It’s not a very large place, but there’s a bar area, a separate dining area as well as outdoor seating when the weather cooperates. We were immediately seated and had a wonderful server who took care of us. She was able to explain the options on the menu, answer our questions, and kept checking on us to make sure we were all set.

We started with some awesome appetizers which were worth the visit alone. Here’s what we ordered!

We had an order of Bruschetta, which consists of oven-toasted ciabatta topped with marinated tomatoes, capers, red onion and fresh basil, and the Stuffed Jalapenos, which were fresh jalapenos, with a blend of their own Italian sausage, peppers, onion, cream cheese & fresh herbs. I loved the crunchy bread that stayed toasted even with the toppings covering it. And the jalapenos were oven baked, so a little better for you…plus they have fresh herbs, that’s almost like a salad right?

For dinner, we ordered 2 of their pizzas, the Margherita and the Pear Gorgonzola. The Margherita is marinated tomatoes, capers, onion, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella, provolone, parmesan & olive oil. The other pizza, the Pear Gogonzola, is olive oil, fresh Bartlett pear, gorgonzola cheese, bacon, red onion, arugula, candied walnuts & balsamic reduction. Both were delicious and gone quickly! The dough was the perfect balance of crispy edges but soft chewy insides. And the toppings played off each other and still blended so well. We laughed that we ordered “girly pizzas” since our guys weren’t along for the meal but we’d order them again next time!

We will definitely be stopping back by The Brick Oven Bistro the next time we’re in Sandusky. You should too, it’s not far from Cedar Point if you’re there for a visit. And don’t forget, they have a full bar and a nice beer and wine selection too.
