Coal Workers: Bricco Coal Fired Pizza in Westmont

Coal burns very hot, so it takes an attentive pizzamaker to tend a pie in a coal-burning oven. Bricco Coal Fired Pizza in Westmont does the job well.

Bricco Coal Fired Pizza
Westmont
128 Haddon Avenue
856-477-2233

Open: Lunch and dinner, daily

Price: $$ BYO

Style: A modern pizza parlor serving traditional Neapolitan-style pizzas. The dining room, which overlooks the coal-fired oven, is outfitted with wood tables, metal chairs, wood floors and a black-and-white photo mural.

The Scoop: Vincenzo Barone opened Bricco in April 2014. He also owns Barone’s Tuscan Grill in Moorestown and is part of the family behind Collingswood’s long-running Villa Barone.

The Menu: Start with the stuffed long hot peppers, coal-fired wings or a simple yet satisfying chopped salad. Design your own pie or choose from the 13 on the menu. All come out thin and crispy, in 12- or 16-inch sizes. Standouts include a classic Margherita; pesto with semi-dried tomatoes (pictured); or the rabe, with broccoli rabe, smoked mozzarella, fennel and sausage. The menu offers seven panini, including cheesesteak, veggie and meatball. For dessert, try the deep-fried zeppoli with nutella.

Heads Up: The staff will give children small balls of raw dough to play with while waiting for their food.
