Brooklyn Pizza: UCF

I always said that a bad slice of pizza is still better than no pizza at all. So how fitting to kick off my new blogventure with the food so many people adore.

Today I went to Brooklyn Pizza on UCF's main campus.
Before we get to the product, lemme tell ya about what this place is like. You walk in the front door and find a seating area with a few tables and rock band set up on a flat screen.

Place your order and walk around a slight bend from the kitchen area to stumble upon what seems to be an abandoned night club.
This place is MASSIVE.
A movie screen hangs from the wall. Loads of tables surround the room and more video game systems like XBOX 360 and a Wii are hooked up to a couple other flat screens.

BP has been up and running at UCF for a little while now, so I was a bit surprised that it was so dead. Occupancy said around 290 heads could cram into this joint, but including me and the 3 friends I went with, there were maybe 10 other students eating. That naturally lead to a short wait time for our food to be served.

BP's lunch special is: two slices and a drink for 5 bucks--add a little extra dough (wocka wocka) if you wanna throw some pepperoni or any other toppings on there. The pieces are extremely big. If you're familiar with Lazy Moon pizza, it's about the same size. The crust is thin (New York style, duh) and the grease factor only came in at about one napkin's worth to sop up both huge portions. The toppings were plentiful and the cheese was nice and gooey. The only thing bad about my dining experience today was the chance encounter with a bald Scott Stapp and Creed playing on the big screen while I ate. They also gotcher parm, crushed red pep and oregano to add just as any good pizzeria should.

If you take a look at the picture, you can see my sunglasses resting on top of the crust...that can give you a good idea of just how big the portions were.

So, I'd say that if you're in the mood for pizza, and lets get real, who isn't--I'd def. give this place a try. Price is right, lotsa entertainment factors to add to the visit, and to top it off, Shakira's video for She Wolf was playing on the big screen too, so you got yer dessert right there.
