Brick House Pizza opens up shop in Streetsville
Tuesday, Feb. 26th marked the grand opening of the newest restaurant inMississauga, the Brick House Pizza Co. Hazel McCallion was in attendance as part of the festivities, which also included a red carpet, champagne and complimentary pizza being handed out next door at Saucy. About 100 people were there to celebrate and take in all the excitement.
Just like that, the debate for the best pizza in Mississauga is renewed. Brick House is a cut above above other places that serve pizza, offering only homemade, fresh ingredients. But more than just ingredients, all their pizzas get baked in a blazing wood fire oven.
"Fresh ingredients, everything homemade, made from scratch with talented executive chefs," said Owner Randy Drohan. "We’re going against the grain and all the commercial type pizzeria places so that’s why everything that we do is homemade, fresh, and authentic, including a wood fired oven."
The Brick House offers an assortment of pizzas: The Maui Wowie ( charred pineapple, roasted peppers, bacon and capicola ham), Salty Swine ( prosciutto, mushrooms, green olives, olive oil and shaved parmesan) and owner Randy Drohan’s personal favorite, the Three Little Pigs ( bacon, sausage and pepperoni). The Brick House has something for everyone.
And for Drohan, this grand opening is not just the beginning of any old business venture; rather, it’s the culmination of a dream between three brothers that came true. The brothers have been joined by lifelong friends Michael Couch and Sean Atkins in this new adventure.
Owner Randy Drohan, along with brothers Robin and Rocky, all shared in a vision of owning a pizzeria in Streetsville, and for many years seemed to be right on the brink. They tinkered with the idea of adding a pizza offering to the Cock and Pheasant when they owned it, but it just wasn’t quite right. After they sold it in 2009, the dream never wavered, and now the fruit has blossomed.
"This is our hometown. Our family grew up here, and pretty much lives here still," says Robin Drohan. "We have quite a few family and friends here to support us and help us get started."
Following the success of Saucy, the Drohan’s other restaurant, which has been a Streetsville mainstay since opening up 13 years ago, the Brick House Pizza Co. is sure to follow in its lore and lustre. With an emphasis on quality food and a commitment to serving theVillageofStreetsville, The Brick House is a welcome addition.
And for Randy Drohan, the aspect of business and community is an essential ingredient.
"We put a lot of passion into the place and we hope people enjoy our product."
