Brazilian Pizza

Harlan | Nov 7, 2004 05:28 PM

Based on a recommendation, I stopped in today at Buona Pizza in Arlington, which in addition to a more typical selection of pizzeria items, has a list of Brazilian pizza variations, along with quite a few "pasteles" (savory pastries) and tropical drinks. The owner is a chatty young Pakistani man named Ali whose wife is Brazilian.

I've only had one pizza there, one that will only be appreciated by those who like sweet pizzas, like Hawaiian. This one, the Tropical Pizza, has dried plums, cherries, pineapple, peach, guava, and tomato underneath mozzarella and cheddar. I liked it much.

The "Portuguese Pizza" has black olives, onions, eggs, mozzarella, oregano, and ham. There's a shrimp pizza and a fried vegetable one. Those and four others complete the Brazilian list.

There are also strombolis, the pasteles I mentioned, pastas, subs, and salads. There are also tropical juices and sodas.

There are three four-top tables. Two computers are available at the window counter for Internet access.

Buona Pizza is at 2609 Columbia Pike, at Cleveland Street across from Domino's Pizza and in the same row as Attila's.
