Everyone loves good pizza, and fortunately for us, we have lots to choose from in Orange County. One of the most unique experiences my family had recently was at a FRESH BROTHERS PIZZA. Yes, there was the usual menu tasting, but they have special events for kids called Make-Your-Own-Pizza Play Dates. At the play date, kids can have fun making their own pizzas starting with decorating their pizza boxes with stickers, markers, and crayons. The children have full control of what goes on their pizza like how much sauce and how much toppings. They want extra cheese? No problem. Cheese only? Sure. Maybe they want to make a pizza face with pepperoni. It is totally okay to play with their food this time.
They don't have to be bored waiting for their food, because they get to play with real pizza dough. There are rollers and cutters. They can even practice kneading and tossing the dough. A staff member is there to entertain them as well as face paint. In no time, their personalized and customized pizzas were delivered hot in the boxes they decorated. My kids loved it!
Other items we tried were their vegetarian Fresh Momma's Favorite Pizza with spinach, mushrooms, pesto and garlic. You can also get it with chicken. We ordered half Da Works and half BBQ chicken on their gluten-free crust. Both were delicious. They have a great selection of salads and pizzas to choose from. If you want something sweet at the end, their Sweet Knots are rolled cinnamon sugar drizzled with icing and served warm. A gluten-free Chocolate Brownie is on there too. The big surprise item for me is their Meatball Slider which comes on a King's Hawaiian Sweet Roll. They are super tasty and savory, and you can get a three pack for $8.49.
Fresh Brothers offers a casual dining experience. Their new Newport Mesa location has outside seating, but I think some of them have indoor seating. Play Dates are held Monday through Friday between 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm. It comes with a T-shirt as well as a drink for each kid!
