Tommy's Coal Fired Pizza, Brick, NJ

Whenever I go to a new pizza place, with out-of-the ordinary selections, the first thing I look for is goat cheese. I love goat cheese on pizza, and with anything else for that matter. No goat cheese to be found, so points off for that.

But points back for this:

Mr. C's Jersey Shore Clam Pie
"Baby Clam, Roasted Leeks, Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese, Creme Fresh, Chopped Italian Parsley & Fresh Black Pepper"

Clams on pizza? Never had that, but it sounds good.

Black & Blue, Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken
"Blue Cheese Crumbles & Herb Seasoned Croutons with Classic Caesar Dressing"

If I can't have goat cheese, I'll settle for blue cheese crumbs, which made the Caesar salad better than the average Caesar. I had to search high and low for a crouton, and I'm not sure I found one, because the chicken chunks were cut to the size and shape of croutons.

As for the pizza, the crust was a bit on the soggy side, perhaps due to the clam juice. Otherwise, it was an interesting flavor I hadn't tasted on a pizza before.

The service was pleasant and attentive, but the pizza came too soon while we were still working on the salads.

Note to Tommy: Get a pizza with goat cheese on the menu, and I'll be back.
