Comments: Parking is far too tight for the entire Plaza. Definitely not a place for Wine with a limited selection, so I see why they seem to now go by Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria instead of Debut Fine Wine and Grill – Brick Oven Pizza. Good Service and filling, tasty Pizzas. Love the incorporation of spice. Affordable prices. Simple, cosy spot for lunch.
Suga visited Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria two Saturdays ago at about 3:45 pm.
Even though they are known mainly for Pizza and that is what I went there for, I browsed their menu and it had a variety of items other than Pizza at affordable prices. Appetizers such as Buffalo Wings, Spicy Nachos, Mozzarella sticks, Calamari and more are available in the range of $648 – $1298JMD.
There are Paninis for $998 – $1198JMD, Salads for $698 – $798JMD and Pastas for $1698 – $1998JMD.
Jamaican Specialties such as Jerked Chicken, Escoveitched and Steamed Fish, Pepper Shrimp and more are available for under $3000JMD.
Vegetarians are not left out. There are Veggie Cheese Kebabs, Veggie Pizza options and more. The Pizza Siciliana (Grilled Eggplant, capers, tomato sauce, mozzarella) and Pizza Manchurian (Veggie balls, tomato sauce, mozzarella) look like a treat, whether you are Vegetarian or not.
Most importantly, quite a variety of Pizzas are available in the range of $1398 – $1898JMD. You can pick, choose and refuse from the traditional Pepperoni, Hawaiian, Margherita and Jerk Chicken Pizzas or you can go with Pizzas that have more divine toppings such as the Pacifica (Smoked Pacific Salmon, capers, sour cream, tomato sauce) and Pizza Marinara (Shrimp, Calamari, Fish, tomato sauce and cheese). You can also customize your own Pizza with protein and veggies.
Dessert is available as well, but with limited options.
It was quite lonely when my husband, Randy and I went there, but we were told by our hospitable hostess that the place really comes alive at night and when the cruise ships come in. The Cafe that was two shops down
got a lot of traffic when I was there though.
Our Pizzas arrived within 20 minutes of ordering. Randy, who loves spice thoroughly enjoyed his Indian Spiced Chicken Pizza. I can confirm it was as good as it looks. It was a mouthful of spicy, flavourful and cheesy goodness, not just because I tasted it, but because he finished eating his Pizza before me. That’s a record! Indians own the restaurant, hence a few dishes showcasing Indian cuisine and the incorporation of Indian spices and flavoured protein toppings on the Pizzas.
I had the Pizza Meatza, that was like a full house. It was stacked with Jerk Chicken, Pepperoni, Jerk Sausage and Onion. Scrumptious!
Refreshing Red Stripe Beers were the perfect combo with our Pizzas. Pizzas from Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria are #SugaEndorsed.

MidiCi Fort Lauderdale makes wood-fired Neapolitan Pizzas. Neapolitan Pizzas are authentic Italian style Pizzas that are made with San Marzano tomatoes grown on volcanic plains in Italy and Mozzarella cheese made with milk from water buffalo that are raised in the marshlands of Italy. The Mozzarella cheese used is known as ‘white gold’ because of its high premium quality and taste.
MidiCi has a Daily Happy Hour from 3-7pm and all day on Thursdays. They also do Wine and Cheese on Wednesdays for $19.95USD.
They have quite a salivating Instagram page. Looks like they are worth a try on my next trip!

Suga finally got her hands on Ashebre Gourmet Condiments’ Spicy Basil Pesto sauce. Ashebre Gourmet Condiments is from Ashebre, The Virtual Restaurant led by local Executive Culinary Artist, Oji Jaja.
Now and then you will see a few stocked in Loshusan Supermarket. I glimpsed it somewhere else too, but the location has slipped from my memory.
I was happy with how long Ashebre’s 10oz Spicy Basil Pesto lasted. I made Chicken and Shrimp Pesto Pasta for two, as well as 5 mini Pesto Pizzas made from Whole Wheat Pita Bread over two weekends.
My husband and I enjoyed it. It is one of the healthiest Pestos that I have seen on the market with only 10% Saturated Fat and I loved and appreciated that it wasn’t drenched in Olive oil. It was dairy free and fresh with it’s own unique herby, taste.
Other Jamaican Branded Pestos that are #sugaendorsed are Christina Simonitsch’s Pesto from Simo’s Bread and Catering, who is currently away to return September and none other than, Stush in the Bush’s Pesto.
If you get your hands on any of their Pestos, be sure to try my Recipe for your Personal Chicken Pesto Pizza!

Season the Chicken with Jerk seasoning, Garlic powder, Paprika, Black pepper and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free seasoning blend.
Bake the Chicken for about 12 to 15 mins (depending on your oven and the thickness of the Chicken Breast), ensuring that you flip sides along the way until juices run clear and it remains tender.
Leave strips to cool for about 5 minutes, then cut up into smaller pieces.
2. As the Chicken is baking, prep your Pizza
Spread the Pesto sauce evenly on the the Pita Bread.
Add Cheese, Onion and chopped Tomato.
3. After the Chicken has cooled for about 5 minutes and it is cut into smaller pieces, turn up the oven to 400°F.
4. Place the layered Pita Bread in the Oven and as the Cheese begins to melt, add the Chicken and sprinkle a bit more Cheese on top.
Watch until it melts, then remove the Pizza from the oven. It just takes a few minutes!
