UPDATE: Paulie Gee's is no longer offering brunch service.
The last thing I wanted for brunch yesterday was more pizza. I spent all day Saturday prepping for, cooking, and cleaning up a nine-pie pizza bridal shower.* But ... but ...
The Monte Christo pizza ($15) at Paulie Gee's new brunch service is outrageously good. Just when I thought I didn't want to eat another bite of the crusty, saucey, cheesy stuff for at least another week, this amazing combination of salty-sweet, crisp-chewy pizza awesomeness pulled me right back in. Made with mild gouda, ham, and a drizzle of maple syrup, it really is reminiscent of the sandwich it's named for.
Paulie Gee's started Sunday brunch service yesterday. It's on Sundays and only on Sundays — 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. No reservations, no takeout.
I've got to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of egg pizzas. So you'll rarely find me at a pizza brunch. But this? This, my friends, is a brunch pizza that has me looking forward to next Sunday already.
* More on that when I finish editing my photos from Saturday.
UPDATE: PAULIE GEE'S IS NO LONGER SERVING BRUNCH.
