"The Subtle Kick: Green Chile Stuffed Crust at Gold Street Pizza & Brew"

Imagine this: you're cruising through the last triangle of your pizza, already reminiscing about the toppings that were, when suddenly—bam—a kick of green chile from the stuffed crust hits you. That's the kind of crafty twist that keeps the ABQ pizza scene on its toes, and it's what makes Gold Street Pizza & Brew a must-visit spot in the South Valley.

Chris Brito, the maestro behind this culinary concoction, plays it like a maestro—giving a nod to New Mexico's chili pride without letting it steal the entire show. "It's like a little high-five from the crust," Brito says, grinning, knowing that he's offering a pizza experience with a built-in encore.

Step into Gold Street and the vibe is as sunny as the New Mexican sky—airy, open, with tunes that make your hips think about dancing. And if you’re not in the mood for that subtle chili high-five? The menu's got versatility written all over it: from Zia fries loaded like a treasure chest, to Chicago beef that'll make a grown man weep with joy. And let’s not forget those fried ravioli and green chile cheese bites—because who said appetizers can't be the star of the show?

With a crust roster that reads like a pizza lover's dream—deep dish, thin, cauliflower, gluten-free, and yes, that green chile stuffed masterpiece—there's something for every craving. So come for the pizza, stay for the nachos, and leave with a playlist of memories where every song is about that perfect bite.
