Brick Oven Pizza Price: $4 to $36 Scoping it out: Owned for more than a quarter of a century by the Demoss family, Brick Oven Pizza changed hands last March, but the recipes seem to be the same -- and that's a very good thing. The crust is light (available in white or wheat), toppings are liberal and the sauce is mellow and pleasing. The restaurant itself is cute and clean, with red-and-white checkered tablecloths and ample seating. You may want your order to go, which is 5% to 10% less expensive. And that makes a difference when pizzas are pricey to begin with. We liked . . . the crust, which is brushed with garlic and oil. We didn't like . . . the higher price for eating in. Is this a way to discourage tourists? Brick Oven Pizza, 2-2255 Kaumualii Highway (Route 50), Kalaheo; (808) 332-8561.
