Kudos: A pizza that promotes heart health

Talk about your unlikely bedfellows. Pizza teaming up with the American Heart Association to fight cardiovascular disease?

Indeed, say the folks at RedBrick Pizza, whose Millbrae and San Mateo locations will be donating a portion of every Tuesday’s proceeds to the cause now through Sept. 15, as part of the association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign.

The eatery prides itself on using the freshest ingredients to create a heart-healthy pizza that’s not only better for you, but still tastes delicious. It also wants to call attention to the fact that heart disease no longer affects mainly men.

Pizza just not your thing? Come in on Tuesdays anyway, and support the cause with RedBrick’s other menu items, like fire-roast sandwiches, fresh chopped salads or gelato for dessert.
