Anybody who has internalized the concept of maximal meat has probably stopped by a Brazilian-style rodizio restaurant at one time or another, an establishment that will serve you bits of barbecued cow flesh, sliced off of menacing-looking skewers, until you explode. It can be kind of plain Brazilian barbecue, but it does the job. Now comes Bella Vista, in a corner of Culver City that has become more or less Little Brazil, which adapts the rodizio concept to pizza instead of charcoal-grilled animal. What this means is that every few minutes a waitress comes around to your table with a plateful of thin wedges of pizza topped with smoked sausage and hearts of palm, grilled eggplant with green olives, beef stroganoff with potato sticks, zucchini with pesto, chicken with corn, and fried bananas, among many, many things, which are dealt onto your plate almost like cards. As an idea, rodizio pizza is a wonderful thing, an opportunity to taste a lot more pizza than is generally healthy or prudent. In practice, the pizza tends to be a bit too long from the oven, and what you're tasting can occasionally seem like a science experiment in degrees of reheating than it does in a primer in the flavors of Brazil. But for $14.99 a person, what the hell.
