There is a little pizza place just around the corner from two of my sisters’ apartments (they live in neighbouring buildings = cute!) that is serving up thin crust Neapolitan style pizza. It is a tiny little place that doesn’t stand out from the busy traffic at the corner of Bathurst and St. Clair. There is no website and it recently has added a phone number to its menu which is most likely the owner’s cell phone number because it is scribbled on each menu in pen. If you didn’t know about it you probably wouldn’t notice it or even try it out. But now you know about it, please check it out!
A few weeks ago we had a family dinner in Toronto at Theresa’s apartment and bought two different types of pizza: Wild Funghi (above left) and Canadese (above right). The Wild Funghi had san marzano tomato sauce, oyster mushrooms, portobello, shitake mushrooms, mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese. The Canadese had san marzano tomato sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms (none on ours), pepperoni and maple wood smoked bacon.
I don’t know which one I liked more. The combination of mushrooms on the Wild Funghi pizza was meaty and earthy but also creamy from the interplay of two cheeses. The Canadese was meaty, smoky and deliciously fatty – all the things pizza should be. Life is hard when you have two delicious pizzas in front of you and you don’t know which one is better.
They have 17 different pizzas and I want to try them all and I think you should too! Swing by the restaurant or give them a call at 647-706-8706.
