Peters Cajun Creole Delivered the Worst Pizza I have ever had

Trusting the chowhounds I ordered from Peters Cajun Creole tonight. Ordered the vegetarian cajun pizza. It was downright awful. No falvour, smelly chewy dough, mushy vegetables. Such a disappointment. What is going on with the chowhounds? How can anyone recommend this place. It's worst than any other pizza I have ever had. Please, for the sake of humanity, and tastebuds, stop recommending terrible places.

  1. Ever hear that expression "one mans meat is another mans poison"? Peter's pizza has been quite incredible in the past, I used to order from them frequently. The last pizza i ordered was incredibly expensive, and I have not ordered from them since. And yes, I did write a post about that experience. Pizza seems to be another one of those things that people have wildly divurgent opinions about, how else would places like Pizza pizza stay so popular. (and yes, I have seen it recommended on here!)

    1. I agree that people can have different tastes but I have never disliked a pizza so much. I threw the entire pizza away after eating one slice. I have tried all the chains like pizza pizza, pizza hut, pizza nova, etc. etc. etc. but never ever have I thrown away a pizza. This was the first time ever. I never thought pizza could be so bad. I wouldn't have posted if it was just not good. Perhaps the quality has gone down since you ordered last. I dare anyone on these boards to order the vegetarian cajun pizza and come back and tell me they were able to eat more than once slice.

      1. Lets be realistic here. If the pizza was so bad that it had to be thrown away, dont you think it was probably an isolated case? They couldn't stay in business this long, not to mention the positive reviews, if the pizzas were always so gross.

        I have enjoyed zah from there from time to time. I don't put it on my list of faves, but it is appetizing for sure.

        1. There is a quote from a movie in the 80's or something like that. "Sex is like pizza. Even when it's lousy it's still pretty good." So for WIGF to throw it out. It would have to be terrible on a level seldom achieved.


          1. What Davwud wrote was what prompted me to post in the first place. How can you go wrong with pizza. It's never so bad that you have to throw it away. BestandWorst may be right that it was an isolated case as they have stayed in business. Has anyone else tried the vegetarian cajun? BTW, I have tried Magic Oven and it is a 100 times better. But Magic Oven pizza always arrives cold. If they could deliver it hot, it would be really good.

              I believe a visit to City of Toronto's website might answer at least a few of your questions about Peter's Cajun Crap-ole. I've had one great pizza from Peter's about 2 years ago. I have never been able to recreate that experience. Both it and it's next door neighbour, Mr Tasty, have taken a steep dive in, I hesitate to say quality, but at least those people pleasing aspects that certain hole in the wall places can deliver. They both went from okay to no way in no time flat.

              1. re: Googs

                Mr Tasty changed hands a few years ago. The guy who ran it when it was pretty good now owns Joy Bistro on Queen East.

                I can't comment about Peters. I tried them a few years ago after reading some very good reviews. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't special enough to justify going back. I was curious about the dine safe link, but a search for Peter's came back empty. What's the story?

                    This link now works. I believe Jan 24 & 26 tells the whole story.
