  1. Terroni's C't Mang thin crust pizza.

    1. A few years back I had a really good Gorgonzola & Pear pizza at Il Fornello.
      I just checked their menu online and it's still on it..........

      Pizza Gorgonzola
      Red wine caramel pears, gorgonzola, caramelized
      onions, walnuts, lemon dressed arugula

        Had the Il Fornello pizza couple a months ago. It was just OK. Not enough cheese for my liking. It ended up being too sweet.

        1. re: sylvrgirl

          Il Fornello's the McDonalds of Toronto's Italian food :(

          i think that most locations still import their food from a central kitchen.

        2. I love the CT Mang pizza at Terroni but it is incredibly rich! Great sharing pizza!

          1. Filipo's on St Clair West had a fig and gargozola pizza as their special today...Miranda

              coca, a spanish restaurant on queen west does a apple, carmelized onion and gorgenzola coca (spanish baked flatbread).

              It is not exactly what you want, but it is delicious

                Second this recommendation. Best I''ve had in Toronto.
                Also have tried the Il Fornello. Not the best, but quite serviceable. Still worth a try.

                  On a similar note, I tried the il Fornello fig pizza (prosciutto, honey figs, mascarpone, grana padano, lemon dressed arugula) at their sweet Queen's Quay lounge once and it was prettty good!

                  1. re: Chester Eleganté

                    Agreed! I'm not a pizza connoisseur but have tried the Il Fornello one and the one at Terroni. Both are good but the mix of ingredients on the Il Fornello one is better (sweeter, creamer).
