Best WOOD FIRED pizza in TO?

Recyclor Jun 18, 2008 10:38 AM

Hi all, I've given up on finding awsome pizza in general, I like Terroni and some others but I still don't find myself craving anyone in particular, but, wood oven pizza if done well, which can be alot of different ways, can really be something special in it's own right...any faves?

Cheers!

    I really like Dino's, he has great thin crust and a nice sauce and he is a nice guy to boot. Call ahead if you want a pizza fast. I recommend his margherita pizza.

      Marcello's on St. Clair is great.

        he has decent pizza but it's way overpriced for what he gives - the pizzas are puny

          What change of ownership?

            I must agree.

            The pizza's at Dino's are $16.99 for a Medium, and they are absolutely tiny.

            As soon as you pick up the box and it feels like theres nothing in it, I right away felt remorse.

            sure it tastes decent, but for that price, theres much better in the area... I'd rather go to Bom Apetite next door and get a whole chicken for $10 flat

            Oh, and if you want a laugh, check out Dino's prices for a pound of frozen wings... $12.99

            What a joke

              I'm curious what other places in the area compare to Dino's and are they wood fired?

            Hmmm... interesting. I drive by there all the time. I was wondering after the change of ownership if the quality was still there?
            Any more info?

              Here's a second vote for Dino's on the Queensway.

                  My brother recently organized an extended family get together around one of these public pizza ovens. Great idea and the results were fantastic.
