Gabriel's Pizza....Where can I get good pizza

moep Sep 1, 2008 02:03 PM

I tried this pizza place when I visited Ottawa and it was the best pizza I have ever tried. The chees was gooie and the crust was perfect. I need to find a place like that here in Toronto. I live in Oshawa and work in Scarborough. Does anyone know of a grat pizza place?

      Googs, I'm not sure that is the type of pizza moep is looking for; Gabriel's is an Ottawa/Montreal-style pizza with a sort of sweet, yeasty crust and an enormous amount of cheese. While it's a fairly common style of pizza in Ottawa and Montreal, I don't think I've had anything similar yet in the GTA.

      You can find something similar at Chicago Style Pizza Shack in Hamilton (go for their thinner crusts, not the stuffed/chicago pizzas, but the crust really isn't the same. Unfortunately, this is pretty far from Oshawa/Scarborough.

        I'm familiar with Montreal pizza and how it differs from Toronto pizza.

          thanks for the thread googs......I will read over them and hopefully I will be satisfied.....if not next time I am going to Niagra I will checkout Tir's suggestion.....but that is far away.

      Danforth Pizza House has the cheese but not the sweet crust. If you are nearby it couldn't hurt to check, otherwise you might disappoint yourself if nothing but Montreal/Ottawa style pizza will do.

      But it's great old time pizza in its own right.
