Great Regina Style Pizza
I am new to Regina (from Vancouver) and recently tried the famous Regina Style Pizzas at a couple of the better known pizza restaurants.
The pizzas were excellent !
The spinach & feta was out of this world ! I then tried a salami , ham & green pepper that was terrific.
The Regina syle pizzas have a thicker crust and a lot of toppings compared with some of the thin pizzas with finely chopped meat and vegetable toppings.
Wow, I am from Regina (haven't lived there for 10 years) but I have never heard of Regina Style Pizzas. Which places specifically did you enjoy?
Houston's is a family favorite and I went to school with the original owner's daughter. We were great friends in Elementary school, and every year for her birthday our whole class got pizza. I try to eat it every time I go back for a visit!
I also really loved Western Pizza. Their spaghetti pizza sounds awful but was actually amazing (although not the healthiest thing ever).
From having tried Western (here in Calgary) I'd say that "Regina style" is what we call Greek pizza in Calgary, or as one poster here termed it, "bar pizza.' The crust is risen and is like a foccaccia; the best ones (my fave is Nick's here) are buttery-crisp on the outside, slightly fluffy (but NOT BREADY) inside; toppings are massive. The sauce is Greek-accented with a whisper of cinnamon.
Try Copper Kettle, all their pizzas are good, but their spinach and feta is thier signature pie. Houstan Hill Avenue is very good. Also Trifons is very good for "regina" pies. If you want a slightlyt different pizza, the Freehouse BBQ Chicken is very good, and Beer Brothers has a pulled pork and pickled cabbabe pizza that's one of my favourites.
I was back in Regina this weekend and had a Houston's Spinach and Feta Pizza (along with some Ceasar salad, and rose penne pasta). It was all amazing!
There are a lot of good Greek-style pizza joints in Regina, but the Western Pizza on 9th Avenue North has fantastic pizza.
