Pizza Can you help me find this ??
On a recent trip to Montreal, a cousin of mine picked up a slab of pizza that I have never seen before and it was terrific. A large suquare of what was really a thick bread abour one inch high or a little more and simply spread on top with a tomatoe sauce. I would love trying to make it at home here in British Columbia, but need a receipe for the bread crust. Can anyone help?? What is it called ?? No one out here has a clue what I am talking about.
Did they buy it from the supermarket? If it is what I am thinking of, the crust is more like a foccacia?
Pizza al taglio. I think it's also called Roman-style pizza. It's usually sold in bakeries.
EDIT: Sorry I read too fast. What you had is bakery pizza. It's a version of pizza al taglio, but without all the toppings.
RE-EDIT: That specific version of pizza al taglio is called pizza rossa.
Ooh, I know what this is! Strangely enough, this was, I think, the first unfamiliar foodstuff I got familiar with when I moved here to Montreal from BC (the island) a few years ago. I got it from a bakery on St Laurent in Little Italy - it's very small (the bakery, not the pizza) and is either called Roma or is next to a cafe called Roma. I spent a summer living on this stuff, YUM.
Edit: Just checked, the place is Boulangerie/Patisserie Roma.
