Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria- Best Pie in Pizza Wasteland
This pizza was incredible. Let’s start with the crust. OMG, the crust. Thin but SOFT crust. The crust was tasty, light, and chewy. It was comparable to Naan bread. Perfectly charred. I ordered the Quattro Fromaggi ($13.75) and added pineapple. This was a white pizza. No tomato. The pineapple came crushed. There was lots of cheese. It was oily. Not ridiculously oily. But oily enough to make it flavourful. Fresh Basil came on the all the pizza’s we ordered. My partner ordered the Margherita ($12.00). What I liked about this pizza (authentic or not) was that there was a substantial amount of cheese per topping ratio. In fact, there was ample amount of cheese on the Margherita. I find this is what is missing from other Neapolitan pizzas in Toronto. The tomato sauce had loads of flavour without tasting “tinny” or acidic. Great friendly and non-intrusive service. Just a heads up that It is a self ordering restaurant and the food comes out very fast. The atmosphere is lively. I found the lighting could be a bit brighter. I think they are trying to create almost a bar atmosphere. Interesting that the best pizza in Toronto comes from a chain restaurant. Move over Terroni and Libretto. No more pretentious hipster pizza for this kid. I have found my new pizza spot.
