|North of Brooklyn pizzeria - Sign|
Toronto has some good pizza. The best before today was Librettos. The crust was a bit charred in a couple of places but that aside, it was amazing. What does that mean?
1. Thin crust not bready
2. Not soggy... i.e centre is basically a pasta noodle.
3. Fresh sauce
4. Fresh toppings
5. Nice bubbly, airy, crispy edge crust that you actually want to eat.
Not hard right? Every slice place in New York can do it. mmmmm so for the last couple of months I've been answering the ever frequent question 'where do you want to eat?' somewhere with GOOD pizza or NY style pizza...(that or Thai to be frank)
So after alot of Thai food, my cousins excitedly let me know over dinner at Bent, you have to try this pizza joint I found on Palmerston. North of Brooklyn.
Coincidentally, we were in the area the NEXT day house hunting. After the 200th disappointing view of a overpriced shoebox, I suggested we hop over a few blocks for za!!! Now the only downside of this place. No parking. It is a small place on the east face, north of the corner. So no stopping either. Typical of the Bellwoods and Little Italy place, congestion on Saturday was brutal. I ended up having to hop in to get our pizza while D circled the block. We ate it off our laps as we drove home and it was still awesome.

Anyhoo, I will definitely be back. There is some limited seating inside if you're lucky to get parking. You can watch the endless pies being freshly assembled as you eat.
Food: Great options without over complicating what should be great pizza.
Ambiance: Industrial casual pizza slice joint
Staff: Efficient and helpful
Cost: $$$ for slice
