Toronto: VPN Pie at Pizzeria Libretto

Slice Natasha Pickowicz 15 comments

From the imported ingredients to fastidious cooking methodology, Libretto is dedicated to Naples-style authenticity. They claim to bake their pies in less than 90 seconds in a 900 degree wood-burning oven (hand-built by a 3rd generation pizza oven maker in Naples, then delivered to Ontario). The pizza had all the hallmarks of a striking Napoletean pie: a blistered, slightly speckled crust made with naturally leavened Italian Caputo dopio zero flour, topped with a translucent, vermillion layer of San Marzano tomato sauce.

At The Prospector in Twain Harte, California, the pizza matches the beauty of the surrounding environment. More

Orange County, California: Pizza e Vino

Slice L.A. Pizza Maven 16 comments

Pizzaphilia, the tenacious, gastronomic syndrome with which I've been afflicted for nearly my entire life, compelled me to drive down to Orange County one recent Saturday afternoon. I made this trip from LA knowing full well that I would likely encounter mind-numbing freeway traffic because I was craving a new pizza experience, and Pizza e Vino, only the second VPN-certified restaurant in Southern California, was calling me.
