Touted as Toronto’s only Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, this 25-seat spot has been standing room only since it opened its doors. These over-the-top ooey-gooey pies are perhaps a reaction to years of Neapolitan domination over the city’s pizza scene. Customers can create their own pie or choose one of three pre-designed ones crammed with molten pizza stuff three inches deep, including the Jalapeno Blue chockful of blue cheese, jalapeno peppers, bacon and Italian sausage. Unfortunately the crust containing it all is hard—not bready, porous or spongy—just hard. A bank of electric pizza ovens spews heat into the tiny dining room; thank goodness for cold draft beer, and fresh air courtesy of a constant stream of take-out customers. The vibe and aesthetic is rough and tumble with graffiti art, kids’ colouring sheet pizza portraits and a couple of big screen TVs. Schoolhouse pendant lamps hang over the simple wooden bar, and a hot-pink neon glow adds to the fun atmosphere of this Chucky Cheese for millennials.
