Pizza hater no more

Inside a packed Pizzeria Libretto, 221 Ossington Ave.

“Who doesn’t like pizza?” Everybody would say.

Past Melissa would say: “I don’t. What’s with all of the dough and the random stuff on top? That’s just weird.”

Today’s Melissa says: “Who doesn’t like pizza? Uh, anyone who hasn’t been to Pizzeria Libretto.”

On Sunday night, patrons waited for at least an hour for a table or to pick-up a pizza at this west-end resto, located near Dundas and Ossington. (After 6 p.m., there is always a wait.)

While Sean and I waited for our pies which are cooked with organic ingredents in their wood-fired oven, the staff served us bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Our orders:

– Ontario prosciutto and arugula with garlic, tomato, oregano and parmigiano reggiano ($15)

– Hot peppers, tomato, house-made sausage, mozzarella ($16)

Best pizza that I’ve ever tasted in Toronto. Flavourful. Thin, soft crust. Fresh, abundant toppings. Ate a whole pie.

Info: 221 Ossington, 416-532-8000; open daily from 12-11 p.m.; on Sundays, 4-11 p.m.
