I love pizza. If I could live off of pizza, I would. If calories didn’t count, I wouldn’t eat anything else. Pizza is life.
Now that you understand how much I love pizza, let me tell you about one of my new favourite pizza joints. Located downtown and on Taylor Avenue, Carbone Coal Fired Pizza is a unique experience using a coal fire oven to perfectly bake your pizza. Using fresh ingredients without fillers, the menu offers six hand crafted pizzas plus a make your own option. Carbone is not just pizza… Carbone offers an array of appetizers, salads, paninis, desserts and weekly drink specials. Carbone offers gluten free options; however, they let you know that there may be traces of gluten products in the oven.
Carbone also offers another unique dining experience – beer tables. There are three beer tables in the bar area that are connected to kegs in the back allowing you to pour your own beer. It is quite the sight to see. It is reccommended that you call ahead to reserve a table if you want to try it out.
With dine in, pick up and delivery (Taylor only – delivery area specific) options available, make sure you check out Carbone the next time you’re downtown or in the Waverley area. I’ve only been once and I’m hooked. For the posted prices, you can’t beat a freshly made pizza with amazing toppings.
