Pizza In YYC

Hot Dining: Without Papers

Open the red door off 9th Avenue and ascend the stairs to a loud, lively room packed with pizza aficianados. There’ll be Spaghetti Westerns playing on the walls, a bustle of pizzas being pressed and fired, and a casual, stuff-your-face attitude. This is Without Papers, the cheeky pizzeria brought to you by the boys of Sugo, the Italian restaurant on the ground floor. 1216 – 9 Ave SE (upstairs), 403-457-1154. –John Gilchrist

Hot Dining: Top Five Pizza Joints

by John Gilchrist

Top 5 Pizza Joints

  1. Pulcinella Domenic Tudda’s white-on-black Kensington pizzeria bakes pizzas in the Neapolitan style—hot, soft-crusted and perfect with a glass of wine from his long Italian list.
  2. Famoso Neapolitan Pizza Famoso does Neapolitan pizza in a casual way—order, grab a seat and wait a minute. Enjoy the controlled chaos and good pizza for a good price.
  3. Rea’s Italian Cucina Rea’s serves a full Italian menu but we seldom get past their old-school, Roman-style pizza. We could live on the crust-aged dough alone.
  4. Il Centro Our favourite pizza at Il Centro is topped with crispy pancetta and mushrooms, a light dusting of cheese and a generous coating of tomato sauce. Chef Fedele Ricioppo always does it right.
  5. Una Pizza + Wine This contemporary Mediterranean restaurant rocks with energy and tops pizza with roasted fennel sausage and wilted leeks or Swiss chard and double-smoked bacon.
