Got the housemade sausage. Good cheese, sausage, and crust. No tomato sauce? That’s gonna take it down me, Frankie.

Alright Frankie we are at Libretto pizzeria -> review time Jan 2nd 2:00pm -> here to review this Neapolitan style pizza -> definitely what el’ presidente would call fancy pizza -> quick back story here -> Chef Rocco Agostino and Max Rimaldi opened the first Pizzeria Libretto on Ossington Avenue in 2008, bringing Neapolitan pizzas to the community. Today we are reviewing the Pearl st. Location. Their goal was to open a local restaurant in their neighbourhood that offered both quality and value. Both born in Toronto, by Italian-Immigrant parents, their cuisine is built upon the fundamental views instilled in them since childhood, of prizing seasonal ingredients, simplicity, and deliciousness. Over a decade later, after having opened multiple locations and serving millions of pizzas, their pies still remain at the top of their game. Chef Rocco and Max remain rooted in their community, taking part in various community initiatives. For the rest of 2020, proceeds from the weekly pizza feature go to Food Share programs in Toronto. Such a great Canadian success story it’s heart warming but we review honestly Frankie and we don’t let feelings get in the way -> we review pizza -> one bite everyone knows the rules -> and we are tough judges and when it’s a Neapolitan style it’s rare they can get over 6.9 and that’s a sexual number and this is a kids show so sometimes they get a 6.8 just to keep it decent but I knew that this one was going to be different from the first bite I took the sauce was so fresh and sweet-> the undercarriage had the perfect amount of char-> it did have flop ... to be expected from a Neapolitan style pizza. When we first started eating the pizza it was definitely in the 9’s but as We continued to eat it we finally settled on a 9.6 which is incredibly high for Neapolitan style -> we know Frankie -> but every bite was better than the last and the score just kept going up with every bite we took - we usually-> bite it (1 to 10 / one bite / everyone knows the rules / bite it / score it -> 1 thru 10 -> here we go) but this one was tough ~> 9.6 (high score but professional score) We eat a lot of pizza and we are very critical on our pizzas -> this is among the best pizzas we have ever had 9.6 that’s a review!

Best pizza sauce I’ve ever had - could literally taste the tomatoes. Looks like it’s overloaded on the sauce but it honestly wasn’t overloaded on the sauce. The cheese was on point and definitely present. If there was more crunch to the actual pizza not the crust it would’ve been in the 9’s club.

Reviewing - NY style Pizza NY Cheese - 4.2 Funghi Napoleon style - 8.1 This is a Napoleon Style Pizza place that has also started serving NY style pizzas recently. I have tried their Funghi pizza before and it tasted great! This time I got the New York Style Cheese Pizza and it didn’t taste good. The corners were very chewy and they added some cheese on top that took away the flavor of the pizza. I could not taste the sauce.

Crust was too chewy- probably because the pizza came cold. Sauce was a bit too acidic

So I saw the scores in this city in general and figured everyone was just drinking too much beer ey. But turns out this place holds its own! I didn’t ask it to be crispy but still, great dough, little flop and super tasty. (I did this off the regular margarita but the pepperoni photographed better). Worth stopping by...Toronto is pizza strong

Pizza is very fluffy and light, huge flavour in the pepperoni, nice tang in the sauce, doughy crust. Overall good slice

Ok let me preface this review with "This is the first True neapolitan approved pizza I have tried. " I was brought up on thick dough crusts overloaded with cheese and a plethora of meaty / not so traditional toppings. That said this was great Pizza. The crust had some char and a very nice tooth to it. Gave that fresh baked bread taste and feel. The sauce tasted like tomatoes from a garden, not a canned facsimile of tomatoes. The cheese was fresh and tasty, more of a curd then covering the pizza. A few hits of basil and there you have it. Good, solid taste and very enjoyable. I still looking for my non traditional chewy cheesy perfect pie.
