    Sigh. I wish I wasn’t too lazy to drive up there. I can’t stop thinking about wood-fired pizza after making the marmalade the other day.

    That pizza looks like the ones I grew up with (I’m 99% Scottish-Canadian…we had very generous Italian neighbours). Too bad we’re so far away… maybe we’ll have to work in a post-thanksgiving trip there and to the Italian Store (my fave place for ceramic platters).

    Love our Italian centre here in Edmonton too. It does feel like I am on vacation while in there, they have the most terrific deli. No pizza oven though darn it.

    You’re killing me here. I’m so homesick for Calgary I could cry and honestly I’ve never found an Italian Market like that one either. Darn!

    Ooh, I didn’t know that! (about the pizza oven). But I love their cappucino, so good: and do they have their wine making supplies for sale?
    I remember they had this big ol’ grape crusher, in the fall they’d bring in grapes, and you could go buy buckets of the juice, ready to make wine with… do they still?

    They did have a big brand-new grape crusher right as you walked in the door! I didn’t notice the juice, but then I wasn’t looking.. I’ve never been a wine maker!

    That pizza looks amazing, and makes me even look more forward to the real Italian pizza (in Italy) I’ll be enjoying next week!-)

    No matter how long I make the list of places I must go (after trolling through your archives), you always find one more spot I need to see my next time back in the country.

    P.S. Thanks for the Manuel Latruwe tip.

    Just over a year ago we moved to south Calgary but had lived off Edmonton Trail and 7th ave. for over 5 years and I NEVER went to the Italian Market or enjoyed the Pizza from the wood burning oven. I am just kicking myself … oh well, it’s a good excuse to go check out the old neighborhood. The Pizza looks to die for!

    I’m with you on the “next time” pizza; but, I think I’d happily scarf down a slice or two of the meat lovers too. Looks great!

    funny – my man picked up raw pizza dough from there on Saturday and we made our own pizzas at home. (Hockey night = pizza and beer). Since I am still trying to use the chard from my garden, I wanted a veggie pizza. I spread home made pesto and riccota on the crust followed by sauteed chard, red pepper, onion and garlic. Topped off with a bit of mozza – it was divine! The man wanted meat – go figure – so we layered capicollo, with proscuitto, mushrooms and peppers on tomato sauce – again topped with mozza. Far too much pizza for 2 people, but it gave us leftovers for lunch the next day:)
