Eat More Amato

An unassuming front that can be easily passed by, make sure you don’t because the pizza here is both innovative and delicious. Located on College St near Kensington Market, they specialize in thin crust pizza that caters to both vegetarians and meatatarians alike. I’ve always been a big fan of thin crust pizza on the sole fact that it forces the establishment to make sure they do damn well on the toppings, and boy did they ever.

Yo, click me to enlarge. I dare you.

The interior has a bit of a dive feel but their are so many different flavours to choose from. The slices are so big, that my associate and I decided to each pick one and then split them half-half. Me, being who I am, I pick the craziest, most delicious looking one, for something I haven’t tried before. The other chose a classic-style, Hawaiian. It was rather good, crispy, and the tomato sauce was delish, though I’m not a big fan of cooked pineapple.

My pizza, I think it could have been called the Madonna or something. All I know, is that it is so fucking good. I need to go back there sometime soon, but it’s about a 25 minute walk or something from my school. It’s quite a bit closer to U of T campus though. So let me try to remember what was on top of this glorious piece of gastronomic dubloon. Green onions, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella, feta…? A great medley of textures and flavours all giving me the greatest party in my mouth. If my mouth were the Renaissance, it’d be like Michelangelo, Raphael, and Da Vinci eating this pizza in the Vatican. Art history, it’s cool for analogies.

Hanging out with my friend for the day, we passed by a box labelled “free records.” I love free stuff, so clearly, I had to grab a couple. Not that I own a record player or am even remotely interested in listening to them, but the typographic detail on the back and that fantastic loose line drawing called out to me. I still need to decide what I’m going to do with them. :D
