Out-door wood-burning pizza oven is an up-scale food hit at King and Spadina


The outdoor pizza oven at King and Spadina is an up-scale addition to the “street food” scene of the city. Every Tuesday they bring the mobile oven to the northeast corner of the intersection and fire up the oven to 700 degrees. It requires only 90 seconds to cook an individual-size pizza. Last week I arrived on the scene at 1:30 pm, and they were sold out. The gourmet pizza, with a crust and sauce that must be sampled to be believed, is obviously very popular.

My posts usually examine historic buildings and architectural history, but ever since the pizza arrived, I arrange my photographic outings and research trips to coincide with the availability of the pizza. The picture above is the pepperoni pizza. It is $13 and I considered it well worth the money.

Checking the pizza inside the mobile oven, located in the patio beside “Fresh and Wild.” The pizza can be carried away in a box or eaten at a table in the patio.
