Piazza Tomasso's "Pizza Plus"

Tatai | Mar 7, 201403:01 PM     29

My sister and I, former Montrealers who grew up on Piazza Tomasso, Miss Montreal, House of Wong (dinner #4 for two), etc., have been craving Piazza's Pizza Plus, along with their spaghetti with breaded ribs and their risotto with chicken livers, mushrooms and meat sauce. (Wherever in Italy did these people come from? Such unusual dishes!)

Anyway, the Pizza Plus was made on a thick crust, with tomatoes (I seem to recall that it wasn't quite a tomato sauce; more like chunky tomatoes) and ham (?) and mushrooms and green peppers, I think. The cheese is something we just can't place. It definitely wasn't mozzarella. It was kind of funky -- a bit strong and slightly nutty and sort of stinky-foot smelly, all in a really good way.

Does anyone know anything about the Tomasso family, where they came from and, most importantly, what kind of cheese and pork product was on the Pizza Plus?
