Pie Wood Fired PIzza (Barrie)

Hey Hounds

So as some of you know, last Friday they featured the above restaurant on the edition of You Gotta Eat Here. The pizza looked incredible and seemed worthy of a road trip.

Monday was my B-day and Mrs. Sippi knew I wanted to go. She suggested dinner and a movie (it's basically beside the theatre) so that's what we did.

Right beside the hostess stand is the pizza assembly area and wood oven. The guys were really nice and let me get right in there and take a picture. #1

We opted for 3 pies. Let me tell you, the crust is fantastic. It's not as light as I thought it would be. It's pretty chewy (in a good way) and comes thin. I still think the dough that Bigabaldi used is the best I've had but this was right there.

The Green Eggs and Ham is Roasted Potato, Pesto, Egg, Bacon, Spinach and Fresh Mozzarella. While not at all what I'd usually order this was her idea and it was really good. I'm more traditional when it comes to pizza but don't mind stepping outside the box from time to time. Well executed, just not really my thing. #2

The Porky Pie was simply awesome. Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella, Wood Fired Bacon, Spicy Sausage and Prosciutto. There's really nothing I can say about it. I wouldn't add, subtract, adapt or in any way shape or form change a thing about this one. It was fabulous. #3

The Nutty Pie for dessert was also really good however I could've done without the banana. That's only a minor complaint. Nutella with Bananas and Caramel, Vanilla Ice Cream. It came room temp which was a bit of a surprise but neither good nor bad IMHO. A very enjoyable finisher. #4

I'm not sure going all the way up to Barrie just for this is really worth it. It's just pizza. Even if it is terrific. However there's a movie theatre there and Costco on the other side of the 400. So you can combine things on the trip.
