Pizzeria Toro in Durham is open!

And man is it good! I'll cut to the chase and say it's some of the best pizza I've had-- including the pizza in Italy (I have not tried Bella Mia yet). They have two pizza categories, red and white, so we got a representation of each. For the red we got the spicy lamb meatballs and rapini; for the white, we got venison sausage, caramelized onions, and fontina. Both were awesome! The lamb sausage was slightly game-- in a good way-- and the rapini was just slight wilted. The sweetness of the caramelized onions were a great contrast to the tangy fontina in the white pie. The crust is just perfect. Thin and crispy but not cracker-like, with just the hint of char without the bitterness a charred crust can impart. The wood fired oven makes an obvious difference. The pies are about 14" and range from $12-15.

Pizzeria Toro is great new addition to downtown Durham.
