A family member had been steadfastly hounding me to try Art-is-In pizza. Ottawa pizza? Meh. I’m admittedly a pizza snoot. Nothing comes close to New York pizza with its thin, foldable crust, ooey-gooey mutz and slices as big as your head. In my opinion, it’s peerless.
Then I tasted Art-is-In’s Lost in the Woods pizza. What do you know? New York pizza might have a long lost Canadian cousin, eh?
This pizza makes me want to bare my soul. It is pretty aggressively garnished. The maple fennel sausage is in blatant collusion with the caramelized onions, cremini mushrooms, sun-dried tomato jam and warm honey. The sesame crust is beautifully textured. At once crispy, chewy and soft with flecks of sesame. Add the mozzarella and basil and I found myself admiring the way it all came together.
If you are a true gourmand or just a big fan of pizza, I implore you to check out Art-is-In pizza.
