Simplicity is Best When It Comes To Authentic Italian-style Pizza

After a quick trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia from the Annapolis Valley (about an hour by car) , I am delighted to discover my new favourite pizza joint. A month later, I still crave and salivate over the G-Street Fun Guy PizzaTime to take another trip into the city, I reckon! I can still smell and taste the savoury fresh herbs and mouth-wateringly-delicious ingredients, generously smothering the pizza in the most comforting of ways. A blanket of umami, one might say. Most notably: the addictive dry-roasted mushrooms abundantly stealing the show. These mushrooms were some of the best I’ve ever had on a pizza. (And let me tell you, I’ve tallied a lot of pizzas in my veteran days of both serving and receiving hospitality!) Boasting earthy, juicy, meaty  “brothy” notes, without too much sodium, a rarity I find these days in the restaurant scene. More salt doesn’t necessarily equal better results in the culinary world, but the quality and grade absolutely does; G-Street chefs understand and demonstrate this well. They’re also professionally trained and certified in making authentic Italian pizza. And you can taste their passion in their house made tomato sauce, as it screams at the top of its’ rich cherry red lungs: sweet, sour, more umami, and depth— adding layers of complex flavours from simple, high quality ingredients. Oh, and thank you, G-Street Pizza, for the complimentary Gluten-Free Turtle Cheesecake! As a kind gesture for a first time guest, it was the cherry on top of my meal experience. (And thank you for not serving it with an over-saturated maraschino cherry tossed carelessly on top!) No, no. This silky, creamy luscious chocolate, pecan and caramel laden cheesecake was tastefully presented, divinely decadent to sink your sweet tooth into. It was satisfyingly rich, and yet thankfully, not cloyingly sweet. It was particularly supreme with an after dinner coffee and espresso based beverage. It made me happy from the inside out. 

The best part? The house wines were more than easily quaffable; they were down right quenchable! And the price was right on all fronts, which as a patron, I appreciate. Hot tip: you’ll never get a ‘case of the Mundays’ again when you check out their Monday Special on $5 House Wines, both red and white, by the glass. (You’re welcome. Dinner is served.) Offering Il Padrino Rosso and Pinot Griggio by the glass, or reasonably by the bottle, alongside other wine options well-suited to the Italian inspired menu. If you happen to fall in love with their I.G.T designated Italian house wine, it is conveniently available by the case exclusively through Bishops Cellar – a specialty wine shop located near the waterfront that you should absolutely consider putting on your Halifax Hit List while you’re in the area. 

The overall vibes? Extremely welcoming and attentive to detail; true hospitality in its form. A bright, tastefully designed eating space equipped with plenty of natural light seeping in the floor to ceiling windows. Excellent food & service all around, and a comfortable atmosphere, which is my personal definition of professional, well done hospitality. I should note: this is NOT a sponsored blog post. This is my experience in discovering new restaurants in new regions. I will be back, thank you G-Street Pizza
