Goldies Pizza

Diana Chan April 3, 2011 Cafe, Downtown, Three Beakers

CanuckGirl and I met up again during lunchtime. It was hard deciding a place to eat, but I heard raving reviews about Goldies Pizza, so we decided to go.

The place was not packed during lunch, but later on it got more and more busy. A lot of people were grabbing and going from the window.

On their menu, they have the different types of pizza and drinks.

We both shared the 7″ Roasted Chicken ($.9.95). The toppings had Tomato sauce, mozzerela cheese, roasted chicken, roasted red peppers and onions.

Then we also got the  7″ mushroom lovers ($8.95). It has portobello and champignon de couche mushrooms marinated in extra virgin oliveoil and reduced balsamic vinegar, honey, rosemary and garlic.

I honestly did not like the pizza. The toppings were great and flavourful but one thing that just kept bugging me were the burnt crust of the pizza. If it was golden brown, I would be more satisfied. When you finish each slice, I was a bit hesitant to finish it because it did taste sightly burnt.

When you attempt to hold up the pieces, you can tell the dough was not crunchy, but a bit soggy. It did not hold together well as a slice. So, what we did was just use a knife and fork to eat it.

Perhaps it is the rustic type of pizza I am not into. Again, just probably personal preference.

  • Hi Diana, thanks for reviewing our pizza! I’ts a shame that the pizza crust was burnt near the edges. We bake our pizza’s in an oven so we can stay true to our brand and “carefully craft” each pizza out of the oven. This does however, involve careful timing by our chef’s to make sure the crust comes out just right. Most of our customers like the crust to be a little crunchy, but if it does get burnt around the edges, the chef’s usually pizza cut those parts off. We hope you will give it another shot. We are about to release a brand new menu with a few dessert pizza’s on it. The Cinnamon star is off the hook… I love it, and hope you will too! Bye for now!
