Take-out visit: Red Devil Pizza

My husband came back from work at camp with a bad cold and the last thing he wanted to do was cook dinner. I wasn’t much more interested after a long week at work.

We still have a gift-certificate for Giorgio’s that needs to be used but the idea of sitting in a restaurant was not too appealing to him either.

Luckily, earlier that day a colleague had mentioned Red Devil Pizza. Other than a brief comment on this blog, I didn’t really know what it is – other than the obvious.. pizza.

She highly recommended it – saying the cook learned from the folks at Bocelli’s (RIP) and that it was similar to Epic Pizza.

That sounded good to me, so we ordered for pickup.

The Red Devil Pizza provides food for the Towne club lounge in the Town & Mountain hotel. The night we ordered.. it was busy in there.

Because of the hectic nature inside, I’m not surprised that our pizza took a little longer than expected.

I chatted with some Australians sitting at the bar as I waited for the pizza. They said that in the short time they had been there, quite a few pizzas had been brought out. “They must be good,” he added.

So, was it?

I think so!

I want to say it’s not quite Bocelli’s but am afraid my sadness of their closure has elevated their pizza to levels far beyond my actual tastes. But I can see the Epic Pizza comparison in terms of crust, topping allocation and flavour.

If I could offer one piece of advice: More garlic. 🙂

That said, the caramelized onions on our Downtown pizza (pepperoni, mushrooms, caramelized onions, black olives, green peppers) were delightful.

It didn’t have a marbled crust, but was otherwise well-cooked.

Despite his illness, my husband ate half the pizza that night. So it must have been good!

Likelihood of return visit: High – it is an easy option for pizza if I want to pick it up on my way home from work.
