Angela's Pizza Pie

Posted by Kim / October 19, 2007

20071019_angela2.jpgSometimes, the “$0.99” pizza slice just isn’t enough. Every once and a while, I am not satisfied with this Montreal culinary claim-to-fame and I want some pizza with a little more substance and taste. The pizza at Angela’s has, for the past few times, stepped up to the challenge and made me love and appreciate pizza just a little bit more.

Voted one of the best pizzas in the city, Angela’s offers up a pie that is a vast improvement over some of the other winners. These pizzas are not the mass-produced pies dripping with grease and spray-on butter, nor are they the lukewarm, cardboard pies found on too many street corners. Nope, these pizzas are the real deal: thick with mozzarella cheese, a traditional tomato sauce laden with spices and a perfect crust that rarely finds its equal.

20071019_angela1.jpgThere are lots of choices to be made when picking your pizza. Fortunately, they have a deal where you can buy four pizzas for the price of three (any size), so you can have some variety, not to mention pizza for breakfast for the next week. My favourite is the vegetarian, a pie packed with veggie goodness: artichoke hearts, asparagus, mushrooms, green peppers and green olives. The colour ends up being a bit monotonous, but the taste definitely does not. The asparagus and olives play the starring role, and every bite includes some of these ingredients. The artichoke hearts are used a bit more sparingly, but that’s okay; they add a nice, bright touch every now and then. This is the most heavily-topped option I've had, and the most enjoyable.
20071019_angela3.jpgOn the other end of the spectrum is the Greek Special: the menu makes it sound very nice, topped with feta, kalamata olives, onions and tomatoes, and in theory, this should make one fantastic pie. Unfortunately though, the just a few crumbles of feta and six kalamata olives do not constitute a Greek pizza. A bit more cheese, olives and tomatoes would have made this oniony pizza far more enjoyable.

The Angela Special is far different. Loaded with pepperoni and bacon, this is one salty, meaty, heavy pie. Like any all-dressed pizza, the usuals are there as well: green peppers, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Nothing fancy, nothing novel, just a richly topped pizza oozing cheese. The crust is not too thick or overly doughy, but substantial enough to hold up the layer of toppings. The sauce is actually minimal, and on all the pizzas, is an accent to the pizza rather than being a main ingredient.

Other pizzas are also available, like the smoked meat, Mexican or Italian. If pizza doesn’t grab you, then Angela offers you subs or pasta, or a wide variety of poutine, including a feta version or one with fried mushrooms. Open late (6am!) and with a delivery service that extends to the Plateau, Angela is one of the better pizza options out there.

For those of us sho live in the west end of downtown (like me for 15 years) we cannot walk by Angela's at 4 in the AM without thinking about going in. It's like it beckons us. It's heaven and nirvana all in one.

The Angela Special is the world's perfect pizza (aasuming you like meat). I want one NOW!!

After reading this review, I made a mental note to try this place next time I would be in Montreal, wich happened to be a few days ago.

Verdict: Great service but nothing memorable about the pizza, I tried the Angela's special, and while there was plenty of cheese and toppings it was a little overcooked for my taste; the bacon strips and and the crust were to hard for my liking.

Not bad overall, just ok, I might return to try a sub or some pasta instead next time I am in town.

I agree, I have been here a few times and the pizza is hit and miss. If they don't get it just right then it is nothing special, but sometimes they nail it. I find it's good pizza to have after you've been drinking, lots of cheese and grease!

I think everything ppublished was very reasonable. However, what about this?

what iff you added a litttle content? I mean, I don't wish tto tell you how to
run your website, but suppose you added something to possibly
get folk's attention? I mean Angela's Pizza Pie is kinda plain.
You could peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they write news headlines
to get people too click. You might addd a video or a piic or two to get reader interested about everything've
written. Just my opinion, iit could bring your posts a little biit more interesting.

I do trust all the concepts you have offered for your post.
They're really convincing and will definitely work.
Nonetheless, the posts are very short for newbies.
May you please lengthen them a little from next time?
Thank you for the post.

Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to
be on the web the easiest thing to be mindful of.

I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider issues that they just don't recognise about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , folks could take a signal.
Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

Expert plastic extrusion companies serve the vital function of creating specific shapes
out of hard plastic that are used to make various other products like tubing,
casing, and more. Quite a few solo mess devices may, even so, be taken meant for combining.
This heated plastic is also kept moving rapidly to prevent
any premature hardening or deformities on the finished product.

I am really loving the theme/design of your blog.

Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating
correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any advice to
help fix this issue?

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps
everyone else experiencing problems with your website.
It appears as though some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
This could be a issue with my browser because I've had this
happen previously. Thanks

What i don't realize is if truth be told how you're now not really a lot more well-appreciated than you
may be right now. You are very intelligent. You already know thus significantly in relation to this topic, made me
individually imagine it from numerous varied angles.
Its like men and women don't seem to be interested except it's one thing to do with Lady

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite
reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to take into accout of.

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other folks consider worries that they just don't understand about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the entire thing with
no need side-effects , other folks can take a signal.

Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
