Meet the owner

You probably wouldn't think it when settled in comfortably at Big House Pizza on a Friday night or dropping by for takeout pasta, but the poplar Danforth spot was conceived of and launched in just three days. "Because of the trade we’re in, we thrive under pressure," says Julian Poretta, who owns the pizza restaurant with Jake Paradis."It was a pizza place already so it had a lot of equipment in place. Deadlines bring out the best in us both."

The spot had belonged to a friend of a friend who was leaving the trade. A local designer drew up Big House Pizza’s cute little monkey logo and Julian and Jake, along with Amanda Ferias – an indispensable member of the restaurant’s team – got to work.

What other pizza joint names its pies after the famous and notorious? Their selection includes pies with attention-grabbing names like “Rob ‘The Jerk’ Ford” (topped with jerk chicken), “The Rocky Balboa Chilli Philly Cheese Steak,” “John Candyed Ham” and the “Sir John A McDonald,”each of which comes in a variety of sizes. Prices are on par with other pizza places, but the quality is in a league of its own.

Where to find a mighty fine sandwich on the Danforth

Where to find a mighty fine sandwich on the Danforth

A whole pie is an awfully big commitment when you're on the go, so grab one of the Corleone sandwiches here instead. Each one is named after a character in The Godfather, and the ingredients are piled sky-high. Options include the Michael (prosciutto, salami, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, olives, caramelized onions, romaine lettuce and pesto mayo) and the Fredo (grilled peppers, mushrooms, red onions, tomato, pesto and goat cheese). Instead of getting ordinary fries on the side, opt for the Jersey Fry!
