Celebrate Pizza Week 2017 in Montreal

“Everyone loves pizza!” This phrase is used to present the very first Montreal Pizza Week. From the 24th to the 31st of October, fans of this wonderful Italian pie can sample and even vote for their favourite in 10 categories, including thin crust, calzone, dessert pizza and gluten-free. More than 25 restaurants are participating in the event, and you can get to know a few of them here. [Photo of Pizzeria Napoletana]

Mangiafoco

105 rue Saint-Paul O, Montréal, QC H2Y 1Z5

These Neapolitan pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven at this small 70-seat restaurant in Old Montreal, where wood and glass blend to create a unique interior. As for toppings, there’s prosciutto, a shrimp and lobster duo, veal, soft-boiled egg, goat cheese with old-fashioned mustard, calzone... it's your choice.

Pizzeria Cortina

8660 boul Maurice-Duplessis, Montréal, QC H1E 3L1

This pizzeria with a relaxed atmosphere in Rivière-des-Prairies belongs to the “best thin crust pizza” category. Their offer for Pizza Week is the Italiana pizza with Italian sausage meat, rapini, hot pepper, garlic, mozzarella cheese and olive oil.

Pizza Villa

6672 av Papineau, Montréal, QC H2G 2X2

Around 20 pizzas are on the menu at this restaurant, which planted roots on Papineau Avenue 30 years ago. From the Primavera (spinach, broccoli, rapini) to the Mamma Mia (capicollo, minced meat, Italian sausage) and the Pescatore (shrimp, clams, scallops), you'll surely find something to fill you up.

Restaurant Corneli

6741 boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2S 3C8

For nearly 60 years Corneli has been part of the lives of Little Italy residents. Nestled on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, this pizza spot serves a dozen antipastos and nearly 20 pasta dishes. But let's talk about wood ovens and pizzas. Some 30 varieties await you, whether you're the pizza rossa type (with tomato sauce) or prefer pizza bianca (with olive oil, garlic and herbs). Let's not forget the classic Pepe (pepperoni and cheese – "how the Matteo grandson likes it”) and the Mascarpone, with its smoked prosciutto, rapini leaves and Mascarpone cheese mousse, of course.

San Gennaro

69, rue Saint-Zotique E, Montréal, QC H2S 1K7

Don't be fooled: this café-boulangerie on Saint-Zotique Street also offers a dozen pizzas, including a chef-inspired pizza of the day and a breakfast pizza – picture a pizza with eggs, cherry tomatoes, fior di latte cheese and basil. Also worth mentioning is the Caciocavallo, made with potatoes, rosemary, caciocavallo and mozzarella.

Pizzeria No. 900

1248 av Bernard, Outremont, QC H2V 1V6

Pizzeria no900 boasts 14 locations from Montreal to Quebec City and all the way to Sherbrooke, plus a food truck – talk about a rapidly growing company! These “pizza surgeons” are clearly well positioned for this competition, backed by their 13 menu options including the Porcini with white truffle oil, hazelnut cream, pecorino Romano and stracciata cheeses and basil. Suddenly our homemade lunches aren't sounding so hot.

Fiorellino Snack Bar

7
470 De La Gauchetière O, Montréal, QC H2Z 1E3

Four friends with a unique dream decided to take a chance and open this snack-bar type restaurant downtown. You could say this place has earned its recognition – they won a Grands Prix du Design award in early 2017 and are known for their friendly nature. Fiorellino serves 15 pizzas, including the Carciofi (ham, artichokes, olives, mushrooms) and the Mortadella (with mortadella, provolone, ricotta and pistachio pesto).

Un Autre Restaurant

8
200 rue Saint-Viateur O, Montréal, QC H2T 2L5

Modern Italian cuisine and an equally look – that’s Un autre restaurant. The imported oven from Italy doesn't stop this establishment from preparing a smoked chicken that's sure to please, but we're here to talk about pizza. There are a dozen on the menu, including the carnivore Laurier (sausages, smoked bacon, prosciutto) and the Waverly (smoked bacon, potatoes, onions and fior di latte cheese).

Pizzeria Napoletana

9
189 rue Dante, Montréal, QC H2S 1K1

The pizzeria that calls itself the first Neapolitan style pizzeria in Montreal - hailing back to 1948 - offers more than 40 pizzas on the menu. Margherita, Marinara, Caprina…they’ve got plenty of options for you to choose from. And every pizza has one thing in common: mozzarella. As for the toppings - clam, artichoke, pancetta, blue cheese, anchovies - it’s up to you.

And it's a sixth time in a row for the MTLàTABLE festival, playing matchmaker between foodies and Montreal’s fine food establishments. From November 2 to 16, choose from $21, $31 or $41 multi-course meals to start your culinary journey right here in Montreal. Here’s what’s on the menu at some of the restaurants taking part.
