5. Carbone Coal Fired Pizza, Winnipeg
Coal-fired ovens, the theory goes, heat up hotter than wood-fired, meaning thin-crust pizzas are cooked quickly enough to be enjoyably crispy without losing moisture. The debate’s still going on which kind is better, so head to Carbone – Winnipeg’s only coal-fired pizza place – to try for yourself. Their pizza dough is made with organic Alberta-grown flour, sauce is prepared fresh daily and other menu options include oven-roasted chicken wings, white bean hummus, fresh salads and the Ferrero, a personal-size dessert pizza with Nutella, roasted banana and optional gelato.
