Simple, classic Margherita pizza with only tomato, mozzarella cheese, and basil

Recently, my second visit to the Italian Centre Shop’s west end outlet just north of West Edmonton Mall reconfirmed that this little cafeteria-style eatery inside the Italian supermarket makes the best thin crust pizza in town.

This little cafe is tucked into the corner of the supermarket.  You can select one of the fresh, made on the spot thin crust pizzas from the short list written on the white board each day.  I’m usually a sucker for loaded with meat pizzas, but this time I chose the classically simple Margherita pizza, that’s dressed with a bare minimum of ingredients – tomato, mozzarella cheese, basil and olive oil ($11).

Order at the cash register and when the pizza’s ready, it’s served at your table.

My Margherita pizza arrived quickly, piping hot, and despite my propensity to overeat, proved too much for lunch.  Ingrid was the benefactor of the leftovers, and the remaining two slices served as a shared appetizer for our evening supper.

The Italian Centre Shop’s west end cafe is at the top of my list for thin crust pizza.  Highly recommended.
