Ripe Tomato Pizza on Whyte Ave

Here’s the Calabrese pizza, simple, spicy and a winner!

Hey! New foodery on Whyte Ave!

I happened across the grand opening of the new location today (not quite by accident, I’d seen the signs they’d put up along some of the boulevards around the neighborhood).

I am always down for good pizza, so here you go: grand opening of Ripe Tomato

Their opening had a lineup out the door, obviously because of the tantalizing deal (two bucks for a nine-inch, choice of Calabrese or Margherita!), but check the menu and it doesn’t seem too bad even at regular prices.

 

Good Lovin’

Like all good, decent people, I’m a big pizza fan, and here’s place that deserves some word of mouth. Nice people, a good location with free parking in the strip-mall lot (which is a real plus the downtown area), and most importantly, very good pizza made well and with quality ingredients. Prices are reasonable as well.

Here’s a couple photos, including my go-to choice, the “Meatatarian”, but check out their full menu online here. Oh, and their FB page, too.

Customers can watch their pie being assembled at the order counter, and run through the nifty transport oven; then have it boxed up for takeaway or eat it on site – which is what I recommend. Nice ambience during the lunchtime rush, and bottles of olive oil on the table (both regular and spicy).

Relatively new to the Edmonton scene, Love Pizza now has two locations in our fine town. I’ve eaten at the downtown location a couple of times now (10196 109st in the Canterra strip plaza), and highly recommend them.
