Revolver Pizza Co.
Revolver Pizza is firing up pizzas with a delicious assortment of toppings that rotate seasonally.
This open concept pizzeria sits right in the main drag of Mimico, which definitely isn't short of pizza purveyors (according to owner Sal Sayegh, there are about 1,000 in Etobicoke).
Evidently Revolver's already found its niche amidst the many, with a pizza that Sayegh describes as a hybrid between a New York-style slice and a Neapolitan pie. Using purely homemade ingredients, there's no freezer at Revolver: prep is done daily, with a cold-proofed, oil-free dough that's high hydration. Meats (nitrate-free) and cheese come mostly from Jesse Tree and Cheese Boutique. Twelve-inch or 18-inch pies are heated up for just over 4 minutes in a custom-built oven using ash and maple wood, with an impressive copper outing.
The result is a pizza that isn't goopy but still soft, with a crust that's not too thick and still has plenty of crunch.
The pistachio pizza ($14 for 12-inch) is a white sauce pie with fresh mozzarella, fortina cheese, mortadella, and a hot honey that Revolver makes in-house.
A Sausage Rap ($14), which uses spicy sausage, rapini, fior di latte and mozzarella, is my favourite.
I'd 10/10 come back for this multi-dimensional bite. It helps that the side of aioli sauce is to die for, too.
The 1UP is another white sauce goodie, with wild mushrooms, capers, fior di latte, havarti, and an addictive truffle honey, also made in-house.
There are usually two to three type of pizzas that you can get by the slice ($4.50), but I'd come back for a whole pie and a side of their arancini.
These risotto balls, meat or veggie, come doused in a marinara sauce that's delicious but simple enough to let the cheesiness shine. They're $3.50 each, or 2 for $6. You can take the marinara home for $12.99 a jar.
Revolver is definitely prettier than your average pizzeria joint, but it's still casual. The best part is probably the fact they'll continually update their menu: come in every four months and you'll probably find a new favourite pie.
