My favorite pizza in Halifax! Sal's from-scratch dough is brushed and infused with garlic olive oil before being stretched into a variety of mouth-watering creations. Mushroom lovers MUST try "The Rodger"; order "The Sicilian" to experience a true Italian moment; the "Miguel" is a smoky, caramelized onion concoction, for serious pizza lovers. Or play it safe and get the Original, a thin crust slice of heaven. Available to eat in (you'll get all the good Liquid Gold olive oil you can handle), or take out (a perfect companion to a full, cold growler).
