If you've had Lorenzo's pizza before, you know it's no Pizza Pizza. Three slices of Pizza Pizza's pizza is probably the equivalent of one slice of a Lorenzo pizza slice. Not only that, but the toppings we got also made it very heavy; pepperoni, bacon and donair. It's so meaty and salty. So good though. The crust of the pizza has a slight crisp on the outside while soft and fluffy on the inside. I just love when there's a bit of baked cheese on the crust. The taste of it is smoky and just awesome. When you're in Ottawa and want some Ottawa-style pizza, do yourself a favour and order from one of Lorenzo's locations.
I don't like Lorenzo's pizza crust as much as Christine does. I actually prefer a thinner, crispier crust. The thing that keeps me coming back to Lorenzo's is their sauce. It's homemade and full of herbs and flavour. Oregano, basil, tomato, and thyme. Those are the only ones I can identify with any certainty. I really wish they'd sell their sauce. I'd buy it for sure.
