Food For Fall
Ah, November. For us Canadians, November means the chill has set in and the clocks have been turned back, meaning the days are shorter and the nights just that much longer. Winter is lurking around the corner and we’re getting ready to partake in the Canadian schedule of alliterative sports: skiing, skating, sledding and snowshoeing.
As we get out our winter coats and scarves, our appetites naturally crave something cozy and comforting. Something classic, like pizza. Pizza is a natural choice for chilly late autumn dinners. It’s warming and inspiring, comforting, steaming hot and nurturing – not to mention delicious.
Inclement weather doesn’t matter when you can order up a hot and steaming pizza of your choice. There’s a certain charm to improvised eating. You can decide at the last minute, as you come into the house rosy cheeked and bundled in sweaters, whether your tastes run more to a bacon filled meal or one that takes its gastronomic cues from Southern Italy. Pizza Nova offers a delectable and fiery Porco Pazzo, heaped with slow-roasted porchetta, bacon and hot soppressata, the ideal meal to satisfy bacon lovers. The Banquet Cheddar Pizza, likewise, is guaranteed to please with its generous toppings of ground beef, bacon and Canadian Cheddar cheese. If your appetite clamours more for the warmer climes of Southern Italy, then be sure to order the Napoletana Pizza, brimming with anchovies, mushrooms and olives.
Whatever the case, nothing banishes the chill more readily than sitting with your family around the kitchen table, enjoying a perfect slice of pizza.
