Forno Pizza Frankie's
Here’s the deal: If you ordered in advance, you’ll show up at a back door ‘round the corner of a paint shop in Lachine, where a paper plate’s stuck to an apartment door reading one thing: ‘Pizza’. Get buzzed in, take the stairs up to the second floor, and you’ll find a former butchery space just shy of 200 square feet decorated with Expos and Ascoli Calcio 1898 F.C. pennants and scarves. That’s Forno Pizza Frankie’s, a smaller-than-small pizza operation where two Italo-Montrealer brothers are pushing a spiral mixer and custom-made Italian deck oven with steam injection to the limit, producing some of the best pizza in the city to date: ‘Limited edition’ pies that come filled with cheese, spinach and Marchigiani’s fatty slices of porchettone, light and airy Roman-style pies topped classically with potato or as a Margherita, or an 18-inch thin-crust Neo-New York style that Montrealers will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
