GF Toronto - The Magic Oven

When Tommie and I decided to go to Toronto as part of our honeymoon we made sure to do our GF homework. The first thing I 'googled' was pizza restaurants and was amazed to find that not only did Toronto offer such a thing, but that it was a franchise and would deliver! The Magic Oven we went to was on Broadview St. and was extremely easy to access since the subway had a stop right across the street! Magic Oven makes a commitment to serve as many natural and organic products as it can, as well as giving their customers a wide array of choices, from vegan to gluten-free. Now I must say that the Oven offers items such as soups and la la...but we were there for pizza only. We kept it simple, a sausage pizza with some sodas. When the pizza was brought to our table we were amazed; it looked like a Noble Roman's pizza! Tommie and I just looked at it, then poked it, and then picked it up and looked at the bottom. The chef thought we were crazy and asked if everything was okay...we just smiled. When we tried the pizza we were blown away by the texture and the taste. Who would have known that gluten-free pizza could be this good? I thought Tommie was going to run up to all of the employees and give them a big kiss on the cheek. It was by far the best gluten-free pizza we have had to date! Needless to say we returned to the Oven one more time before we left Toronto. I highly recommend for you to try this when you're in that neck of the woods, it is definitely worth it. Next time we find ourselves in Toronto we're definitely stopping by and maybe next time we'll try some of the pasta and desserts. They have a tandoori chicken pasta that sounds out of this world!

Other great things about the Oven: "Our restaurants reflect our commitment to respecting our resources.We use bio-degradable packaging wherever possible, our menus are printed on recycled paper, our pizza boxes are made of recycled cardboard, and we use bio-degradable plastic bags.Magic Oven restaurant locations are all reclaimed sites, saved from demolition crews and featuring recycled furniture and fixtures.We are a family-run business with a commitment to the environment and the community."
