Pizza probably wouldn’t be the first thing that springs to mind. Not, at least, until a popular tourism website bestowed the city this week with the honour of being the eighth top city in the world for pizza.
Chicago, New York and Rome topped the list, but the site notes that “in an era when artisanal and hipster pizzerias are all the rage, the old-school joints still rule up north in Edmonton.”
That means meatballs, BBQ chicken, shrimp and — some may shudder — pineapple.
The list singled out three Edmonton staples: Tony’s Pizza Palace, Packrat Louie and Rose Bowl Pizza.
