GNO

It has been so long since I have had a girls night, and it was much needed!! We started at Market Collective, got some macarons from By Ollia, then to Una for pizza, walked around Mount Royal to look at the beautiful homes, got some froyo from Tuti Fruiti then went hot tubbing!

The pizza’s we got from Una:

4-maggi { provolone picante, friulano, fior di latte mozzarella, pecoriono romano, finished with truffle oil  + local urban honey}

Sausage { spicy Italian sausage, caciocavallo cheese, grana padano, fresh basil, san marzano tomato sauce}

Chef’s special { eggplant puree, fennel sausage,trecce, semi- dried tomatoes }

…I thought the Chef’s special would be my favorite but I actually liked the 4-maggi the best and I don’t normally love cheese pizza.
