I discovered Stoney’s during a re-run of You Gotta Eat Here!. Upon watching the show and discovering the great concept, food and atmosphere this place offered, I immediately made it a point to make it to Oakville.
Stoney’s Bread Company hides just south of the QEW on a quiet and lovely neighbourhood with a welcoming outdoor patio by the entrance. On arrival, and operating similarly as Famoso Pizzeria, with guests ordering at the counter then being served at their tables, one finds a rather extensive menu with big flavours and freshly made meals.
Mostly known for making their own doughs and breads in house, after all Stoney‘s is a bread company, we decided to default to the good ol’ carbs.
Our carb fest began with the Regina Pizza, a thin-crust style pizza topped with tomato sauce, caramelized onions, figs, prosciutto, mozzarella and gorgonzolla cheese.
The pizza had the perfect sweet-to-savory balance with the figs, gorgonzolla cheese and prosciutto being the stars of the dish. In one bite, one would get the chewy sweetness of the figs followed but the pungent and creamy taste from the melted cheeses. The crust was crispy golden, while the centre was soft but not soggy.
Though the Regina Pizza was my favourite, I also enjoyed the Saltimbocca Pizza.
Topped with grilled chicken, mushrooms, prosciutto and mozzarella on a bed of tomato sauce, the cheese from this pizza beautifully oozes out taking the mushrooms and chicken as its prisoners, alla NYC style.
From pizza to sandwiches, our last crab-indulging meal from Stoney’s was the Southern Style Pulled Pork.
The sandwich is served on a lovely focaccia bread, spread with garlic aioli and stuffed with a bourbon BBQ sauce marinated pulled pork. The bread had a tasty outter shell with a soft and spongy centre and the pork was tender and perfectly cooked. I however found the bourbon sauce a bit overpowering on the dish. A salad addition or the inclusion of some leafy greens would have balanced it out nicely.
Until next time Foodies!
