Let’s keep this short and sweet. Campus Pizza is a random little pizza joint located in the McKernan neighbourhood. The closest restaurant it’s by is Bistro 76, which I haven’t been to since it re-branded from Enzo’s. Slightly off the main path of 76 Avenue, blink and you’ll miss it.
We decided to grab a pizza for takeout on an early Wednesday afternoon. Takeout is the way to go – the inside is pretty shabby so I wouldn’t bother staying here to eat. I was a bit surprised to see two older Asian gentleman running the pizza joint – can’t say you see that too often in Edmonton.
The menu if you want to take a look. There’s seven pizzas to choose from unless you want to customize your own 1/2/3 topping pizza. Heck, there’s even donairs here. They ran out of takeout menus even though they had just opened up for the day. Alright…
House special pizza ($21.50)
Pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, pineapple, black olives and bacon. A medium (12″) is good enough for eight slices and can probably fill up two people. We ate about 3/4 of our pizza and then saved the last two slices for another day. What to say about the house special? Crust was decent with a nice crunch but the more you moved into the center of the pizza, the soggier it became.
In a nutshell, this is “Canadian-ized” pizza. Thick, greasy, cheesy overload. Taste was your typical, run of the mill pizza.
For $20, I’ll try my luck at another pizza joint in town.
