Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the prosciutto sandwich at Peter’s Cajun Creole Pizza
Easy to miss amidst Parliament’s colourful street scene, Peter’s Cajun Creole Pizza is known for its wings and, well, pizza. With mismatched tables lining the floor, and walls flooded with newspaper mentions and old photos, this neighbourhood haunt has been in Cabbagetown since the mid-‘90s. Moving locations two years ago, the new spot attracts a more family-friendly clientele and houses a patio out back — ideal for summertime’s lingering lunches.
With a menu that offers a mix of New Orleans, Serbian and Italian cuisine, the hefty sandwiches often take a back seat, but should not be overlooked. Our pick is the prosciutto. For $6.77, diners get paper-thin slices of prosciutto layered atop a fresh Vienna bun from Messina Bakery. The meat is topped with slices of provolone, mozzarella or even some bocconcini, and loaded with roasted red peppers. Finally, balsamic vinaigrette-dressed spring greens are piled on top.
Those who eat in get a side salad, while the goods are just a call away for those who cannot escape the clutches of their desk.
