Here’s another Christmas season treat to look forward to. The almost famous PIE restaurant from Barrie, is opening a location in Collingwood on December 26th in the former East Side Mario’s building.
Founded in 2009 with two locations in Barrie, PIE was featured on You Gotta Eat Here and has had a loyal following before and since. They are known for their wood-fired pizza’s with unique combinations. A recent article in the local paper quotes the owners as saying their 7,000 pound pizza oven from Italy can make 8-10 pizza’s every 90 seconds!
I am curious to have a “PIE-off” between Santini’s, who I think makes the best pizza I have ever tasted, and the new PIE pies. Anyone care to join me?
PIE will be the third restaurant in the area to have recently been featured on the Food Networks, You Gotta Here show. The others that cover The Smoke and Tony’s Iron Skillet have not yet aired.
