Double Zero takes its name from the quality level it guarantees of its flour. With that, it makes a chewy but firm crust that could please any purist and then tops it with ingredients equally inspired by the Mediterranean as the American Pacific. The six-cheese pizza is a delicate dance between salty and creamy while the wilder zucchini pizza with pine nut pesto, goat cheese, mint and lemon proves rules are meant to be broken.

A pioneer of California-style pizza in Calgary, Una Pizza + Wine had remained one of the most popular destinations on 17th Ave. S.W. for the last decade. The still-beloved Beltine pizza (double-smoked bacon, fennel sausage, smoke mozza, maple syrup) and kale Caesar beg for repeat orders, and the weekly feature pizza in support of Mealshare is always a delightful surprise. The restaurant’s success is paying off as Una will be expanding with two new locations in the next two years.
