Getting a Jaw Workout at the Treadwell Bakery

The perfect pizza crust should be lightly crispy on the outside, with a soft, slightly chewy interior.  Well, the Treadwell Bakery in Niagara on the Lake definitely has the “chewy” thing covered.  They’ve got it covered hard.

On this particular day, they had a couple of types of slices available; the one topped with salami, prosciutto, roasted red pepper, and goat cheese caught my eye.

The flavours were actually pretty solid; the sweet peppers did a great job of balancing out the salty meats and cheese, and the slice had a garlicky, herby flavour that worked quite well.  It could have used a bit more moisture, but the quality of the ingredients was good; it was a tasty slice of ‘suh.

Then there was the crust.  Calling it chewy doesn’t quite communicate the enormity of what was going on here.  It was downright rubbery; I was having a hard time even biting into it.  When I say that it was a jaw workout, I’m not exaggerating to make a point.  My jaw was literally sore by the time I finished the slice.  It was nuts.

I still actually kind of enjoyed it, which tells you how good it was otherwise.  But man, that crust.  What the hell happened there??
