Dartmouth Pizza Quest: Downtown Dartmouth

This year I’ve decided to take my pizza quest to Dartmouth! Just like the Halifax Pizza Quest, I will be dividing Dartmouth up into “pizza neighbourhoods” and ordering pizzas from all the shops in each zone for side-by-side analysis. The pizza zones are as follows: Downtown Dartmouth North End Dartmouth Woodside/Eastern Passage East Dartmouth Cole Harbour I realize that Cole […]
