Fine dining restaurant, Avelo, launches vegan pizza joint

Fine-dining, plant-based restaurant, Avelo, has decided to transform their operation in lieu of COVID-19 and launch a vegan pizza joint for curbside pickup and delivery.

Pizzeria Du will run out of their old Away Kitchen space at 536 Queen West. You can pre-order for pickup via email or by phone, from Wednesday through Sunday, available 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The pizza is also available on Uber Eats.

The initiative is dedicated to the memory of chef Dualco, who passed right before the restaurant opened Vitalia, a new plant-based Italian restaurant. The restaurant was conceived all from Dualco's recipes, including his signature pizza crust.

We’re proud to introduce 𝐏𝐢𝐳𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚 𝐃𝐮! ⁣ ⁣ Our team was shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden passing of beloved chef Dualco before the grand opening of Vitalia, our plant-based Italian restaurant. We have since canceled the launch, as Vitalia just wouldn't feel right without him.⁣ ⁣ Dualco was a wonderful friend, as well as a talented and hard-working chef. Running a vegan Italian restaurant was his dream, and we want to celebrate Dualco’s life by continuing his work. Instead of Vitalia, we are launching Pizzeria Du in his honour.⁣ ⁣ We will proudly serve his recipes, including the signature pizza crust that he had perfected over the past two years. For now, pizzas will be available by delivery on UberEats (temporarily listed as Du’s Pizza) and by curbside pickup. We look forward to sharing his life’s work with you, and to helping you through the coronavirus one delicious slice at a time.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐮𝐬 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲⁣ ⁣ Health care pros are working hard, risking their own safety to fight virus. Also, some of our less fortunate citizens continue to struggle just getting by.⁣ ⁣ We will be donating pizzas regularly to staff at Toronto Western Hospital, and to West Neighbourhood House. Help us by contributing any amount and we will match every dollar, so your donation has twice the impact.⁣ ⁣

The pizza joint offers classics like margherita pizza, as well as more inventive pies, like Dualco's Romana pizza; comprised of cauliflower cream sauce, figs, grilled red onions, Kalamata olives, capers, queso fresco cheese (soy), fried rosemary and olive oil.
