The Best Desserts in Calgary

Without Papers Pizza
Located in the beautiful and historic Inglewood Without Papers Pizza is the host of an exceptional dessert pizza made with Ricotta Cheese, wine poached pears, Nutella and sprinkled with icing sugar. This dessert pizza is the perfect addition to any meal! Satisfying yet still light to the stomach, you leave not feeling weighed down but with a genuine smile on your face from a satisfying experience!
