Pizza Lovers Rejoice {Top 3 Toronto Spots}

So if you know me, or follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love pizza. It’s true, I love pizza. Like, LOVE love. If I could eat it everyday, I would. But I can’t. Mostly because I would be broke, and secondly because I have a touch of lactose intolerance. Okay, maybe a little more than a touch, but there are food moments I choose to just go for it, and pizza always falls into that category. Lately, I have eaten my weight in pizza around the city and, with the help of my hubby,  have compiled my top 3 pizza places, focusing more on the thin Neapolitan crust types versus deep dish or Detroit style (we will get to those later).

#3- Maker Pizza

2

Style: Doughy thin crust, but not super thin. (I’m sure there’s a name for that.)

Number of Locations: 1

Price Range: $13-$21 for small

Deliciousness Rating: Super Delish

Go-to Wheel: Dr. Pepperoni {pepperoni, tomato sauce, toasted fennel, fennel oil, parmesan, olive oil, fior di latte, mozzarella}

Notes from my Husband: Fresh, authentic toppings. Not an old school Italian pizza joint. All the ingredients were really good. Downtown vibe. Interesting combos like putting fennel on pepperoni. Brilliant. Modern day twist on what is not a traditional Neapolitan style pizza. It’s not deep dish, not thin crust. I really liked it.

 

#2 – Queen Margherita Pizza

4

Style: Neapolitan

Number of Locations: 3

Price Range: $15 – $20

Deliciousness Rating: Crazy Delish

Go-to Wheel: Diavola {Fior di Latte, Hot Sopressata Black Olives, Hot Peppers}

Notes from the Husband: A little more low key, little quieter setting (on the East end). Great specials, good wine, but again you go for that thin crust pizza fresh out of the oven. You can tell it’s nothing but top fresh ingredients.

 

#1 – Pizza Libretto

3

Style: Neapolitan

Number of Locations: 4

Average Cost: $11-$17

Deliciousness Rating: If I could eat this everyday, I would.

Go-to Wheel: Margherita D.O.P. {Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella “Doppio” – extra mozzarella}

Notes from the Husband:  PL is a classic Italy style, authenticated, certified (one of few in the city), using top notch ingredients. They obviously pride themselves at being at the forefront of the Neapolitan pizza movement in Toronto. Upscale casual, great for dates (wink wink). Amirite?

Have you been to any of these? Am I missing one? I sure I am because great spots keep popping up all over the place. Let me know in the comments and follow me on Instagram to see more deliciousness!

*on a sidenote, the lipstick I’m wearing in the feature image lasted through me eating that pizza! Amazing. It’s called Potion from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

  1. I LOVE pizza, too!! Since moving to Detroit (a year ago), I have tried different types of pizza including the Detroit style pizza. I have never lived in an area which features so many pizzerias! I love it! I have yet to try Neapolitan. Looks really good!

    • I don’t know what I would do with out pizza places near by lol. What makes detroit-style pizza so good? That is the one I haven’t eaten a ton of – tho one just opened up down the street from me so it’s on the list!

  2. I wish we had good pizza places here! I’m stuck in West Texas. We used to live in OKC and had so many good restaurants! My husband and I have been wanting to visit Toronto. The pizza looks great!

    • I’m sure you have killer BBQ though! I can’t say Toronto is known for their pizza, but it should be lol. If you ever end up coming here I will personally give you a culinary tour!

    • Me too! These are the closest I’ve eaten to the pizzas in the Amalfi Coast and Naples. Thank you for reading!
