King Slice

Posted by Staff / Listed on April 8, 2009 / review policy

King SliceEveryone I know goes crazy for King Slice when they're in the area, which is not often since I don't live around there anymore and the location is sort of between neighborhoods (it's at the intersection of Bloor W and Dundas W, where the borders of Roncesvalles, Bloordale, High Park and The Junction meet in a sort of uninteresting way). A slice of pepperoni from King slice looks like pizza out of an Archie comic: big, hot, chewy and dripping with cheese. I want to order an entire pie and put it away in a flash, Jughead styles.

THIS PLACE IS AWESOME. Their slices are big in size and flavour. Highly recommend the margherita slice but for some reason I'm madly in love with their fettucine carbonara, don't ask but i do encourage you to try any of their pastas. Definitely, worth the stop. GO GO GO GO!

We've been going to King Slice for 15 years. Consistently delicious! Their veal sandwiches are amazing too and I crave their Pasta Alla Sophia.

Do they have gluten free crust as an option? I would love to find a pizza place in Toronto with GF slices rather than having to buy an entire pizza.

this place is the sickest slice in Toronto by far. the slices are huge, the sauce is right, the crust has the right amount of give, & their garlic oil is 1 of a kind. the key is freshness, they're always churning out fresh slices throughout the day, unlike most pizza places.

The price is amazing for the quality and size you get here. I would also recommend there salads too.

3.5/5 stars

I don't know how people can think this is the best slice in Toronto. The sauce is filled with hunks of garlic, disgusting. In fact everything is filled with hunks of garlic, I have tried many of their pastas as well.

Yes! We are old enough to remember when pizza was made BIG! The cheese where you could see it and enough sliced toppings (not little squares) to cover the entire pizza. They don't skimp on the toppings, for once with this pizza place you get WHAT YOU PAY FOR. A BIG in your face pizza that will feed the pizza lovers in the house. If you remember the way it used to be made, you will love KING SLICE.

woahh easy tammy. this pizza has an attractive price point with loads of cheese. but when you're paying 2.00 a topping on a party pizza and there's only one precisely placed piece of bacon on each slice, i'ma go somewhere else to get my 'za. and don't bother with the garlic bread.

I've just started going to this place recently due to a recent move to the area. I've only really ever had the slices, but I can honestly say this may be some of the best I've had in the city. The slices are massive, the crust is just the right point between doughy and crispy, the toppings are fresh, the cheese is generous, and the option to add garlic oil to the crust makes any garlic lover like myself blush. Also, a little touch, but the free water with lemon is a nice touch. Nice little patio for the summer as well.
If that sounds like your kind of pizza, hit them up. You will not be disappointed. Especially with each slice costing under $5.

I do not know what this place used to be, but I agree that King Slice serves one of the best pizzas in the city for the time being.
Their quality is consistent time after time and all their pizzas are delicious.

I'm tired of defending this place. $30 pizza tonight with virtually no broccoli ($1.75) bacon ($1.75) or mushroom ($1.75). Just usual doughy undercooked slab with fake cheese. Ugh. Keep looking. This is not the place.

What can I say about this place? I want to like it -- the slices are huge and not that bad. But I ordered a pizza 70 mins ago and I'm about a 5 minute drive from the Bloor st location.

Based on an article on blogto we ordered from here. oops.

90 minute wait. 3 phone calls and a soggy pizza that doesn't taste so good.
Asked for the manager. Got the managers...mother. Who doesn't speak english so great.

Usually order from FBI but thought we'd try something new. The pasta is kind of gross. The pizza is super bready, and the portion size is pretty disappointing.

We heard you were good. We heard wrong.
