Pizza Gigi

Pizza Gigi

The odd drug bust aside, Pizza Gigi has long thrived as a late night favourite for pizza in the Annex. If you're not overcome by, um, overwhelming midnight munchies, your best bet is to order and wait for a hot, fresh pie. Open until 4 a.m. every day of the week, with huge slices on hand right up until close for just a few bucks. More »

Amato Pizza

Amato Pizza

Familiar, ubiquitous, and thus, a bit of an old faithful. Though some may say Amato Pizza's heyday has passed, there are clearly still some who vote it among the best late night pizza options in the city. A hot slice and a drink for $4.99 is perhaps part of Amato's secret, along with keeping some of its strategically placed locations open until 4 a.m. on weekends. More »

Big Slice Yonge St.

Big Slice Yonge St.

A Ryerson student no-fail that's suitable after the bar or club, during late night studying, and a plethora of other excuses. Big Slice Yonge serves up late night slices exactly how they should be — huge, greasy, fast, and cheap. Just don't mind the techno in the background. Open until 5 a.m. basically every day. More »

Cora Pizza

Cora Pizza

Cora Pizza has probably helped to graduate hundreds of University of Toronto students, what with its (mostly classic) slices ready to grab and go to help fuel the evening cram. Prices are fair and slice sizes are good, but with nowhere to sit, this pizza has to be devoured on the way home. Open as late as 4 a.m. on weekends. More »

Fresca Pizza

Fresca Pizza

If you don't mind waiting for a fresh pie at 1 a.m. on a Saturday, the Margherita from Fresca Pizza is a solid, garlic-infused option for a bite by College and Spadina. The impatient can opt for a cheap, ready made slice (which will set you back all of $3.50) with Brio and garlic oil as must-have additions. Fresca is open until midnight or later during the week, and 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. on weekends. More »

Old Man Pizza & Wings

Old Man Pizza & Wings

Old Man Pizza & Wings is deceptively off-putting. While "Old Man" doesn't exactly invite images of gourmet, this place certainly does make a delicious pie right up until 3 a.m. every day. Wings at Old Man are also made fresh to order, but the panzarotti, without a doubt, is the best menu option (unless you're a devoted slice-type person). Nice work, Old Man. More »

Pizzaiolo

Pizzaiolo

Say what you will, chain-pizza-haters. Pizzaiolo really does make a delicious midnight slice, and there are always plenty of options on hand for the vegan, vegetarian, and carnivorous alike. Quality might vary somewhat from one location to the next, but slices are typically generously adorned with toppings and priced at around $4 and change. Many locations are open until 4 a.m. on weekends. More »

Ciccio's Pizza

Ciccio's Pizza

Ciccio's closes relatively early compared to some of the other places on this list (usually around 1 a.m. on weekends), but if you're craving a calzone and find yourself close to Bathurst and Dundas, this is the place to go. They're delicious, made-to-order, and probably big enough for two. A slice and pop at Ciccio's can also be had for less than $5, with fresh salads and pastas ready to go alongside. More »

Yummy Pizza

Yummy Pizza

A pizza place that's not shy about the quality of its pie. This "yummy" pizza is generally available by the slice late into the evening (2 a.m. or later on weekends), along with chicken wings, shawarma, burritos, and wraps. So, basically a little bit of everything. Homemade garlic sauce is definitely worth a try. More »

Amico's Pizza

Amico's Pizza

Amico's is more than just pizza (just ask its linguine fans), but if you're in Parkdale late and pining for a pepperoni slice, Amico's will certainly get the job done. Open until 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, this old school Italian spot keeps tossing pies until just before the sun comes up, and will usually deliver in the downtown core on weekends past 3 a.m. More »

Il Paesano

Il Paesano

Open until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. daily, Il Paesano is Etobicoke's answer to the pocket-change late night slice. Thin crust, homemade sauce, and generous toppings are all part of its appeal, along with the traditional dining room (white tablecloths and all) that looks like it hasn't changed in decades. More »

Express Pizza

Express Pizza

A little hole-in-the-wall joint that is much beloved by Village residents. Often only open after the sun goes down (and usually until 4 a.m.), this pizza place doles out no-fuss, greasy slices to hungry club goers after last call. No seating means you have to take this pizza on the run. More »

Planet Pizza

Planet Pizza

Some love it, some see it as a last resort, but Planet Pizza always seems to have people in its restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights when it's open until 4 a.m. While this place offers salads, pastas, and wings, most people stick with the classic pizza slices. If you've only got a couple of coins left at the end of the night, it might be a good option. More »

Vinny Massimos gets considerably better for single slice orders after 2AM. At that time, it is the best slice in the city.

Amato pizza has never been the same since the boys took over and started giving everyone food poisoning.

I know this sounds wrong, but the 2-4-1 on Bloor and Havelock is excellent.

Fresca's 'garlic oil' is so much more than that. Loads of herbs and that garlic bite...so good. Don't know why you'd ever go to Planet Pizza or Amatos if Fresca's open. Remember when Amatos was a nice place to have dinner? When bread with olive oil and balsamic was a given? A fading memory...

The fact that Amato pizza made it on to any blogto 'best of' list makes me question the validity of any recommendation on this site.

A vote for Amico's! You know it's good value when there are cops in there all the time for eat-in or takeout. Wednesday is the best for locals, half price pickup pizza!

Does Amicos still have their home made dipping sauces?
Creamy garlic and Jalapeno Cheddar?
It used to come in a huge container and was by far the BEST dipping sauces in the city.

I have moved and havent had Amicos in about 2+ years.

SO F'ING GOOD!!!

I used to live around the corner fom there, which was good and awesome at the same time.

[2 pizza slices and a Coke was not appropriate for dinner every night of the week].

I think BlogTO needs to put a large header saying, in size 72 bold font, that these lists are based on voting rather than BlogTO's opinion; every one of these has complaints from people who think its the editor's favourite places.

Express Pizza?! It is horrible. And, now that there is a Pizzaiolo a few doors down, entirely irrelevant.

The Cora Pizza building is for sale.
Is Cora closing down?
The Cora guy is old.
Is he still around?
Is he retiring?

I agree with several comments about Amato's. Having just moved to the city a year and a half ago, I'd never tried it. I was quite sick the next day.

I'm dying to try Gelato Pizza, though.

Pizzaiolo is The BEST pizza in the city, boo body can beat them. Everything is always fresh, they never freeze their dough like their competition or add gross butter to their dough. They have a huge selection, even gluten free choices! They are the BEST and are a home grown local franchise that an Italian family created.

No, the best is the dirty slices from Big Slice on Yonge.

Where is the pizza that eats genital mucus and loves to congregate around the pie hole of living doom? Why is there no religion when it come to a selection a pie holes big enough to fit four Pizza Gigi slices and 16 large nipples erect and throbbing from garlic or load? What the fuck?

Thank you for your comment, Rich. I told a few people I got food poisoning from Amato Pizza and they looked at me like I was crazy.

Never going there again.

Good picks with the exception that the big slice is as bad as pizza pizza mush these days.

Cool, I just knew about Amato and Pizzaiolo for late night. But the best Pizza in Toronto remains the one from Terroni (and La Bettola di Terroni) in the both locations in downtown.

I got a rusty staple in a bite of pizza at Cora once. Wouldn't give it more than 6/10.
