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 »
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 »
A newbie and already rising in the realm of late night pizza esteem. Gelato Pizza opened in Parkdale close to the end of 2012, offering the winning combination of gourmet pizza slices and authentic gelato right until the wee hours of the morning. The prospect of ample seating also helps attract the late night crowd, along with fresh pies rolling out of the oven until 4 a.m. on weekends. More »
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 »
Vinny Massimo's is one of those places that caters to the crowd. If it's still going at 2 a.m., 3 a.m., or later, Vinny will keep tossing new pies into the oven. The slices here are huge, greasy, and just plain good, earning the reputation as one of the best after-last-call snacks in the area. More »
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 »
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 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 »
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 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 »
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 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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
