The Best Pizza Delivery in Toronto

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 14, 2012

best pizza delivery torontoThe best pizza delivery in Toronto shouldn't be considered one in the same as the best pizza in Toronto. There's much more than goes into a finely delivered pie, including ability to maintain integrity under pressure (or, boxed-in steam), promptness of arrival, and price when factoring in cost of delivery (if applicable). Then, of course, there's all the typical best-of pizza criteria such as freshness of ingredients and overall taste. Consistency is key when it comes to pizza delivery, and the places on this have proven themselves reliable on those lazy nights when you're simply insufficiently dressed to go out.

Here is the list of the best pizza delivery in Toronto.

FBI Pizza

FBI Pizza

A relatively newbie on the delivery scene but with firmly grounded Toronto roots, this Queen Margherita Pizza sister service knows how to make a pie stand the test of travel. Available in “big” or “bigger,” the west end shop makes its pizzas with its San Marzano tomato sauce and somewhat sophisticated toppings such as prosciutto and caramelized onions. Now, if only it would do something about that acronym. More »

Vesuvio’s

Vesuvio’s

Perhaps a little pricier than some of the other delivery options on this list, but Vesuvio’s pizza has the reputation of being consistently delicious. Arriving at your door piping hot, the pies generally offer a light crust with a classic sauce and the option of premium toppings such as cappicollo and artichoke hearts. Just tasty enough to distract you from the bill. More »

King Slice

King Slice

King Slice offers the perfect night-in pizza. That is, soft, chewy, and dripping with cheese and fresh toppings. While your diet might frown upon the oil stains left in the box, your cravings (and budget) will surely be placated by what King Slice has to offer. You can customize your pie with in terms of dough, crust, sauce, cheese, and dozens of options of toppings. More »

Frank’s Pizza House

Frank’s Pizza House

This is the place to call for an authentic Italian pie, just as long as you’re not afraid of a generously cheesed pizza. The Taverniti family prepares its pizzas from its restaurant in Corso Italia, offering free delivery after a certain minimum and delicious calzone that you can’t help but throw into your order. More »

Dino’s Wood Burning Pizza

Dino’s Wood Burning Pizza

Surely the wood makes all the difference. Dino’s menu incorporates a mix of Italian and Turkish influence, delivering fairly thin-crusted pizzas as well as fresh pide. The pies come in “traditional” and “gourmet,” with a few cheese- or mozzarella-less options including Dino’s favourite, the Antica. Pizza from Dino’s starts at $13. More »

Il Paesano

Il Paesano

This place has been around for more than 50 years and has mastered the art of delivering a hot, fresh pie in seemingly no time at all. Using old Italian family recipes, Il Paesano pizzas come with a thin crust and homemade sauce, offered with the option of mostly traditional toppings. More »

Louie’s Classico

Louie’s Classico

The must-call source for thin crust pizza in the Yonge Eglinton area. While long drives are notoriously tough on thin pie deliveries, those in the neighbourhood can bask in Classico Louie’s classic takes on deliciousness. The pizzeria offers more than 15 signature pies, as well as build-your-own. More »

Camarra Pizza

Camarra Pizza

Another 50-year Toronto veteran and purveyor of the beloved classic pie (“If it isn’t offered on a pizza in Italy, it won’t be on one of ours”). The crust is available thick or thin (though thick is often a better choice for delivery) and can be made with the option of gluten-free dough. Prices here, too, are a bit steeper than most, but the freshness of the ingredients is bar none. More »

Fresca Pizza

Fresca Pizza

Although Fresca Pizza offers the standard run of toppings (and pasta, too), it's all about the Margherita here. As was the case when this corner pizza joint bore the name Massimo's, the basic pie is their best - brushed at it is with garlic oil before being dispatched to your door. It arrives dripping with that unrefined but oh-so comforting layer of grease that makes old-school delivery pizza so satisfying. More »

With you on that! Vesuvio's makes a great pie and the price tag is not offensive at all. Delivered piping hot every time, and their side Caesar salad is always crispy fresh.

The reviews on the Vesuvio's page aren't great- sure they are old, but there's one to many cockroach references for my liking.....

The reviews for King Slice aren't great either.

I think pizza is a)very subjective to each person, and b)very hit and miss at the same place depending on the night. Some nights I can get a pizza pizza slice and love it, other days it's terrible.

Best pizza East of the Don is Valley's Top Notch in Danforth. It's been my go to since moving back to Cox/Dan last year. Had a group of guys from all over T.O. for poker the other night and nothing but raves from a bunch of cynical, hard-to-please gents!

How about a list of best budget-friendly pizza delivery options? When did ordering a pizza get to be so expensive? Every time, it's over $30 all in. And that's with basic toppings. Sometimes you just need cheap, filling and fast, but still want it to taste good. My only issue with Pizza Pizza is that their sauce doesn't have much flavour. Otherwise, the topping choices are great and their crust is really good. We were ordering Gino's for the longest time and then suddenly they stopped delivering to "our area," which is in the downtown core. Any other suggestions? Papa Ceo's no longer delivers. Pizzaola is over $30.
Michelle / March 14, 2012 at 01:49 pm
user-pic
Maybe I should have said "wallet-friendly." It's not a matter of what we can afford but rather thinking of how much pizza I could make for $30. But not when there's no ingredients in the house, and we're hungry and tired, so I guess there's the value...

Tried FBI and was unimpressed. In the same neighbourhood, we have Yummy Pizza on Royal York Road, a family owned place. Delicious pizza (with higher end toppings if you want), free delivery and about half the price of FBI. No contest.

Pizza Pizza is fairly good if you walk in and have a fresh slice in-store, but I would never again order it for delivery - last time I did, the crust was practically raw, ugh! I'd rather wait an extra 10-15 minutes and have the pie cooked all the way through.

I love franks pizza house. Pizza pizza is a franchise and the pizza dough is pre-made by whoever they hire and the sauce comes out of a package....how do u think they r able to deliver in 40 mins or it's free. Places like franks make the pizza fresh to order and it's made by pros who went to school and have years of experience. Everyting is fresh, the sauce, dough and toppings...and the reason delivery takes longer is because they stretch out ur pizza the minute u order not 3 hours before. Also, they r family run so they don't serve food to their customers that they wouldnt serve to their family....and the driver is soon cute he looks like pauly d!

For the east siders it has to be Venice Pizza at St. Clair and O'Connor, a little pricey but highest quality and a killer list of specialty 'za's, some of which are named after the local neighbourhoods (e.g. Parkview Hills favourite aka #21)...that they've managed to thrive with a hole in the wall spot when a brand new Pizza Pizza opendd up across the street is testament to their popularity...highly recommend!!

We ordered from FBI the other night. The guy who took the order said it would be 45-60 minutes… At about 45 minutes he called me back and asked for my CC info and said the driver was leaving. About another 45 minutes passed and I called to see if the driver was lost or something… About 10 minutes later he showed up, almost left without giving us the 2nd pizza we ordered… The pizza was decent, or at least it would have been if it had still been hot - won't be ordering from FBI again.

I wish Fresca would deliver to the St Lawrence market area. Massimo's used to deliver, but not anymore, and I am longing for a good DELIVERED Margherita pizza. Why is that impossible in this area??
Tried Mammia's and it SUCKS. It's not the same great little pizzas I used to get at their shop in Yorkdale decades ago. And Little Tony's made great pizza, but they too were in the north west of the city.

Oh you are so right about Massimo's ( now Vinny Massimo's) I was lucky enough to have them deliver to my area, but they no longer do, and neither does their replacement on College, Fresca, who apparently has the same pizza maker and same menu, meaning they still make a wicked Margherita. I wish they would deliver here again. I miss that pie, with extra cheese on a thin crust.

Pizza was loaded with toppings ( no holding back ) the dough out of this world made by Franks most certain and the Mozz was real Mozz.

I hate,loathe Mama's Pizza! It used to be wonderful when it was known as "Monte Carlo" back in the 1970's,but now it is terrible. The pizzas are very poorly made,one could buy a better frozen pizza. Mama's Pizza deserves to go the way of the Model T Ford and go out of business!
Ingredients are cheaply put together,service (delivery) is terrible,pizzas arrive lukewarm,doughy,taste like nothing. A disgrace to Toronto and to Pizza in this city!

Wrong. The best pizza delivery (and non-coincidentally, the best pizza) in Toronto is that which is delivered by 'The Wolf' of Big House Pizza at Donlands and Danforth (adjacent to the best damn bar in the city). Yes, 'The Wolf': a leather-jacketed, purple-bearded man of mystery, with a voice for radio and affinity for t-shirts with wild animals. Who is this mysterious stranger delivering pizza to the strange lands East of the Don Valley? We may never know. Good pizza, though!

In the East End, Diamond Pizza on Main N. of Danforth is excellent. I'm told their slices are terrible, but their full pizzas are superb.

Diamond Pizza might be better now that it was sold it to some Arabs. Doesn't matter what kind of pizza you would get from there, it sucked--as did everything else the previous owner's staff would make.

On that note, the food that the Arabs made (the one time I went in there after it was sold) was WAY better than anything the previous owner's staff made.


By the way, as is the usual for this site, this list is a turd. Try harder at making properly researched articles, blogTO.
