The Best Pizza Slice in Toronto
The best pizza slice in Toronto is there for you when you've got a hankering for pizza, but not an entire pie. From classics like Margherita and pepperoni to new-fangled versions that include Spam as a topping or, on the polar opposite end of the spectrum, completely vegan offerings, there's something for every taste.
Here is where to find the best pizza slice in Toronto.
Now with a handful of locations around the city (some in bars - perfect for late-night munchies) in addition to its original spot near Palmerston and Queen, this BK-inspired pizzeria offers thin, crispy-crusted specialties like the sauceless white pizza, with mozzarella, garlic ricotta and arugula.
A late-night staple with the College and Spadina crowd, these generously sized slices have been called Toronto-style pizza, made by the former Massimo's pizza-maker (it's always comforting to be greeted by his surly expression in the shop). They really hit the spot (especially at $3.50) - particularly the Margherita, which is slathered in an irresistible garlic-basil oil.
Its Yonge and Gerrard location may be gone (to be replaced with condos), but this best-bang-for-your-buck Corso Italia restaurant that's been around since 1981 is still going strong. Get the cheese, pepperoni, vegetarian or Hawaiian namesake item, which looks exactly how it sounds, for $3.50.
Terroni's Italian bakery on West Queen West east of Trinity Bellwoods has grab-and-go, al taglio square options like the 'Ndujiana, with tomato, mozzarella, eggplant, basil and of course, 'nduja (a spicy, spreadable sausage) or Farcito Formaggio, a white pizza stuffed with stracciatella and arugula.
Vegans (and even non-vegans) flock to this vegan junk food shop by Christie Pits to fill up on slices of thin-crusted, meatless gourmet pizza faves like The Pig Destroyer Destroyer (hickory BBQ soy curls, Seitanrizo crumbles, secret spiced not-chicken, vegan bacon bits, vegan pepperoni, garlic artichokes, vegan smoked gouda, vegan mozzarella).
Fresh slices cooked in a barbecue oven with classic (Margherita, pepperoni, deluxe) or zany (the Oh Canada contains maple syrup, mozzarella, crispy bacon and potato chips) toppings, including veggie and vegan options, are the specialties at this Annex pizza parlour on Bloor at Brunswick.
$5 super-thin-crust slices are on offer at both the original Dovercourt-at-Bloor as well as the Dundas-by-Bathurst locations of this newer pizzeria in the city. Popular choices include the Thanks, Obama! (BBQ Spam, pineapple, mozzarella, tomato sauce and parmesan) and the Mushroom Trio (porcini, shimeji and button 'shrooms, garlic chips, mozzarella, gorgonzola).
