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.



Bitondo Pizzeria & Sandwiches

Bitondo Pizzeria & Sandwiches

This no-frills, old-school, cash-only pizza joint on Clinton south of College in Little Italy has been a long-time fave in this area (like almost half-a-century long-time), with its big, greasy pepperoni slices for just $3.50 each.

North of Brooklyn Pizzeria

North of Brooklyn Pizzeria

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.


Fresca Pizza

Fresca Pizza

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.


The Big Slice (St. Clair)

The Big Slice (St. Clair)

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.


King Slice

King Slice

With two locations (the original on Bloor Street West by High Park and the second on West Queen West), King Slice is known for its humongous slices that come covered in gooey, melty cheese and toppings like mozzarella, mushrooms, jalapenos, garlic and parsley on the Arrabbiatta.

Sud Forno

Sud Forno

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.



Apiecalypse Now! (Bloor St.)

Apiecalypse Now! (Bloor St.)

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).

SanRemo Bakery

SanRemo Bakery

Not only does this Italian bakery on Royal York Rd. in Etobicoke make delicious donuts, it also has traditional (pepperoni, vegetarian) and gourmet (four-cheese, hot Calabrese, roasted eggplant and tomato) slices of pizza available at its beloved hot table.


Pizza Gigi

Pizza Gigi

Another late-night fave (it's open 'til 4am), this pizzeria on Harbord right across from Central Tech in the Annex has been around for over 40 years, and although it's gone through some controversy in the past, people still keep coming back for its satisfying slices.


Za Pizzeria

Za Pizzeria

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.


Village Pizza

Village Pizza

$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).

Abruzzo Pizza

Abruzzo Pizza

Like Big Slice, this family-run Richmond Hill institution has been around since 1981. With a crust you'll actually want to eat, slices here keep things simple - choose from plain cheese, pepperoni or veggie.
