The top 10 pizza in Markham and Richmond Hill

Pizza is universally loved and if you find yourself in the Markham or Richmond Hill area there will certainly be no shortage of options. Whether you're after gourmet or takeout, authentic or off the wall, good pizza is plentiful in these parts.

Here are my picks for the top pizza in Markham and Richmond Hill.

Abruzzo Pizza
The go-to for pizza in Richmond Hill, this take-out spot has an expanded dining room allowing you to enjoy their spectacular pizza on site. The sauce here is what makes their pizza so good, with the perfect blend of herbs.

Cucina Locale
This cozy restaurant off Highway 7 is all about authenticity. While they may be known for their Italian sandwiches, their pizza is equally as good. With traditional toppings like prosciutto, rapini or grilled eggplant this pizza will deliver big flavour.

Nonna's Oven
Their stone oven makes all the difference. With a great mix of pizza and panzerotti options, choosing will be the hardest part. For something different try the 'Firenze' which comes with potato, caramelized onion, goat cheese, and black olives.

Marca Trattoria
This Main St. Markham gem boasts three locations and with good reason. The menu here consists of Italian classics including stone oven pizza. With a few mainstays and a daily feature the pizza and panzerotti here are real winners.

Nonna's Original Italian
Nonna's is a Markham favourite for all things Italian. Their pizza options are simple, with a focus on authenticity. The handful of pizza combinations such as margherita or primavera are served on a thin crust with the perfect ratio of cheese to toppings.

Levetto's brand is growing, now with 5 locations across the province. While the homemade pasta is noteworthy, the pizza is just as impressive. Square slices full of traditional toppings make this a must for your next pizza craving.

This warm, dine-in restaurant has an excellent pizza menu with options of white or whole wheat crust. Prosciutto, sausage, grilled chicken and brie cheese are among the toppings available making for some interesting and endless combinations.

Fellini's Italian Eatery
This family run restaurant provides a vast menu of home-style Italian classics. Thin or thick crust pizzas are available with plenty of traditional toppings to choose from. They have great take out deals and pizzas of all sizes.

That's Italian Ristorante Express
A casual off-shoot of their Woodbridge location, That's Italian Express has an impressive number of pizza options. Whether you're creating your own or choosing one of their combos you'll get fresh ingredients in a relaxed setting.

Smash Kitchen & Bar
Smash is all about comfort food. Their coal fired pizza boasts eclectic options ranging from BBQ chicken pizza to a Greek inspired pizza. If you're watching your bank balance, drop in on a Monday when all Pizza's are $10.
