The top 5 new pizza in Toronto

The top new pizza places in Toronto are taking 'za back to its roots. Crispy thin Neapolitan-style pies are baked in ovens ranging from wood-fire to some that rival the size of most studio apartments in the city, topped with a pile of cheeses, cured meats, or even vegan salad.

Here are my picks for the top new pizza places in Toronto.

Village Pizza

This Dovercourt-based pizza pie company now has two outposts, one at Dovercourt and Bloor and one at Dundas and Bathurst, and there are no signs they're slowing down. Grab a slice of Hungry Vegan with grilled veggies or Thanks Obama with spam and pineapple for five bucks.

Superpoint

This Ossington pizza joint does much more than pizza, including fresh pasta and carpaccio, but who could pass up the chance to get a whole steaming cheese or pepperoni pie delivered to an old school pizza stand at your table? Wash it down with one of their biodynamic wines.

Pizzeria Oro di Napoli

This Etobicoke Italian spot is serving traditional pizzas out of their wood-fire oven imported all the way from Italy. Bubbly crusts, spicy meats, and authenticity all the way are to be expected here.

Masseria

This new restaurant at King and Portland is pumping out classy pies in a chic atmosphere full of marble where the main centrepiece is a huge bunch of basil plants. Here, black pizzas are made with charcoal crusts and saucy meatballs and clean salads are served on the side.

Salt & Tobacco

This may seem like an unappetizing name for a place known for their grease wheels, but it's taken from the moniker for Italian convenience stores. Classic margherita and funghi floppy slices are the order of the day at this new Cabbagetown restaurant.
