The top 5 new pizza in Toronto

New pizza places in Toronto are whipping up pies that are unabashedly Canadian. You can now eat brisket and taco pizza here that isn’t afraid to step outside the Neapolitan box. And when it comes to our margherita and Chicago deep dish, we’ve gotten some impressive doppelgangers.

Here are my picks for the top new pizza joints that opened in Toronto this year.

General Assembly

Personal-size pies at this Entertainment District spot topped with mushrooms and garlic chips, cilantro and lime, or classic pep or sausage were designed with the help of star pizza consultant Anthony Falco and Cale Elliot-Armstrong from Village Pizza. They’re cashless with wine and cocktails on tap plus a dedicated carry-out space.

Yeah Yeahs

Clocktower Bar in Rosedale has been transformed into the second-ever location of this pizza place, the first one being in Nova Scotia. Pioneered by the guy behind Anchored Coffee, the Boxcar Social team is now giving simple pepperoni, white and margherita pies their all, serving them with wine and lager.

Conspiracy Pizza

At this Leaside joint, pies come topped with anything from pulled pork to fried eggs to kale to sunchoke sauce to dandelion greens. With names inspired by conspiracy theories, the only thing that’s not a hoax at this spot is the flavour.

Double D’s

Deep dish pizza is finally in Toronto at the Leslieville and Dundas West locations of this restaurant. The classic meaty Chicago version dominates a minimal menu that also includes veggie and blue cheese pies.

Superpoint Express

Ossington pizza place Superpoint opened up a Parkdale takeout outlet this year. Pick up their shroom, pepperoni, anchovy and kale pies, hero sandwiches and bomb caesar salad from here or order for delivery. Psst...Express Bar to the side opens every day at 5, serving dad beers, wine and cocktails.
