Diavola Pizza

Diavola Pizza is a rock and roll-themed pizza parlour from the team behind Slayer Burger.

Situated just around the corner from Slayer Burger's Yonge Street location, this restaurant opened at the end of 2023, replacing the roti shop that had previously occupied the space.

In keeping with Slayer Burger's punk rock sensibilities, most of Diavola's decor come in the form of spray-painted stencils and cork boards filled with polaroids.

This logo can be found on everything from the walls to the pizza boxes.diavola pizzaDiavola's pizza flavours range from commonplace to crazy. Classic pizzas such as pepperoni and cheese are served alongside more unusual flavours, including mortadella sausage and truffles.

Individual slices are large and square and go for $3.49 each.

Though mozzarella and parmesan are the only toppings, this pizza is far from plain. The cheeses are rich and gooey and offer a nice contrast to the thick, crispy crust.

Of all the pizzas I tried, this one was my favourite. The spice level was perfect and the onions brought in some much needed acidity. If any dish deserves to bear the restaurant's name, it's this one.

Layers of cheddar and mozzarella are topped with burger beef, bacon, caramelized onions and Slayer Burger's signature sauce. The final touch is a dusting of black sesame seeds, which gives each bite an interesting crunch.

Though I was initially skeptical of this dish, I was surprised to discover how well the toppings complimented the pizza dough. With the addition of the nutella, the dough tastes almost like cake batter!
