The Best Pide in Toronto

The best pide in Toronto exceeds any expectations of regular flatbread. This classically boat-shaped Turkish variety, famously known as the predecessor to pizza, comes with an array of toppings like sujuk, ground beef and lots of cheese.

Here’s the best pide in Toronto.

Leslieville’s pide purveyors have been baking their flatbread for 19 years. Shapes vary from round to square. Their kavurmali with roasted lamb or lahmacun with ground beef are two of their most popular pide.

Thin-crusted flatbread is the specialty of this Greektown favourite. Try their sucuklu kasarli pide, made with Turkish sausage and mozzarella cheese. You’ll get a free side of garlic sauce with every order.

No doubt the standout pide from this Turkish restaurant on Jane is the one with sujuk and egg. Flatbread is covered in cheese and Turkish sausage before a layer of beaten eggs is poured over for even distribution and a fluffy result.
