Best Pizza in Toronto

Double D's | South Etobicoke

If you are looking to try some real Chicago-style deep dish pizza right here in Toronto, Double D's delivers the best in the city. There are two locations, one on Leslieville and the one we ordered from in the west end, in the Long Branch area of Etobicoke on the Lake Shore. Double D's is one of the Toronto restaurants offering takeout and delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. So if you are looking for a great local restaurant to support and are craving a classic deep dish with pepperoni and Italian sausage, give this spot a try. You can order directly from their website for pick-up or through Uber Eats. Rosie :)

The Good Son | Queen West

What a gem The Good Son is! Cozy, inviting decor with a wall of grandfather clocks, varnished wood tables and a stunning vintage chandelier that gives a warm glow to the dining area (a good chandelier gets me every time.) The wood oven baked pizzas do not disappoint. I had heard lots of good things about the prosciutto one and it was perfect- crispy and flavourful topped with mascarpone, arugula and roasted tomato.

Chef Vittorio Colacitti was at lots of top Toronto restaurants including Lucien and Pizzeria Via Mercanti before opening The Good Son. Top Chef superfans like me will remember him from season four of Top Chef Canada. What a lovely addition to Queen West in the location that Nyood used to occupy. Rosie :)

Il Paesano | Etobicoke

Il Paesano is a pizza place on Brown's Line in south Etobicoke. It's one of those neighbourhood restaurants that has been around forever and you are so glad to know about it because it is so authentic and delicious. The pizza is fantastic, and comes to your door in under half an hour with no delivery charge.

FBI Pizza | Mimico

We have been excited to order from FBI Pizza, which Toronto Life named one of the top delivery spots in the west end. FBI Pizza (which stands for Full-Blooded Italian) is brought to the awesome Mimico neighbourhood by the owners of Queen Margherita, so we had high expectations. It did not disappoint. We got a "bigger" pie with a whole-wheat crust, topped with with bocconcini, caramelized onions and pepperoni (I can't have pizza without pepperoni.) Here is the pizza in its entirety. It does not look like that anymore.

This delicious pizza brought to mind a pie we had in Chicago; our first deep dish pizza in the city. We had pizza every night there and our fave was this stunning creation of sausage and cheese by Pizzeria Uno. Heaven in a cardboard box. Rosie :)
