1. Apizza Scholls

These guys magically churn out perfect 18-inch pies from an electric oven – no mean feat. The pies are real East Coast style, thin and crispy with nicely spread toppings.

Quirky names include the “Pig & Pineapple,” “Tartufo2 The Electric Boogaloo,” and “Sausage & Mama.”

2. Life of Pie Pizza

With two locations in the city they keep their pizzas very classic Neapolitan in style, baked in wood-fired ovens.

It all starts with their dough, that takes a whole day to prove. Big, thick and chewy crusts work perfectly with the delicious, simple and fresh toppings. If only all pizzas tasted this good the world would be a better place.

3. Scottie’s Pizza Parlor

Their pizzas come in all shapes and sizes and have been perfected after thousands of hours of testing and tweaking. Even today Scottie’s is still improving that perfect recipe.

It’s super popular for takeaway pizzas but getting all the way home without biting into a sneaky slice is nearly impossible. Watch out for the first Friday of the month, where from 10pm to midnight they have huge 28″ pies for hungry groups.

4. East Glisan Pizza Lounge

This is a super buzzy little neighbourhood spot that does great pies, has great happy hour specials and some of the friendliest and most welcoming staff you could imagine.

They call it “Detroit Pan Style Pizza”, where you make your own from a simple list of toppings so the creativity is all in your hands. Eating pizza here with a local beer is one of life’s great joys.

5. Oven and Shaker

Their menu is a mixture of wood-fired Neapolitan pizza and Italian street food. They use only the freshest available local ingredients and make the dough in-house using their signature 70-year-old sourdough starter.

Even their Milanese wood-burning oven (brought over from Italy brick by brick) is as genuine as anything you’ll find in Italy. While the menu is outstanding, to look past their pizzas would be criminal. An absolutely divine experience.

6. Baby Doll Pizza

Authentic, New York-style pizza with gourmet dough, sauces, and cheeses that are all made in-house.

Their pies are absolutely huge which means that you can mix and match a couple of slices to get the best experience. They also deliver and have a great bar which is the perfect place to chill out after your meal for a couple of beers.

7. Ken’s Artisan Pizza

Ken’s Artisan Pizza has been going strong for over a decade now, thanks to a Le Panyol wood-fired oven which is one of the secrets to their amazing pizzas.

The room is always buzzing. In summer if you are lucky enough to snag one of their outdoor seats you’ll be in heaven eating your pie. They also happen to make some of the best bread in the city if you can fit in more carbs.
