1. Pizzeria Gusto

These gourmet woodfired pizzas are as good as you’ll find in any corner of Italy. Perfectly charred, chewy crusts and authentic Italian and fresh, local ingredients.

2. Vera Pizza

Simple pizza, done superbly. Vera Pizza is a no-fuss pizza joint where you’ll never leave disappointed by their fluffy pizza bases and piping hot toppings. Authentic and irresistible.

3. The Red Ember

The Red Ember raises the roof when it comes to some of the best Winnipeg pizza. It started off as a hugely popular food truck, but you can now try their pies year-round at The Forks Market. The Classic with Zinn Farms Berkshire pepperoni, roasted Manitoba mushrooms, house-made Manitoba tomato sauce and mozzarella is a winner.

4. A Little Pizza Heaven

It’s all about the crust here, which they lather with garlic butter. A Little Pizza Heaven has four locations across Winnipeg so you’re never too far away from their heavenly (sorry!) pies. You can also make up your own calzone, which is over 1lbs of cheesy goodness.

5. Carbone Cafe Club

Carbone is a stylish eatery with delicious pies that have creative toppings, such as charred pineapple, fig spread or roast pork loin. Their dough is handmade fresh daily and the crusts are wonderfully crispy. Along with their fresh toppings, this is as tasty as a pizza gets.
