Wise man say: forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza.

Alright – I have to get this out of the way early on in the life of this metblog…
Pizza is by far the greatest food known to man. It was surely invented somewhere during the 7 days of creation.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner – send some my way.*

* – there is NOTHING worse than bad pizza… Lousy sauce. Bitter cheese. Tasteless crust (Cough. Cough. Pizza Pizza. Cough.).

And so I bring you: Toronto’s Top 3 Pizza Joints (according to a guy who REALLY likes pizza):

1) My Zaidy’s Pizza
Location: 441 Clark Ave, Thornhill
Recommended Toppings: Plain or Mushroom/Tomato
Thoughts: Perfect combination. Crust isn’t too thick, cheese isn’t overpowering and sauce kicks a$$. Enjoy this baby plain or with mushrooms and tomato. I find peppers, onions, olives and the like really take over a pizza and don’t let you taste what’s lying underneath.

2) Mamma’s Pizza
Location: various
Recommended Toppings: Plain or Cheddar/Mushroom
Thoughts: I didn’t think corporation pizza could get this good – but mamma’s is doing something right. I’m pretty sure it’s the sauce that keeps me coming back for more.

3) Pizzaville
Location: various
Recommended Toppings: has to be thin crust – Plain or Mushroom/Tomato
Thoughts: Pizzaville is miles above some of the other local chains – their sauce and cheese combo is pretty good. They really lose points in my book though because of their crust. It’s pretty bland – and thus, I recommend the thin version. Leaves more room for the other flavours to win the day.

mmm… pizza…

    Can’t believe you missed Amato’s and Pizza Nova.

    I’ve had Amato’s slices about 6 or 7 times. Yummy. However, I’ve ordered a full pizza twice and each time it was so salty no one would eat it.

    I like Gino’s pizza because I like the slices with potato and cheese… not always available but so yummy!! I thought Amato’s would have been on your list too.

    OK – after much hoopla by you guys, I made my way to an Amato’s Pizza last night.
    Ugh! I had to throw half the slice out!
    How can you eat that stuff? The sauce is putrid!
    You really should get out more often. Close-by pizza does not mean good pizza.

    It’s not a big franchise like the others you’ve named, but Bellissmo’s Pizza down on The Esplanade between George St. and Frederick St. has really kickass pizza. Best I’ve had in Toronto. If you live near there, you should check it out!
