Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria

1
11750 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0N3

This Edmonton-born pizza chain serves up authentic Neapolitan pizzas. Though you order at the counter before being seated, this “fast casual” style of dining kind of adds to the ambiance and food. They are known for their white sauce pizzas, although the red sauce is tasty, too. If you're adventurous, try the Cavoletti, which features oven-roasted Brussels sprouts, crispy prosciutto, gorgonzola cheese, dates, walnuts and a touch of honey.

Tony's Pizza & Italian Restaurant

2
9605 111th Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T5G 0A9

This spot boasts “New York style pizza” right here in Edmonton. Choose from their specials or create your own - either way, it is amazing pizza. That’s why it’s been a staple of the city for more than 25 years. Specialty toppings include prosciutto, capicola, bocconcini, arugula and mozzarella cheese. Their most popular pie is Sal's Deluxe, with prosciutto, capicola, marinated tomato sauce and bocconcini cheese.

Rosso Pizzeria

3
8738 109 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 1E9

Italian cafe-style restaurant is the best way to describe this place. Casual and warm, the pizza is soft and chewy - the way it was meant to be enjoyed. And, with a selection of fine Italian wines and boutique beers, you’ll forget you’re in Edmonton. Try their feature pizza, with buffalo mozzarella, roasted garlic, Swiss chard, onion, taleggio cheese, Italian sausage and ricotta.

Leva

4
11053 86th Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 0X1

Found in the heart of the Garneau neighbourhood, and known for their extraordinary coffee, Leva is much more than that. The food is something special. And, the thin-crust pizza is hand-tossed (never the same shape twice!), and prepared with the freshest and most incredible ingredients. They have everything from margherita to spicy chicken pizza, and they offer gluten-free crusts, as well.

Ragazzi Bistro Italiano

5
8110 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6C 0Y4

It’s not a particularly fancy place, and the decor is rather simplistic, but that’s kind of the charm of Ragazzi’s. The pizza is thin and hand-tossed just like in the old country. They also offer whole wheat crust or a half-and-half option, if you can't decide between Rustica (salami, bacon, potato, onion) and Primavera (pesto, artichokes, tomato, onion, olives and spinach).

The Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar Ltd

6
10334 108 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1L9

This is a Century Hospitality concept restaurant, but they’ve done it well. Parlour’s “Italian pizzaiolos” (pizza makers named for the Italian professionals who mastered the art of making pizzas) prepare the pies from start to finish and you can tell. Whether you’re having a Parlour signature pizza as an app to share with your friends, or whether you want it all to yourself, be sure to savour every bite!

B Street Bar

7
11818 111 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5G 0E1

You wouldn’t expect a run-of-the-mill sports bar to have a wood oven to make proper pizzas, but hey, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill sports bar after all. The wood-oven pizza is what dreams are made of, truly. The flavours are fairly traditional, such as Hawaiian, Meat Lovers, pepperoni, Greek and hamburger.

Capital Pizza & Steakhouse

8
7640 144 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5C 2R7

They are known as “the one, the original since 1976,” so you know it’s good. The place is spacious and comfortable, and they serve a variety of Italian and Canadian dishes. Their deep dish pizza is quite amazing. It has so much cheese and there are so many varieties to choose from, including Greek, donair and Santa Fe.
