Danforth Pizza House

920 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4J 1L9

A Danforth institution for over 50 years, many of the store’s original features have been preserved, including the countertops and seating. The dough is mixed by hand and cheese is grated fresh daily. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients in every bite and the cheese is delicious and expertly-browned in their old school pizza oven. Seating space is limited, so takeout is recommended.
