With good pizza at an affordable price and numerous locations (including The Beach), finding a handy store for walk-in or delivery will never be a problem. Salads, pastas and Italian sandwiches further set this chain apart from the big fish in the pizza sea.

Panzerotto Pizza Ltd

1062 Kingston Rd, Scarborough, ON M1N 1N4

This chain has many locations, east end included, to satisfy your urge for their classic panzerotti. A 30-year-old recipe that only gets better with time, it’s like a calzone, but thicker, with more goodies stuffed inside. They’ll deliver to almost any corner of the city, and if you don’t want to cook for the family reunion, they cater.

Pizza Nova

1928 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1H5

Gluten-free pizza never tasted so good. Their website even includes handy and informative charts showing the nutritional values per slice and type of pizza and potential allergens in each pie and topping. In the take-no-prisoners Toronto pizza wars, they’ve carved out a niche as the totally transparent, health-sensitive chain, also offering dairy-free cheese. The emperor has no clothes, and he is proud of it.

Mamma's Pizza

2118 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1E2

The specialty here is gourmet vegan pizzas, and lots of them. If you’re going meatless, get on board with Mamma’s; the Giardino Classic (is that? It is! Broccoli!), Eggplant Parmigiana, the all-veggie, Gourmet Delight and European Classic, all come piled with cheese and veggies. And for the starchy richness that might just replace your protein craving, the Potato Pizza includes roasted spuds, basil pesto, spinach and cheddar cheese.
