Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria

386 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M5S 1X4

After learning how to make pizza in the traditional method while on a visit to Italy, the founders came back to Toronto intending to share their knowledge with their fellow Canadians. Using 900-degree ovens, their thin-crust pizzas are cooked in as little as 90 seconds, which creates an amazing crispy crust. They are also constantly upping the ante when it comes to toppings, experimenting with items like Korean BBQ Pork and spicy Thai Chicken.
