Toronto hotspots for pizza by the slice

Sometimes even the most devoted pizza lovers can’t commit to a whole pie. Thankfully, Toronto is home to plenty of take-out joints offering pizza in individual servings. Check out these pizzerias where you can grab your favourite slice on the go.

King Slice

1598 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6P 1A7

As the name suggests, this High Park pizzeria specializes in king-sized slices that are loaded with garlicky tomato sauce and a generous amount of melted cheese. If you really want to ramp up the flavour, ask to have your slice drizzled in garlic oil and sprinkled with the house-made chili flakes.

Pizzaiolo Gourmet Pizza

3 Rees St, Toronto, ON M5V 3J2

This ubiquitous Toronto chain offers an extensive variety of by-the-slice options (both red and white sauce) to take away or eat in. Take a break from classic cheese and pepperoni to sample one of the house specialties. The refreshingly healthy Spinotta slice features ricotta cheese, spinach and herbed tomatoes on a multigrain crust while the Fredo V comes topped with olive oil, oregano, Yukon Gold potatoes and rosemary — an ideal choice for those who like a little carb-on-carb action.

North of Brooklyn Pizzeria

650 1/2 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1E4

You’ll find a hip crowd enjoying thin-crust ’za at this trendy Queen West pizzeria. Slices are available in four varieties: classic marghertia, pepperoni, white (topped with ricotta and arugula) and puttanesca, served with olives, scallions, capers and anchovies. The Church Street location also offers a kale and bacon slice on the menu. Don’t forget to ask for the house-made roasted garlic dip on the side.

Bitondo Pizzeria

11 Clinton St, Toronto, ON M6J 2N7

With large portions, low prices and friendly service, it’s no wonder this family-run Little Italy snack bar has been a neighbourhood favourite for over 40 years. The old-fashioned New York style slices are loaded with just enough grease to make them a delicious indulgence without turning them into a soggy mess. Bring plenty of coins; this unpretentious spot is cash only and has an old school Pac Man machine inside.

Pizza Gigi

189 Harbord St, Toronto, ON M5S 1H5

The low prices and late-night hours make this Harbord Street pizzeria a popular hangout for students from the nearby U of T campus. Here the chewy, cheesy slices are loaded with savoury ingredients that range from the meaty classics (pepperoni, ham, ground beef, salami) to premium alternatives like shrimp, capicollo, eggplant or artichokes. If you’re looking to satisfy your 4 a.m. pizza cravings then this is the spot for you.
