The Best Neapolitan Pizza in Toronto

The Best Neapolitan Pizza in Toronto

The best Neapolitan pizza in Toronto will transport your tastebuds straight to Naples as you indulge in the soft, chewy crust and melt-in-your-mouth toppings like creamy Fior Di Latte and freshly cooked basil.

To achieve the appropriate flavour profile of an authentic Neapolitan pizza, one must use flour and tomatoes imported from Italy. If cooked properly in a wood-fired dome oven, the dough should be very thin at the base and puff-up around the sides, resulting in a beautiful ‘leapording’ of the crust that folds in half when you pick it up.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your best buds, and head out for a mouthwatering tour of Toronto’s best Neapolitan pizza - cutlery not required!
