Queen Margherita

A strict Vera Pizza Napo­le­tana ad­her­ence is why these tra­di­tional pies are a re­li­able favourite. Per­fectly blis­tered crusts are topped with hearty cer­ti­fied San Marzano to­mato sauce and fired in a Naples-made oven. 1402 Queen St. E.; 785 An­nette St.; 772 Dun­das St. W., qmpizza.com

Ro­molo Sal­vati’s mini pizza em­pire adds a cre­ative flair to its au­then­tic flavours. For ex­am­ple, its sig­na­ture Via Mer­canti is a two-pizza-lay­ered mas­ter­piece— a ri­cotta, mush­room and spicy sop­pres­sata-cov­ered pizza hides un­der a full margherita pie. 188 Au­gusta Ave.; 87 Elm St.; other lo­ca­tions, pizze­ri­avi­amer­canti.ca Lam­bretta Pizze­ria The sig­na­ture dish at this fam­i­lyfriendly joint is the prosci­ut­to­laden Lam­bretta pizza, with a crispy crust that cra­dles fior de

latte, arugla and cherry toma­toes. Or, if meat-free is more your style, try the mari­nara, veg­e­te­ri­ana or funghi. 89 Ron­ces­valles Ave., lam­bret­tapizze­ria.ca
