230 Sandalwood Pkwy East • (905) 846-3648
Venezia’s has what pizza dreams are made of; a perfectly thin crust topped with that curly, crispy edged pepperoni that’s oh so tasty. Pizzas are $8 and up, with a special for every day of the week. They’ve got a variety of fresh ingredients to top off your pie just the way you like and a ton of other Italian style eats to please any palate. Try the garlic fingers and veal sandwich sometime or the panzerotti. Venezia’s offers take-out and delivery only, no dine in option.
7700 Hurontario St • (905) 457-5557
60 Cotrelle Blvd • (905) 497-5558
With three locations across the city (Hurontario, Cotrelle and Brisdale) City South boasts some of the best Indian-style pizza in Brampton. Expect fresh ingredients and fast service at this take-out only joint. Single pizzas range from $8.50 to $15, with tons of other menu options to choose from. Try the Tandoori Chicken pizza with crushed ginger and coriander. For extra kick throw in some crushed chilies, it’ll be packed with flavour your taste buds won’t soon forget.
470 Chrysler drive, Unit 32 • (905) 451-5552
That Italian Place is best known for its authentic Neapolitan pizzas. Pizzas are flash fired in a wood oven and ready to be devoured in a matter of minutes. The quality ingredients and true Italian flavours have drawn a loyal following and even earned That Italian Place a coveted spot on The Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here. If you’re looking for something delicious outside of their pizzas try the Stromboli, one of their most popular menu items, and for good reason too.
This tried and true pizza joint probably serves up the biggest bang for your buck in the city at $15 for a large — and we mean large — or $1.75 for a seizable single slice. MacKay’s thin crust pies — though slightly greasy — have been a city favourite for decades and for good reason. Try one of their stuffed Jamaican patties with lettuce and mayo too, it’s a rite of passage for every Bramptonian.
135 Main Street North • (905) 455-
Any regular at Gusto will tell you don’t go there for the service, you go there for the pizza, and thank god it’s good because they won’t be rolling out the red carpet for you. Gusto has plenty of fresh toppings to choose from including a few unique ones including sun-dried tomatoes. The pizza is good and the price is pretty reasonable too, you cam get a full party pizza for $13.99.
10 Flowertown Ave # 10a, 905) 452-8411
Tony and Jim have been serving up delicious zaaaas to the Flowertown community for as long as anyone can remember. Anyone living in the area swears by their pizza! Their pizza pies combine a thin crust with just the right amount of sauce and baked to perfection. You can expect that perfect curst with a nice crispy edge.
J. Red is the newest kid on the pizza block. They’re fast becoming a city favourite and for good reason! They’re serving up a selection of wood fired thin crust magic. If you’re looking to customize a pizza, J.Red may not be the place for you, but if you’re looking for a carefully crafted, absolutely delicious pizza, then this is the place. A crowd favourite is the Eh’Loha which combines shaved honey ham, smoked mozzarella, roasted pineapples and double smoked bacon. Is your mouth watering yet?
