Named after the lore of the original “Margherita Pizza”—wherein Queen Margherita chose a pizza of basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella as her favorite—Queen Margherita Pizza is a lovely pizza shop in downtown Toronto. They serve authentic, fresh, locally sourced Italian dishes. The atmosphere is modern and friendly, much like Toronto itself! The menu includes starters like stuffed eggplant, whipped ricotta and kale, and octopus carpaccio. There are also several snacks and salads from which to choose. But, the main event? The freshest of wood-fired pizzas: Giovanna, Alla Campagnolo, and La Scala… Just to name a few. They’re made with combinations of hot peppers, dried tomatoes, sunflower seeds, goat cheese, sweet pork belly, and more! Of course, if you’re feeling classic you can always have the queen’s choice: Margherita Pizza.
