The Best Pizza in Hillcrest Village
Yes, you read that right – pizza. There are quite a few pizzerias that we’ve come to love in the neighbourhood, check out some of our favourites:
This pizzeria’s name translates to “Pizza and the Crazies” because of the owners’ fun-loving personalities, and it has become a Hillcrest Village favourite. Delicious bruschetta, caprese salad and of course, pizza! One bite of a slice of pizza will have you reminiscing about your trip to Italy years ago – it’s THAT good. Our suggestions: the Ai Fruitti Di Mare (mussels, shrimp, squid, and oregano on a tomato sauce base) and the Caprese Bianca (buffalo mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, cherry tomatoes, and basil on a white sauce base).
Pizza E Pazzi is located at 1182 St. Clair Avenue West.
Vannis Pizza is another popular pizzeria and has been in the ‘hood for only 7 years, but the owners have over 20 years of experience and it shows in their wood oven-baked pizzas. The food is well-priced and the portions are huge – and we can’t not mention the great service. Our suggestions: the Volcano Ardente (hot and spicy tomato sauce, hot Italian sausage, hot peppers, red onions, jalapeno mozzarella, and brick cheese) and the Margherita (tomato sauce, mozzarella with Fior di Latte, and basil).
Vannis is located at 672 St. Clair Avenue West.
It’s Marcello’s thin-crust pizzas that has us going back for more – oh, and the tiramisu is also super delicious. But back to the pizza – Marcello’s is an authentic Italian restaurant serving only the best Italian cuisine. Our suggestions: Alfredo (tomato sauce, mozzarella, prosciutto, and black olives) and the ever-so-tasty Pizza Primavera (tomato sauce, mozzarella, pesto, sundried tomatoes, onions, green olives, and green peppers).
Marcello’s Pizzeria is located at 1163 St. Clair Avenue West.
