Edmonton has some amazing pizza places that any newbie to the area would not want to miss out on. Last year, the pizza places in town were rated to see who was serving it up best. Here is a look at some of the pizza restaurants that take the cake from serving the best pie to offering the best experience including Leva, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria and Ragazzi Bistro Italiano.
Ragazzi Bistro Italiano – 8110 82nd Avenue
Ragazzi Bistro Italiano definitely deserves props for their pizza pies. This restaurant is located away from the busy part of Whyte Avenue giving you a better experience altogether. They are right next to some competition, Pizza 73, and while both places have great pizza, Ragazzi Bistro Italiano is serving it up Italian style.
Enjoy thin crusts, fresh ingredients, and original recipes. Try pizza with capers, pizza with capicollo and mushrooms topped with bocconcini and mozzarella. Try the Bronx, a pie with salami, capicollo, Italian sausage, olives, tomatoes and green peppers. Their dough is made fresh daily too.
Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria – 11750 Jasper Avenue
One of the best pizza places in town is hands down, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria on Jasper Ave. It launched in 2007 and has grown into a restaurant chain. Their tradition of thin-crust pizzas cooked at high temperatures for a short time is their way to guarantee evenly cooked pizzas.
Enjoy traditional pepperoni or try a gourmet pizza with prosciutto argula, moo shu BBQ duck or the spicy Thai pizza with peanut sauce. Their varieties are hard to beat. While Famoso was at its original location on Jasper, it’s now moved to a national stage.
Leva – 11053 86th Avenue
You have to check out Leva on 86th Avenue where their flavours, gourmet toppings and crust recipes are constantly evolving. It’s located at the University of Alberta area and is known for the small pizza menu, your favourite toppings, fresh herbs and sweet tomato sauce.
These are the top rated pizza in Edmonton as of 2014.
