When it comes to finding good pizza Downtown Edmonton, there are plenty of options.
Buco Pizzeria + Vino Bar, 10423 101 Street
At Buco Pizzeria + Vino Bar, brace yourself for blistered Neapolitan pizzas pulled out of a wood-fired stone oven. We’re big fans of the Peperonata loaded with peppers, olives, onion, sausage and fior di latte. If you’re driving here, Epcor Tower provides free underground parking for Buco customers.
Boston Pizza, 10111 104 Avenue and 10620 Jasper Avenue
The first Boston Pizza opened in Edmonton in 1964 by Greek immigrant Gus Agioritis. Today, there are more than 400 restaurants across Canada and the US. Downtown Edmonton has two locations, with the newest situated in the Ice District. The two-storey restaurant looks vastly different from the older Boston Pizza restaurants, with a more contemporary feel, but the pizzas still do it for the money.
Love Pizza, 10196 109 Street
If you are a devoted pizza fan, Love Pizza won’t disappoint. You can order their signature specialties, such as the Holy Shitake with parmesan sauce, fior di late, carmelized onions, roasted mushroom. But what they are known for is custom pizzas. Elevate your pie with artichoke hearts, spinach, farm fresh eggs, pulled chicken, arugula and sundried tomatoes.
Al Centro, 9892 Jasper Avenue
The owners of Al Centro, an authentic Roman-style pizza restaurant, have done their homework. The pizza crust here is light and crispy, thanks to being proved for 24 hours. There’s no need to buy an entire pie because here you can mix and match different ones, eventually eating your way through all the tasty combinations.
Die Pie, 10255 97 Street
Die Pie is truly a lovely spot, serving up affordable top-notch vegan pizzas crammed full of vegetables, plant-based cheeses and I-can’t- believe-this-is-not bacon or chicken toppings. Vegans should keep their eyes peeled for pork, pierogi and Mediterranean pizzas, as well as nachos, kale Caesar salad, mac and cheese plates.
Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar, 10334 108 Street
Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar is a fine place to enjoy the fire roasted flat-crust Neopolitan pizza selections paired with wine from the extensive list. The Sonny Boy with soppressata salami, for di latte, mushroom and fresh thyme reminds us why we love this Downtown gem.
Campio Brewing Co., 10257 105 Street
Right next door to Yellowhead Brewery, you’ll find Campio Brewing Co, Edmonton’s newest craft brewery. It serves more than 10 different beers, including the popular malt lager, several IPAs, a blueberry vanilla ale, but the best way to sample the full range is by settling down with a tasting flight in the on-site restaurant which sends out arguable the best pizza Downtown.
