Top 5 Places for Pizza in London Ontario


It's National Pizza Day! A day that gives a tip of the cap to one of god's greatest creations.



London has no shortage of incredible pizza joints and condensing them into a top 5 list was anything but easy. We know that people are very passionate about their pizza so before you show up at our door with pitchforks, please know that this is OUR opinion.


Without further ado, feast your eyes on Dine in 519's top 5 pizza joints in London, Ontario.


Pizzeria Madre


Pizzeria Madre is an upscale pizzeria with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They use only the freshest seasonal & artisanal ingredients, never sacrificing quality.


While some like their pizza to be heaping with toppings (we get it) Madre keeps things balanced with a less is more mentality.


Their space is equally minimalistic & is just as instagram worthy as their beautiful wood fired pies.


Their sourdough Focaccia is also one of the best we've ever tried.


Address: 111 Wellington St, London, ON N6B 2K5



Through Thick & Thin


Ah, the new guys. This place is quickly becoming the talk of the town and with good reason.


Brought to you by the Wolfe Brothers, Through Thick & Thin specializes in New York & Detroit style pies. From their regular cheese pizza down to their insane flavour combinations such as 'Jalapeno Popper' & 'Eggplant Parm' they nail it.


The crust is light and airy yet crispy in all the right places, the sauce is tangy, the cheese is sweet & buttery. They also have some of the best pepperoni in the city.


The space is has an instant wow factor that you'll notice from the moment that you pull up out front. Glowing red lights, large windows, and an interior reminiscent of NY street art.

Address: 350 Ridout St S, London, ON N6C 3Z5



Doughboy's


Absolutely love this place. We've had nothing but great experiences here and the owners couldn't be more friendly.


Every time we've been waiting out front to pickup our order, they have brought us out a cold bottle of water and assured us that it won't be too much longer. Truth is, we'd wait forever if we had to.


Doughboy's has some of the most creative flavour combinations and they're all delicious. A personal favourite is the 'Big Zac which consists of Mozzarella, Seasoned Ground Beef, Shredded Bacon, Tomato, White Onion, and Pickles. Topped with Cheddar & Big Zac Sauce.


They now have two London locations.


Address: 460 Egerton St Unit 4, London, ON N5W 3Z5

Address: 1866 Oxford St W, London, ON N6K 0J8


Zen'za Pizzeria


Zen'za specializes in creative, thin crust pizzas. What we love most about Zen'za (aside from the fact that their pizza is delicious) is that they have options for just about everyone.


With vegan, vegetarian and gluten free features on the menu, you can sit down & enjoy a meal with your friends from all walks of life. (That includes us meat-eaters as well)


Their avocado toast is also great but almost too beautiful to eat.


Address: 71 King St, London, ON N6A 0A5





Pizza Projekt


Whether you're craving a traditional Italian pie or a Chicago deep dish, Pizza Projekt does it all. Made from the freshest ingredients, they import their tomatoes from Italy and source their produce and herbs locally.


They make their sauce and dough in house daily and their crust doesn't contain egg or dairy. The menu at Pizza Projekt is fairly vast so if you're looking to feast, this is the place.


At first glance, you'd assume that this place is franchised with 100 + locations but the food speaks for itself and has earned them a spot in our top 5.


Address: 720 Proudfoot Ln, London, ON N6H 5G5



Well, there you have it! As we mentioned, picking a top 5 was quite difficult and the reality is that there are far more than 5 great places for pizza in London.
