I like Famoso, but they somehow manage to be... well, wet. I don't know why, but the pizzas are often a little soggy. But I still like them. They're one of the closest to producing the kind of pizza I remember as a kid in northern Italy.

A better example of this style can be found out of town: Pazzo in Stratford.

2AM Pepi's at Weber and Water is a guilty pleasure, although someone else would have to tell me whether it's actually any good.

Pizza Express at Highview and Ira Needles isn't too bad for a cheap place. Much better quality than Twice the Deal.

Looks promising! Thanks, zanate and jamincan for the recommendation!

Has nobody been to Bread Heads on Duke? Wood-fired amazingness! Pricey, but VERY worth it.

Oh yeah, Bread Heads is really good, but unless I'm mistaken, they're only open for lunch now and they only do personal size pizzas. Their roasted veggie one is great, but my favourite was a special they did that was asparagus and lemon (and maybe truffle oil).

I like Pazzo and we've been there numerous times before seeing a play at the Stratford Festival.  They make a very nice thin crust pizza with some interesting toppings.  

We've been to Famoso once and quite liked it.  I don't recall it being wet or soggy.  

Angelo's (238 King E) used to be one of my favourite pizza places and their pizza was very soggy in the centre.  But it was delicious.  Too bad they're not around.  Does anyone remember the place?  It used to be next door to City Cabs.

Another vote for Famoso here; all of the pizzas i've had there have been excellent.

I'm no pizza expert but my favourites are, in no particular order: Gourmet pizza, Levetto (by RIM park), Famoso and City Bakery.
