Oh lawd. There is (or was) a place in LaSalle that had pizza like that, always remembered the bread balls in the middle. Damn I miss that.

Cold pizza is the best, man.

But yeah, never realized there was a "Montreal style" pizza. Gonna have to try that next time I'm in town.

I can't stand crust either but Chicago still rocks. Nothing has even come close. I'm open to trying Windsor but Chicago is world famous and I don't think it would be on the same level.

You know, growing up in Montreal, the pizza that we ordered always looked like that with the giant ball of dough in the middle. Then I moved to Toronto and have yet to taste good pizza. There have been a couple mom/pop shops but still not the same.

Come to think of it, this place in Scarborough called McCoys has a brilliant peperoni pizza where they put the cheese on top of the pepperoni. Unfortunately, they don't have all dressed.

I looked it up a couple years ago and I don't seem to be able find it. Must have closed shop.
found it - The Chicago Style Pizza Shack. Hamilton ontario.
Worth the drive.

I am salivating.

I know a lot of places here will put the cheese over the pepperoni too ... just have to ask for it.

It's more than just that though...

crust..sauce...peperoni...cheese. It's just different. They really don't use a lot of cheese here, crust sucks and the sauce taste like ass. Of course, this is just my opinion.

lol, i know exactly what you mean dude.

Nothing like a greek family owned pizza shop in Montreal --- they know how pizza and subs should taste like that.

Al-taib, double pizza etc (lebanese owned joints) don't cut it for me.... I suspect TO is a bit closer to this in style.

Angela's downtown is another one that makes a traditional montreal pizza.... right next to concordia on Maisonneuve.... and I'm 90 % sure it's owned by a greek family.

hollllyyyyyy!!! I remember those pizza buns in the middle. Where did they go?

A montreal style pizza, to me, is a pizza with extra extra cheese and medium sauce. It has thinnish dough but the crust is a little larger and crispier.

A como and miss italia pizza come to mind when I think of quick 'montreal fixes' for pizza.

But really good pizza is 'boite a pizza' on rue Mont-Royal. Good stuff.


I went to chicago last summer to visit my friend and that stuff was epic. Different, but epic. I don't mind the drive down there as soon as I eat the deep dish.

I still like Montreal pizza though.

San Francesco's in Mississauga? I was there on Saturday. Did they change owners or something? I didn't see any of the regular employees that work there.

What places have you ate at in Chicago? The place in Hamilton sounds good but I find it hard to believe it would be heads and tails above a really good place in Chicago.

Maybe that's why Dudley is moving here. He was at Chicago, exprienced amazing pizza, went to Atlanta, got sad. Brian Burke told him theres good pizza in Toronto (another 1 of his lies), now he wants to come here cuz he likes our cheese loaded no sauce pizza.

There are many different places and kinds here, but you almost cant go wrong.

When I go visiting I bring Pizza to my friends in Toronto and Calgary. They would Rather have a 4-8 hour cold pizza from our city than anything from where they are at.
The only thing I don't like about Windsor pizza is the shredded pepperoni :/ Pepperoni is round, Armando's, round!

Good question...I've lived in Toronto for a while, but I'm not sure if any place has true Quebec-style pizza.

I wouldn't call anything Montreal-style pizza, but rather Quebec-style pizza, which is characterized by a lot of cheese and very little sauce which happens to be way sweeter than any pizza sauce anywhere else in the world. Pizza Como in Laprairie is a place that does a good job at Quebec-style pizza. That being said, I actually think the pizza you find in Montreal is generally mediocre, especially compared to the pizza you get in places like New York or Chicago.

Toronto pizza is equally mediocre, unless you go to a restaurant that makes authentic Napoli-style pizza, like Pizzeria Libretto on Ossington.

find a greek restaurant that makes pizza not a chain
montreal pizza is technically greek resto pizza, pendelis pizza, buymore in the day and all those shops.
Sorry but even the italian places like napolitane cant compete with the greek pizza and i'm not saying this as a greek, but as a food lover.

I cant stand the toping on top of cheese and i hate thick crusts.

New york pizza is great cause they have a thin crunch crust, chicago pizza you just get exhausted with all the crust lol, but "montreal" pizza is just right....mmm

yup that my lunch....mirage pizza from laval...i didnt know what i wanted to eat till i saw this thread lol

There is not 1 place in NYC that has better Pizza than in Montreal. The Pizza in New York is quite disappointing

i'll disagree
I went to joes pizza in the village, considered the must have pizza in new york, and not only were prices retarded, but while the pizza was fantastic, i've had better in mtl. But i'm not going to lie, if you told me that i can no longer get "montreal" pizza and only new york pizza, i wouldnt be sad.

In chicago the best pizza i had was from a guy that used to live in mtl who immigrated to chicago and opened a pizza place.

As far as food is concerned, Montreal is better known for poutine or smoked meat than for pizza... I find it surprising that there is a variety of pizza named after Montreal.

Did anyone here try Amelios on Milton or Bottega on St-Zotique? I have heard good things about them. I need to eat there at least one time before I die.
