3. George’s Pizza and Panzerotto
Address: 252 Dundas St. E.
If you’re ever around campus late at night or live downtown, George’s Pizza and Panzerotto is a student favourite place to check out, and it’s open as late as 1 a.m. on Saturdays. As their name suggests, aside from the pizza, George’s is also known for its panzerottis.
4. Pizza Shab
Address: 113 Bond St.
This pizzeria may be on the smaller side, but it offers so many interesting variations of pizza that you’ll forget all about the tight squeeze inside. For National Pepperoni Pizza Day, try the souped-up beef pepperoni pizza, which also comes with Persian-style beef sausage.
