Pizza is just one of those foods that can always put a smile on your face.

Delicious tomato sauce, loads of cheese, and tons of amazing toppings are just one of the few things that makes pizza so lovable. However, what would put pizza on a whole other level would be if it could transport you to Italy as you were eating it. I know it's wishful thinking (and probably impossible) but eating an authentic, Italian pizza slice can sometimes make you feel as if you're eating it from the amazing country itself.

Here are some delicious places in our beloved city of Toronto that will give you that authentic slice you’ve been dying to try!
