Edmonton Pizza

Anybody have any good recommendations for good take out pizza on the south side of Edmonton?

  1. Pharos - great whole wheat crust, tonnes of cheese :)

    1. Millhurst Pizza in Millwoods. I find them tasty. (Whatever you do. if someone is thinking about ordering off the non-pizza menu, do not get the BBQ chicken with garlic bread....BAD!!)

      1. Pizza Boys/Ragazzi near Bonnie Doon for thin crust NY style, and Royal Pizza in Old Strathcona for Greek-style cheesy grease wheel. I live in Vancouver now, and miss those two places dearly.

        Pharos is good too, it's true.

          "...for Greek-style cheesy grease wheel"

          LOL..excellent description

          1. re: Bob Mac

            Sounds like the pizza at Sunrise on Commercial Dr. If you haven't yet indulged, try the greasy wheel there may alleviate your homesickness.

              Thanks for the tip - I've found Olympia on Broadway to be to my liking for a Greek-style pizza, and close to home.
              I've heard the hard water in Edmonton makes for better pizza crust.
              Dang, I think I could go for one now...

                while we're on this topic what about west end/downtown....other than Famoso.

                  A friend of mine used to swear by, Rose Bowl pizza (10111 117 Street).

                  1. re: livetocook

                    Is Rose Bowl still open?? I haven't been there since I moved to Calgary years ago. They had awesome pizza back in the day. The sauce was unreal.

                    Capital Pizza was also very good (in Londonderry area)

                    1. re: djdragan

                      I went online to see their website and it's all Flash with some lounge name. Rouge lounge. It was interesting, I guess ??

                      Rosebowl was attached to it but the pizza menu was still under construction

                  2. re: cleopatra999

                    Friends of mine swear by Roadrunner Pizza over by the Miseracordia. Seems reasonably priced and with no shortage of toppings. Kind of a deep dish pizza crust but it's yummy enough that I eat all my crusts (not always the case).

                    1. re: cleopatra999

                      One of my favorites in the west end is Victoria Pizza (on 10132 156 St). Some say it is similar to Rose Bowl, but I think VP is better. I haven't been there recently as I have moved to Calgary, but I had noticed that the signs had changed - not sure if there is new ownership or not.

                      1. re: llkerr

                        oohh YES! I've had that pizza. Yummy!

                        Has anyone had the pizza at Parkallen restaurant? I've had their lebanese, which was good, just not the pizza :)

                        1. re: livetocook

                          yes I have, and friends had raved about it. I did not find it that great, on par with Royal (cheesy, thick crust), but at about 2x the cost. I will try Victoria & the others mentioned very soon!

                          1. re: cleopatra999

                            Thanks Cleo. Although I like Royal. It's not WOW to me.

                            1. re: livetocook

                              have to consider that we ordered delivery. eating it at the restaurant is probably much better.

                          2. re: livetocook

                            I think that the pizza at Parkallan is the best in the city... I used to live right around the corner from there, and made it a weekly ritual to go and have some pizza... Their lebanese is fantastic too, and what a wine list for such a little place.

                            For thin crust, and I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet, I love Tony's in the North East, fantastic pizza, great atmosphere.

                            Thanks for all the other ideas though, I'm going to have to check out Victoria Pizza and Ragazzi.

              2. I can throw in another vote for Ragazzi...tried the Calabrese pizza tonight and it was delicious. I think my personal preference at the moment is still Famoso though. By offering slightly smaller and lighter-topped pizzas at a lower price it makes more sense for 2 people to each get an individual pizza and be able to mix & match & share, which I like.
