Whether you’re looking for a late night joint that’ll prepare you a monster pizza to go, or a authentic Italian trattoria creating the finest pizzas this side of the Atlantic served with a glass of red, Calgary has the pizzeria for you. Here are 10 of the best to be found in this cosmopolitan Canadian city.
A simple neighborhood favourite, Inglewood Pizza specializes in pizza made with a slightly thicker, Greek-style base. Toppings, however, tend to edge towards the more classic combinations, like Hawaiian-style ham and pineapple and pepperoni. If you’re looking for something other than pizza though, they also do a great range of baked lasanges and less traditional sides like chicken wings and ribs.

The more luxury option for thin-crust pizza is Una Pizza and Wine. Taking its inspiration from California, as well as the flavors of Spain, Italy and France, the pizza specials focus on the combination of good quality, fresh ingredients. Alongside the pizzas, there are also a good range of starters, a few tasty salads and a couple of tempting desserts, including a delicious chocolate and peanut butter terrine.
