Share A Slice At These Eight Pizza Parlors Across Canada
The words “Pizza” and “Takeout” are almost synonymous. Pizza lovers know the feeling of jubilation at the sound of a doorbell and the smell of a stack of hot n’ fresh ‘za’s turning up at your doorstep. The history of pizza begins in Italian antiquity, from basic flatbreads with several toppings and has since become a western staple. On February 9th we celebrate National Pizza Day, and whether it’s a gas-station Pepperoni Big Slice, a Deep-Dish Veggie Deluxe Supreme or an elevated wood-oven fig and goat cheese thin crust – Pizza is definitely here to stay on top of our takeout shortlists.
