Two Canadian restaurants make list of best pizzas in the world

Dec 21 2022, 6:22 pm

You know we love a good ranking, and one just came up on our radar that gives a major shoutout to not one but two Canadian restaurants.

That’s right, a pair of pie-slinging joints have made Big 7 Travel’s list of 50 Best Pizzas In The World 2022.

Coming in at a whopping #4 was Toronto’s The Good Son.

This spot, which operates two locations in the Ontario city (Queen West and Shops At Don Mills) was praised by Big 7 for not having “a bad pizza” on its menu.

When it comes to specific creations, the outlet recommends the Mauna Loa, which is a take on Hawaiian pizza made with smoked pork cheek, roasted pineapple, and scotch bonnet.

The other Canadian spot on the list is located in none other than Edmonton, Alberta.

Located in Northwest YEG, Rosso Pizzeria came in at #12 on the ranking.

It was given a shoutout for using unbleached, non-GMO “OO” organic flour and top-notch ingredients.

A pie that was highlighted by Big 7 includes the Canadese, a pizza from the breakfast menu, topped with Yukon gold potatoes, pancetta, mozzarella fior di latte, rosemary oil, and an over-easy egg.

Fittingly, the top pizza on the list hailed from Naples, Italy. There were morsels from around the globe included on the full list.

According to Big 7, this list was created using a ranking system that “considers editorial experience, critic reviews, customer feedback, location and accessibility, presentation, value for money and atmosphere.”
