Battle Results! Best Pizza Battle: Mississauga vs. Brampton
Have you been in the mood for a great pizza and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get one? Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one--especially when great pizza restaurants are plentiful across cities.
When it comes to great pizza, every ingredient counts. Is the dough soft and crunchy in all the right places? Is the cheese savoury and melted to perfection? Are the toppings tasty and creative while refraining from being too overwhelming?
Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes, and both offer a ton of excellent pizza joints--but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.
What places were competing?
Pizza is popular amongst people of all walks of life and for good reason--it's reliably delicious and almost impossible to make badly. If you're in the mood for pizza in Mississauga, you can check out the unassuming but always satisfying JP's Pizzeria, the chic--and always packed--Port Credit gem, Papa Giuseppe's, the long-standing (it's been around for over 40 years) and beloved Marconi Pizza, the elegant and date-worthy Goodfellas in Streetsville and our number one pick, the eternally popular Mickey's Pizza. Even though Mickey's is our number one, Mississauga is a great place to be when you're in the mood for pizza.

Anyone in the mood for the Italian mainstay won't be disappointed if they visit the quick, tasty and affordable Pizza Fiamma on McLaughlin Road, the always busy--and always satisfying--MacKay Pizza and Subs, the delicious mom and pop shop that is Venezia Pizza, the beloved (and You've Gotta Eat Here alum) That Italian Place, and our number one pick, the downtown gem that's known as Brampton's "slice of Italy," Gusto Pizzeria Inc.
