Mickey’s Pizza - #1 Pizza in Mississauga
The only pizza joint that has been visited by “You Gotta Eat Here” is Mickeys Pizza, and with good reason. Mickey’s is located in Clarkson, a quaint village located in the most southwest area of Mississauga in a small and unassuming plaza. Just look out for their mascot — a giant inflatable green dragon perched on top of the building. Mickey’s serves traditional pizzas plus what they call a “Killer King,” which is a deep dish Chicago-style pizza for the hungry Chi Town-style pizza lovers. They use the best ingredients possible. The dough is made in house, they use ingredients like extra virgin olive oil and they cook their meat right on the grill before it goes into your pizza.
Tavolo - #1 Pizza in Oakville
One bite made me forget I was in an outdated shopping mall most frequented by my mom (and other seniors) and students on lunch break. This pizza was sublime. Tavolo, a longtime favourite, has been wowing Oakville diners who typically frequent other fabulous restos owned by Catch Hospitality Group. Try flagging a server on a Sunday night — it’s insanely busy. The pizza alone was worth the wait - fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients and that combination of margherita pizza plus salami — duuuuuude.
