Mississauga is becoming a great home for good pizza. I have searched high and low in the city to help you satisfy your pizza craving no matter what style of pizza you want and here is my list of the top five pizza places.

5 - Papa Giuseppe's

You can't really miss this quaint little restaurant that's located in the heart of Port Credit. If you are one of the lucky people who actually get a seat, you are in for a treat. This place has a rustic Italian-inspired dining room and is a great spot to enjoy your pizza, which is cooked in a stone oven. They have a variety of pizzas -- including a gluten free crust option -- and it's the only pizza place on the list that supplies super cool pizza scissors.

What you need to try: Tre Porcelini
(Italian sausage, spicy sopressata, Pancetta, mozzarella, and pomodoro sauce)

4 - Pizza Nostra - Port Credit

Nostra means “our” in Italian and the resto’s name translates to “Our Pizza."  Their speciality is New Jersey style pizza and hoagies.  What makes Jersey-style pizza different from the rest is the crust. Notable for its crispy and chewy texture, it takes eight minutes to cook in Nostra’s stone ovens. The Grande brothers make all of their ingredients from scratch, from the cured meats to the sauce and dough used for both the pizza and hoagies. Many of the ingredients, including the cheese and meat, are hand-cut. 

3 - Marconi

Nestled in a corner plaza at Cawthra and Burnhamthorpe, Marconi's has been around for over 40 years. Everything from their fresh-from-the-butcher pepperoni, authentic mozzarella (with no substitute cheeses!), freshly sliced mushrooms (which have never seen the inside of a can), individually wrapped green peppers to their very own and very special pizza sauce is excellent. You can tell from your first bite that these guys care about quality and take the time to make a great pizza.

What you need to try: "Super"
(Pepperoni, mushroom, onions, salami and bacon) 

2 - Goodfellas

Goodfellas Pizza, located in Streetsville, is the first restaurant to offer authentic Neapolitan wood oven pizza in Mississauga. True Neapolitan pizza constitutes key components, including the specific ingredients, preparation, and cooking technique involved in making the pizza. It is made from a wheat flour known as Italian dopio zero flour, and the pizza is cooked in a wood-fired oven at temperatures above 900 degrees Fahrenheit. And it's quite a sight to see your personal Neapolitan pizza being cooked, right before your eyes, in 90 seconds flat.  The menu consists of a variety of authentic pizzas, including the Margherita Pizza, which is topped with San Marzano sauce, mozzarella fiore di latte, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil.

What you need to try: Prosciutto Arugula
(Mozzarella di bufala, fresh tomato, proscuitto crudo, fresh arugula, shaved parmeggiano reggiano flakes, and extra virgin oil)

1 - JP Pizzeria

Located on the very northwest side of Mississauga, JP Pizzeria is a completely random find that I stumbled across while driving through the 'burbs. I didn't think much of it, as it looked like a typical takeout pizza joint with a counter and a few seats. We ordered one of their signature pizzas called "The Super" that comes with pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, bacon and smoked ham. Let me tell you, it was one of the best pizzas I've had in Mississauga. Everything is fresh, from the hand-kneaded dough to the pizza sauce. Go out of your way to the west side to try this gem.

What you have to try: "The Super" 
(Pepperoni, mushroom, onions, green peppers, bacon and smoked ham)
