Alberta’s Best Pizza Slice

Garlic Blog

Wondering where to get Alberta’s best pizza slice? Good news! Our Alberta Food Tours team loves pizza almost as much as we love doughnuts. So, here’s our list of the best pizza slices from Calgary to Edmonton and Banff to Canmore.  


Fourteen years since opening, UNA Pizza has four Calgary locations and one in Banff, and they show no sign of slowing down. With their thin and crispy crust, they are a Calgary pizza institution. Our favourite? Mushroom Pizza with fresh arugula.  

Pulcinella serves authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan pizza.  Our Community and Events Manager Nicole is a regular here. It’s always the Tartufo for her; a three-cheese white pizza with shaved truffle and an egg yolk oozing deliciousness. 

Mike Lange’s Noble Pie Pizza has a cult following, and rightly so.  This Beltline restaurant has only a few seats but, his online business is so brisk that you have to reserve, even for takeout.  The Saucy Mamma with fennel sausage is our favourite. 

Connie and John’s Pizza is a classic New York and Detroit-inspired pizza. It’s our go-to when we crave an authentic pepperoni. There are now three locations, including the latest in the University District. 

PizzaFace YYC just made the list of Canada’s Top 50 pizza places. Our pick? Mike’s Pickle.  IYKYK. Insider tip: Their sister restaurant, D.O.P., is one of the top Italian eateries in Calgary. Just book far in advance.


Sepps Pizza is old-school pizza greatness.  The ingredients speak for themselves with San Marzano tomatoes and house-cured pepperoni.  Our go-to is the double pepperoni.

Love Pizza has over 15 house-created pies that put a delicious spin on pizza.  From Tropical BBQ to Lemongrass Luau and vegan Holy Shitake, there is something for every pizza lover.

Edmonton’s Tony’s Pizza Place has been serving pizza in the capital for over 60 years. You can’t argue with that. It’s consistently great NYC-style pizza.

In the heart of Garneau, you will find Rosso Pizzeria.  They’ve served wood-fired goodness for over a decade.  And, their sister restaurant, Bianco, offers a few different varieties with same great quality.  

Campio Brewing Co.’s deep-dish-style pizza is legendary.  The Big McDavid (named after NHL Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid) is the big seller.  And, yes, Calgary hockey fans are jealous the Oilers made the play-offs and the Flames did not. 

At Leopard Pizza, all of the pies are slow-fermented and baked in a hand-built brick oven. Be sure to try the homemade dipping sauces with your pizza. 

Bow Valley

With a focus on local and fresh ingredients, Canmore’s Rocky Mountain Flatbread is our go-to spot for Flatbread. The Farmer’s Market flatbread is as healthy as pizza gets. RMF has been a long-time partner of Alberta Food Tours. You’ll often catch us starting our private tour Canmore Tasting Trail tours there. 

Rocket Pie, also in Canmore,  has one of our president, Karen’s, favourites, the Fennel and Sausage Calzone.

In Banff, we stop at Bear Street Tavern for the best slice in the park. The pizzas here are full of flavour, with a perfectly cooked thin crust. Try the Bison and you’ll also be tasting one of Alberta’s seven signature foods.

Our Banff guides say Lupo is where locals go for the best pizza. The fresh dough is made in-house, and you can taste it. Step outside the norm and try the Uncle Morty.
