Visitors to Toronto often choose the city based on its reputation for fantastic world-class cuisine, including its pizzas. Toronto offers a wide range of Italian-inspired fare, including various vegan and gluten free pizzas and pastas.
With so many options, it may be difficult to narrow down one’s choices. However, your search for Toronto’s perfect pizza is now easier than ever with my pick for the top Toronto pizza restaurant.
Garfield Eats: The World’s 1st Garfield Shaped Pizza in Toronto
Inspired by the beloved 1980s comic strip, Garfield Eats is downtown Toronto’s first Garfield shaped pizza. Located at 995 Bloor St W, the convenient downtown location is easily accessible from Ossington Station.
With a fun and lively atmosphere, Garfield Eats is the perfect place to bring the kids and family.
The restaurant is also fully interactive with their promise to make food ordering “entergaging” – entertaining + engaging. App users can play, watch, and order food at the same time, while collecting “paws,” a loyalty coin system, which unlocks Groupon offers, game levels, episodes, and more!
Whether you need pizza, spaghetti, or lasagna, Garfield Eats has something for everyone. They offer a large variety of foods, ranging from pizzas to lasagnas to classic spaghettis and their signature Garficcino coffees and smoothies. Among the must-try’s are Garfield potato tails. 3D Garfield dark chocolate, and the many innovative kid meals, such as the Big Cow lasagna.
Best of all, all meals are made from farm2plate (F2P) ingredients with environmentally friendly packaging, the Re-Box. In this innovative system, pizza boxes convert to pizza plates, lasagna boxes into tissue boxes, and fries boxes into travel packs. All ingredients are guaranteed on-GMOs, with no preservatives, hormones, artificial colours, orfertilizers.
Here is a list of some of my favourites!
Garfield Eats signature pizza, the Peroni Pizza, features select beef pepperoni topped with special sweet and sour balsamic red onions on Garfield Eats natural dough bed crowned with secret tomato sauce. Customers can also switch up the sauce to Garfield Secret Sauce with Truffle Oil, Garfield Secret BBQ Sauce, Jon Arbuckle Marinara, or Farm Pesto.

Another one of the must-try’s at Garfield Eats is the Beyond SpaghettiBolognese. This dish is perfect for vegans.Ground minced “beyond meat” is topped with a delicious secret sauce infused with farm plum tomatoes.

My favourite is Roy’sChicken Farm Salad, a colourful dish featuring leafy farm2plate salad double in Vitamin C and rich in fibre full of natural shredded carrots, orange paprika, spinach, lettuce, avocado, and tiny farm tomatoes crowned with special Garfield Eats kitchen-made Italian dressing. This salad is also available as a simple Farm Salad as well.Other options include the BBQ Steak Farm Salad with juicy strips of BBQ steak.
