Best Pizza in Kingston

best pizza in kingstonAs far as I am aware, pizza is the food of the Gods. This dietary staple is an obsession of mine, and for as long as I can remember, I have proclaimed that I would be happy to eat pizza and nothing else if I were ever stranded on a desert island with an old volleyball.  In any given city, the types of pizza that can be found may be broken down into three distinct categories:

  • Gourmet: pricey establishments such as Woodenheads, and Atomica, where reservations are a must.
  • Franchise: fast food options such as Pizza Pizza, Boston Pizza, Dominos, Little Caesar`s etc…
  • Pizzeria: places that use real pizza ovens and also sell it by the slice. Doughballs included.

While I love a gourmet treat now and again, when the mood strikes at home, I can’t get enough traditional pizzaria-style pies delivered in those unmistakable generic, white boxes.  While we’ve previously debated where to get the best pizza in Kingston, this week’s poll question focuses the conversation on the city’s best pizzerias.  Accordingly:

The best pizzeria in Kingston is:

  • Paradiso (22%, 147 Votes)
  • Gino's (20%, 134 Votes)
  • Something else entirely. (20%, 134 Votes)
  • Tata's (20%, 129 Votes)
  • Bubba's (9%, 56 Votes)
  • Tony's (8%, 54 Votes)

Total Voters: 654

Creating a comprehensive list of places to get the best pizza in Kingston was a difficult task, while selecting a clear winner was nearly impossible for me.  My favourite place honestly changes based upon what I am craving, and I have to admit that I give most of my business to places that are closer to facilitate timely delivery of hot and fresh pizza.  One week I might prefer “Pizzeria A” because of their crust, while the next I might lean towards “Pizzaria B” based upon the richness of their sauce, choice of ingredients and so on.  In the end, I suppose it really comes down to flavour, but the history and atmosphere of local pizzerias also plays a role in attracting and retaining my business. Of course, the collection of order slips for the sake of free pizza in the future also plays a role in deciding who to give your business to.

How would you rate the competition amongst Kingston’s local pizzerias?  Which longstanding and new places do you prefer to give your business to, and which do you steer clear of?  What about the best place to get slice?  Do you wish you could get good deep dish in Kingston?  Just where does one go to get the best pizza in Kingston?
