Halifax has many mouth-watering pizzerias for you to check out. Whether you’re into gourmet, locally-sourced pizzas or the gooey, cheesy fast food pizzas, there’s no shortage of places to check out.
Here are 10 places and pizzas I’d recommend:
I went with my favourite pizza on the menu at Piatto: the Stephanie, which is made with soft goat cheese, crispy prosciutto, caramelized pears, Grana Padano, and features a drizzle of balsamic reduction. The standards at Piatto are very high – it’s the only pizzeria with VPN certification, meaning their pizzas are made the Neapolitan way.
Location: 5114 Morris Street, Halifax
I had the Blue pizza here: blue cheese, mozzarella, prosciutto, and arugula. Absolutely fantastic, but what else do you expect from a hip pizzeria that’s been featured on the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here?
Location: 5212 Morris Street, Halifax
Freeman’s Little New York is one of my favourite places in Halifax. I definitely recommend the House Speciality: Italian sausage, feta, tomato, green peppers and red onion. Freeman’s has been making delicious food for 60 years.
Location: 1726 Grafton Street, Halifax
Cheesy and greasy pizza, just like you would want from a slice after a late night downtown. I tried the famous donair pizza, and I can’t recommend it enough.
Location: 1735 Grafton Street, Halifax
Monterey Jack, mozzarella, ground beef and red onions combine to make the delicious Chicago Jack pizza. Gooey and perfectly prepared, make sure you try Alexandra’s.
Location: 1263 Queen Street, Halifax
I’d never tried Pizzatown before this quest, but I have to say that the Chicken Parmesan Pizza is one of the better pies I’ve had in Halifax. I had a small pie delivered to me, and took great relish in eating this garlicky, chicken pizza.

The Jessy’s Bubba Donair pizza is out-of-this-world delicious. It’s my go-to pizza when I’m feeling like eating here (must have something to do with the fact that my name is Jess and I call my younger brother ‘Bubba’). Head to the North End and try for yourself!

A new, hip venture in the Hydrostone district, Mother’s has delicious pizzas on the menu with plenty of options. I went with the Spiced Pork Shoulder Pizza (pork shoulder, caramelized onions, and mozzarella cheese) and my friend sampled the Salami, Feta, Onion pie. Both were delicious.
Location: 5710 Young Street, Halifax
Also nestled in the Hydrostone district is staple pizza place Salvatore’s. Go here for delicious Italian pizzas. I tried a white pizza here (no tomato sauce) called the Miguel (Spanish onions, fresh mushrooms, Romano, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese with sweet basil and roasted garlic), and it was the best pizza I tried during the entire quest.
Location: 5541 Young Street, Halifax
I’m a fan of spicy foods, so when I saw the Southern Belle gourmet pizza on Bramoso’s menu, I immediately ordered it. This pizza featured roasted chicken covered in Frank’s hot sauce, smoked bacon, red onions, celery, and smothered in asiago, Parmesan, and Gorgonzola cheeses. So good – you should definitely try it if you’re in the Quinpool District.
