Deep dish pizza in Toronto may not be true to the pies you'll find in Chicago but are delicious in their own right. These pies are cooked in deep pans and layered to the nines with toppings. From Detroit-style to the completely outrageous, these restaurant offerings will leave you stuffed.
Here are my picks for the top restaurants for deep dish pizza in Toronto.

Every Wednesday this King West eatery is dishing out a new flavour of personal sized deep dish pizza. Indulge in weekly specials of classic pepperoni, steak and mushroom and even roasted cauliflower and gorgonzola.
Detroit-style deep dish pizza is served up at this Leslieville pizza joint. These pies take pizza to a whole new level with caramelized crusts, crushed tomato sauce and delicious meat toppings like soppressata.

A perfect late night indulgence, the mini deep dish pizzas at this Dundas West joint are topped with everything from creamy cheddar mac and cheese and Dr. Pepper pulled pork to spicy chicken and blue cheese slaw.
This Leslieville pizzeria and ice cream parlour slings Regina-style deep dish - pizza with a biscuit like crust pressed into a special round pan. Once pressed the pies are loaded with an obscene amount of toppings.
Deep dish from this chain comes in the form of The Godfather pizza which is filled to the brim with bacon, parmigiano cheese, pepperoni, sausage, mozzarella and tomato sauce. If this doesn't strike your fancy you can always customize your own.
