You can’t talk about pizza in Calgary without mentioning Greek-style pizza, by far the most ubiquitous style of pizza in the city until thin-crust took over in the mid-‘00s. Spiros Pizza is a Calgary classic, serving up thick cheese-laden slices topped with pepperoni, ham, mushrooms and other classic pizza toppings.
Tops Pizza & Steakhouse South
One of Calgary’s most beloved neighbourhood pizzerias, Tops was founded over 50 years ago by Greek immigrant George Tsoulamanis, who came to this country with a dream and a vision of ultra-thick and cheesy pizza. Today the second generations of Tsoulamanises operate this friendly little restaurant, still serving formidable Greek-style pizzas — though thin-crust is now available for more modest appetites — along with other old-school entrées, pastas, sandwiches, and cocktails, all with a generous side of hospitality.
