I don't think there are any great pizza chains anywhere (never mind in Canada). There are so many good indie or small-chain places.
Have to agree with Furry on this one. The best pizza I've ever eaten is the pizza from Nick's
, both from their restaurant by McMahon Stadium and from their south-side takeaway. Next time you're in Calgary, order the all-meat Number 26, the "Petros".
Apropos of nothing in particular, I think it was the son of the restaurant's founder, Tim Petros, who played as a fullback for the Stampeders in the early Nineties, and his jersey number was also 26.
