JUST EAT finds Canada’s pizza capitals year-round are Hamilton, Halifax and Ottawa
With colder weather and hectic schedules, fall is the perfect time to enjoy the comfort of the savoury and delicious pizza pie. In fact, annual JUST EAT pizza orders peak in October on Halloween night! When it comes to the love of pizza, Halifax, Hamilton and Ottawa are the undisputed, year-round pizza capitals of Canada, reports JUST EAT.
“Halifax leads the land in paying homage to the pie. Nearly 47 per cent of their total JUST EAT orders are for pizza delivery,” says Aaron Davis, Marketing Director, JUST EAT Canada. “Second in devotion to the crust, is Ottawa with 32 per cent. And, a close third is Hamilton, with 26 per cent of JUST EAT’s orders for cheesy, delicious pizza.”
Canada’s Top 10 pizza cities according to JUST EAT:
- Halifax (47 per cent)
- Ottawa (32 per cent)
- Hamilton (26 per cent)
- Kitchener-Waterloo (24 per cent)
- London (16 per cent)
- Kingston (16 per cent)
- Vancouver (16 per cent)
- Guelph (15 per cent)
- Montreal (13 per cent)
- Toronto (10 per cent)
Davis says that Halifax, Canada’s number one pizza ordering city, prefers the pleasure of a simple cheese pizza. Second-ranked Ottawa favours the pepperoni, bacon and mushroom-laden Canadian. The unique shawarma pizza featuring chicken and olives is Hamilton’s favourite! Meanwhile in Toronto, pizza lovers are most likely to pick veggie pizzas when ordering in. The most popular pizza topping in all of Canada is the classic meat-lovers pizza.
When it comes to dressing up their pizzas, Canadians get creative with gourmet options: grilled chicken, gorgonzola and spinach are growing trends among JUST EAT customers and restaurants. When it comes to crust preferences, only a measly 0.05 per cent of Canadians order whole wheat dough. Instead, 90 per cent of Canadians prefer the classic crust, two per cent order thick crust or wood-fired pizzas and seven per cent go for deep dish pizza indulgence.
