For 65 years Mamma’s Pizza™ is Toronto’s favorite pizza. Founded by Lidia Danesi in 1957 and started as one of the very first Italian restaurants in Toronto known as Monte Carlo Restaurant – Mamma’s Pizza™
Lidia grew up in a small village atop a mountain in a town called Limano in the Tuscany region of Italy. She came to Canada, bringing Italian recipes passed on to her from her family. Lidia was often seen preparing pizza in the window. Customers were amazed with their first experience of biting into a fresh slice of pizza. They called her “Mamma, Queen of the Pizza’s” and that is how Mamma’s Pizza™ was created.
Ever since Mamma’s Pizza™ has been passed on to the second and third generation and today it is corporate held with franchise locations across the GTA and now spreading its wings across Ontario.
Since the beginning, the dough is made daily on the premises, along with fresh homemade sauces. Mamma’s Pizza™ offers customers a choice of two styles of pizza, traditional & Gourmet. Also on offer are fresh homemade pastas, meat and chicken dishes, as well as a selection of hot sandwiches and fresh salads.
