I've been buying Metro pizza for years. It's really good, if you can find a location with staff that know how to make it. This deal was an instore special at the Pharmacy & Eglinton store in Toronto.

My local metro does not allow for call ahead so YMMV with that...

Pizza is ok just make sure that they cook it properly, last time i picked one up it was practically raw underneath, still had a whitish color.

Metro pizza is very hit or miss. It really depends on who's making it. Sometimes they'll have complete newbies other times it'll be older veteran workers. I've purchased from two locations in Etobicoke and both times the bottom was burnt. Does anyone recommend a location in the GTA? I drive around a lot for work .

My neighbourhood location in Scarborough Village (Markham/Eglinton) usually does a good job at making the pizzas and are always very busy on Wednesdays for that day's special.

Age of the pizza makers isn't a factor compared to them committed to their profession. I've often had very well made pizzas done by some younger staff, so it's all a matter of how serious they take their jobs.

Often at major supermarkets like this, I usually get quite rude and condescending attitude and lack of professionalism in service coming from the old ones, for various kinds of personal problems they have and are obviously not suited in any way for the purpose of "Customer Service". Conversely, the younger staff tend to be most friendly, approachable and helping.

Keep in mind, most pizza chains are always very hit or miss when it comes to how you get your pizza done. Especially when it comes to the discounted specials like 50% off or BOGO free, etc. (Cough, cough.....Pizza Hut, Dominos, Pizza Pizza). Those specific offers often you will see heavy skimpiness on toppings and cheese, asides from either undercooking or overcooking them from the location that you order it from.

I haven't actually ordered it in about a month since I'm now cooking almost everything I eat in lockdown. I'll find out Monday I guess. Bummer if they're no longer offering.

My go to toppings are Chicken, sundried tomato and either mushroom or black olives for the Metro pie. I don't know where else you can get sundried tomato as a topping without paying extra.

Hardest part is rolling out the dough (they have a machine for that), other then that everything comes already prepared. I can understand if they had to cut everything fresh but that's not the case anywhere you go.

I remember a small "mom and pop" place Vesuviana Pizza (Sentinel and Hucknall, North York area/across from CW Jeffreys) that used to squeeze fresh tomatoes for their sauce, you would see a small nonna in the back with a strainer, those kinds of places are all gone now, now many owners get stuff already made.

Just wanted to report that the Queen and Gladstone/Dufferin Metro has the $9.99 deal. The pizza maker had to confirm with the manager if it was still going on though, so I imagine it's been on for awhile.

Pizza was surprisingly very good. Crust was flaky like pizza hut, but not as greasy. Good portions of toppings and they didn't skimp out on the cheese either.

Thanks OP!

Fry the slices in a pan for a few seconds to make the crust nice and crispy!
Their Mammoth chickens are also on sale 8.99 which are really good

Thanks OP! Never would have thought to go to Metro to buy fresh pizza (Metro is not our regular grocery store, either, so wouldn't have noticed).

We've been itching for take out pizza for a few weeks, so tonight I called ahead and ordered two large at Metro in Barrhaven (Ottawa) - one pep, sausage, crumbled bacon, and onion, and the other red peppers, mushrooms, onion, and broccoli. They confirmed that they charge $1 per topping per pizza for extra. So two XL 4 topping pizzas for $22+tax! My wife picked them up.

Impressions - overall, pretty good pizza - i'd say better than PP/Little Caesar/Pizza Hut, not as tasty as Dominos, and not in the realm of "premium" pizzas like Colonnage or Gabriels - but not playing in that price class, either. .

Ours were both a little burned on the bottom, but still edible. The toppings weren't generous, but not skimpy either. They did miss adding the sausage, but they didn't charge for it either.

I don't know if regular price is under $20, but if so it's probably the best for under $20.
