Queen Margherita Pizza announces a third location—on Dundas West

In what’s amounting to a blitz of Toronto’s Neapolitan pizza scene, Queen Margherita Pizza’s John Chetti has leased a space for yet another new location west of Yonge. This one is at 772 Dundas Street West, just across the street from the recently opened Bent, bringing the total number of open or upcoming QMPs to three (the other west-end location, at Baby Point, was announced last week and is expected to open in October). The new location is only 10 to 15 minutes away from the original locations of the other big Neapolitan chains in the city, Pizzeria Libretto and Terroni, and just west of Pizzeria Via Mercanti, opened earlier this year by QMP exiles. QMP3’s oven may not even be built yet, but the pizza wars are clearly heating up. Expect the new spot to open its doors after the Baby Point location does, as soon as this fall.
