Pizza Thick closing up Leslieville shop

Pizza Thick is closing up its Queen East shop. 

Inspired by the prairies, made in Toronto and loved by many east enders, the pizzeria, known for its Regina-style deep dish, is being pressured out of the space by the building landlord.

"There are plans in the works to renovate the space, and unfortunately, those plans don't include us," said co-owner Amylee Silva. "We will still have the west end location till I potentially find us another home in the east."

Once regular customers, Silva and her business partner Michael Kolkas bought the shop nearly a year and a half ago, and have built a loyal following hungry for its pizzas piled high with toppings on a flaky crust. 

Pizza Thick's last day is April 9, and Silva says they're saying farewell with promos and sales on, so go give them a visit one last time.
