So what you're looking for is a Greek-style pizza, then?

Manie's on 17th Ave SW (Mount Royal Village)
Lorenzo's on 17th (close to 4th) (has a few different crust options)
Niko's on 11th St. (down from Galaxie Diner)
4th St. Pizza in Mission
Volo's in Bankview (I think it's Bankview) also does a thicker pizza.

Nick's or Matador are a little farther in the NW but they could check the boxes for you.

Drop the mic and walk away....one of the top 3 in the city IMO.

I don't know what it is, but there's something about Volo's that I don't care for. It's fine, but I don't find it great.

It isn't for everybody but its hard to find greek style places much better.

That is my favourite pizza joint in the neighbourhood, for sure. The OP asked for thicker pizzas, which is why I didn't recommend it, but man, it is good. I miss Vogglio de Pizza on 14th, their olive and oregano pizza was amazing.

Yeah, reading comprehension fail on my part. For thick pizza it's Niko's, but everyone should try Gaga. The spinach, olive, prosciutto and figs is my favourite.

I'll throw another vote in for Volos.
