A favourite Toronto pizzeria is reopening in a new location

Conspiracy Pizza closed its doors last December over a rift with space it shared with Adamson Barbecue. The pizzeria has since found a new location at 856 Eglinton Ave. E. and will be reopening soon.

While there is no business connection between Adamson Barbecue and Conspiracy Pizza, the pizza shop felt obliged to close its doors after a social media storm put both restaurants in the middle of pandemic controversy.

“It has become clear that we can no longer guarantee the safety of our staff or customers in the face of a quickly escalating pandemic,” owner Dan Rios wrote in a letter posted on the former Conspiracy Pizza website.

Rios also weighed in on food delivery prices digging into pizza profits throughout the pandemic, and has been vocal about the fees that delivery apps charge restaurants. Premier Doug Ford capped food delivery prices during the pandemic, but many estimate that it will take restaurants months to recover from the current economic setback.

The news that the pizzeria will be returning is more than welcome and an excellent way to kick off the spring season for pizza fans. “We should be open for the start of June, barring any major delays,” says Rios.
