What could be better than a half dozen great slices of Pizza in one night? Hungry diners got to experience just that last night on Vancouver Foodster’s Pizza Palooza 2017.
Checking in at Dogwood Brewing, patron’s collected their Pizza Palooza and headed out on a tour of some of the best and brightest pizzeria’s Vancouver has to offer.
We experienced New York Slices, Neapolitan, Roman, and even a South Asian take on the pizza.
First up was Dogwood Brewing, a hidden oasis, Vancouver’s only organic brewery packed the house by offering a taster of their brewed-on-site beers along with a bite of the house-made Rocky Mountain Flatbread pizzas
At Kalai’s Dosa Hut, on Fraser Street, the Pizza Dossa brought a touch of South Asian flavour to Pizza Palooza. The thin, light gluten-free dosa was topped with fresh veggies and cheese.
Straight Outta Brooklyn at Fraser and Kingsway served up their always satisfying slices of Classic (Pepperoni), Original (Margherita) and White (4 Cheese).
Ragazzi Pizza Co. is a great little neighbourhood pizzeria serving up “Real Italian Pizza” and from the comments as other diners left their pair of slices were indeed at hit; Carbonara (Garlic, Black Pepper, Pancetta, Bocconcini)tasting just like the pasta, and spicy Arrabiata (Salami, Capicollo, ONions, Chilli Flakes, Mozzarella)
ZeroZero Pizzeria is the go to place near International Village and always offers unique and creative toppings like last nights Chorizo and Brussel Sprouts (Spicy Sausage and Crispy, Grilled Spouts) and the Pomodoro (Fresh & Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Oregano and Mozzarella)
The recently opened, Firecrust Neapolitan Pizzeria was our last stop and was a treat for the senses. Firecrust makes your pizza to order so you can watch it come to life right in front of you. Choose from the menu selections like our Quattro Formaggi (Fior di Latte, Romano, Gorgonzola, Ricotta and Extra Virgin Olive Oil base) and Siciliana (Italian Sausage, Ham, Prisciutto, San Marzano Tomato Sauce, Fior di Latte, Romano and Extra Virgin Olive Oil). Or select your own toppings to create your own pizza to go into the Brick Oven.
After all that Pizza the last thing we want to think of is more food but if tasting tours like this are of interest check out Vancouver Foodster’s Tasting Plates 5th Anniversary in Downtown Vancouver
