Omo. How come I’ve never been here till now? I have searched high and low in Vancouver for deep dish pizza and that’s tough in a town that loves their artisanal italian style flat crust pizza, which (yawn) doesn’t tickle my pizza meter much.
Wouldn’t you know it, my fellow yelpers came to the rescue as usual. My search led me to a seemingly sketchy part of town (ok, it was dark) and to a little hole in the wall. You would definitely miss it driving down the busy intersection of Main and Broadway. I had to circle back even when I was following my gps!
A small pizza starts at about $7 but comes to about $10 after you pick two toppings. A little high if you were just looking for a slice or two. After a short wait for a freshly made pizza, I was surprised to be handed a small box that weighed about 3-5 lbs. I couldn’t wait to get it home.
Sure enough, this was the closest thing to my dreams of chicago style pizza. It was loaded with cheese and had a nice brown crust on the edges. My two toppings of pineapple and capicolli underneath were tasty. My only suggestion is to make sure you have something to drink as it was on the saltier side, maybe because of all that yummy cheese.
With a little hot sauce and some nori flakes, it was mind blowing. If I wasn’t watching my salt intake, this pizza would be one of my favourite comfort foods. I could only finish two slices and it was just as good reheated the next day.
It’s hard resisting the urge to go back there right now.
This is simple stuff your face pizza. Don’t expect any of that fancy stuff like arugula and goat cheese.
