Best Pizza in Vancouver

GREAT pizza in Vancouver has become an expectation. In the past several years, the ‘wood-fired oven’ scene has erupted, beginning with Nicli back in 2012. They became the second pizzeria in Canada to receive a Vera Napoletana Pizzeria certificate, meaning they adhere to the long-standing pizza-making code of Naples, birthplace of this modern-day indulgence. Certification is a great accomplishment…however, we’ve relied on our discerning tastebuds to create a HOT LIST of establishments who are pumping out the BEST in town. Buon appetito!

At this upscale restaurant where most dishes are pretty darn delicious, the Black Truffle Pizza is a stand-out. Its powerful scent and flavour is absolutely intoxicating. The avocado-rimmed, gingery tuna tartare is also a huge must-try.

A bustling establishment perfect for large parties or a duo looking for a quick glass of red and a pizza at the bar. Ninety eight percent of their menu item can be gluten free - that includes pasta, bread and pizza. And it's absolutely no sacrifice.

The brightly tiled wood-fired oven is as beautiful as the pizza. Owned and run by an Italian family, expect authentic Napoli style with "the correct" ingredients.

Pizzeria Farina

Pizzeria Farina Interior

915 Main St. | 604-681-9334 $$ |

A diamond in the rough serving solid pizza until they run out of dough -- which happens just about nightly. Order at the counter, seat yourself and drink wine from short glasses, Italian-style.

Campagnolo (Main St)

1020 Main St. | 604-484-6018 $$ | Italian

@campagnolomain | Visit website

Super-cool space with an industrial-style feel caused by funky cement walls and exposed wood beams. Start with the crispy ceci (deep-fried chick peas and possibly the most amazing appetizer you will ever eat in your life) then move onto wood-fired pizza. A very good option for pre and post Rogers Arena events.

Pizzeria Barbarella

654 E Broadway | 604-210-6111 $$ | Pizzeria

The Bibo

Bella Yaletown Pizzeria

Owner and gelato maestro James Coleridge is famous for his gelato. Trust a man with such a palate to serve excellent Napoletana-style pizza, as well. The Parmigiano he sources is aged 36 months, tomatoes are of course San Marzano D.O.P. and gluten-free dough is available.

The Parlour

1011 Hamilton St | 604-568-3322 $$ | Comfort Food

@parlouryaletown | Visit website

Pizza purists might not approve, but how can you go wrong with caramelized onion, minced mushroom, Yukon gold potato, truffle oil, gruyere and mozza on dough? These ingredients describe 'Goldmember', one of The Parlour's 12 out-of-the-box creations that taste especially good in the wee hours of the morning. Dine-in, pick-up or stay on the couch and opt for delivery.
