Best Pizza in YVR?

Pollo Jun 26, 2007 10:02 PM

Looking for suggestions for most "authentic" / "best" pizza in Vancouver....way back (10+ years) Incendio in Gastown used to make good pies....is it still the case?

    I am replying so I can track this one because I have yet to find the best za in the lower mainland unless it is coming out of my kitchen.
    There lies the dilemma when I feel like pizza I do not feel like making it.
    lately I have been into a thin crust wood fired type.

        The last time I was at Cardero's in coal harbour they made a pretty tasty personal size pizza

            I like Amadeus, just off Granville Island. Nothing fancy, but nice thin crust.

                    Flying Wedge has barely OK pizza and the delivery service is so flaky as to make it fall off the list of possibilities. I think the last straw for us was when they called us back 40 minutes after we ordered and said "Uh, y'know, can you come pick up your pizza. Our delivery guy's car battery just died." Uh, no. We don't own a car. We can't come get our pizza you bloody gits.
                    Anyway. We liked Martini's on Broadway. Especially the Special, which has smoked meat on it (among many other things) and my choice of Spinach Feta and Tomato.

                      Nats, Nats, and Nats......Flying Wedge would not fall into the "authentic" category. good exotic choices but a bit greasy for me. Marcellos definetly has good pie and great grilled calamari appetizer not to mention pastas. but my choice for best pizza is definetly Nats..............and the veal parmesan sub is a personal fave if your not in the mood for pie..............make sure you get the hot banana peppers
