A thin, blistered crust. Ovals of melted mozzarella. Sweet tomato sauce perfumed with basil. Before you get all slim and trim for the upcoming season, order a pizza, the ultimate comfort food, from one of these 5 great pizzerias in Kitsilano. Best to enjoy it guilt free.
1. Bibo Pizzeria con Cucina
1835 West 4th Avenue, (604) 568-6177, Thebibo.com
Serving authentic Neapolitan pizzas, this Italian-owned hotspot also sells Italian groceries. Add to that a good wine list, a kids menu, and classic Italian movies running in the background, and you’ve got yourself a perfect spot for pie.
2. Double DD Pizza
3510 West 4th Avenue, (604) 736-7001, Ddpizza.ca
Since the 1980s, this family-run Greek restaurant has been dishing out generous portions of home-style souvlakis, pastas, and pizzas to hungry Kits residents. Easy to remember name, gluten-free options, and free delivery. What’s not to like?
3. Napoletana Pizza and Gelato
2576 Arbutus Street, (604) 736-9800, Enjoyfresh.net
This is a family-owned neighbourhood pizzeria with a welcoming, friendly service, and beautiful gelato (which is also available for delivery!). Their pizza ingredients are super fresh and much of it organic.
1525 Yew Street, (604) 734-0099, Nooktakeaway.com
Fire-roasted thin-crust pizzas a block from the beach, and an Italian weekend brunch too. See more of our news on Nook here.
5. NOVO Pizzeria & Wine Bar
2118 Burrard Street, (604) 736-2220, Novopizzeria.com
Also Italian owned, with authentic Neapolitan pizzas and house-made pastas, NOVO is consistently a favourite and rightly so. Plus it’s conveniently located just a few steps from Fifth Avenue Cinemas.
