Straight outta Brooklyn
350 Robson Street, Vancouver
Style of Pizza: New York style
The “New York Pizza” dates back to 1905 when Gennaro Lombardi, an immigrant pizzaiolo from Naples, began to serve pizza in his Little Italy grocery store. Lombardi created a unique pizza style similar to that from the old country. He still focused on a thin crust and high quality ingredients, but his pizzas were served ‘to go’ and ‘by the slice’. His influence led to the emergence of Italian American Pizzaiolos who began to make quality slices all over the immigrant neighbourhoods in Brooklyn. To this day, Brooklyn is renowned for having New York’s best pizza. Our aim is to bring a little New York to Vancouver by giving you an experience that is straight outta Brooklyn…

Style of Pizza: Roman
ZeroZero is an authentic Roman style Pizzeria located in central Gastown, Vancouver. We offer a wide selection of healthy pizzas made fresh to order, by the slice or pie. ZeroZero prides itself in creating the perfect crust that is both crunchy and bubbly, set to rest for 72 hours until the dough has risen to perfection. Using gourmet ingredients such as buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto and eggplant marmellata to create decadent and mouth-watering pizzas, ZeroZero is the perfect place to come for lunch or dinner if you want to enjoy a traditional taste of Rome right here in Vancouver.

Style of Pizza: New York style real Italian pizza.
It starts with our traditional dough recipe, made right on site. Our pizza is hand stretched and baked directly on a stone for a light and healthy, authentic Italian crust. We spare no expense, using only the highest quality ingredients. Fresh vegetables, high quality mozzarella cheese, and imported meats help to create flavours and textures found only in Italy.

Our pizzas are prepared fresh in house, and roasted to perfection in our wood fire pizza oven.
