First Taste of La Ruota Cambie Village

Specializing in Neapolitan-style pizza on a handmade crust, with a couple of dozen topping options, including several meat based selections as well as vegetarian selections.

Owners of this location are Merve and Mustafa Yilmaz and Gulsah and Kubilay Demirel (shown above).

It’s all about slices and whole pizza pies that are artisan, and hand-crafted. Their pizzas are cooked in a stone hearth oven heated to 900 degrees, which allows them to achieve perfect crispness and lightness.

I have tried several of their regular crust pizza slices here including the tasty Mushroom Gorgonzola with pesto and Pepperoni with basil and honey; as well as the tasty Pollo piccante pizza and Vegetarian with tomato sauce. I also tried the Potato pizza and the tasty Pancetta, pear and arugula.

Any type of pizza can be made with a 10” gluten-free cauliflower crust.

In addition to their set pizza offerings, they also feature a “Create Your Own Pizza” available in two sizes; offering up a few different base sauces, favourite and premium toppings and some drizzles and spices. They also offer some salads, garlic bread, a couple of pasta and more.

La Ruota is located at 2325 Cambie Street in Vancouver. You can follow them on Instagram @laruotacambie
