First Taste of Local Pizzaiolo

A great new addition to the Kitsilano neighbourhood, this new spot is owned by a couple of chefs with years of experience in the pizza realm. They started out by offering Pizza Catering and now they have just added a Dine-in component at a physical location. They are located inside Vera’s Burger Shack that has been in that location for many years; here they are fortunate to share the space allowing diners to enjoy pizza as well as burgers and other items during their visit.

As a true pizza lover, I had a tasty dinner starting off with a root beer before indulging in some of their pizzas.

I loved The Sweet & Spicy with a Squash base topped with gorgonzola, spicy nduja sausage, basilico, pecorino, and mozzarella; this was outstanding, loved the flavours and the perfect crust.

I also love The Green Cluck with a Basil pesto base topped with auteed chicken breast, roasted potatoes, roasted shallots, and mozzarella; another winner with ingredients that went so well together.

They are also offering some dessert pizzas and this one is the Nutella Pizza that is made with their same tasty crust topped with Nutella and Pistachio Cream Drizzle, and Crumbled cookies.

Local Pizzaiolo is located at 1925 Cornwall Ave in Vancouver, you can follow them on Instagram @localpizzaiolo
