The Top 10 Pizzerias In Vancouver According To Our Happy Stomachs & Yours

IMG_1883

by Andrew Morrison | It’s been a few years now since Vancouver’s long overdue pizza renaissance began. If we had to pin a start date to it, it would be December 3rd, 2008, the day that Campagnolo  launched on Main Street.

For certain, there were already one or two places to get really good pizza in town (CinCin comes to mind), but Campagnolo signalled the start of what would eventually become a flood. And the torrent brought not only great pies, but also new intel and greater appreciation for the pizza-making process.

We learned, for example, what VPN stood for (Vera Pizza Napoletana – the association that certifies Neapolitan pizza “authenticity”), and we started to understand the flours mixes more and respect the provenance of the tomatoes that put zip in the sauce. We became mozzarella freaks, accepted the fact that good pizza seldom arrives in a box, and basically stuffed our faces happy in the knowledge that we never had to suffer the indignity of shitty pizza for lack of alternatives ever again. Truly, what a delicious difference five years makes! Vancouver is now fluent in Great Pizza, and has left the basic pidgin of Panago et al behind.

  1. Still cannot find the complete list anywhere — it won’t load – a snag at your end,
    And what is #6 on your list? It didn’t show up in the individual emails.

    I hope it is Farina, because if you missed that you missed something. And I would put it higher up anyhow.

  2. Try again, Cheryl. Farina is awesome. We have it listed at #5. Feel free to vote for it as your #1.

  3. I cannot find the complete list either. The link currently takes me to Bibo as #10…. Am I missing something?

  4. Perhaps Scout Magazine should take pride in how few readers know how to navigate slideshows? You’re clearly not getting the Buzzfeed crowd hanging around.

  5. Yes. It’s really good. Was very impressed by the mobile op as well. I would have tied it with Bibo/Novo for 10th

  6. Interesting that the most controversial thing about Scout’s top 10 pizza list is the web site navigation…

  7. @Keith. Yeah, there are still some complaints about the order etc, but it’s not so bad. We thought long and hard about this list, and we’re pretty happy with it. Great to see such a response on the reader poll, too.

Aside from assuring you that the place in question sells food, there are no hints. Why? Because it’s supposed to be hard! Good luck.
