Whether you’re thinking about your waistline, or following a vegan diet, you’ll be delighted by the healthy choices at Pizza Pi. Not only are most of the ingredients organic, but there are also choices like vegan soy cheese and gluten-free and whole-wheat crust. While Pizza Pi has created a delicious menu of its own pizza configurations (think local smoky bacon, aged Canadian cheddar, broccoli florets and parsley), you can also build your own pie by choosing from eight different cheeses, a myriad of meats (from house meatballs to smoked wild salmon), and a vast variety of veggies. All pizzas can be enjoyed as calzones, and there’s a handful of other dishes on the menu such as lasagna, baked goats cheese and focaccia bread. And for dessert? The Italian favourite gelati is always available!
Strong commitment to the community
Pizza Pi is 100 per cent locally owned and operated, and strives to support other local businesses, while providing healthy, convenient food for the community. The pizza parlor purchases as much seasonal produce from local farmers as possible, while honouring organic and wild principals of preparation. Cheese, eggs, honey, meat and fish also come from local purveyors whenever possible. Pizza Pi looks out for the environment by keeping waste to a minimum, and composting and recycling 80 per cent of materials, and offering customers biodegradable cutlery and plates. And if you order delivery, there won’t be a car idling outside of your home: All Pizza Pi deliveries are made using foot power and electronic bikes.
Fresh, B.C. vibe
The local flavour at Pizza Pi is not only in the pies, but also in the décor. You can’t miss the restaurant on busy Douglas Street, thanks to the life-size, one-of-a-kind pi man sculpture, which was created out of old pizza pans by a local artist, and always displays the daily specials. On the inside, the space is unlike any other pizza joint, from the healthy bamboo to the thick wooden box stools. All of the furniture was handmade by a local artisan using recycled timbers. The outdoorsy B.C. style can also be seen on the moss green walls, which feature a rotating collection of pieces by local artists with a focus on nature themes.
