PPS Celebrates 10 years of Pizza!

Two food lovers and a passion for pizza were inspired to open Pizzeria Prima Strada. Saturday August 4, 2018 marks the official day of the milestone anniversary. Can you believe it’s been 10 years?

A celebration always calls for bubbles! We’re thrilled to share the release of our vino della casa sparkling in partnership with Averill Creek Vineyard (affectionately referred to as PPS Frizzante) with our guests.

PPS Cook Street was designed with a warm, inviting dining room and an open kitchen.  Our guests experience a little taste of Italy while watching the pizzaioli in action. Ten years later, we’re as passionate and committed to quality as when we first opened. We’ve expanded our house made products from dough, sausage and meatballs to include pepperoni, gelato, sorbetto, cookies, cake, tesa, tiramisu & chili oil!

It’s friends, family and neighbours that help build and support local businesses. Grazie mille to our guests, fans and loyal pizza aficionados for dining with us (sometimes a few times a month, we know who you are…). We’re looking forward to another 10! Cin cin!

Cobblestone Carne pizza
Support the Cobblestone Pub – Eat Well Do Good

Bring your family, friends and neighbours – it takes a community!  Whether you’re heading up or down the island to take part in Canada Day activities, stop in for a pizza (dine in or take out!)!  PPS Cobble Hill is located RIGHT off the hwy.  Every little bit counts.  The donations from this event will help support the Cobblestone Staff while the pub remains closed undergoing construction.

Purchase the Cobblestone Carne Pizza at PPS Cobble Hill this Canada Day long weekend –  June 30, July 1 and 2 and PPS will donate $2 per pizza to the Cobblestone Pub.

On June 1st 2018, the Cobblestone Pub suffered major fire damage resulting in the community hub closing it’s doors for the summer. The pub has been operating since 1983 and we know you’ll agree – it’s an institution in the Cowichan Valley.

The Cobblestone Carne: Tomato, fresh mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, house ham, garlic, oregano – $21

No meat, no problem. We thought you might ask so we’ve prepared an excellent veggie option for $21.  Capricciosa Verde Supremo: basil pesto, peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, olives, fresh mozzarella.

PPS’ Eat Well Do Good campaigns benefit the great community organizations in the neighborhoods we live and work in. With the help of…

Summer Spritz, spritzes are back, Prima Strada cocktails
Summer of Spritz at PPS

Try one, or all! They are delicious, trust us.

Starting June 18th – it’s the Summer of Spritz at PPS and our new and improved line up is both tempting and delicious.  These 4 thirst-quenching beauties are ideal on the patio but honestly, just as refreshing indoors paired with the classic Magherita or perhaps the Rucola e crudo.

With a nod from the Cocktail Gods, our talented bartenders including Scott Wronko and former PPS staffer Garet Kay collectively inspired and enhanced these drinks!

Try our new Campari Chinotto, Blueberry, Mint-Basil or the classic Italian favourite Aperol Spritz. All PPS Spritz feature Prima Frizzante, made in the Cowichan Valley by our friends at Averill Creek.  We’re excited for you to try one, or all!  Let us know which one is your favourite by tagging #summerofspritz.
