Fantasy Pizza is Back!

PPS Fantasy Pizza – what’s that you ask? Let us tell you …

For over 10 years now we’ve been asked about those “other” toppings. Pineapple seems to be the number one item that people request on pizza. We don’t get it…tropical fruit on pizza is not Italian.

Last year was our first year running a Fantasy Pizza Night and what a night!  PPS fans enjoyed Taco, Perogi, Hawaiian, Donair and even a dessert pizza that evening. This year, we’ve decided to feature a new ‘Fantasy Pizza’ each week for a whole month in all of our pizzerias!

At PPS, we stick with the traditional and use ingredients typically found on or inspired by traditional Neapolitan pizza. But, our Executive Chef and his team got a little crazy (or as they say in Italian, pazzo) and have been introducing toppings to pizzas you’ve never seen in our pizzerias before. And we’re doing it Prima Strada style.

It gets better, our crew in PPS production will be featuring Fantasy gelato all month too. Get excited, we sure are.  See you in February!

House Made Goods To Go

PPS house made goods now available to go! Order online for pick up from your favourite PPS location – it’s that easy.

We couldn’t think of a better way to start 2019 than to share a few of our delicious house made goods with you. The truth is we’ve been taking these tasty items home with us for years now. We figured why not share with our fans?

Granted, you don’t have to be a PPS Aficionado (although it helps…) to love our fennel sausage, pepperoni, olives and chilli oil. Traditionally served on or with our wood-fired pizza, all are made in house and they’re good. Really good.

Here’s how we’ve been serving them up at home:

Olives and Pepperoni for snacks and lunches – add olives, slices of pepperoni, few pieces of Parm and an apple – yum! Sausage for breakfast, lunch and dinner too! Pan fry the links along with an egg for breakfast or brunch. For dinner add sliced yellow and red peppers, onions and garlic or crumble it and toss with pasta, Parm and a handful of arugula.

We’d love to know what you make -please let us know by sharing your comments!

Year in Review 2018 – PPS by the numbers!

Yes, it’s the PPS Year in Review 2018! Before we jump into 2019, let’s forget the resolutions and savour some of the really good things from 2018. By good things of course we mean pizza!

Our sincere thanks for making 2018 so memorable.  We’re lucky to have an amazing community and we’re beyond grateful for your support. We wouldn’t be where we are without you!

2018 marked the 10th year of Pizzeria Prima Strada and we celebrated with bubbles! Our newest house wine, PPS Frizzante, continues our partnership with Averill Creek Vineyard. PPS Frizzante is 100% estate grown in the Cowichan Valley, right here on Vancouver Island! Salute! Along with the many pizzas, we’re proud to have served up our house made products (made with love by hand). In addition to dough our team made pans of gelato and sorbetto and miles of pepperoni!

Our communities – with three locations on Vancouver Island, we were fortunate to contribute to many the schools, sports and local programs in the neighbourhoods we live and work in. A few highlights from 2018: winning the Golden Garbage Award for most trash pick up on Earth Day, adding a Little Free Library to PPS Fort St.,…

PPS Wins Times Colonist’s BEST PIZZA

We’re humbled to be named Best Pizza and #2 Best Italian in the 2018 Victoria Times Colonist Readers Choice Awards. Wow! Thank you Victoria!

When we get awards, we’re flattered and honoured.  We want to share it too. It’s not often we blow our own horn. Staying focused on serving great pizza is our priority. We promise, we’re still focused on pizza but are going to take a moment to boast. Yep, we said boast. We’re loud and we’re proud!

Honestly, we’re thrilled to be a recognized and look forward to sharing many more pizza memories with you, our fans in 2019. Grazie mille Victoria!

Little Free Library at PPS Fort

Take a book, leave a book, or simply have a look.

It’s no surprise that we’re a group of readers at PPS. We especially love sharing a good cookbook. Our Little Free Libraries are designed to bring our neighbours together, inspire all ages and spark recycling efforts. It also gives us an opportunity to share the books we read, enjoy and want to share. We’ve loaded our newly built library at PPS Fort Street with donated cookbooks, kids books and some of our favourites. We hope you’ll enjoy swapping your used books as much as we do.

Holiday books needed! Help us fill our Little Free Libraries with some holiday books this December. It takes a community to keep the small libraries flourishing, we need your help.

Each and every Little Free Library is special and ours are no exception. It’s a lot of time, love and devotion to create one (Thank you GPR).
