Pizza Secrets

Every good restaurant has a secret menu with tips, tricks and modifications to enhance the meal. When it comes to pizza in Victoria, we’re no exception. We call them game changers. Over the years, we’ve seen our wood-fired pizza classics revamped with a modification or two that have become weekly staples.

A few of our favourites we’re excited to share with you – Buon appetito!

Margherita pizza… add house mixed olives (warm blistery olives are delicious!) Filetti pizza… add a meat (prosciutto, house sausage, house smoked ham or house pepperoni) Diavola… add pesto drizzle + ricotta (no surprises here – DeCarolis/Dallas family favourite) Margherita… minus cheese, add mushrooms, onions, peppers, olives (vegan classic!) Any pizza… add an egg on top (all time favourite brunch choice)

If you have a new tip to share, we’d love to hear it.  Better yet, tag us #lovemyprimastrada with your next creation! Grazie mille!

Peach Spritz

These days it’s all about the spritz. And there’s nothing wrong with Aperol Spritz or the Campari Spritz (classics for a reason) but every now and again we crave something new, bubbly and fun. We’re digging local BC fruit right now and Maggie has developed a feature patio sipper we know you’ll love. Find it at Prima Strada Fort Street or make it at home!

Base + bubbles + more bubbles + garnish = crowd pleaser

Pinot Grigio Peach Spritz 2 oz Pinot Grigio (or any white wine) 1.5 oz peach syrup * 1/2 oz lemon 3 fresh mint leaves Soda Shaken on ice, strained over fresh ice, top with soda, garnish with lemon wheel or a fresh peach slice! *Make your own peach syrup! Local peaches are in! Peach Syrup 700 ml water 500 ml sugar 300g fresh, pitted & quartered peaches (or frozen) Bring to a boil on high heat, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20 minutes. Fine strain & let cool. Refrigerate for 1 week.

See you for pizza in Victoria or Cowichan! Cin cin to you and yours at the next family gathering!

Wine night at Prima Strada
Pizza and Wine Night with Averill Creek

Free wine sample!

Join Prima Strada Cook Street on July 24 and Prima Strada Fort Street on July 25 for pizza and a free sample of Averill Creek‘s newest wine, JOUE. Averill Creek wine maker Brent will be onsite between 5pm – 7pm to tell us about the vino but more importantly show off and let us taste his newest creation. PPS’ Executive Chef Franz has put together a fantastico pizza and wine pairing which we know you’ll love.

Pizza and wine go together like tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Pizza would not be the same without these simple ingredients. Fact. That’s how we feel about our friends at Averill Creek and their newest wine.

Our friendship with local Cowichan winery, Averill Creek Vineyard is something special. So special that we’re getting an exclusive sneak peek at their newest wines…and we’re sampling with you!

Best pizza award
Best Pizza, YAM Magazine

Wow! We’re thrilled, honoured and needing another minute to gush. Mille grazie Victoria for voting Pizzeria Prima Strada as BEST PIZZA at the 2019 YAM Magazine Restaurant Awards.

We’re passionate about what we do, have excellent people and really love making pizza.

Our inspiration stems from Naples, Italy where fire-roasted pizzas are born.  For a century and a half, the pizza makers of Naples (or “pizzaioli” as they are known in their home town) have been producing unique mouth-watering pizzas using the freshest ingredients available.

Like any of the best restaurants you’ll find worldwide, Pizzeria Prima Strada is a labor of love. We’ve created neighbourhood pizzerias, a place you can walk to with your friends and family, have a local craft beer or wine and where you can see your food being made – enjoy our version of a taste of Italy.

Buon appetito!
