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 TC's Best Pizza Award!
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 Fort Street
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).

We’re giving away Chemainus Theatre tickets!  For every new toy or non-food item donated to our TTT box before November 30, 2018 you’ll receive a ballot to be entered in a draw to WIN Chemainus Theatre Little Women tickets plus dinner at the theatre!
