2017 review

What a year it’s been! We have so much to celebrate with YOU, our fans, who made our 2017 a successful one. We celebrated a number of accomplishments: a new pizzeria in the Cowichan Valley (PPS Cobble Hill opened in March), being voted BEST PIZZA in Victoria by the Black Press News Group and the Victoria Times Colonist and our new partnership with Averill Creek launching our first ‘Vino della Casa’ (house wine) vintage!

With lots of exciting projects on the horizon, we know 2018 won’t disappoint. Thanks for your support PPS fans, we couldn’t do it without you. We look forward to another prosperous year and hope you’ll join us for a great meal with your friends and family in the New Year.  Salute!

Riot Brewing Cask Night at PPS Cobble Hill

Riot Brewing Cask Night!

Love wood fired pizza and local beer?  If you’re vigorously nodding, we’ve got just the thing.  It’s true, there’s no better combination. Pizza and beer really are the best of friends and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Chemainus locals, Riot Brewing, for our first cask night at PPS Cobble Hill.

Franz Dessombes, Executive Chef at Pizzeria Prima Strada helped out at the brewery. “We were fortunate to be a part of the hands-on process when it came time to tweak the ‘Life Partners Pale Ale’ cask. We know you’ll like the sour cherry and thyme twist – plus it pairs really nicely with pizza so everybody wins!”

“Riot is a great partner for us,” Dessombes continues. “They brew classic and true-to-style beer and are a very fun team to work with. The event will be a excellent way to introduce both businesses into the authentic and thriving food and beverage community in the Cowichan Valley.

“Pizza and beer is a classic combination, so when The Pizza Man called, we answered. Cask beer…

PPS' new house wine
PPS & Averill Creek collaborate on house wine!

PPS and Averill Creek have collaborated to create Prima Strada’s house wine! In Italy, house wine is always local. Sometimes even as close as across the road. And it’s always good. Local wine, local food, friends and family – it’s a delicious combination!

The friendship with Averill Creek started in 2010 when the PPS team first visited the winery. Averill Creek is the largest estate winery on Vancouver Island; the only winery to be located on the slope of a mountain, Mount Prevost. Prima Strada’s Vino della Casa, Prima Prevost and Prima Grigio, are 100% estate grown and hand crafted in the Cowichan Valley.

PPS’ Andrew Johnson and Averill Creek’s Andy Johnson worked out the details: tasting and blending and finally bottling!

Recommended pairings: Everything! But if we have to choose, here’s a few favorites. Drink Prima Grigio with a Pizza Margherita & Funghi supremo. Sip Prima Prevost with Polpette della Casa & Pizza Diavola!

What your wine choice says about you:

Prima Prevost = Sophistication, you command attention & love a good dark chocolate Prima Grigio = Free spirited, life of the party, dancing on tables, pleasure to be around

Our new Vino della Casa is a result of two island companies working together…

PPS Bridge is moving! Cobble Hill here we come!
PPS Bridge is moving to the Cowichan Valley!

We’re moving to the Cowichan Valley and we’re really excited! PPS Cobble Hill will open this Spring!

It will be business as usual at PPS Bridge until Saturday, February 4. We hope you’ll join us for a last celebration or two.

PPS Bridge opened February 15, 2010. We hosted the successful Long Table Dining Series, Vino e Spuntino and Parla Italiano. Most importantly, we were honored to celebrate many weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement and staff parties with family and friends.

To our many Bridge Street guests, especially our loyal lunch crowd, grazie mille! It’s been a pleasure to serve you. We’ve enjoyed being part of the neighborhood and seen great changes with the addition of breweries, coffee roasteries and more. We’ll continue to be a part of the area with PPS Production and our Support Office tucked into a smaller space at 2960 Bridge Street.

We’re excited to bring Prima Strada up island! We look forward to embracing another neighbourhood and expanding outside of Victoria. While a new location, rest assured you’ll see both new and familiar faces as part of the PPS team in Cobble Hill. Construction is underway at our new location in…
