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!

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).

PPS Wins EcoStar Award

As a restaurant, a commitment to sustainability should be the rule, not the exception. At Prima Strada, it’s one of our core values be respectful to our customers, team, products, community and especially our environment. We also make really really good wood-fired pizza.

We are honoured to receive the “Greenest Restaurant” award at the 2018 EcoStar Awards, presented by Synergy Enterprises

The EcoStar Awards acknowledge outstanding environmental consideration, leadership and achievements by individuals, organizations and businesses in and around the Victoria area. 

As we initially read through the list of local finalists, we couldn’t help but remark that we were in great company. We’re flattered to have made the list and thrilled to be considered a leader in the food and beverage industry. 

There’s always more to be done.  With a mandate to relentlessly strive for improvement, we will continue to improve as a community partner and business.  Grazie mille!

PPS also won the 2018 Golden Garbage Award (we picked up the most trash in YYJ’s Earth Day competition!) and have previously won the Greenest Restaurant award in 2015 (EcoStar).
