An Open Letter to Our Community

 

Beginning February 20, 2020, Pizzeria Prima Strada will include a 2% fee on all guest checks to help mitigate the cost of the Employer Health Tax (EHT).

To make up for the lost revenue from the elimination of MSP premiums, the province introduced an Employer Health Tax for businesses with annual payrolls above $500,000. The EHT was implemented with little information provided to and even less consultation with the small businesses it so deeply affects.

Pizzeria Prima Strada is family owned and operated, employing more than 80 staff between our three pizzerias and production kitchen. Our annual payroll places Prima Strada in the highest EHT bracket of 1.95%.

We have come to this decision after much consideration. Since the EHT was announced, we have observed how businesses will address this new tax. We have also communicated with government and industry groups to find the best solution to help sustain our business.

Our options included: price increases, staff reduction and smaller portions. However, these options are not transparent and in opposition to our company values. The 2 % fee will go directly to offset the cost of the Employer Health Tax.

After more than 11 years in operation, we remain…

We’re giving the Gift of PARM!

Giving the gift of PARM? Yes, Prima Strada is giving PARMESAN RINDS as a gift! Parmesan rinds contain magical properties (and magic is certainly part of the holiday season).

Stop by your favourite Pizzeria Prima Strada and pick up your small present – a pack of parm rinds. Available December 18 – 23 11:30 a.m. until closing, while supplies last!

The rind of a parmesan wheel is all cheese, like the crust on a loaf of bread. It is full of calcium and contains trace amounts of lactose. It adds flavour to a broth, soups and sauces.

A friend swears the ultimate snack is to soften a piece of rind in the microwave then drizzle with your favourite syrupy balsamic vinegar. I prefer to use in soups and in our favourite – pasta ceci. Before serving, I remove the rind, chop into small bits and add back into the pot. You’ll find chewy delicious bites are the best part of the dish.

Here’s a favourite recipe for Black Eyed Pea Stew , it needs a parm rind (of course)! I’ve also included a few notes (I’ve made it many times):

*Can use chicken broth in place of the water. *Can use Read More +

Pizza is BETTER in a Stocking

Give the Gift of Pizza. (It’s the easiest decision you’ll make. Ever.)

Pizza in a stocking? What?! We can’t think of anything better than finding a Prima Strada Gift Card in our Christmas Stocking. Are you listening Santa?

Prima Strada’s new eGift cards allow you to send a gift instantly! Purchase online or at any of our three locations.  Stocking stuffer, Secret Santa, holiday gatherings or an end of year ‘Thank You’ – it’s the perfect gift.  Every friend group should have at least one Pizza Angel.

Prima Strada Pronto!
It’s lunch time! Try Prima Strada Pronto!

We know your goal is to bring lunch from home every day.  It’s ours too!

We’ve read articles, bought books, double batched recipes and even picked out the perfect containers. (Who doesn’t want to eat their lunch from a really cool bowl or bento box?) Then reality sets in and not only have we run out of ideas but the usual items just aren’t cutting it and neither are the leftovers.

We realize this sounds crazy coming from us. You’re thinking, “You’re Prima Strada! You make pizza and gelato and so many other good things. You think about food all day long and some of you are actually schooled cooks!”  We know, we know.

The Support Team works upstairs from Prima Strada Production. No pizza here. Most mornings we determine our lunch options – generally we (Prima Strada Support Team) eat lunch at our desks. This makes pooling our resources fairly easy. Between us all we usually have veggies, fresh bread, cheese and assorted meats. It’s not pizza but it’s the next best.  You see where we’re going with this?

Prima Strada Pronto!  It’s fast, healthy and won’t cost much.

We’re starting with 4 simple items, prepared in 10 minutes or less…
