There's no such thing as bad pizza. And there's no such thing as a bad time for pizza. And there's no such thing as "too much pizza". You get where we're going with this. So the question, that all true pizza connoisseurs are asking, is where can you find the best pizza?
We're going to deep in Vancouver to find the best kinds of pizza. Pizza that with one bite, gives you New York or Italy or Chicago vibes, right at home. The thin crust, the thick crust, and deep dish. And although it's an honourable mention, Costco Pizza will not be on this list. But read on, for the bucket list restaurants in Vancouver that you HAVE to visit.
