Italian Classic and Garlic Pesto Pizza from La Pache Pizza

Continuing our Italian adventure (see post about La Grotta del Formaggio) in the heart of Commercial Drive, Vancouver - we grabbed a couple pizza slices from La Pache Pizza. With its unassuming exterior, you might not guess the flavour explosion that awaits inside.

La Pache offers Neopolitan pizza, a beloved Italian classic characterized by its thin, soft, and slightly chewy crust.

Garlic Pesto Slice

Our culinary adventure began with the Garlic Pesto slice. One bite and we were transported to the sunny streets of Naples. The pesto sauce provided a burst of freshness, and the roasted garlic added a delightful punch. The creamy mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and dollops of ricotta cheese created a harmonious symphony of flavours. The crust, the star of any Neapolitan pizza, was a perfect blend of crunchy on the bottom and soft on top, offering a delightful contrast to the toppings.

Italian Classic Slice

Our second slice was the Italian Classic, a flavour-packed masterpiece. The spiciness of the meats was beautifully balanced by the cheese, and the tomato sauce provided a zesty backdrop. The crust, once again, stole the show with its signature Neapolitan texture, crispy yet tender.

La Pache Pizza truly captures the essence of Neapolitan pizza. The secret lies not only in their choice of ingredients but also in their meticulous preparation and wood-fired oven cooking. This results in a pizza that's light and flavorful. If you're seeking an authentic Neapolitan experience in Vancouver, La Pache Pizza should be at the top of your list. Buon appetito!
