Steveston Pizza is a pizzeria serving North American pizza with a European flair.
Fresh ingredients, skillfully and timely prepared! When they tell you it'll take 14 minutes, they really do hand it over in 14 minutes!
Love the flatbread style pizzas here. It comes into close competition with my other fave Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. They're both great in their own ways while this place is a bit cheaper unless you go to the other one for their lunch deals. But this is a good takeout place with no real seating though you can purchase your pizza or the only 2 alternative choices of lasagna on their menu & eat it right there sitting on one of the 2 stools looking out the window or while watching them cook up some more pizzas in the tiny room.
I'm glad I stopped by for a 2nd dinner after having a disappointing 1st one (of a well reviewed restaurant) as I was excited to try out this place after so many recent consecutive reviews about its greatness--I did arrive skeptical but left a fan! I have been back for another helping since then & it was even better than the 1st time since I added some essential toppings off of their variety of offerings.
Ordered take out pizza on several occasions and have tried the Margarita one, Japanese and Caveman varieties.
Food: fresh ingredients and quality cheese used. My favourite, Margarita One, has fresh basil and gooey mozzarella opposed to the gummy stuff sometimes found in cheaper pizzas. The Japanese is an acquired taste, it doesn't have your typical tomato sauce base and the cheese -inoki mushroom combo takes some getting used to. My husband being the meat lover, adores the Caveman - tons of minced up meat for that hearty soul.
Value: More expensive than the 2-for-1 places but holds up relatively well compared to sit-in restaurants. Large pizzas range from $16 (for plain) to $22 for the specialty pizzas.
Service: generally friendly and they make your pizzas within 20 minutes but they're a small operation so when they get flooded with orders, it's hard to predict the timing.
Ambiance: counter service, one table and a few chairs. A big plus is that you can see the staff making your pizza so there's nothing "hidden" about the pizza making process.
I've read the reviews and I have to concur... This is some of the best pizza I've ever had... I ordered the Italian and I was impressed with the quality and quantity of ingredients... The fresh basil added a wonderful flavour and the quality of the pepperoni and cappicola was evident. I even threw the chef a curve-ball and asked him for onion on only one-half of the pizza (the bride is alergic). We did takeout (not much space to eat inside) and the chef showed me which half had the onions. This is the first time I've give a "5" Food rating, but this guy deserves it...
The variety of pizza goes beyond the norm and they offer some of the most unique and tasty combinations around. Everytime I go I try to get a different type and I am usually pleasantly surprised by how well the strange combinations work with the unique ingredients. They are not open for lunch though but are very busy come dinner time.
I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting pizza that is not the generic peperoni or haiwaiian.
Not counting the back kitchen, this place is probably not even the size of your bathroom. It's meant entirely for takeout. But it makes an amazing pizza.
We were in Steveston the other day and grabbed a Caveman (= meatlovers) pizza from Steveston Pizza Co. Just the smell was enough to make us salivate. The pizza itself had, if this is at all possible, too much meat. The crust was perfect. Thin but not too crunchy. Best pizza I've had in the lower mainland. I will most definitely be back many MANY times.
the pizzas here are awesome. period.
if you have not tried them, its a must!.. they stack it with so many toppings according to what you order and everything is fresh so the end result is something that lights up the taste buds.
the last pizza i had here was the caveman and again, they dont cheap out on the meat or cheese so the pizza was just loaded with toppings, love it!!!!!!
it is pricer compared to a dominos or a pizza hut which does hurt a little but on the other hand, those other pizza places are so stingy with their toppings which ends up balancing it
theres nothing really to the ambiance of this place, the inside looks old and beat up but who cares, its not made for dine-in purposes anyway
if you want a tasty pizza, come to this place.. just be prepared to spend a few more bucks than you normally would, doubt you will regret it though
Food: had the Mexican and 5th Element, found both a bit bland.
Service: very accurate with the ETA of your pizza.
Value: kind of expensive compared to other pizza places but they do use "better" toppings.
Ambiance: store is very tiny, place looks a bit greasy. But it's intended for take-out so it's all good.
I vaguely remember my first GF who lived on #3 Road and Francis but I do remember when the best pizza in the Westend was at “Jon’s Party Pizza” on Davie Street. Those two events coincided many years ago. At last, Don Quixote can stop charging the windmills! The quest for the perfect pizza has been lanced. And it’s at the very tip of Steveston Village.
The owner is a very admirable, clever, entrepreneur and well loved by his customers. While I was enjoying my pizza on the small two stool bar table, several persons came in to order their “usual” and another brought him a box of Macadamia nut chocolates from Hawaii.
I chatted with the owner throughout the meal and joked that this is the furthest I driven for a pizza. Upon paying my bill he declared that the total was $15.90 taxes included. I question his addition because our medium pizza was a half+half Pacific/Caveman with extra double cheese topping, extra prawns and extra capocolli? On top of that we also had the Bocconcini salad (with the best Pomegranate Balsamic Dressing: rivaling any 5 star restaurant’s) and all washed down with 2 cans of diet Pepsi!
To which he replied “You don’t need extra toppings on my pizza’s.” and seen as how far we’ve traveled for our first visit, “The Pepsi and salad was on the house”.
I placed the remainder of a twenty into the paper cup marked “tip”. And Mr. “N” raised the stake of our return by giving my friend a gift of his best olive oil: which he uses in his pizza dough. What a businessman!
How’s it possible to give a take-out pizza joint 4½ stars? I think I’m voting with my stomach and taste buds! This is the best Pizza since slice bread.
Steveston Pizza is one of those rare finds that you recommend to everyone you know, and they love it too.
The only criticism I have is that the owner (a really friendly guy!) plays with the recipes from time to time, so you go in hoping you'll get one thing and getting it slightly altered. No biggie, though.
The ambience rating I have given is 3 - only because they wouldn't allow me to submit it n/a or unknown. This is a take-out place, only.
DO try it.
Stopped by this Saturday after one of this guys famous pizzas. His press is so fabulous and they live up to every bit of it.
It' s just a place you go get to go and enjoy in the park or home.
We ordered a medium Vegitarian pizza. (We're not vegitarians)We made no choice execpt vegitarian category this time, just told the chef tp make one up so we would want to come back for another one some day soon. We went over to Garry Point and enjoyed the sunshine weekend and enjoyed our pizza.Well he succeeded quite easily with flavors that are fresh and quality is high end. Definitly the Best Pizza I have ever had in a long while. They have the true Italian flare aand proper crusts.
This is where you can get pizza that tastes great but you don't have to feel guilty about it afterwards.
The pizza crusts are thin, but you still get the satisfaction of eating the "pizza dough." The toppings are generous and of a high quality.
We have tried almost all of pizzas and would recommend them all, but like a previous reviewer said, the owner does tend to change the configurations. The owner has also been playing around with the pricing, which is a bit annoying, but the latest menu we got seemed to be reasonable enough (the prices kept increasing for a while).
Do give this pizza a try! Call ahead because they can get busy, and sometimes they deliver, sometimes not!
I went to Steveston's Pizza on a Friday night, from far away all around was dark but the tiny pizzeria glowed with an orange warmth that stood out like a fireplace in the middle of a cold wet night.
The moment I walked in I knew I was in for a good food journey, the aroma was rich with baked bread, cheese, and the amazing mixture of fresh ingredients, sauce and herbs.
The service was quick and friendly, store front very clean and tidy.
The pizza, I dont even know how to begin describing the taste of it. I think if there were pizzas in heaven, that's how it would taste like. The ingredients harmonized and complimented each other in a way that your taste buds would explode with surprise, of how wonderful everything all came together and joined each other hand in hand on this happy little slice in your hand. It tasted so fresh and delicious that I felt like the world was a better place after devouring it. I took out the pizzas and enjoyed it with a bottle of red wine at home and it was simply the best meal I had in a long long time.
The price is a bit high, but I think it's worth every penny of it. Quality, quality, quality. For those who are curious, go give it a try, I promise you will find that glowing happiness that I did too.
I have been eating Steveston pizza qite regulraly for the last year or so and I couldn't agree more with the opinons of everyone elso on the page. Simply the best pizza in town. Fresh ingredients combined with originality come together to make one fine pizza. If there was such thing as fine dining pizza take out, this would be it. I don't know the owners name but he is always freindly and makes a point of personally thanking you for your business. You won't be dissapointed.
The pizza is great. but I find the servings small. The topping combinations are unusual and creative. Many of them that I like alot. For example: The Caramelized duck confit, bocconcini, enoki mushroom, chive and tomato relish pizza.
Regardless, the pizza is relatively expensive so not sure its worth the value. For me its a treat to have once in a while.
Based on the reviews I decided to give this place as try as everybody has been raving that the Steveston Pizza co has the best pizza in town. First of all it is a long drive and is it worth it? I would say if you crave excellent pizza then yes. I tried the Caveman and Italian. The caveman was my favourite as every bite was like biting into a big chunk of meat. The crust is thin but looks like normal crust because of the toppings. I will certainly be back.
We ordered a large Italian and it had LOTS of ingredients. Very generous. And the crust is quite nice (even the next morning). However despite the various toppings, it tasted a bit bland (think a touch more sauce may have helped) and the combination of red bell peppers (not carmelized) and black olives created an odd flavour combination. The service is friendly and the pizza was ready in 15 minutes as promised.
Third time, the first I had the salmon, a little disappoited with the quantity of salmon on the pizza, it was a very little ball in the middle, second time I had the caveman - really enjoyed that - very good, and last week we tried a the red and black, it was OK, both overcooked with cheese almost black, maybe that's why they call it black. I'm finding the ratings a little to high here, incredible and outstanding no, not quite there yet, but they very good.
I had been reading such good things about this pizza place that I just had to try it. I have driven to this place from Marpole (20 minutes each way will my lead foot) on three occasions in the last month or so. This is definitely something out of the ordinary from the average pizza joint. The Japanese and the West Coast are fabulous. I have also tried the Italian and the Caveman, which are both a little on the salty side but given that those pizzas are mostly meat toppings, it is expected -- but they are both good still. Crust is light and good amount of toppings. I am sure that the pizzas would taste even better if eaten shortly after it comes out of the oven.
Wow. Nothing else you can really say except wow. The best pizza. I have not had a bad one. From the most basic to the most complex. Organic veggies, hand made crust. I would go almost anywhere just to pick it up. I am very happy I live somewhat close. Will be eating here for a very long time. To bad you can't sit down there but hey my couch is great to. Thanks guys keep up the great work.
This is the best pizza in Richmond...if not the Lower Mainland. If you are someone who enjoys thick greasy pizza with layers of toppings - then do you yourself a favor and don't go. This is not the place for you. If you enjoy really great tasting food then do try it.
The guy (owner) making the pizza's isn't some schlep throwing toppings on his pizza. He's given his menu a lot of thought and really has come up with some great combinations. He has even recently revamped the menu with some really crazy gourmet pizza's, which I have yet to try , but will definitely try next time I go.
