Hometown Pizza prepares fresh, hot & delicious pizza. They have been serving high quality pizza since 1980.
This was my family's go to pizza takeout place for years until I found another place that superceded their pizza crust.
We've mostly relied on delivery with the odd pickup somewhere. Pizzas were always consistent, with the same thick crust and same amount of toppings with every order. The crust is quite the gem, pretty thick compared to every other pizza place I've been to around town. Best eaten fresh so it's still chewy. They have the usual complimentary items as well with their sub sandwiches, pastas, and bbq chicken.
This is one of the few independent pizza joints that has seating available for dine in patrons, although it's been long since I came in so they might've changed that. I found it out of character to see planted foliage inside. Otherwise it resembles the small pizza joint one would picture.
Delivery drivers have always been friendly as are the people manning the fort when doing pickup orders.
Prices have slowly crept up over the years and last I saw them they were a $2-3 dollars more expensive than similar joints.
I wouldn't say that this place would distinguish itself apart from many other small pizzerias, but you can expect something that would fit the bill nicely.
I had pizza from this restaurant in January. It was my birthday so I wanted to have a pizza party at work. I ordered 3 or 4 large pizzas, I can't remember everything I ordered but they were all good. I know I ordered one of "The Flame" which was quite spicy as advertised.
The pizza was really fantastic. Thick chewy crust with nice sauce and tons of cheese and fresh toppings. Not greasy at all. If you like thin crust, wimpy pizza this is not the place for you. It is definitely substantial. Almost a year later and I am still thinking about this pizza, that should tell you something.
I can't comment on the ambiance or the in-house service as I never dined in. I am not even sure if they have a dining room. I have driven by there a few times and it looks pretty small. But the delivery guy was on time so no problems there.
They don't have a website but I found an online menu, probably it is outdated but you can get an idea of what they have. Check it out!
You'd never know it to look at it, but this is the best pizza in Vancouver. I used to live in the neighborhood, and still on occasion drive there (from North Vancouver) because the pizza's so good. The seating consists of two large plastic patio tables with patio chairs, but who cares? The pizza's unbelievable, and the staff are friendly.
When you get it delivered it comes quick and hot. A real gem that deserves to be better known.
