Review: Steveston Pizza Co

by gigi on February 11, 2008

For the past few months, I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Steveston Pizza Co based out of Steveston Village in Richmond. I read reviews about how the pizza was so good, people would order it and would finish the whole box on their way home while still in the car! For me, pizza is always more of a lunchtime event and unfortunately, Steveston Pizza Co doesn’t open until 4pm on Tuesdays to Sundays.

Jenkins and I happened to be in the area one day so we decided it was the perfect opportunity to pick some up for dinner. Jenkins’ brother and dad were back at his house so we ordered two large pizzas to take back to his place.

The Italian pizza was loaded with pepperoni, Genoa salami, capicolli, olives, roasted peppers, and caramelized onions. The crust on all the pizzas here are thin and not oily at all. Surprisingly, all the ingredients on the pizza did not make the crust too soggy, even though it took us about 20 minutes to get back to Jenkins’ place.

We also ordered a Hawaiian pizza, which is one of Jenkins’ favourites. Similar to the Italian pizza, the Hawaiian also came loaded with yummy toppings…this time ham and pineapple. Both pizzas came with chunks of basil that were sprinkled overtop and roasted in the oven. This gave the pizzas a unique taste that really complimented both the base ingredients.

Most large pizzas at Steveston Pizza Co cost about $20, which is about average for even places like Panago and Pizza Hut. What is different about this place is that the pizzas taste MUCH better. :) Another thing I liked about these pizzas was that there was not too much cheese nor tomato sauce. I find that some places tend to overload on these two items, which makes the pizza turn out to be too heavy. If it was the summer, I would have bought a pizza to eat on the pier, which was just a couple of blocks away. :)  Even though we put in our order just before six, there was a huge queue of pizzas waiting to be picked up already and a steady stream of people walking in to place more orders.
