It's been our mission to try all these places, and we have not been disappointed! As if you didn't need one more reason to move to Port Moody, we have three, okay, four more reasons, all pizza-related!

1. Spacca Napoli - Where Tradition Meets Innovation

Spacca Napoli is a name that resonates with pizza purists and culinary explorers alike. This authentic Neapolitan pizzeria brings a slice of Italy to the heart of Port Moody. From the moment you step inside, the warm ambiance and the enticing aroma of wood-fired pizza greet you. We have been here several times and recommend it wholeheartedly.

What sets Spacca Napoli apart is its unwavering commitment to tradition. They source the finest ingredients, from San Marzano tomatoes to 00 Caputo flour, to create a pizza that's as close to Naples as you can get in Port Moody. Their wood-fired oven, meticulously maintained at the perfect temperature, crisps the thin crust to perfection while keeping the centre delightfully chewy.

Don't miss their classic Margherita pizza, adorned with fresh basil, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. For a more adventurous palate, try the Diavola, a spicy masterpiece that's sure to tickle your taste buds.

2. Mama Said Pizza Co - A Slice of Home

When you think of comfort food, Mama Said Pizza Co should be your first stop. This family-run pizzeria exudes warmth and a homey atmosphere, making you feel like you're sitting at Mama's table. We had the pleasure of trying a few of these pizzas last week, and our family thought they were delicious!  

Their menu boasts a variety of pizzas, each crafted with love and a generous helping of locally sourced ingredients. Mama Said Pizza Co. offers both traditional and unique options, ensuring there's something for everyone. Whether you're a fan of classic pepperoni or craving a vegetarian delight, you'll find it here.

One standout pie is the Mama Mia, a meat lover's dream featuring pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. Pair it with one of their craft beers on tap, and you've got yourself a match made in heaven.

3. Emilio Finatti - Where Creativity Knows No Bounds

Emilio Finatti is the place to be if you're seeking pizza with a twist. This pizzeria is renowned for its inventive flavour combinations and commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional pizza.

With an extensive menu that caters to all palates, Emilio Finatti offers a fusion of global influences on the classic Italian pie. The result? Extraordinary pizzas that are a feast for the senses.

Their Pollo BBQ pizza, featuring succulent chicken, red onion, and a smoky barbecue sauce, is a testament to their creativity. And for those craving a taste of the Mediterranean, the Greek-inspired Zeus pizza is a must-try, complete with Kalamata olives, feta cheese, and fresh vegetables.

At the end of this pizza story, Port Moody may be known for its craft breweries, but its pizza scene is equally worth exploring.
