Ever since its first pie issued forth from the oven-bound infernos of New Zealand in 1996, the netherworld-themed pizzeria’s primarily kiwi doughsmiths have conjured hand-cut ingredients and special-recipe tomato base onto a whole-wheat Dantean circle and tormented them into gourmet pizzas. Among the standard menu's multitude of sins, only Envy makes eyes wish they were stomachs with its hearty conference of ham, salami, pineapple, bacon, onions, and mushrooms. The Mordor dots its smoky barbecue wasteland with pepperoni, bacon, chicken, onions, green peppers, and carelessly handled magic rings, and the Pandemonium smothers chicken and camembert beneath its piquant currents of cranberry sauce. Herds of smoked salmon and spring onion roam the cream cheese fields of the Serpent, best served with tosses of capers and avocado. Herbivores, however, can work off minor misdeeds—such as rhyming the word "together" with "forever"—with the Purgatory's fresh spinach, feta, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and mushrooms.
In 1999, Freshslice Pizza founder Ray Russell set out to combine the once-separate worlds of pizza-by-the-slice joints and speedy pie delivery. Each ready-made slice or delivery pie is created with a dough recipe that's seven years in the making, with a wholesome multigrain base with a crispy texture unheard of in run-of-the-mill pizzas made with boring white dough or pickled Frisbees. At each of the restaurant's 70 British Columbia and Ontario locations, customers can pop in for a few takeout slices, select a feast from the litany of suggested topping combos, or craft their own creation from three different sauces, more than 20 different toppings, and a variety of cheeses. In addition to savoury slices of pizza covered in combos such as pesto, spinach, ham, and mozzarella, customers can dine on morsels of baked lasagna, sweet cinnamon sticks, or other pizzeria fare.
Dominoes hardly needs any introduction- when it comes to franchise chain pizza, many consider them to be the best there is. They’ve really done an impressive job stepping up their game in recent years, as indicated by creations such as their Handmade Pan Pizza which uses fresh dough as opposed to the frozen goop that other chains thaw out each morning. The crunchy, yet chew taste of their signature classic crust is so iconic, most regulars could probably identify it blindfolded. To top it all off, Domino’s pricing is probably the best in town- you’d be hard pressed to find a mainstream pizza chain that offers better value for money.

Pizza Guys’ chefs bring the authentic flavours of Italian pizzas to Vancouver, preparing fresh dough inside a custom Italian oven. They top each disc with traditional tomato, basil-pesto, or creamy white garlic sauce, then hide it beneath a thick blanket of cheese and fresh meats and veggies. Their gourmet specialty pizzas allow guests to sample styles derived from New York, Greece, and Mexico, or create their own masterpiece with toppings such as jalapenos, feta cheese, and ground beef. After depositing pizzas in their imported oven—where dough bakes to a golden hue while practicing its Italian accent—chefs cook up a barrage of Italian and American favourites, including honey-garlic wings, lasagna, and meaty sub sandwiches.
