Pazzarella Pizza is a Neopolitan style pizza food truck. During the week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the truck is located at the Coal Harbour Community Centre, and on weekends they visit various local farmers markets and festivals. I had never actually heard of the truck until I saw it on my Street Food Vancouver app so I walked over to Coal Harbour for lunch to give it a try.
The menu is pretty simple and they just have four types of pizzas that go for $7 or $8. They have a real wood fire oven on the truck and they use Caputo flour imported from Naples and San Marzano tomatoes.
I ordered a margherita ($7) for my lunch. I was really impressed to see that they have a dairy free vegan cheese that you can substitute for no additional cost (I’m lactose intolerant) so I tried that. It took them a few minutes to put the pizza in the oven and it came out piping hot.
The crust had the beautiful slight char and smokey flavour that comes from the wood fire oven. It was delicate and really light, but it didn’t get soggy. The tomato sauce had a slight sweetness and the basil was fresh and aromatic. Although the vegan cheese obviously can’t compare to fresh mozzarella, it still tasted good on the pizza and I would get it again.
I also tried the prosciutto ($8) pizza that comes topped with fresh arugula and sliced of prosciutto after being baked in the oven. This pizza was great and I loved the salty rich flavour the prosciutto added. I enjoyed both pizzas equally.
Pazzarella serves up some great pizzas and it is one of my new favourite food carts. The pizzas are made fresh to order and they are all priced affordably under $10. You can also enjoy some great views of Coal Harbour while you eat your lunch.
Yes, for delicious wood fire pizzas to go.
