I love pizza

Postby Ken7 » Jan 18th, 2014, 6:31 pm

As I'm totally dissatisfied with the quality of Pizza in this City I've resorted to buying and adding to my frozen pies.

Tonight I tried a Wild Mike's all dressed frozen pizza, with some extra cheese added. I have to say, something in their pizza has just a nice bite, spice. Over all I was impressed, ironically for three pies less then $10.00. I actually will buy another as I enjoyed it more then McCains pizza.

What are you pizza lovers doing, I'm lost for good pizza and don't know where to turn.

We normally just buy frozen and add our own toppings but did try Hansen's veggie recently. Hubby preferred the regular frozen pizza we doctored up. I liked Hansen's, especially their whole wheat crust.

Make your own pizza crusts (simple, easy and cheap) or buy crusts. Start building your add-ons (whatever you like and some ingredients like dried herbs you use again and again) plus as much or as little cheese, fresh sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, etc - just go wild and bake on a pizza stone or ventilated pizza pan.

Still, occasionally, we like to order in...

We too had that same stuck feeling Ken7 but we found a great place with fabulous reviews on the internet.

We called Dunn Enzies and got two excellent pizzas.

We are never stuck again if we aren't making our own for a change.

I also recommend Dunn Enzies. Really! Stop there for a single slice at lunch to give it a try.

Don't know if Kelowna has one, but the Pizza Factory in Vernon is not half bad ... lots of cheese so that always makes American style pizza yummy. As for frozen pizza, we usually get Dr.Oetker Mama di Casa, a bit pricey but we don't buy frozen that often. The three pack from Costco (can't remember the name) is pretty good too.

If their menu is any indication of their product, it looks like what I'm after. Good pizza has several cheeses on top. By the coloration, of their cheese it looks like they have it!

Will have to give it a try thanks!

We did "build your own" with great results.

You're welcome.

homemade is so much better and if you're lazy go to Valarossa and pick up their pizza shells, some quality meat and they even have shredded pizza cheese you can buy..........

Mr. Mozzarella is amazing if you go to their glenmore location. Stay far away from the mission one though as it suffers from lack of supervision or something and the quality is not up to par with what I've come to expect from them.

I mostly only order from other places if they have really good deals. Not that they're bad...just not worth the amount they are charging.


I'm a Mr Mozzarella fan. If you're after high quality pizza like I am then this is the place to go imo. If you look at their menu and your mouth doesn't water there is something wrong with you.

Took years to find decent pizza in Kelowna when we came back. Everyone has their local favorite for any number of reasons. The Glenmore Mr. Mozzarella to me is a *bleep* shoot. Tried about a dozen times and absolutely no consistency. We now have our 2 main pizza suppliers here, Murrays Pizza (Westbank for years) at Glenmore and Summit now and The Pizza Factory at 33 and Hollywood. Have never had a "off" pie at either of these two. The Greek Taverna is good also but can be very expensive if you need several pizza's.

The BEST pizza in Kelowna over the years was Vern's Pizza on Harvey across from London Drugs...…….damn it was good. Probably been gone a good 10 years now. A new (lazy) 2nd owner back then :cuss: it up completely.

Always keep a few Dr. Oetker's (was McCains) in the freezer and add more toppings and cheese when we have them. Homemade from scratch maybe 4 times a year.
