I make my own from scratch. Have for decades.

It all started when I was a kid in Vancr. A neighbor across the street always made home made pizza, not sure of his ethnicity. Some Saturday evenings, there be a knock at the door and he'd hand my dad a cookie sheet (strange, it was the regular rectangle one) with a pizza. "Here, this is for you, enjoy" and off he'd go.

From that my dad used to make his own pizza. I remember well, he'd buy a Chief Boyardee Pizza mix. I guess it had a flour mix, a small can of parmesan cheese and some pizza sauce. My dad would add ground beef (broken up into small bits) some green olives and that was it. I don't even think it ever had cheddar or mozzarella cheese on it. (Ya, it sounds gross to me today, as well)

Anyway, I buy a gallon of pizza sauce and freeze it in 1/2 cup portions. I buy 500 g pepperoni chubs, cut them in fifths and freeze them.

About every other week, or more often I make enough dough to make two 12" pizzas. My wife likes Hawaiian, I'm more traditional. I make one pizza base (cut the dough in half) at a time, my wife puts whatever she likes on hers. I put it in the oven on a pizza stone for 8 - 10 minutes and I roll out my base and build my pizza. Her's comes out, mine goes in.

Each pizza is enough for our dinner and two lunches.

We've had friends over for a pizza making dinner, where everyone makes their own pizza, lots of fun.

For the spices, that I like, I created a recipe from all sorts of pizza spice recipes and make up a small bottle of the mixed spices.

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.


When I don't make my own, my favorite is Murray's Pizza. I live in Summerland, so that's the outlet I enjoy, they are all up the valley.

Pizza is fairly individual, one person will love a certain outlet, another hates the same one.

The most filling pizza I've ever had was a place that no longer exists, Vern's pizza.

If you ever make it to Golden or Williams Lake, Red Tomato Pies is a must.

You get your choice of six types of crust, 17 sauces, you can do half and half custom pizzas. Hell, there are half a dozen varieties of Hawaiian pizza listed if you’re into that (I most definitely am).

I believe they’re the #3 and #1 restaurants respectively in those towns.

Yes they do.....and to be honest the last time I had them it wasn’t as good....but still, better than anything I tried in town. I tried that dun enzies(spelling) and was less than impressed.

Not sure if anyone has said it but Houston Pizza a Saskatchewan franchise has recently opened in west Kelowna.

I've eaten my share of their pizza and am looking forward to a visit there soon!! Finally, by the photos their pizza is what I desire.

My Saskatchewan friends can’t speak highly enough of it, while my Manitoba friends say it sucks. This is Houston pizza in general, not specifically the West Kelowna store. But I’ve also heard the Sask and Manitoba locations were very different quality so that factors in. The owner here is from Sask so I’m hoping it’s as good as advertised!

I've read reviews from their site.

IF you like thin crust, you will likely say this pizza is sloppy or too wet. A thin crust typically has very little toppings. Therefore it will be a dryer pizza.

When you put the toppings to a pizza as Houston did in my old stomping grounds, it will be a wetter pie. It also used to be a good selection of meat and two cheese topping which gives the pizza the nice coloration on the cheese.

I have trouble looking at that photo I posted, I ate pizza every night shift I worked. I love pizza and that photo makes me want one right now!

……….was this picture taken with "photo radar" and at what speed was it clocked going down?

Vern's Pizza (was excellent) that was here in Kelowna 10 years ago was based out of Saskatoon and is still in business there.
