After an earlier bagel at the Granville Island Public Market, I was still hungry. After waiting a little bit while others went to find their own food choices and return, I was able to go in search of another delicious delight.
I settled on Pizza Pzzaz (1689 Johnston Street, Vancouver) after seeing them earlier. With at least six pizzas to choose from in their display case all seeming freshly made, it's hard to choose which one to start with. After a little while of narrowing down my choices I approached the cash to place my order. Since the pizza place was surprisingly not that busy despite it being a busy Saturday, I was able to order right away.
The Order: 1 Meat lovers slice.
Surprisingly the slice came to me instantly without first making a detour to the oven to be heated. Perhaps it was freshly made and recently put out? Only way twas to return to my seat and take a bite.
After sitting down I took a bite.... why is the slice lukewarm? Yup, they failed to either keep the slice warm under heat lamps or reheat the slice in the oven to make it at least an acceptable temperature like most pizza parlors would.
Taste wise, the toppings tasted fresh and the cheese wasn't overdone in quantity or skimped on. No complaints there but obviously the lack of temperature held toppings and pizza back from reaching their full taste potential.
Overall, Pizza Pzzaz is a little pricy at $4.25 at per slice served cold. But the potential if those slices are served at the right temperature as gourmet New York style pizza slices is promising. Service is prompt and variety of menu options is sufficient. But will someone please turn on the heat?
