Can you think of anything that tastes better than a slice of artisan pizza? (That’s a trick question.)
Eating the right pizza can feel like sharing a slice of destiny; it’s the meal you were always meant to have, and a part of you must wonder how you even got along beforehand. It changes you.
That’s what it feels like when you order a slice of pie at Aces Pizza Shop.
The pizzeria recently opened its doors in the heart of downtown Vancouver at 902 Granville Street. Since serving up premium (yet seriously cheap) pizzas by the slice and for takeout is Aces’ specialty, it will make you question how you ever settled for less.
With a menu packed full of classic pies like The Greek, Pesto Chicken, Big Cheese, and Granville Deluxe (edam, mozzarella, red and green peppers, mushrooms, red onions, roasted corn, tomato sauce), you can’t really go wrong.
On the premium pie menu, you’ll be torn between the likes of the succulent Philly Beef and Cheese (loaded with cheddar, smoked brisket, mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, and tomato sauce), and the Four Seasons (edam, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, ham, mushrooms, black olives, and tomato sauce).
Seriously though, if you haven’t already tried it yet, you need to go there. ASAP.
If you still can’t decide, then go all-out and build your own with a mix of regular and premium toppings. You’re going to want at least one or two dips to go with this, too. Obviously.
You can literally stop by Aces any time the craving for a luxe pizza hits because it’s open seven days a week, from 10 am to 4 am. Mid-work, on the way home from school, after salsa class, or even after you
stumble out of leave the club on the weekend – this pie always tastes good.
Since the pizza shop is practically a stone’s throw from the Vogue Theatre, Republic, and The Granville Room, you might just end up there a little more often than you think to enjoy a late-night munch. And if you prefer to have your pizza come to you, delivery starts on Thursday, January 18.
