Finding the Best Pizza in Kelowna

Posted on July 26th, 2022 in The Shore Recommends

You know what they say about pizza – “Even when it’s not great, it’s still pretty good!” Though we won’t say no to any pizza, when it comes to this delicious Italian dish, we at the Shore think we have a pretty good idea of the best pizza in Kelowna.

Whether you’re a local looking for a fresh new spot for your next night out, or are only staying with us for the weekend and want a surefire dinner win, we’re here to help. Read on for some insights on the best dine-in and pizza delivery Kelowna has to offer.

Dine In

Catch up with friends over a few pies, or enjoy a solo venture sitting on a patio with a slice or two – the city has plenty of dine-in options for enjoying yourself for an afternoon or evening.

Antico Pizza Napoletana

For arguably the best pizza outside of Napoli, head to Antico Pizza for their authentic wood-fired pizza. Order the Primevare and you won’t be disappointed – a perfect balance of salty and sweet with plenty of prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, arugula, and shaved parm.

Have some extra room in the freezer? Grab some of their frozen pizzas to stash away for quick and easy dinners on those busy days. The Shore Kelowna’s suites come furnished with modern stainless-steel appliances, including plenty of freezer room and a large oven for your pizza-making convenience.

Famoso

Straight out of their high-heat forno bell oven, Kelowna’s Famoso location in Sopa Square also makes incredible traditional pizzas. Keep an eye out for their summer menu for some pleasantly surprising features, such as their Roasted Peach & Prosciutto Pizza with caramelized peaches and dates. We recommend sitting on the patio for some great people watching in Kelowna’s Lower Mission neighbourhood.

DunnEnzies

With plenty of room on their backyard-style patio, you can easily bring the whole family along to DunnEnzies’ Lower Mission location to enjoy an afternoon in the Okanagan sun. An extensive pizza menu, gluten-free options, and delicious cocktail list means everyone will be well taken care of.

Authentic with a Local Twist 

In town for the weekend and want to try something fresh and local? Two options immediately come to mind:

Red Bird Brewing

Named after one of the race boats of the famous Kelowna Regatta, Red Bird Brewing keeps their vibe on the casual side with a menu full of delicious pizza and beer. We suggest trying the Okanagan or classic Margarita pizza, paired with their light, refreshing, and oh-so-popular Regatta Radler. We also love that their pizzas are served with scissors for easy cutting and slice selection.

Upside Cider

Grab some friends and spend an evening at Upside Cider’s picnic tables nestled among their orchard’s trees. Try the popular apple & prosciutto pizza, which pairs well with their Sweetheart Cherry cider. Bonus: get an order of fried chicken to share too! You won’t regret it.

Easy Cheesy Delivery

Some days you just don’t have the time or energy to get out to a restaurant or make choices about making dinner. That’s okay, that’s what delivery’s for! Check out these popular straight-to-your-door choices for pizza delivery in Kelowna:

Dominos Pizza – Kelowna or West Kelowna

Fast, easy, and consistently delicious. With multiple locations, you’re never waiting too long to get your favourite order right to your door. Grab something from their Feast menu or go rogue with a custom pie. This is also a great choice for the gluten-free crowd!

Canadian 2 for 1 – Kelowna or West Kelowna

Looking for excessive amounts of cheese on your pizza? Canadian 2 for 1 is easily our go-to. Double down on grease with the Double Pepperoni and get ready for a great night in.

Panago – Kelowna or West Kelowna

Another easy choice for pizza delivery, especially for those looking for plant-based or gluten-free options. Our favourites include the sweet and spicy Beyond Summer BBQ or the flavourful Mediterranean, which will have you dreaming of crystal clear blue water and salty summer Greek breezes.
