On her way back from Abbotsford, my roommate brought home a Salsiccia pie from Ah Beetz. Wow! Best pizza in the GVRD (that’s Greater Vancouver Regional District to non-Vancourites) by far. Salsiccia had Italian sausage (made in house), red onions, aged mozzarella, bocconcini, parmigiano reggiano and fresh basil. Paige added artichokes on top of that. The result was an incredibly delicious pie, with an impressive crust that withstood succumbing to the moisture of the toppings during the drive back home. The crust remained dry and crisp on the outside, chewy and elastic on the inside.
Oh and the sausage! The sausage was delicious! Fresh, flavoursome, with nice pops of fennel seed throughout.
I have to mention that the pie was still the best I’ve ever had in this city even though we didn’t eat it straight out of the 700 degree oven. It was taken on a 2 hour drive home and reheated in our little subpar “oven” and still tasted absolutely delicious!
If you have a car (I don’t), I would thoroughly suggest doing a day trip out to this place. Eat a pie there, and bring three home.
