Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar brings together the best of old and new worlds with fresh new menu offerings

VANCOUVER, BC, August 26, 2019 — Today, Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar is reaffirming its commitment to delicious, authentic pizza. In addition to their famous traditional Neapolitan pizza, Famoso is now offering a thick crust option, inspired by pizza styles originating from both Sicily and New York.  Famoso’s New York Sicilian-Style Thick Crust pizza is bigger and thicker than their traditional Neapolitan style pizzas, using the same quality ‘00’ flour imported from Italy to create a thick crust that is both fluffy and crispy.

Featuring shredded Mozzarella and completely loaded with toppings, Famoso’s new thick crust pies are the best of both worlds.  Examples of these “share size” thick crust pizzas include: The Triple Double with 52 slices of pepperoni, Italian Job, loaded with 3 Italian deli-style meats, Tuscan Forno Chicken, with a full breast of Italian seasoned chicken, Famoso California, loaded with prawns (fun fact … there is actually a real city called Famoso California), Chorizo Grande Deluxe with two full chorizo sausages, and the Bacon Double Cheeseburger, starring Famoso’s family kept recipe of beef, pork and ricotta meatballs.

Also new to the pizza menu is a selection of plant based pizzas, served on Famoso’s classic Neapolitan crust, topped with rossa sauce, dairy free cheese from Daiya Foods and featuring Yves Veggie Cuisine plant based pepperoni.

Another exciting addition to Famoso’s menu is the introduction of Forno Style Wings, a new concept for the restaurant. These big and juicy wings are roasted to perfection in Famoso’s imported bell-shaped ovens, and are available in four savoury flavours: Traditional Hot Buffalo, Sweet Bourbon BBQ, Montreal-style Salt & Pepper and Italian-style Pesto & Parmesan.

Wings and Pizza, both done in a forno oven … a match made in heaven!

As if the thick crust and plant based pizzas and Forno style wings weren’t enough, Famoso has also expanded their Italian menu offerings to include authentic pastas like Rigatoni Ragu and Linguine Rose with Prawns; traditional Italian entrees like Chicken Piccata and Prawns a la Diavolo; and of course Italian inspired desserts … Orange Ricotta Cheesecake and Traditional Tiramisu.
