Look, I simply can’t hide my excitement about La Pizza Week kicking off all across Canada this week. Pizza is my favourite food, after all. La Pizza Week started on May 1, but fear not! It’s going on until the end of the day on May 7, so you still have plenty of time to snag a slice from any of the participating restaurants in the Metro Vancouver area.
Should you choose to take advantage of this grand excuse to order pizza, you have forty-nine featured pizzas to pick from in Metro Vancouver, but there are participating restaurants all over the province. There’s a Google Maps link and a Skip the Dishes widget that come up when you click the pizza you desire, so you can see where the restaurant is and promptly order yourself some slices.
Then, after you acquire and eat your pizza of choice (or pizzas of choice, I’m not here to judge), there is a function on the website to rate your pizza as being bad, meh, or amazing.
At the time of writing, the Ten Rich Toppings pizza from Andreas Restaurant in North Vancouver has a spot in the top five.

Another amazing thing about La Pizza Week is that an option was presented to each restaurant to increase the price of their featured pizza by just $1, and donate those spare dollars to Anorexia & Bulimia Québec, an organization that provides support for those who are struggling with eating disorders.
Not to mention, your local pizza places will undoubtedly appreciate the extra business these days.
The people behind La Pizza Week have also been responsible for Le Burger Week last September, and La Poutine Week this past February. People Mover Tech is based in Montreal, and specializes in interactive food festivals like these.
