Nestled in the heart of downtown Kelowna is Antico Pizza Napoletana, an award-winning pizzeria that has been wowing both locals and visitors since it first opened its doors in 2016. This eatery has garnered numerous accolades over the years, including being named one of Canada’s top three “pizzerias to try before you die” and ranking 14th among North America’s finest pizza restaurants.
Antico boasts a sleek, minimalist interior, and its picturesque patio is the perfect spot to savour a traditional Neapolitan pizza. This pizzeria prides itself on providing speedy service without sacrificing taste or quality. And when it comes to authenticity, Antico is the real deal – their wood-fired oven was custom-built in Naples to ensure that every pizza is 100% authentic.

2. DunnEnzies Pizza Co.
Perhaps the most well-known pizza company in Kelowna is none other than DunnEnzies. This family-owned pizza joint got its start in downtown Kelowna in 2010, and since then, has expanded to three locations to become one of the city’s most beloved pizzerias.
At DunnEnzies, their handmade dough is the foundation of their culinary creations – pair this with an impressive variety of innovative toppings and you’re on a one-way journey to flavourtown. Have you ever tried honey on your crust? Neither had we until we had it here – now, we can’t imagine our pizza without it! If you find yourself downtown enjoying the nightlife, this is the best post-bar food around.
3. Hansen’s Classic Pizza
Known primarily for their infamous ‘dough ball’ that sits in the center of every pizza, Hansen’s is a local favourite. What we think is best enjoyed on the beach just blocks away from here, the pizza is hearty, delicious, and available in a wide variety of topping combinations.
When you enter, you’ll be greeted by the distinct smell of freshly made pizza. Local, natural ingredients create unique pizza combinations like the Cheese-Aholic, Perogi Supreme and Smoked Salmon. The dining area is relatively small, so we encourage you to take our advice and hit a nearby beach! If you’re in the Lower Mission and looking for a top-notch pie, Hansen’s is undoubtedly the place to go.
4. Red Bird Brewing
Red Bird is a unique and vibrant brewery that offers much more than just tasty beer. The laid-back atmosphere both inside and out is a perfect spot to enjoy a meal with friends, especially when you pair your pint with a mouthwatering pizza. What sets Red Bird apart is the combination of delicious food, lively ambiance, and frequent live music.
With pizza combinations like The Okanagan and Marvelous Mushroom to the Peach & Prosciutto, you know you’re in good hands. Each pie is crafted with locally sourced ingredients, fresh flavours, and is accompanied best by a hoppy beverage! Come kick back, listen to some local live music, and enjoy one of the best pizzas in Kelowna.

Last but not least is Jackknife Brewing. Come “slay a slice and murder a beer” in this one-of-a-kind welcoming atmosphere. Inspired by a creative cauldron of individuals, Jackknife welcomes people from all walks of life to come enjoy their weird beer and delicious pizza.
