There’s a new pizza concept in Vancouver, one that brings ‘pizza with purpose’ to our community and proudly gives a slice of the pie back by donating partial proceeds of each pizza sold to worthy causes and charities in the community like Movember, The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Unison Benevolent Fund and more.
Opening as a take-out pizza concept in Vancouver on Thursday November 19, Anthem Pizza serves up a menu of no-fuss 14” pies and sides with names inspired by rock icons like:
- Hunky Dory (Bowie) —prosciutto, banana peppers, mozzarella and pineapple jam
- Sabotage (The Beastie Boys) — chorizo sausage, pepperoni, roasted chicken, prosciutto, mozzarella
- Blah Blah Blah (Iggy Pop) — Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, fior di latte, Grana Padano, Provolone, EVOO
Pizzas are served in current-events-inspired boxes with a DIY punk-rock aesthetic that features the limited-edition works of David Bircham and other local artists.
“Every pie we’re putting out is made with a very important ingredient: purpose. The inspiration behind the creation of Anthem was not only to respond proactively to the COVID-19 pandemic by pivoting to a takeout-only model but also to do something good for local people and projects that need the love now more than ever. This is our Anthem — sung loud, hardcore and rebellious.” – Matt Thompson, Founder, Anthem Pizza.
Matt is also the owner and operator behind Vancouver casual restaurants The Cannibal Café, Park Drive, Alphabet City and The Five Point.
To celebrate its official launch, Anthem will be offering its Motörhead-inspired ‘Ace of Spades’ (a.k.a. Margherita) pizzas for only $10 (regular $18) from Friday, November 20 through Monday, November 30. This exclusive offer is available only when using the promo code ‘ANTHEM’ and ordering online via anthempizza.ca for pickup at The Five Point Restaurant & Pub (3124 Main Street) and Park Drive (1815 Commercial Drive).
Throughout November, Anthem will also donate 10% of its proceeds from each pie sold to Movember, a charity dedicated to addressing and advancing men’s health issues such as mental health and suicide prevention and prostate and testicular cancer.
