VANCOUVER — Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar has launched a series of new menu items, including a new 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 its traditional Neapolitan-style pizzas, feature shredded mozzarella and are loaded with toppings. Thick-crust pizzas include The Triple Double, with 52 slices of pepperoni; Italian Job, loaded with three Italian deli-style meats; Tuscan Forno Chicken, with a full breast of Italian seasoned chicken; Famoso California, loaded with prawns; Chorizo Grande Deluxe with two full chorizo sausages; and the Bacon Double Cheeseburger, featuring Famoso’s beef, pork and ricotta meatballs.
The brand has also launched a selection of plant-based pizzas, served on Famoso’s classic Neapolitan crust, topped with rossa sauce, dairy-free cheese from Daiya Foods and Yves Veggie Cuisine plant-based pepperoni.
Another addition is the introduction of Forno-Style Wings — a new concept for the restaurant. The wings are roasted in Famoso’s bell-shaped ovens and are available in four flavours: Traditional Hot Buffalo, Sweet Bourbon BBQ, Montreal-style Salt & Pepper and Italian-style Pesto & Parmesan.
Famoso has also launched new pasta offerings, including Rigatoni Ragu and Linguine Rose with Prawns; traditional Italian dishes such as Chicken Piccata and Prawns a la Diavolo; and Italian-inspired desserts including Orange Ricotta Cheesecake and Traditional Tiramisu.
