Wild Flour Pizza Co. - Vegan Options

We finally made it to Wild Flour Pizza which has been on our list since we got our current copy of the Plant Curious Plant Based Coupon Book. This is a pizza joint started by 2 experienced and creative food people and one of their claims to fame is sourdough crust. Very nice!

It would actually be easy to get there by transit which we did not do in this case. I am 2 weeks out from having a total knee replacement and although I am hobbling around pretty well at this point (more on this in a future posting), I am not quite ready for transit. 

Easy to get to even driving from Aldergrove (but not necessarily easy during rush-hour), WFP is located at Bainbridge and Lougheed Hwy. They have 3 vegan pizzas and a vegan salad on their menu.
Jenny From The Brocc is an excellent salad. The broccoli is roasted but still with just enough crunchiness and in manageable decent sized pieces. It was the dressing and tons of fresh mint that turned this into something really special. The dressing includes date puree and salsa macha (which yes, I had to Google) which is a combinations of dried chilis, nuts, seeds, and garlic all fried in oil. There were pickled onions, more nuts and seeds and balsamic reduction and it is a long time since I've been this excited by a salad.
In my pre-vegan days, I would always judge a pizzeria by it's Margherita. Such a simple pizza that the basics are critical. For vegan pizza, the Margherita is maybe even more challenging as one of the key components is Mozzarella. WFP uses cashew cheese and it was very good compared to some cashew cheese that we have had. The texture was very impressive as was the meltiness and flavour. Wonderfully simple tomato base and lots of shredded basil brought it along but the thing that wowed us was the crust! Sourdough, as I mentioned above and a stone lined gas oven seems to be the key to the very good leoparding and a lovely chew.
Finally, we ordered the Vegan Chorizo, another plant-based masterpiece! They use Impossible Sausage and add their own spice mixture and then serve in on the pie in impressive chunks. With roasted potatoes, caramelized onions, garlic, smoked paprika and on more of the red sauce with cashew cheese, this was another of the best vegan pizzas that we have had. Again, never underestimate the power of a wonderful crust.
Mostly a take out joint, there are 8 seats at a communal table and this is not an unpleasant place to enjoy your pizza and salad.
The best news of all is that a Langley location is in the works! We will be the start of their south of the river fan base. As mentioned above, we used a coupon from our Plant Curious coupon book which has led us to so many gems that we might not have found on our own. Thanks to Clay and Steven et al, and welcome in advance to Langley!
