Die Pie has been getting a lot of hype as Alberta’s first plant based pizzeria. They’re located right beside An Chay and across the street from Soy & Pepper.
We both agreed DP’s outdoor sign was well thought out. The style reminded me a bit of Cleaver (in Calgary). We dropped in for a quick, light meal Wednesday after work to see what all the hype was about.
Menu is up along one wall while a mural of mountains/skyline up on the other.
Kale caesar ($12.00)
Sunflower parmesan, crispy chicken and king oyster bacon. For $12.00, you’d expect a full size portion. Not here. The portion is incredulously small. It would be bearable if it was half the price. CC thought it needed more acidity and had to request a lemon wedge.
Pulled pork (jackfruit) ($18.00)
Chipotle aioli, cashew mozzarella and pea shoots. The pizza was decent and I thought the jackfruit was reminiscent of eating pulled pork. The cashew mozzarella also had a pleasant texture. Sadly, you barely get any of both. I’m not even exaggerating. The lack of toppings was highly disappointing. Why so little jackfruit and cashew mozzarella Die Pie? We get it, it’s expensive, but when you barely get any ingredients, that’s a major concern…
Can’t see us coming back anytime soon. You’re going to have to order a ton of food to get full. I’d rather spend my money elsewhere especially downtown. Sorry not sorry Die Pie.
