Meet the owner

Most people don’t find their calling while they’re still in high school – but when Bob Collins was offered the chance to buy the pizza place he worked at as a teenager, he took the opportunity to create a restaurant all his own. Pizza Bob’s originally opened as Tom’s House of Pizza in 1964, and Bob took over ownership in 1977. By 1999, he was ready to break away from the franchise to become more independent.

While Bob said the thin-crust style of pizza has stayed the same, he wanted to offer a wider variety of high-quality toppings – including custom-made Italian meats, smoked salmon and vine-ripened tomato sauce. “We keep everything as fresh as possible, and as healthy as possible, too,” Bob says. “That’s my philosophy, so I try to incorporate it into my pizza. We do get a lot of compliments – when you’re offering quality ingredients, that’s coming through in the whole, final package.”

The dough is made in-house using organic flour, and the mozzarella is 100 per cent milk-based – no soy, no fillers. Still, Bob aims to keep his pies at a reasonable price, despite the added expense of sourcing all-natural ingredients whenever possible. In Kensington, he says, people want high-quality, healthy food. “It’s a unique style for the area, since we have a brick hearth oven,” Bob says. “All our pizzas are really popular – there’s not a single one I could take off the menu without disappointing someone.”

Gluten Free Pizza Delicious in Calgary

Hey! I recently found out that I am alergic to wheat of all things, so I figured I was condemned to a no pizza existence, which for me is a fate worse than death. BUT WAIT! Last week I went to my old buddy Pizza Bob's plave in Calgary, and tied something new. A gluten free pizza! That means, it has no wheat flour at all. I had the newest gluten free offering, which was the gluten free pulled pork. WHOA! Instead of tomatoe sauce, they have a buttery pork kind a gravy on it. Anyways, the sauce was amazing, and the pizza was the best I ever had at Pizza Bobs. I actually enjoyed it MORE than my usual, which used to me "Ami's Favorite". Wow, I hope more restaurants start serving gluten free food, because I was amazed that it could be so good. How about a gluten free bagel or croisant? Do they exist? I'm gonna find out. Try this pulled pork pizza, if you don't flip over it, I will be shocked. Yummie! Of course, the rest of my Pizza Bob experience was the usual... great friendly people, live blues music and Kareokee on the weekends. Kensington rd at crowchild. I love it.

Take a short trip on bus No. 73 to enjoy thin-crust pizza that’s heavy on fresh toppings at the delightfully dive-y Pizza Bob’s. The food is great, and the restaurant presents live music and karaoke in the evenings, but the real kicker is that the place offers free corkage every night of the week. Bring your own wine, grab a pie and soak in the ’70s atmosphere.

Pizza Bob’s pies feature some splashy and savoury ingredients. Try the smoked salmon pizza topped with cold-smoked Pacific salmon, red peppers, capers and dill and served on a cream-cheese crust. Also recommended, the barbecue chipotle pulled pork pizza features a garlic-butter crust topped with pulled pork, mushrooms, peppers, caramelized onions and cheddar.

If a pulled pork pizza is exactly what you’re craving, visit Pizza Bob’s. Located in an unassuming strip mall, the pizzeria is no longer a Parkdale neighbourhood secret. More than a mere pizza takeout joint, you can dine in on a Friday night and sing karaoke to your heart’s content, or if you are more of a listener, visit on Saturday nights for live music. Have the barbecue chipotle pulled pork pizza or create your own (plus pulled pork) with the make-your-own pizza option. Note: Pizza Bob’s offers free corkage (a rarity in Calgary).
