PIZZA FOR THE PEOPLE: ANTHEM PIZZA MAKES ITS VANCOUVER DEBUT WITH $10 ‘ACE OF SPADES’ MARGHERITA PIZZAS AND MOVEMBER DONATION
New ‘Cloud Kitchen’ Take-Out Concept Champions Punk Rock-Inspired ‘Pizza with Purpose’, Gives Slice of Each Pie Back to Worthy Causes
A new ‘cloud kitchen’ take-out concept that brings ‘pizza with purpose’ to the people in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and gives a slice of the pie back to worthy causes in the community bursts onto the scene this month when Anthem Pizza makes its Vancouver debut on Thursday, November 19.
Available for pickup and delivery daily from 3 to 10 p.m., Anthem serves up a menu of no-fuss 14” pies and sides with names inspired by rock icons like Bowie (‘Hunky Dory‘ — prosciutto, banana peppers, mozzarella and pineapple jam), The Beastie Boys (‘Sabotage‘ — chorizo sausage, pepperoni, roasted chicken, prosciutto, mozzarella) and Iggy Pop (‘Blah Blah Blah‘ — Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, fior di latte, Grana Padano, Provolone, EVOO) in current-events-inspired boxes with a DIY punk-rock aesthetic that features the limited-edition works of David Bircham and other local artists.
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) and is limited to one pizza per customer nightly while supplies last.
Anthem is also a proud, community driven enterprise that thinks outside the box and aims to change the world one pizza at a time by giving back to different designated charities each quarter. To start, partial proceeds from the sale of all Anthem pizzas will be directed to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Unison Benevolent Fund, which helps Canadian musicians in times of hardship, illness or economic difficulties by providing counselling and emergency relief.
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.
The colourfully edgy and collectible works of art pasted to the top of each Anthem box will also be available in suitable-for-framing poster form as well as emblazoned on Anthem T-shirts for $25 each plus tax and shipping via anthempizza.ca/shop, with further proceeds from sales donated to Movember and other charitable causes and initiatives.
“Every pie we’re putting out is made with a very important ingredient: purpose,” says Anthem Pizza Founder Matt Thompson, who also owns and operates beloved casual hangouts The Cannibal Café, Park Drive, Alphabet City and The Five Point. “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.”
