Head Chef



Founded in Vancouver by passionate foodies, Virtuous Pie was created to provide great-tasting pizza + ice cream for our bodies and the planet.

Innovation + surprise are at the core of our culinary efforts. From day one, we decided that we would take a handcrafted approach to our menus. Our hand-stretched dough, beloved plant-based cheese, and creamy small-batch ice creams are all created by our dedicated kitchen team in-house.

Every day our restaurant team members bring the Virtuous Pie vision to life, whether it be in kitchen executing a special-order pizza or assisting a customer to select the perfect scoop for dessert.
