For 11 years, Avatara Pizza has been providing Calgarians with authentic- tasting pizza. They started back in the day toting a pizza cart, progressed to the Avatara Food Truck and finally a sit-down restaurant in Parkdale. Three years later, they changed their menu to provide healthier choices and gluten-free pizza increasing their customer following to include those willing to drive across town to indulge. Owner and General Operations Manager Chris Iturbe has a passion for the science behind food and works hard to perfect new recipes using methods he tests many times before adding to the menu. His travels inspire new recipes like the Taco Fiesta pizza he created this year for the (unfortunately cancelled) Calgary Stampede. During a trip to Mexico, he obtained an authentic family recipe for tacos al pastor, this became the inspiration for this pizza available on his menu. Sauces are made in house, ingredients sourced locally, and toppings always fresh. Follow them on social for future expansion plans.
