iN WINE: The best pizza on patios in the Okanagan

Dunnenzies Gambino Cheeseburger pizza - it has dill pickles!

So here are some perfect places to eat pizza on patios with pairings and pals. Cheers!

Dunnenzies Pizza Co. now has four locations and their new Mission digs has an awesome patio, perfect to hang out with beers and za.
