FIVE PICKS FOR PIZZA IN BRISBANE

From giant pepperoni-topped slices to vegan rounds, we've got you covered.

From chewy Neapolitan pizzas to giant five-cheese topped slices, decent gluten-free bases and inventive vegan toppings, Brisbane's pizza stores cover all the variations. Here are five places that keep us coming back for stretchy buffalo mozzarella, pillowy bases and perfect toppings.

    It’s a long-term Oxford Street favourite, but the vast majority of people who dine at Sugo Mi do so for the pizza. The pizzas are thin-crust but not over-crisp or brittle, and the dough is oven-charred but elastic in texture, offering the right amount of bite and resistance. Split into rosso (red) and bianco (white) sauces, the. flavours are simple, straightforward and complementary — not too crowded. And yes, the sugo itself is sweet and flavoursome; however the sugo-less bianco pizzas are just as popular as their red counterparts. Plus, visit the adjacent Sugo Mi groceria on your way out, which stocks Italian food products and take-home gelato.

    Little G

    Little more than a hole in the wall next to Gertrude & Mabel on Gladstone Road, what Little G lacks in size it makes up for in the kind of pizza you’ll want to go back for again and again. So just what’ll inspired such a response? Well, that’d be pizza combinations such as pear, gorgonzola and proscuitto; potato, smoked paprika and roasted garlic; and mac ‘n’ cheese and lardo. Yum. From the “not pizza” section the menu, feast on a selection of salumi and accompaniments,  or brussel sprouts with mozzarella and crackling. And for dessert? Well, let’s just say that Nutella arancini is about to become your new favourite treat.

    Opened in early 2017, Neighbourhood Pizza is a classy little pizza joint plonked squarely in the suburbs. A tightly edited menu features several of pizza’s greatest hits – the Hawaiian and a classic pepperoni, for instance – as well as branching out into more modern terrain with a zucchini, ricotta cream, goats cheese and preserved lemon vegetarian option. You can substitute wheat-filled pizza bases for a gluten free alternative for $3. The sides are moorish and delicious — think meatballs, fries and crumbly mozzarella sticks. As with the pizza, the drinks list is also to the point.

    Step into the light, airy space that is Italian Street Kitchen, and you’re immediately greeted with a glass-walled open space where a round pizza oven commands pride of place. As it should, with options that include the buffalo margherita ($15.50) and the funghi — with three cheeses and meaty Swiss brown mushrooms ($16) — among others. Expect thin, crisp pizza cooked to perfection , with each pizza spending precisely two minutes and 15 seconds in the rotating pizza oven. But how to slice? Wield the pair of scissors in your table caddy to make short work of divvying it up. The scissors put you in charge of doling out exactly how much pie you’re willing to tackle, and yes, “all of it” is a perfectly reasonable answer.

    One of Sydney’s favourite Italian eateries has made its bricks-and-mortar debut in the Queensland capital. Yes, that means more pizza. While their Italian eats offering spans everything from antipasto to pasta to gelato cocktails, you know you can’t pass up the venue’s pizza bar — which boasts eight tomato- and six white-based varieties, plus two calzones. For dessert, Nutella pizza with ricotta, fresh strawberries and vanilla gelato sits alongside apple cake, affogato and panna cotta. Plus, head along on Monday nights, spend $20 plus the price of whatever drink takes your fancy, and eat as many slices of ‘za as you like.
