Neighbourhood Pizza

A put-together pizza and drinks joint in the 'burbs.

Uncontroversial opinion: you can never have too much pizza.

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. Experienced bar staff serve up a range of refreshing tipples, from a summer favourite Aperol Spritz to a whiskey apple with apple juice squeezed to order, to the menu's more experimental moments, like the Ink Gin Floral Martini.

Tunes emanate softly from the team's vinyl record player – feel free to make a song request. The staff will likely play it if they have it on record. If you can get there in time, from Wednesday to Friday there's a happy hour from 5-6pm with $5 pots and slices on offer.
