I'm not going to lie, I'm not the biggest fan of pizza. I could never find a really great one, but that's because I had not yet discovered The Burrow! Walking down Boundary Street on a cool autumn night, I managed to strut past my usual haunts to find what is soon to be my new local pizza shop. In the dark evening, this new space of beautifully dressed timber beams, long wide communal tables, great music, tasty pizzas and a healthy beer list of great boutique brews is like a candle to a hungry moth.
This is not your classic Italian pizza place and it's not your '90s fusion pizza disaster. The Burrow has managed to create a smart mix of pizzas, some in the more traditional style and others with the mindset of 'let's just make it tasty'. When looking down at the menu, my heart flutters as I come across the ‘lucky chick’ pizza, consisting of harissa chicken, artichoke and caramelised onions on a thin (not too crispy) pizza base with a great chewy quality ($18). If you're up for a challenge, ‘the calzone of champions’ is filled with champignons, ham, cheese and artichoke then topped with napoli and parmesan ($18). It will have you relaxing your belt buckle to try and fit the monster in! The ‘mr potatohead’ pizza is also great and is just that - rosemary seasoned sliced potato, parmesan and prosciutto($18). This is taking you down the more classic vein of pizza traditions.
The mood at The Burrow is casual and relaxed with no pretence. The staff are really helpful and their relaxed nature helps to make you feel welcome. This is the perfect place to catch up with friends or a chill for a relaxed mid-week dinner.
Take off your fancy tie and horribly high heels and pop on your favourite hoodie and cons' to enjoy a delicious pizza in the comfort of The Burrow.
