Today, you might want to set aside some time to start plotting the quickest route from your work to Coburg, because Moreland Road's newly opened Stretched Pizza is dishing up free pizza from 5pm.

From the same team behind foodie hot-spots like Pizza e Birra and Long Story Short (in Brunswick and Port Melbourne), Stretched has had locals salivating since opening its doors a few weeks ago, and today — Thursday, April 19 — it's celebrating by treating its first 100 customers to a few slices of pizza, on the house.

This ain't your average pizza situation either. Here, expect fluffy hand-stretched bases, many carrying weird-yet-wonderful topping combinations and cheeky names to match.

We're talking creations like The Hangover, with its burger-inspired mix of bacon, ground beef, ketchup, mustard and American cheddar, and The Un-Pho-Gettable, where Vietnamese soup meets pizza in a tasty explosion of steak, sprouts, Sriracha and Vietnamese basil. Other hits include the more traditional combo of mushroom, ham, artichokes and olives, and the Lobster With The Mobster, featuring garlic prawns and peas.

Stretched is destined to win over the masses too, thanks to a hefty range of vegan and vegetarian options, and the gluten-free bases that come at no extra charge. A true pizza blessing.

Stretched Pizza's opening party kicks off from 5–7pm on April 19, with one free pizza going to each of the first 100 customers through the door. After 7pm, all pizzas will be priced at $10 for the rest of the evening. Find it at 53 Moreland Road, Coburg. For more info, visit
