It's not every day you get to try a world-famous dish without leaving the country. But that's exactly what Sydneysiders are in for when Joe Beddia brings a taste of his renowned Philadelphia pizzeria to Bondi later this month.
Hailed by Bon Appétit as the best pizza in America, Pizzeria Beddia's pies have a seriously good rep, and you don't want to miss their week-long appearance at Bondi Beach Public Bar, running from July 22 to 28. The pop-up will open at 6pm and sling pizzas until sold out.
Beddia's original two-employee-only shopfront in Fishtown, Philadelphia, shut its doors in March to make way for a larger operation launching later this year. Sad news for locals, maybe, but as it turns out, a big win for the pizza lovers of Sydney.
Having made every single pizza ever served at his cult favourite restaurant, Joe Beddia is now out to win over a new legion of Aussie fans, from a 60-seat Bondi pop-up pizzeria crafted entirely from pizza boxes. He'll be slinging a range of his signature, non-traditional pizzas starring local ingredients and matched with a cracking wine list curated by BBPB sommelier James Hird.
