The Best Pizza in Melbourne
Melbourne established its pizza credentials long ago. The now-closed Toto’s Pizza House, our first pizzeria, opened on Lygon Street in 1961. Neapolitan-style pizza – woodfired, crisp at the edges, pliant in the middle – has dominated restaurants ever since, with spots like Pizza D’Asporto and 48h Pizza e Gnocchi Bar developing loyal followings. More recently, a new generation has done some tinkering with interesting results. Capitano and Deep End have embraced pie styles from North America, while Red Sparrow and Green Acre show that plant-based pizzas can please even the most avid omnivores. As much as we love staunchly traditional takes, it’s hard to beat the excitement of tasting something new and original to Melbourne.
