Neapolitan-style pizza – woodfired, crisp at the edges, pliant in the middle – used to dominate Perth's restaurants. Now though, a new generation has being doing some tinkering. The results are interesting – it’s now easy to find pizzas that go toe-to-toe with the best Neapolitan interpretations, despite being cooked in electric ovens or using something other than the revered San Marzano tomato.

Whatever type of pizza you like, Perth has it. American? Yep. Classic Roman? Yep. Vegan? Of course. We like them all, so long as they're well-made. Here's where to find the city's finest pizzaiolos doing their thing.
