Feast on breaky, burgers, and wood-fired pizzas at this Gabba newcomer
We’ve found our Neesh.
Nothing tops a good slice of ‘za.
It’s there for you after a big night, it’s enjoyed by the metre with family and friends in celebration, and it makes for a cheap pre-payday feed after an internet hunt for coupon codes.
Brace yourself for meat that can’t be beat, wood-fired slices in all their glory, and unique combinations that’ll tickle your curiosity. Welcome to our top picks of Brisbane’s pizza scene.
This little laneway joint does classic Italian bases topped with mod flavours (and the wine list is pretty tops, too). We rate their pepperoni, especially when dipped in extra ranch, and especially on Mondays and Tuesdays when a pie will set you back just $15!
This sweet suburban spot is cranking up the oven and wood-firing yummies like duo mushroom, BBQ pulled pork and hoisin duck, alongside share plates, burgers, and more. Perfect for the whole family to dig into or just to snack on alongside a beer with the gang, Neesh’s wood-fired pizzas are the talk of the south side…
You know what goes great with pizza? Wine (or do we just love wine that much? Hmm). Handily being first and foremost a wine bar, Mr. Chester has got the goods to go with an almighty diavolo–we’re talking passata, scamorza, salame inferno, hot sauce, and house pickled red capsicum on a thicc base. It’ll get hot in here, but for the love of God, don’t take off all your clothes.
A wood-fired pizza so good, you’ll forgo glancing at the specials board. Julius is the Italian pizzeria that brings us all things traditional with an A+ for execution. With a bianche base, the Tartufo stacks up on mozzarella, smoked bacon, portobello mushrooms, stracchino, and truffle paste, and we can’t get enough of it. Seriously, help us.
The main menu at Bar Alto is all about pasta and fresh, Italian dishes, while the bar menu is all about the ‘za, baby! Head to the bar, order a beer, cocktail or glass of vino, and enjoy the contemporary pizza offerings like italian sausage, pickled Lombardo pepper, and fior di latte on a red base, or zucchini flower, chilli, garlic, and macadamia on white base.
Some farmers grow crops, others make perfect pizzas. The Farmer at Corbett & Claude starts with a smokey barbecue sauce base, topped with fior di latte, crispy chicken and red onion, and seals the deal with a swirl of chipotle aioli. E-i-e-i-oh yes.
If the thought of a wagyu cheeseburger pizza doesn’t make you drool, we can’t be friends. Little G’s menu features pizza, pizza, and more pizza, with some wild toppings, and some more conservative options, including an A1 margherita. Turns our we have a big appetite when it comes to Little G.
Stop by these fresh and funky venues to get your hands on the Rustica with mozzarella, baked potatoes, pork and fennel sausage, taleggio, evoo, and basil, and dream of the Italia.
Looking for a great, classic Italian joint? Look no further than King Street’s famous Il Verde, and its wood-fired beauties. Their signature slice, Pizza Il Verde, is topped with fior di latte, house made tomato sugo, wild rocket, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, olive oil, and hella parmesan. Go hard, but be sure to leave room for a Nutella calzone for dessert…
Slice, slice, baby.
