GRAB A SLICE OF WORLD PIZZA DAY | The Gourmand & Gourmet


The most important day in the calendar is upon us: World Pizza Day. A celebration dedicated to our major food group and source of eternal happiness lands on Friday Feb 9, so get around it!
The Fox | South Brisbane
Competitive? Get a slice of the action at The Fox, because they’re hosting a pizza eating challenge! At 5pm, competitors will take to the stage and battle it out to win eternal praise, glory AND a whole months worth of free pizza.
The Regatta | Toowong
This riverside pub is celebrating with a pop-up pizzeria in the courtyard, serving up traditional Italian-style wood fire pizzas from 2pm till late. Go for classic salami, or sweeten up with a dessert pizza featuring ricotta, strawberries, marshmallow and Nutella swirl. But then again, why not have both? Mangia!    
Jonny’s Pizzeria | Fortitude Valley
Bakery Lane’s newest joint, Jonny’s Pizzeria, is hosting an Italian Disco for Pizza Day. Serving $5 pizzas with a drink purchase, enjoy your on-tap Aperol Spritz while you listen to their live DJ. Dive in!
Salts Meats Cheese | Newstead
If you’re someone who likes to venture from the controversial ham & pineapple, then head to Salts Meats Cheese. Commemorating this magnificent day with the release of two limited edition pizzas that combine the best of two carb-tastic worlds, it’s time for Carbonara Pizza and Bolognese Pizza #drool. Got a pizza craving that would rival even the Ninja Turtles? Check out our list Pizza Joints In and Around Brissy. Pizza, we salute you.
