Eat all the best pizza around Brisbane

Pizza has become a staple in the Australian diet, but have you been eating the best pizza in town? Satisfy those doughy cravings and don’t waste another minute on a sub-par pizza experience – here’s where you can find Brisbane’s best pizza.   

Beccofino, Teneriffe

A consistently busy restaurant can mean only one thing… consistently epic food! Renowned by Brisbane locals as one of the best Italian joints in Brisbane, Beccofino continues to live up to this name with authentic and mouth-watering pizzas. 

Top pick: Tartufo 

Julius Pizzeria, South Brisbane

After you’ve tried one of Julius’ ‘delizioso’ pizza’s, it will come as no surprise that this Italian joint is owned by the same people as Beccofino. Take a glance at the specials board for interesting pizza combinations – to us, constantly changing specials is the perfect excuse for frequent visits. 

Top pick: Prosciutto or weekly special 

Pizzeria Violetta, Kenmore & Wilston

Less is more at Pizzeria Violetta. The pizzas are traditional with a light sauce and few toppings, but are always packed with flavour. For a classic option, the margherita is a winner but for people who like a bit of spice, the Diavola is a specialty with hot ‘inferno’ salame. 

Top pick: Diavola 

Superfly Pizza, Woolloongabba

Superfly Pizza is serving a concise menu of hand-stretched pizzas within a secluded laneway in Woolloongabba. Yes you can opt for your regular shroom, margherita or meatlovers pizza, or be a little bold and choose from their rotating, adventurous list of specials, which has seen the likes of beef stroganoff, pumpkin & blue cheese and smoked salmon with a dill & ricotta base being served to keen locals and pizza lovers.

Top pick: weekly specials

Tinderbox, Fortitude Valley

Tinderbox Kitchen

Straight from the roaring Beech wood-fired oven to your plate – Tinderbox Kitchen serves up pizzas and modern Italian cuisine.

Little g, Dutton Park

Severely underrated and hidden among the streets of Dutton Park, Little g serves classic, authentic but entirely epic pizzas to the lucky locals.

Neighbourhood, Kenmore

A cosy but artfully decorated pizza bar in the heart of suburban Kenmore is exactly what the doctor ordered.
