VICTORIA – LEONARDO’S PIZZA PALACE

The delicious reviewers rated Leonardo’s Pizza Palace as the best pizzeria in Victoria, where it beat out stiff competition from all over the state. 

The old-school eatery is popular among locals because it serves classic Italian fare in a den-like atmosphere – complete with retro Italian brochures, a classic soundtrack and woodfired pizzas. 

Menu highlights include a Ramblr Chinese Bolognese pizza, which comes as a bolognese topped with white sauce, fior di latte and scallions.

However, you can also find classics such as a pepperoni, ham and pineapple or four cheese.

Wine lovers will enjoy the fact that there is a decent list of reds and whites on offer.

Favourites in an impressive menu include the slow roasted lamb, smokey capsicum sauce, goats cheese, herb yogurt, dill and mozzarella pizza.

Diners can also enjoy incredible house pasta and antipasti boards.

Among one of the more swish offerings, Queensland’s Tartufo offers traditional Neapolitan pizza at semi-affordable prices.

Italian chef Tony Percuoco whips up any number of delicious pizzas for around the $25 price point.   

What sets these slices apart is the fact that Tony was actually born in Naples, and his pizzas remain the only ones in Brisbane to have been accredited by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana.

This is the Naples-based association with a 20-page tome of exacting regulations for making authentic pizza.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA – MADRE

Madre in Adelaide is a Neapolitan restaurant with a difference.

The creative restaurant is the first in the southern hemisphere to use sea water in its pizza dough – and indeed one of just a handful across the world.

Italian chef Ettore Bertonati famously imports sea water from his hometown of Naples to use as the only salt in his sourdough mix.

Pizza-wise, he opts for classic options and traditional tastes.

It’s so good it’s been described as a ‘slice of heaven’ and Margaret River’s ‘not so secret spot’.

And if it’s unpretentious, authentic and generous pizzas you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Pizzica

The restaurant offers around 12 ‘pizze rosse’ – or pizzas made with a red sauce base, and five ‘pizze bianche’ – which are baked with just olive oil as the sauce.

Everything is woodfired, and booking is essential.
