Nothing beats a homemade, wood-fired pizza topped with several cheeses.. yum. Also the perfect delivery item, many of the pizza restaurants in Collingwood offer excellent takeaway options, so keep an eye on that.
We want to get you excited and thinking about your ideal pizza with the QIKI Cuisine Check, where we describe what gives pizza restaurants in Collingwood their authentic touch. From there, see the QIKI Primer to find our favorite pizza specialties from local Collingwood establishments. Finally, celebrate the Italian cultural gift that put the heart of Naples right here in Melbourne.
Most pizza restaurants in Collingwood do it right – woodfired pizza with brick lining. It’s the classic “Italian stove” for pizza, so check to see if your pick has a quality burner. From there, also ask the place if their dough is homemade and where they get their fresh produce from, like olives and tomatoes.! Pizza restaurants in Collingwood are known for quality ingredients; many Italian-Aussie immigrants missed their Mediterranean taste so much they opened groceries alongside their restaurants to serve the community fresh produce!
Finally, you can make sure the blend of cheeses and sauce that go into your pizza match your preference. Some sauces come with cheeses melted in, while others are pure red with basil and olive oil. Pesto and white sauce bases are available at the local pizza restaurants in Collingwood, too. Also, remember toppings! Some of our favorites include the list below:
3. Roasted Chicken
4. Italian Sausage
7. Sea Salt
8. Fresh Basil
10. Bell Peppers
Getting the perfect combination of 2-23 toppings provides your pizza a flavor balance to the crust, sauce, and cheese. Pick your favorite to mix and match, but don’t feel the need to go overboard: balancing the pizza is key, not overloading it!
