With homemade dough warmed in wood fired brick stoves, many pizza restaurants in Northcote have pies achieving the perfect balance of a smoky crispy crust and melty cheese. The dough never gets flimsy or soggy, but the crust is never burnt or dry. Sometimes draped in olive oil, every bite of these pizza pies is delicious.
With red sauce bases, white sauce bases, bbq sauce bases, and pesto sauce bases, you really cannot go wrong with your options at the pizza restaurants in Northcote. Each one has an awesome flavor profile we’ll briefly touch on below:
Red sauce: Made from pureed San Marzano tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper red sauce has a bold, rich, savory flavor from the “umami” in the tomatoes. An absolute classic and most popular sauce choice at the pizza restaurants in Northcote.
White Sauce: Made with milk, basil, butter, Italian seasoning, olive oil, and potentially more, white sauce pizzas have a creamy rich flavor. Emboldened by the blend of milk, butter, and cheese, this pizza is a rich choice. Goes great with BBQ chicken on top!
Pesto Sauce: Made from crushed basil, pine nuts, olive oil, lemon zest, salt, and pepper, pesto sauce gives a fresh, aromatic twist to your pizza. Absolutely excellent with bell peppers and chicken on top.
BBQ sauce: BBQ Pizza is only for those who love smoky BBQ so much, it literally bleeds into their pizza life. We recommend asking the pizza restaurant in Northcote if they specialize in BBQ flavoring, because capturing the smoky, sweet, tangy overtones of BBQ is hard on a pizza. Some do it beautifully, so feel free to order if your heart = BBQ.
We hope describing the different pizza sauce bases helps you sort out what flavors you’re in the mood for. Also consider that fresh toppings include mushrooms, sliced bell pepper, squash, olives, pepperoni, bacon, sausage, chicken, pork, and more. When you put these toppings to your favorite base sauce base, culinary magic happens.
Italian-Aussies are some of the most endearing, charming people on the entire planet. They come during war-ravaged times in the 50s, and many Italian-Aussie families have touched the hearts and filled the bellies of their fellow Aussie countrymen – for decades now. In fact, they refer to themselves as “happy people,” a generation of people who brought a true vibrancy to the culinary scene in Melbourne. The Italians enriched all our lives – and diets.
We want to leave you with this little anecdote from a national article. It is a bit sad, but it touched our hearts how deep and how gracious our fellow Italian Aussies are.
