ICYMI, February 9 is National Pizza Day so you’re allowed to eat allll the pizza –including Melbourne’s best dessert pizzas. We’ve got everything from salted caramel pizzas. el cheapo pizza’s and Australia’s first vegan Nutella-esque pizza. We’ve listed the top 6 dessert pizza’s in Melbourne.
This one is for the kids and the kids-at-heart. Track down where Happy Camper is parked for the day and grab a pizza smothered in Nutella & M&Ms or Nutella & marshmallows. Looking for something fruitier? If you’re lucky, you can grab a fresh mixed berries pizza drizzled with balsamic syrup, maple syrup and crème fresh. They run out quickly so chop chop.
Don’t expect your typical Nutella-covered pizza at Baby’s. This is a pizza for the grown-ups. Baby’s serves up a salted caramel pizza topped with poached pear, lemon thyme crumble and nougat gelato. It’s so addictive that you’ll need to restrain yourself from licking the plate clean (do it anyways!)
Red Sparrow Pizzeria
Opening later this month, this is one for the vegans. Red Sparrow is Australia’s first 100% vegan pizzeria and they’re serving a dessert pizza drowning in a homemade hazelnut spread that’ll have even the biggest dairy and egg lovers considering the merits of going vegan. Well played guys.
If you’re going to do a classic, do it well. And no one does a classic Nutella pizza with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries like +39. They offer a mini version for one or a maxi to share (or the maxi for just one, no judgement…!) Die-hard Nutella addicts can also pick up a couple of their famous Nutella doughnuts on their way out.
Beer, Wine and Calzone
Nutella, bananas and custard are already a winning combo. But when you stuff it into pizza dough and bake it, it’s next level. Yup, we’re talking about a Nutella calzone and master baker Marino Maffi makes a truly exceptional one.
Last, but not the least is the beloved Bimbo’s because who doesn’t love a cheap eat? Most Melburnians know that their savoury pizzas will set you back a cool $4 – which, let’s be honest, just means more beer. But would you believe they also serve up some delish dessert pizzas? There’s Chocolate Royal (Belgian dark chocolate & mascarpone), Bananarama (banana, mascarpone & maple syrup), Berry Delicious (mixed berries & mascarpone) and Choco Loco Cherry (cherries, mascarpone, white chocolate & 100 & 1000s.
PS: calories don’t count on National holidays…
