Any Good *Delivered* Pizza in Canberra?

By nhand42 - 26 November 2013 29

Is there anywhere left in Canberra that makes and delivers good pizza?

To clarify, Dominos and Pizza Hut are both abominations. And Crust is not that far removed from the garbage served by Dominos and Pizza Hut.

Good Pizza is something assembled by a 60+ year old man from the old country; for example, the pizza from Steve’s Melba Takeaway. But he doesn’t deliver 🙁

I’m suffering from the absolute hell-hole that is Canberra pizza franchises. They are all insults to pizza. Which restaurants know how to make pizza and also deliver?

What’s Your opinion?

In answer to the OP’s question, yes. Witness: http://www.pizzaarte.com.au/

But…dunno how wide their delivery run will go. Presumably all over the inner south, but I’d doubt if they’d travel farther. If I felt like paying mega bucks for pizza instead of making my own I’d drive across town for sure. I’ll readily concede that delivery has its advantages tho, especially if you don’t have a car or if you’re over the limit.

I wouldn’t trust a place that misuses an apostrophe so many times with something as important as a pizza…now I want Vominos again. ;)p

#11 – Still won’t consider it a gourmet food. It’s not like I rock up to Quay and order quail for entree and a pizza for main…just doesn’t happen. Agree on good bases but I really love that we have such a wide range of toppings on pizzas in Australia. A lot of other countries (incl Italy) don’t have as many. Go Aussie.

If you want a wide range of pizza/food to choose from that can be delivered then move to a real city.

Buy a breadmaker and use that to make the dough. Takes all the effort out of it. Then all you need to do is punch it flat, throw your tomato cheese olives thyme and anchovies on it, pop it in a hot oven and you’re done.

You will never get anything better delivered. In fact you’ll be hard-pressed getting anything delivered on-premise either.
I remember the Marco Polo club at Queanbeyan had great pizzas. Ostani in Barton started off OK, too.
Sadly, all pizza makers eventually respond to the demands of their ignorant clientele by loading up their pizzas Dominos-style.

If you are desperate, get a Dominos with limited toppings on the thin crust. It’s definitely edible.

Pizza snobbery? What nonsense…make it yourself if you’re such a hotshot. I don’t think pizza is ever “gourmet”….but there is a price to pay for convenience, and sometimes that’s quality. Nothing wrong with a dirty Double Bacon Cheeseburger pizza from Vominos now and then…

I disagree. It is this notion of a “gourmet pizza” that caused the sorry excuses for the real thing to become standard. Too many toppings, too much sauce, waaaay too much cheese and way too many choices on the menu. I crave real Italian pizzas, with minimal toppings. Pizza Arte is the only place in Canberra that I’ve tried that does them properly. But I don’t think they deliver and they’re nowhere near me. There’s a place in Kingston that’s not bad either, but I’ve only eaten in there and the manager has a Jesus complex.

But if anyone knows where to get real Italian pizza on the far North, pleeeeaaaasse let me know!

IThat being said.. $5 pizzas on Monday and Tuesday from Vominos are awesome value for those of us who are rather broke !

No. They are crap. The box tastes better than the contents.

Well said. On all accounts!

I doubt you’ll find any of the decent takeaways who do a good pizza wont deliver.

as you just seem to be decrying the lack of good pizza, I’m assuming that you are not prevented in anyway from actually picking your pizza up?

I’m always a bit non-plussed about the need to get ‘takeaway’ food items delivered to your door. And the corresponding refusal to get something on the basis they don’t deliver.

If Steve’s pizza is good, and no others meet that standard, go and get one.

Invest in a pizza stone (about $20), and have a bash yourself – at which point I would note that cooking them on a Weber or normal BBQ seems to be the way to get a crisper finish.

Steve’s in Melba is good but as you said, no deliveries.
Charny’s Regal Chook Shop does a good one too, but a bit too greasy for me, not sure if they deliver.
Not sure if the pizza shop in Lyneham is still there, but they used to be excellent.

You might have to call a few places till you find someone who delivers and you like.

Zucchini Brothers down at Chisholm does a good pizza, however not sure if they deliver, and if they do they almost certainly would keep it to the local area.

It’s really not that hard or time consuming to make a decent pizza dough yourself, then you can have whatever you want on it.

Not that I’m aware of. The places like Pizza Gusto that make good pizza seem to be so run off their feet from dine in and pick up customers that they don’t bother with the trouble of deliveries.
