Pizza was a lot cheaper in 1972

Canberra is now host to a well-developed pizza industry, but John Moulis has been cleaning his shed and found this business card from 1972 when the newly opened Pizza Hut had a much simpler menu, and considerably lower prices.

EvanJames said :

It sure is puzzling. Whenever I’m in Melbourne I try to sneak away from my group (who are addicted to silly food in hatted restaurants) and find Pizza. And as I sit there, munching on my pizza, I think bitter thoughts about not being able to get this in Canberra and there’s no rational reason.

I’m sadly coming to the conclusion that Canberra pizza tastes run to fat squishy things like mop sponges drenched in cheese, or the dreaded “gourmet” toppings (ie things that ought not be on a pizza).

Spot on.

The best pizza I’ve had in Canberra lately has been from the Costco cafe! I’m also a believer that ‘gourmet pizza’ is ridiculous.

Did anybody see the story on Today Tonight about Domino’s test kitchen where new pizzas are formulated?

There was a segment where the reporter said that they also formulate pizza ideas for France, The Netherlands and three other countries and he found a file which had the recipes for pizzas sold in those other countries.

They can buy a whole range of gourmet pizzas containing ingredients like duck, honey, blue vein cheese and other toppings while all we get is Hawaiian and Meatlovers.

I must admit I liked their Meat Pie pizza which made all too brief appearance five or so years ago. Food for thought.

With you 100% EvanJames. Is it because Canberra doesn’t have a large Italian migrant population or is it because we accept mediocre? Either way for a city this size it doesn’t make sense.

Encore do a 9″, 12″ and 15″ family sized pizza.

Excellent value too.
