Zucchini Brothers Pizza?

By SFC 10 February 2013 40

Dear Mr Zucchini,

Despite none of your pizzas actually containing either zucchini OR brothers, we are big fans of your work, and lament your absence since December.

It was rumoured that you would be reopening mid-February but having recently tried to call you and found your number disconnected, and the location of your new digs clearly vacant, it seems unlikely.

Are you ever coming back to us? Or are we forever doomed to walk the earth, comparing your pizzas to others and finding them sadly lacking?

Yours in anticipation,

Us.

P.S If any Rioters know what’s going on, feel free to comment! We’re also curious as to when/if the new Pizza Capers is opening at Erindale. Their Bourbon Chicken pizza is quite possibly the best thing I have ever eaten – besides Zucchini Brothers of course!

What’s Your opinion?

Anything would be an improvement compared to the old dingy one.

So which Zucchini pizzas are the best?

The round ones.

It is definitely the same owner/family running the shop. Pizza are still the best in Canberra and the new shop looks great!

Sorry to dig up an old thread – but they are back!

They are now on the other side of the Local Liquor, in the same stretch of shops at Chisholm.
Just a “pizza and pasta bar” now (read: takeaway) but the menu looks similar and they are claiming the Zucchini Bros heritage.
While I’ve grabbed a takeout menu, I’m having spare ribs tonight.
So I’d welcome feedback from anyone who gives them a go! *crosses fingers*

This is very exciting stuff, is it the same owner?

I like the CostCo pizzas. For a cheap takeaway they’re the best of a fairly average bunch.

Pity they’re too big to fit into my oven 🙁

Pity my stomach is large enough to fit one…

Not a fan of Crust – overpriced and nothing special at all.

JesterNoir 11:22 am 19 Mar 13

Crust is tasty, but overpriced and unfilling. (Mostly due to the lack of topping. It tastes good, but there’s not a lot of it.)

Alas, I only discovered Zucchini Brothers pizza shortly before they went AWOL and would love them to come back. The one time we ate it, we had two pizzas between six people and we had almost half a pizza left over when we were done.

Having tried Dominoes, Encore and most of the Pizza franchises I’d honestly say that Pizza Capers rocks worlds. Unlike Encore or Dominos they are not stingy with toppings and are by far a better quality pizza. There is a significant difference in quality even with the peperoni, toppings and sauces. Ok, I push you to get a bbq meatlovers pizza from Dominos and then order a bbq bonanza from Pizza Capers – side by side comparison you’ll be able to tell the difference. I think people in Mawson might be tightasses and not want to pay up for quality. Houso’s Houso’s Houso’s… 😛

Gotta agree. Encore was crap, at least down at Erindale, and while I have yet to try our new local Pizza Capers that replaced it, I have been to the one in Jamison which was certainly punching well above it’s weight in the takeaway pizza category. It’s not cheap, but it’s some damn good pizza.

Apparently a gym is going in where Zucchini Brothers used to be.

and as far as shop bought pizzas go, I’m surprised no one has mentioned Crust yet. Their Peri-Peri Chicken pizza is the best!

Their Conder store folded years ago, got turned into a Asian takeaway. Never saw anyone in there.

Surprising since the nearby Dominos puts out a sub-par product and the shop hasn’t been renovated since it opened in 96. Then again, people used to line up for their pizzas back in the days they operated from a rusting old bus on the abandoned Thawra Road remnants. Guess some people like it.

If you want to buy a pizza base, the small ones from Mosaics bakery, sold in all/most IGAs, are great. Only a one-person size, but make one for each person. Also really cheap (fur for around $5) and fresh.

I saw him in the Bay a couple of weeks ago…. Maybe he is opening a shop there??? He would have his work cut out for him though. Sams is possibly the best pizza i have had in my life.
