I’m not a pizza fan. Don’t get me wrong, I like pizza, I actually don’t mind the ones from Dominos but I never ever crave it. Another graduation get together brought me to EST Pizzeria with a pretty big group – ordered 8 pizzas and 4 sides (ended up ordering some doubles). I got to try so many pizzas with it only costing $24 each – not too shabby aye?
The gnocchi was delicious – super cheesey covered gnocchi with some spinach thrown into the equation. However, the gnocchi was on the mushy side and after a while it got too cheesey to continue. The other side we got was the polenta – this was really really good, I cannot stress this enough. Soft tender lamb with a sour tang from the lemon/chimichurri sauce. Loved it.

The cottechino pizza was my favourite pizza that night! Fried cottechino sausage with a crunch of green apple and rocket – this surprised me with how fresh and flavoursome it was without being oily or salty at all.

The mushroom pizza was filled with mushrooms (duh) and melted cheese. This tasted alright but was a bit of a wallflower compared to it’s other brothers and sisters.
Mushroom – Assortment of Local Mushrooms and Porcini, Smoked Scamorza ($19.90)
Margherita was a lovely pizza with tomatoes, basil and bocconcini. Being a meat lover I felt it needed some meat in it – tip-toeing into the vegetarian world was a bit too drastic for me.

The prawn pizza was filled with fresh prawns, provolone, rocket and truffle. The earthy mushroom sprinkled throughout, mixed with the prawn definitely made it my second favourite pizza of the night :) We also had the potato pizza that had potato, gorgonzola, sage and parmesan. The potatoes looked like chips on the pizza – how cool! However, it was way too heavy handed with the salt – a bit of a shame as a potato pizza is such a good idea.
Thin crusted pizzas with fresh woodoven flavours – definitely a winner in my books. EST Pizzeria, you actually might have gotten through to this cold, frozen pizza heart – I might actually start craving you now.
