Find some of the best pizza in the western world

Melbourne takes its pizza very seriously. “A Neapolitan-style disc has taken the place in our mind of what pizza should look like,” writes The Age’s Good Food section in an example of the city’s up-market pizza journalism, “specifically if it follows the specs laid down by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana – 48-hour risen base cooked in a wood-fired oven with strict DOC-approved toppings.” Good Food’s pizza correspondent notes the latest trends: “Middle Eastern pizza at Moor's Head, New York slices at Pizza Pizza Pizza, and Rome's pizza al taglio at Lievita” … “the entirely plant-based Red Sparrow” … the illustrious Grossi family’s dedicated pizza bar “serving pizza pockets they've dubbed pezzo.” According to Time Out the best Melbourne pizza has “light crusts, rich tomato bases, fresh toppings: that's amore, pizza-lovers.”
