One of three pizza shops in Auburn Village, Pizza Art offers the best pizza in the Hawthorn/ Camberwell area


Why you’d need three pizza outlets in Auburn Village has always had been confused. There’s no convenience store, and yet magically there’s three pizza outlets. And here’s why it gets better: two of them are side by side.

Pizza Art is one of the three, and although like the others it doesn’t really offer much in the way of in house dining, it’s become my local favorite.

The menu offers a wide variety of pizzas, from the standard topping range through to “gourmet pizzas” that include tandoori, pepper chicken, and some other more exotic combinations.

We regularly order a small ham and pineapple (having an eight year old son dictates this) and either the pepper chicken or the tandoori.

The crust is freshly made, crisp, and somewhere between a traditional thin and thick crust.

The toppings and sauce mix hit the spot like neither of their competitors do. Succulent, ample, rich and inviting. Like most Melbourne pizza shops they do tend to use processed ham (what is that about Melbourne???) but you can forgive that given the way the pizzas taste.

I’d note that this isn’t gourmet pizza as you’d get at a high end outlet, and for that reason we’re not giving it 5 stars, but for affordability, speed and taste, I can’t recommend Pizza Art enough.

4 stars out of 5

For: low price, great taste, quick to make them
Against: it’s probably fattening 🙂
