About - Why we're different to the average pizzeria - The Italian Bar Pizza

About Us

At The Italian Bar Pizza we do things a little differently compared to your average pizzeria…

We’re passionate about serving wholesome pizza and therefore put a lot of love, care and energy into making ours the most nutritious that it can be.

A lot of pizzerias use pizza flour imported from Italy. We did too when we opened in 2012 but recently swapped to locally produced organic flour. Why? It’s pretty simple. Flour is food and fresh food is always best.

The most important piece of the puzzle is how we raise our dough. It’s fermented for three days with a starter that we raise ourselves. It pre digests gluten and starch, consequently resulting in a lighter, easy to digest pizza.

Our ethos extends to our wine list which is mostly organic, biodynamic & low intervention. Why? Because we feel better about drinking wine that is chemical free and hasn’t been filtered.

We want everyone at our table to enjoy what we have to offer. It’s why we’re one of the few North Shore Italian restaurants that serves gluten free pizza bases and vegan toppings.
