Whether you’re taking a break between seeing the sights or refuelling after a big day, nothing beats pizza for fast, flavoursome and affordable feeds.

Ti Ama

The capital offers plenty of good pizza, but nowhere slings those slices with more style than Ti Ama. Their wood-fired pizza oven looks like a giant disco ball, the drinks list includes cocktails, spritzes and local craft beer on tap, and take-away boxes are hot pink. The pizzas live up to cool names like Notorious P.I.G. and Mush Hour, and can be tweaked for various dietary needs. Hungry for more? The mouth-watering menu also includes crust-dipper sauces, and desserts like their famous tiramisu.

In the little town of Cambridge, not far from Hobart, is a pizza restaurant and bar with a big reputation. In a space with understated contemporary style, Luma’s wood-fired oven produces superb thin-crust pizzas with tasty toppings such as pork and fennel sausage, prawns or char-grilled zucchini. There’s also pizzas for kids, gluten-free bases, vegan cheese and other bites beside pizza, including Barilla Bay oysters – so everyone’s happy!

Port Cygnet Cannery

A former apple-canning factory in the Huon Valley is now serving good food for good times. Port Cygnet Cannery is a welcoming space where the star attraction is a big black-tiled Italian pizza oven called Dante (after the 14th century poet who wrote Inferno). The menu’s small – because why mess with perfection like the spicy salami, red sauce, fennel and chilli combo, or a classic margherita? Many toppings are fresh from their own farm, and all pizzas are available gluten-free.

Note: Port Cygnet Cannery have announced their unfortunate closure from March 5, 2023. Get in quick before they close their doors and sample some of their food and pizza.

Ladybugs Pizza

Do you prefer lots of choice on the menu? Then head to Wynyard on the north-west coast, where Ladybugs Pizza offers many meaty, chicken, seafood, vegetarian and even vegan options. There are more than 30 to choose from, including a monthly special, and you can get them gluten-free. It’s not about quantity over quality though, because the hand-stretched dough, old-school pizza oven and lots of love make these pizzas some of the state’s best.

La Cantina

This classic Italian restaurant has been around for decades, so if you’re hankering for pizza in Launceston La Cantina is a good bet. Try a garlic or herb pizza entree, or launch straight into Italian classics like the Napoli or a folded calzone. Want to try one of their not-so-Italian pizzas but can’t decide which? Go for the Four Corners, which has Australian, Mexican, Hawaiian and vegetarian quarters. Coeliacs, you’re sorted too. There are also non-pizza options, from house-made pasta to tiramisu.

Want wine with that?

Pizza tastes better with vino, so don’t miss the chance to eat, sip and sigh with delight at wineries with pizza ovens. Like the east coast’s Devil’s Corner, whose new cellar door and deck offer gorgeous views with those wood-fired pizzas topped with local free-range meats and seasonal produce. Or Pooley winery in the the Coal River Valley. This historic property’s convict-built former coach house is a beautiful spot to relax with fine wine and gourmet slices. They have a second oven just for gluten-free pizzas.

The Tamar Valley Wine Centre isn’t a winery, but does offer drops from many of this celebrated region’s finest under one roof – and outside in the charming courtyard. So you’re spoilt for choice, from Clover Hill sparkling to Josef Chromy pinot, plus posh pizzas like goat’s cheese and pear.
