At Pizza Religion, located on Tooronga Road in Hawthorn East, they take pizza very seriously. A succinct menu offers crispy based varieties with interesting, well balanced toppings. The classics are well represented however creative credit is due for options such as sherry-braised beef cheek and BBQ corn and chorizo. The modern space features industrial exposed brick walls and rustic wooden benches; chic, but casual, and definitely family friendly.

Pizza may well become the new religion if this gourmet pizza bar has anything to do with it. Already rapidly garnering a growing number of devotees for its doughy delights, Pizza Religion takes its pizza seriously. However its philosophy also keeps things simple, using well chosen combinations and quality ingredients to create fresh and flavoursome creations. Before opening Pizza Religion with fellow chef Matthew Hunter, co-owner Kris Bailey was the creator of the ‘Best Pizza in Australia 2008’, going on to become a finalist at the World Pizza Titles in 2009. They keep the faith here by turning out these tasty discs with speed and cheerfulness, and there is limited seating available with plans to extend further in the near future.

A succinct menu offers thin and crispy bases with gluten free options, and interesting, well balanced toppings. From simple and elegant classics such as a margherita or prosciutto pizza through to more inventive variations like the orange and fennel cured salmon with fried capers, caramelised Spanish onion and rocket. A pepperoni pizza is enlivened with goat’s cheese and fresh mint, while vegetarians will be hard pressed to choose between roasted pumpkin with sage, gorgonzola and pine nuts, or zucchini, chilli, ricotta, lemon and mint. The two chefs mix it up with regular specials that may include a chilli prawn pizza with ricotta, garden peas and salsa verde, while kids can enjoy a mini pizza for half price.
