So this is exciting news for Gold Coasters; beloved British chef Jamie Oliver has opened his very first Australian pizzeria right here in our pretty city on Saturday 16th November and we, quite obviously, love both pizza and the man himself so this madeus very happy.
Aptly titled, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria, the menu is inspired by Jamie’s many visits to Italy (lucky him) and featuring simple, tasty eats made with exceptional produce at a great price.
What’s not to love?
The authentic, artisan dough is tossed by hand and cooked in specialty ovens to create world-famous pizzas that are loved the world over. With venues in Dubai, Portugal and Hungary, we’re joining quite the international lineup.
The focus is on classic Italian flavours and a passion for food and entertaining which are things we also love very much.
If the overseas menus are anything to go by, we can expect pizzas topped with Chicken alla Diavola, meatballs, Neapolitan-style, the classic pepperoni (YUM), a vegetarian goodie and of course, specialty garlic bread unlike any other.
If we’re lucky, there may also be appetizers along the lines of crispy squid and maybe a pasta or two in case pizzas aren’t enough to fill your belly.
Fresh, delicious salads and delightful desserts are also on the menu so the next time you’re shopping up an absolute storm at Pacific Fair you can also look forward to an epic Italian feast to recharge the batteries.
Excitingly, Jamie is somewhat of a revolutionary in the food industry and the local newbie will see new recipes and concepts along with tasty and affordable food, exceptional service and a good time atmosphere.
Jamie’s Oliver’s Pizzeria is now open on the Gold Coast, so get yourself down there asap!
