Overview

Pizzaperta

Using only artisan and unrefined stoneground flours imported from Italy, Pizzaperta specialises in humble Italian street food, done with passion and flair. And with an espresso martini in hand, it’s the perfect place to watch the world float by.

“All of our pizze are made with Stoneground Mulino Quaglia “Petra” Flours. Our dough is leavened naturally a minimum of 24 hours for taste and digestibility. We only use extra virgin olive oil.” - Stefano Manfredi.

 

Our Flavours

THE PERFECT PIZZA

LEARN TO MAKE THE PERFECT PIZZA.

Molino Quaglia ‘Petra’ flours

Pizzaperta’s dough is made from unrefined stoneground Molino Quaglia ‘Petra’ flours imported from Italy. The dough is matured and then leavened naturally for a minimum of 24 hours using a classic biga method, resulting in a more easily digested dough. Pizzaperta is also experimenting with sprouted grains, such as germinated chickpeas and buckwheat, adding them to the dough to enhance the flavour and texture of the pizza base.

Wood Fired Oven

Each pizza is designed with simple flavours to complement the handcrafted pizza base, cooked to perfection in the Stefano Ferrara M130 wood-burning oven direct from Naples.

Our Pizza Box

All menu items, including sides, salads and desserts will be served in custom-made, biodegradable Pizzaperta takeaway boxes and bags offering the casual and communal values of Italian street food.

'We are the first ones in Australia to use the GreenBox and it is very clever in the way it is made, because it means people can sit down or take their food away and then turn the box into a little leftovers container. And our pizza tastes really good reheated, so that’s a bonus.' - Stefano Manfredi

Fresh Produce

The menu will change seasonally and topping ingredients will be sourced locally from the best fresh produce suppliers.

Open-air Piazza

The open-air piazza-style Pizzaperta is the fusion of a traditional pizzeria and the quality and experience that Stefano Manfredi brings.
