Pizza Shed

If you’re a pizza lover, Pizza Shed is the place to be. The establishment’s superb pizza stands out because of its dough, which is left to rise for 48 hours before being hand-stretched and wood-fired.

You can expect to enjoy a delicious leopard-spotted charred crust and unbelievably yummy toppings. Tasty vegan options are also available. There are outlets in Observatory and on Bree Street.
