Thursday, 9 February is World Pizza Day. And what a day it is. World Pizza Day is a day when everyone can come together and celebrate the amazing Italian dish that is perfect for every meal of the day.
Pizza purveyors from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and all other cities across Australia are putting on special deals for World Pizza Day, and you need to know about them.
This Thursday, February 9 2023, the outdoor pizza oven masters at Gozney will be giving away 1000 free pizza slices from the most iconic pizza joints across Sydney and Melbourne in celebration of World Pizza Day. To mark the occasion Gozney has partnered with The Grifter Brewing Company for the day so Aussies can enjoy the ultimate food and drink pairing of beer and pizza. All participating venues will be serving The Grifter Brewing Company’s brand-new pizza-inspired beer, Birra Quattro, which is launching on the day.
Pizzaiolos across Sydney including Dimitri’s (Darlinghurst, Sydney), Pizza Madre (Marrickville, Sydney) and Pizza Bros at The Grifter Brewing Co (Marrickville, Sydney) will each be giving away full pizzas to 50 lucky customers. Pizzeria and gin bar, City Oltra (Ultimo, Sydney) will be slinging 100 free square slices to hungry customers on World Pizza Day.
Down South, Melbourne locals can join in on the fun and grab 50 whole pizzas by visiting the pizza institution, Leonardo’s Pizza Palace (Carlton, Melbourne). On this one-day-only event, all venues will be serving free pizza from their World Pizza Day special menu on a “first in, first served” basis.
In addition, three lucky punters across participating venues will be served up a ”lucky slice’’, and win the ultimate backyard pizza party set up including Gozney’s cult classic portable pizza oven, Roccbox, and a slab of Birra Quattro (worth a whopping $891).
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
