We've passed by this little restaurant many times and Shawn would always say, "We need to give that place a go. I'm intrigued!" And finally, it happened last week, and we're now honestly fans of Swedish Pizza!
Opened only 8 months ago by two eager-to-please, humble brothers (in-law), Swedish Pizza's goal is to bring real Swedish-style pizza to Melbourne. It's been a labour of love for brother chef, with his 15 years experience making Swedish pizzas in his own shop back in Sweden. He's spent countless hours sourcing the right cheese, the right salami, and all the other correct ingredients here in Australia to maintain authenticity.
Their toppings, although used sparingly, are packed full of flavour. There's no need to overload a pizza with toppings when you use high quality and delicious ingredients. People forget that sometimes less is more; remember, these pizzas are bordering on gourmet. And while I'm talking about toppings, let me say it didn't go unnoticed how nicely they were all arranged, clearly done by a very proud chef.
I always like to get the Margherita ($11.00) whenever I first try a new pizza place. My thinking is, if they can make their basic pizza taste good, then there's hope for the rest. When my humongous "regular" was delivered to the table, it looked and tasted beautiful - and with it came a crunchy Swedish salad (sort of like coleslaw) that I spooned onto each slice. Just lovely. I think that salad comes with each pizza order by the way.
This little pizza eatery is also licensed - so muster up the courage to try something new. It will be delicious and you will be happy. Trust us, give them a go. :)
