Hugos Manly

I crave the perfect pizza ... particularly after my recent experience in Sydney on the judging panel for Australia’s best pizza as part of the World Pizza Championships at Fine Foods Australia 2015 or perhaps it's a better and more informed appreciation of it. A pizza is not as simple as it appears.

At Hugos Manly their pizzas are visually arresting and generous in size. If I was blindfolded so as not to be tempted and quick to judge by the visual feast, the crust is thin, crispy, with a crunch of perfection. The flavours in this chilli prawn, roasted capsicum, tomato and salsa verde pizza interact energetically. And just as well the portions are finite otherwise you won’t know when to stop eating it.

My friend and I sat on the bench area facing Manly Beach which was stunning. This was a perfect weekend waterfront pizza dining experience for lunch. Crispy polenta chips with truffled parmesan tomatoes, and Sicilian olives, buffalo mozzarella & balsamic were delicious sides.

And what about dessert? The praise for the Sticky Date Pudding elegantly draped with butterscotch sauce was unanimous. While the dessert sounded sugary enough to make one's teeth ache, strangely enough it was only moderately sweet. Loved it.

I might also add there is a reason why Hugos Manly won the Best Pizza Restaurant & Catering Award 2015. Need I say more? Hats off.
