Explore the many bests among Melbourne's pizza fraternity. Try the old-school goodness of family-friendly pizzerias in Lygon Street's Carlton, where Melbourne's love of pizza began. Join the locals queuing up for the world's best margheritas (so voted at Italy's pizza world championship) at 400 Gradi in Carlton North and try its Southbank sibling Gradi at Crown.
Go gourmet a little further north at i carusi, the pizzeria credited with starting the artisan pizza revolution, and follow its creator to Kaprica. Ride the artisan wave right across town: try Fitzroy and Prahran's Ladro, Carlton's D.O.C., and Northcote's Pizza Meine Leibe. Get a double dose of carbs at South Yarra's 48h Pizza e Gnocchi Bar, or take your super appetite to the CBD's +39. Vegans don't need to miss out either, with 100% vegan slices served up at Red Sparrow.
