Looking to feast on some comfort food during this blustery winter? Odds are you are reaching for a slice of pizza. Whether you like it loaded, crispy, doughy or topped with crazy ingredients, you can get a taste of it – every night (except Tuesday) if you so desire – with Shannon Pizza.
Family owned since the ’80s, the team been working hard to get your pizza as good as it can be; maintaining the same style, the same quality and the same friendliness since its beginning. With twenty-nine different pizzas to choose from using the freshest of ingredients, their dough is made fresh on site daily, and your pizza can be delivered straight to your doorstep. All you have to do is decide whether you’re after a traditional style like the Aussie, Hawaiian and BBQ, or you want to branch out to the gourmet range with the Gourmet Feta or the Gourmet Chicken pesto.
One thing we love about Shannon Pizza is their fun-loving nature towards our favourite comfort food! Keeping things interesting throughout the year, the team introduce a special ‘pizza of the month’, that keeps customers coming back – and for good reason. Their current monthly special for June is enough to win us over with the new Chicken Parmi Pizza; complete with tomato sauce, cheese, English ham, chicken, garlic, oregano, bread crumbs, sauce and cheese on top. Need we say more?
Last month saw an epic take on the meat lovers with ‘The Butcher, covered in ham, salami, bacon, chicken, and meatballs, while some past highlights include the ‘Willy Wonka’, a colourful dessert pizza decorated in sprinkles, coco pops and coconut on a chocolate base; ‘Ring Burner’, a spicy pizza with Carolina Ripper chili which is not for the faint hearted, and the “Chicago Dog’ that instantly transports you to an American basketball game. Some of these feature flavours were loved so much that they made it to the permanent menu – see the ‘Italian Meatballs’ if you need more convincing.
If you’re still not sure what to have, take a leap of faith and warm your insides with their award-winning pizza Silvas Special featuring tomato, cheese, ham, salami, capsicum, onion, chilli, garlic, oregano, tomato sauce then cheese on top.
But it’s not just the fresh ingredients and delicious flavours that make Shannon Pizza a stand-out, they’ve also got their weekday deals, including the ‘hangover’ (also our personal favourite) which gets you one large pizza, a 1.25 litre drink and a small garlic pizza.
There’s also no stress if you can’t get there, as long as the phone order is in by 8:30pm you can get your favourite pizzas delivered to surrounding areas and they also have gluten free bases available.
Impossible to forget, the store is located in Geelong West and offers four different sizes for all you pizza lovers – you’ll be coming back for more all winter long.
