Stromboli – Pizza Land

A staple of Geelong dining over the past 30 years has been Pizza Land, according to their website, they were the first shop to “bring Turkish breads and dips to the Geelong region.” So you know they are dedicated to serving customers the best food.

They’ve got everything you’d ever want in a Pizza Shop – a bunch of tasty desserts like Gelato, Baklava and Pancakes, and even are licensed too, so you can enjoy a glass of red over your Stromboli.

Quirky Pizza Choice: Stromboli It’s not really a different flavour of Pizza, but a type that you can’t really find anywhere else. It’s a type of Pizza Scroll – those ones that you usually get for a couple of bucks in the freezer at Coles. But this is freshly made, and you can choose what flavour – American, Aussie, they’ve got it all.

Crispy Pork Belly Pizza – Pizza Bar

A staple of the Geelong West food scene, Pizza Bar has been dishing out amazing Italian-style pizzas for many years on the popular Pakington Street strip, with plans to open another venue in Belmont in the not-so-distant future.

Old school and unique, here the pizzas have a thin, light base with crisp edges and authentic toppings such as mozzarella, bocconcini, chilli, shaved prosciutto, San Marzano tomato, Sopressa salami, olives and fior de latte.

Quirky Pizza Choice: Crispy Pork Belly Pizza So it’s not the healthiest, the leanest or even close to being the cleanest thing you can eat, but make no mistake, pork belly is gob-smackingly delicious and this place has upped the ante by putting it on a pizza! This gem is rounded out with plum jam, cabbage salad and garlic. They’ve also got a pretty quirky but incredibly delicious braised lamb shoulder, tomato, peas, sweet onion, and parmigiano pizza if you feel like going all out.
