Hell Pizza - Heaven Sent!

So we have a mortgage and basically life is crap now – we are constantly broke and a real splurge for us (without a month of saving up) is pizza night. Did I also mention that we have moved to the Western Suburbs… we have the BIG 4 – KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Hungry Jacks – but nothing nice. No little independent “Mom & Pop” Restaurants, Pizza places or decent Asian food. UNTIL Hell Pizza blasted into Boganville in it’s big V8 hearse and showed these guys the way pizza was meant to taste. And it is incredible.

The bases are never soggy and they only have one kind – a mid range between Deep Pan and Thin & Crispy that holds the toppings well. The toppings are all “real” – no tinned or weird processed stuff here, and they actually taste like the menu says!

Hubby is a big fan of “Lust” which is the Meatlovers Special; while I prefer the “Nemesis” the Supreme version complete with Kalamata Olives and Fetta. They also do Vegan pizzas and Gluten Free Bases which is perfect for when our friends the Hippies come over. (Their favourite is the "Sinister" - Gluten free base with refried beans, avocado, salsa, tomato and jalapeno's) They are a taste sensation and we are so glad they moved to our suburb!

Verdict: If you love pizza that has a crispy, non-soggy base, real ingredients that haven’t come from Planet Plastic and want it delivered in a V8 Hearse? Hell Pizza is for you my friend!

My Recommendations: The Garlic bread puts every other pizza joint to shame, it is a real baguette with real butter and real garlic – who knew that would work so much better? The Pizzas are all fantastic – and I’ve tried most of them. The pastas are okay but nothing to write home about, and if I wanted a salad – I’d make it myself. They also have Dessert pizza but I keep forgetting to order one to try... will have to put it on my list of things to do!
