DOC PIZZA AND MOZZARELLA BAR: Busy, vibrant restaurant with 2 floors (but dim light for photos) but awesome vibes and authentic, reasonably priced Italian pizzas. Great chance to hang out with a large group to share and sample a huge variety of their pizzas. Everything in general had a generous amount of topping, with stringy melted cheese of fine quality and a gorgeous, crispy base to die for. The Calzone was definitely the highlight – one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had for sure.
Salumi Board with Buffalo Mozzarella – $27.9
The good fat: Lovely, cured meats but unfortunately I’m not connoisseur enough to really distinguish nor appreciate the quality and texture of the flavours.
The bad fat: Devoured this in two seconds.. the meat was a little on the sparse side as was the cheese. To be honest, not a huge fan of buffalo cheese as it’s has a bit of a watery/bland undertone which at times works well with the saltiness of the meats though.
Calzone (Mozzarella, Fresh Ricotta, Spinach, Double Smoked Leg Ham and Grated Reggiano) – $20.9
The good fat: My favourite one of the night! I loved how it came in a folded version, with delicious, crunchy pastry on the outside enveloping the explosion of melted ricotta and mozzarella, with the saltiness of the smoked ham inside. Amazing fusion of flavours to start off the night.
The bad fat: Nothing!
Pizza San Daniele (San Marzano Tomato, fresh D.O.P Buffalo Mozzarella, D.O.P. San Daniele Prosciutto) – $24.9
The saltiness of the prosciutto went great with the subtleness of the Buffalo mozzarella… even though everyone goes crazy about it I’m not the biggest fan of it, even on the pizza.
Pizza Tiger Prawns (San Marzano Tomato, Tiger Prawns, Mozzarella, Endive, Fresh Chilli) – $24.9
I really enjoyed the spicy kick of flavours on this pizza. The chilli wasn’t too overpowering but it gave a nice contrast to everything else. The endives gave it a nice, smooth texture but the prawns were unfortunately a little overcooked.
Pizza Salsiccia (DOC Deli’s Pork Sausage, Crema di Broccoli, Mozzarella) – $20.9
Really interesting to see crema di broccoli on pizza! Unfortunately, this one was a little bland as the pork sausage also didn’t really contribute any of the much needed saltiness. The crema was quite flavourless and couldn’t really taste the subtleties of a broccoli undertone.
Pizza Napoletana (San Marzano Tomato, Mozzarella, Anchovies, Olive) – $19.9
Great choice for those who are anchovies and olive fans! This pizza was super salty and the simplicity of the elements went well with the mozzarella – but for those who don’t enjoy an explosion of pure salt in your mouth please stay away.
SHOULD YOU GET FAT HERE?
YES – I’m coming back for the Calzone for sure!
