Proof Pizza + Wine
Located in APW, Proof Pizza + Wine is possibly the best new pizza restaurant in town. It’s an intimate space spread over two floors – a few tables and bar seating downstairs facing the proper Italian wood-fired pizza ovens as well as a loft with booths perfect for families. One wall is covered with shelves of wine available by the glass, bottle or carafe for parents.
Pizzas are available with classic or gourmet toppings – like Taleggio cheese and Nduja sausage (spreadable spicy salami from the Calabria) – paired with atypical ingredients like pumpkin, yoghurt and cauliflower. What really sets them apart is the dough used for the base – crispy and slightly charred on the outside, pillowy soft on the inside. Our kids loved the classic Margherita and the Carne with its generous portions of pancetta and salami, proclaiming it ‘so much better than Pizza Hut’ – high praise indeed! Another favourite was the calzone stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella, pesto and salami melted into a divine hot mess encased in the wonderful pizza dough.
The eight-inch pizzas are perfect for one, while 12-inch easily feeds two adults or three kids.
