Royal Derby Hotel: 446 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
What is it with Fitzroy and quality $5 pizzas? This is another awesome place to go if you’re out around this area. The Royal Derby itself is a cozy hangout with awesome walls and furniture (I love the actual ‘bed’ that they have there tbh) and this pizza is so worth it!
If you like Bimbo Deluxe’s $5 pizzas, you’d probably like this one too. The difference is, Royal Derby’s crust is thicker, not thin and crispy like Bimbo’s - and, the price is valid everyday, but you gotta buy a drink first! Reasonable, huh, well, I thought so too.
This little munchkin is the Margarita, with tomato, fior di latte and fresh basil. Mmm, writing out the toppings makes me want that slice in and around my mouth again and again (something Maya always say). Anyways, it’s fresh, every bite is filled with flavour and it doesn’t make you feel gross after (cause you know that feeling, everytime you finish a whole pizza by your-greedy-self, you get ‘thaaaat feeling’, ah yes, guilt mixed with satisfaction and irony?)
I don’t even know what fior de latte is but I’m guessing it’s the nice melty cheese that made my life better as I bite into this darling? Let me google that. Right. Fuck, it’s just a fancy name for mozzarella (but instead of water buffalo milk, they used cow’s). And may I just say, those basil leaves were absolute sex. Sex. SEX. SEX!!! (Agreeing with Zia, of course)
So yeah, another sweeeet $5 pizza joint for my fellow cheapfoodsluts, get on it!
