Pizza Capers @ Spring Hill, Brisbane

Pizzas in Australia is like what roti canai is to Malaysians. It has a fan base so big that you get it at almost every corner. Pizza Capers has an outlet that is literally just outside my door step and we walk past it every day after work.


So one rainy day, we decided cooking at home had left us unimaginative and got the better of us, we popped in to take away a quick and cheap meal.


Surprise, surprise, the prices were not cheap as the Dominoes and Pizza Hut ads flying around the TV. However it seemed too much effort for me to walk out of the place and find an alternative dinner so gourmet pizza it was.


The prices were much more upmarket (so were the choices, i must admit).

There were a few tables outside but it is typically a take away store.

After taking close to half an hour, the pizza came out and we couldn't wait to dig in.

We opened the box and was surprised at the amount of ingredients on the pizza; scallops, prawns, mussels, squid and some fish too. One of the best seafood pizzas I had in a while.

Is it worth the price of AUD20 though? Hard to say but although it is not value for money, you definitely get what you pay for.

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. The benefit of the place is that they will deliver to my door step if i call and i know it will be fresh since they are a stone throw away from me. They call themselves a gourmet kitchen and I think they do deliver on their promise, if only it was that tad cheaper.

That's a lot of mussels and big ones! Loves scallops too!

I think if you are earning AUD, the price is consider reasonable wor.

I dont think you can even compare Pizza Capers to the likes of Pizza Hut and Dominos... Pizza Capers is just SOOOOOOOOOOO much better.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

brisbanedevoured: thats what i found out in the end!

minchow: it looks thick but it was pretty thin..1 thickness size only.

the pizza looked so good and the ingredients is expensive enough to warrant that AUD20. I think it's worth it! Don't convert... haha

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

eiling: yeah slowly slowly, bad habits do die hard some times.

I wouldn't even touch the seafood pizza from pizza hut/dominos here. Yours looks damn nice!

Gastronomy Gal said...

I definitely think $20 is acceptable for an awesome pizza- I love Il Posto and Beccofino for more traditional style. This pizza looks like it has lots of seafood though!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

gastronomy gal: woo, must try what u recommended, since its been a while since we had good pizza.

bangsarbabe: haha dont think theres any natural seafood, prob everything artificial!

I've been looking at this sentence for 30 mins and still don't get it.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

limo: well to me value for money = getting more than what you are paying for i.e. 30 dollars worth of food for 20 dollars. its all about perception. so for this pizza, i didnt think it was value for money but you are not short changed either, you get it now?

Limo said...

I got it ! Thank you. :-)
