PERTH | Pretty Good Pizza is a new pizza joint by Jye Glaskin, Miles Hull and Matt Shiel, the trio behind Ruinbar next door. It’s a small space, just a bench and a few seats, with the kitchen and pizza oven taking up most of the space. Most of the people ordering pizza are enjoying it to-go, or next door. Pretty Good Pizza also doubles as the food offering for Ruinbar, and you can order at the bar.
Pizzas use a 48-hour slow ferment base, which results in a light, airy, crispy texture. There’s Neapolitan pizza in the pizza’s DNA, but these aren’t traditional Neapolitan pizzas. They’re a bit more loaded, a bit heavier, and that’s not a bad thing. They’re exactly what you want when enjoying a few beers with friends.
Music themed toppings range from traditional flavours to more creative combos. ‘Eazy Duz It’ is a winning combo of cherry tomato, mozzarella, oregano, basil. A crowd favourite, ‘C.R.E.A.M’, features a ricotta base with gorgonzola, mozzarella, pecorino, provolone, walnuts and black pepper. I’m a big fan of the ‘Can I Kick It’ – Italian sausage, pancetta, mozzarella, pecorino and onion.
Be sure to grab a small tub of the Pretty Good Dip. It’s an aioli designed to be perfect for dipping your pizza crusts in.
