Doughboy is a small pizza shop with a wide variety of classic and unique pizza styles.
Our visit saw us dine in, however Doughboy are REALLY popular with the home delivery crowd. If you’re in the area, we’d suggest getting your pizza delivered.
Their menu (which is plastered top to bottom on a wall) is huge, with a few dozen pizza and side options. It made deciding a tough task, but we got there in the end.
Garlic bread twists with garlic aioli
I was excited as soon as these hit the table. Little cuts of dough are twisted, seasoned and then baked to create little crispy morsels of deliciousness. Dipping them in the creamy and delicate aioli is a must!
Spiced pumpkin – Roasted pumpkin, pine nuts, caramelised onion, feta, garlic, rocket
I love the combination of all these ingredients, so having them thrown onto a pizza had me sold. The sweet notes of the roast pumpkin and caramelised onion contrasted nicely with the salty hit of feta. I also enjoyed the scattering of pine nuts – like pockets of crunch to each bite.
Salsiccia & truffle oil – Free range pork and fennel sausage, baby spinach and Spanish onion, topped with roast garlic oil, drizzled with truffle oil and fresh parsley.
Doughboy’s pork and fennel sausage was fragrant and flavourful. The slight aniseed taste elevated the natural pork flavour without overpowering.
The truffle oil lacked that infamous earthy richness I was hoping for, instead holding a quieter place in the pizza’s overall flavour.
Judd – Chorizo, Kalamata olives, fetta, cherry tomato and chilli, topped with roast garlic oil and fresh basil
The Judd held its own against the other two pizzas we tried. I noticed a slight chilli kick, which worked nicely with the juicy chorizo. The olives and feta lent their own unique saltiness, cutting through the sweet cherry tomato slices. Adding roast garlic oil was a great touch, and I simply couldn’t get enough of the chorizo!
