The World's Best Pizza is on the Sunshine Coast

No it’s not Naples or even New York. Mooloolaba on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is generally known for having one of the best beaches in Australia but take a walk along the dining strip of Mooloolaba’s colourful Esplanade and you’ll come across Augello’s Ristorante & Pizzeria and… the World’s Best Pizza!

The restaurant has been a regular winner at the Global Pizza Challenge, picking up awards for Best Pizza in Australia in 2014, ’16 and ’17 as well as the ‘Best Pizza on the Globe’ in 2012 and 2010.

So which of the pizza are the big winners?

In 2014 it was the Duck Sushizza that won ‘World’s Best Pizza’ with a rice base, teriyaki sauce, duck, parmesan cheese, sprouts salad, teriyaki aioli and orange segments. Sounds amazing but we tried Augello’s first big claim to fame with their 2010 world-beater, the Hot Smoked Salmon gourmet pizza. This absolutely delicious combination of hot smoked salmon (much tastier than the normal smoked salmon), dill and parmesan infused dough, salsa verde, baby spinach, onion jam, caper lemon juice aioli and salmon caviar is simply fabulous.

If you love Italian food and especially pizza, Augello’s impressive list of award-winning gourmet offerings are definitely worth trying. And what a way to round off a perfect day on the beach at Mooloolaba on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
