The Italians invented it, the Americans tried to perfect it and the whole world loves it – yep you’ve guessed it, we’re talking about pizza! There are lots of ‘Italian’ restaurants dotted throughout New Zealand that boast authentic Italian Pizza or the finest New York style pizzas, so we scoured the streets to grab a slice (or two or three) of the best of the best and here’s what we came up with!
