The Pizza Palace

Whilst on a recent short break to Perth, I was lucky enough to chose an apartment in East Fremantle that was renowned for having the best wood fired pizzas in Perth, and only a short stroll from my front door.

Their menu consisted of chicken marinated in garlic, honey, soy & chilli, tossed sesame seeds, mature cheddar, shallots and chives. Or you could try chilli coconut prawns, served with fresh rocket. Or even calzone filled with ricotta, mushroom, spinach and basil - chef's recommendation is to add chicken, pepperoni or pumpkin. Just to name a few. There are over 20 mouth watering pizzas to chose from. You can find these guys at 133 George St East Fremantle WA. Remember Fremantle was where the Aussies "stole" the coveted Americas Cup with their controversial "winged keel" back in 1983. An event we can never forget, simply because the Cup hasn't been back since!
The girls opted for the chicken of course, but I preferred something a little more grown up if this Pizza Palace was as good as people told me.
I chose the Smoked salmon, capers, red onion, avocado and topped with fresh rocket and sour cream.
My copycat creation doesn't look quite the same, but the flavour was very similar.

Ready for the oven.

Where is that food stylist and professional photographer when you need them?

This is my entry for this Weekend Herb Blogging event, hosted by Susan at Food Blogga. Check out the size of that lobster on her blog! I'm green with envy

Hi Pam! Thanks for sharing such a sophisticated pizza and lovely entry for WHB! And I could just hug you for providing the address of the pizzeria. Now, I'll have to get on Southwest's site to check the prices of flights. (Pizza is my weakness; what can I say?)

This looks beautiful and delicious! Definately some interesting sounding pizzas!

Wow, what a great combination of ingredients. Did you plan it that way to stay right by a famous pizza place. Good planning I'd say!

Hi Susan, Jenndz, and Kalyn,
Thanks for your comments. I can honestly say it was a sheer fluke that I chose this apartment, and finding this little gem right on the corner only about 300 metres away was a real bonus. My nephew, who is a "local". would often drive miles from his home on the opposite side of Perth to taste these pizzas. Hopefully I can work my way through their menu, and try them all eventually.
