‘Paging all vegans. Paging all vegans. Your vegan Nutella pizza is waiting for you at the clinic.’ Just one of the many medical-inspired Instagram posts from the recently-ish opened The Pizza Doctor in Brunswick. They’re vegan friendly and gluten free friendly too! I haven’t had the vegan Nutella pizza yet but the two pizzas I have had were pretty good and I’ll be back to try more. There’s also vegan-option arancini, potato croquets, eggplant chips and a few focaccia to choose from. Lots more to try on my future visits. The pizzas are more a medium size, and the box measures 26cm.
Shown up top there is the pumpkin leek pizza ($16 including the $2 vegan option charge). I ordered this at the ‘clinic’ and ate it outside. There’s a bench inside the clinic which is the waiting area, but there are two two-seater tables outside on the footpath.
Previously I’d ordered the vegan salami pizza for home delivery. The bases are thin, and nice and crispy on the bottom, more so for the pumpkin leek pizza which I ate as soon as it was out of the woodfire oven. I enjoyed both and it’s always good to see vegan options in new establishments, serving up pizza to people who may be egg or dairy free as well as vegan. The staff were lovely too, always a bonus!
The Pizza Doctor is in the same building where the pink cupcake bakery used to be, on the 58 West Coburg tram line right near Brunswick Road.
You can order online as well for home delivery, or pick up your order in person.
