Napoli In Bocca. Haberfield

Surely there cannot be a person on earth who doesn't like pizza? Although with the advent of crusts overly stuffed with cheese and/or hotdogs (hotdog stuffed pizza crust is an abomination I tell you) and toppings that look like the contents of a compost bin my pizza consumption has dropped off...a lot.


I prefer my pizza simple and that's why the discovery of a place like Napoli In Bocca is a godsend.  Good, simple, honest pizza - just the way the Italian's intended.


I have Megan (from Veggies and Me) to thank for introducing me to this place - she swore it's the best pizza place in Sydney and I think she  may be right (though I'm sure that statement will meet with some contention).



When we came with Megan we ordered all manner of things, but I only had eyes for one pizza upon my return - Patata - a glorsiously flavoursome pizza with a simple topping of potatoes, rosemary, mozzarella, onions and  olive oil ($19.50). The pizza is just a little bit salty which makes it like crack cocaine to me. I ate this whole thing and I would've ordered a second one if I didn't think the waiters would think I'm a pig.



Tara choose to revist the Funghi - tomato, mozzarella and mushrooms ($18.50) - another simple pizza that is perfection, proving once again that less is more.



Napoli in Bocca is at 73 Dalhousie Street, Haberfield. Phone them on 9798 4096.

    1. I'd never even heard off until another blogger, Veggies + Me, took a group of us. I've been living on the moon I think.

    1. From memory the bowl had a mix of EVVO, balsamic + chili...to drizzle over the pizza...but I didn't want to change the taste of my lovely pizza.

  5. My favourite pizza joint this side of Italy. Yep, a bold statement and I stand by it. Love Napoli in Bocca!
    I 'discovered' it a good few years ago when I was very pregnant with my second. Four visits later (in four weeks) and I had finally got my pizza fill. (Let me tell you, squishing in a whole pizza on top of a 39 weeks pregnant belly is nothing to be sneezed at.)

    1. I have a 39 year old food baby in my tummy so I know what you mean! It's a great place...totally unheard of to me until recently. All that lost pizza time - what a shame.

  7. Those pizzas sound heavenly. I've never had potatoes on a pizza though it definitely looks like it's worth trying!

    1. It's well worth trying - so flavoursome! I think it's the rosemary that does it.

  9. Oh my, that splendid spud pizza has won my heart and has me drooling. And I agree, there ought to be some kind of law against stuffed crust pizza!

    1. Stuffed crust is gross. It should be illegal.
