Margherita Pizza @ Vacanza Pizzeria, Surry Hills - 26 July 2013

We stumbled on Vacanza Pizzeria (414 Bourke St, Surry Hills) by chance after we picked up some goodies from Bourke St Bakery. My wife thought the place looked interesting so we decided to give it a go. We popped in, were greeted by a friendly Italian waitress and taken to our table. All we wanted today was the "Brandi" Bufalina Margherita pizza. Marghherita is a standard order for us at pizzerias as we just love the simple, yet tasty combination of tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. And this pizza was no different. Very tasty!

We were very pleasantly surprised with how good this pizza was. It was pretty damn good, if I must say! The margherita pizza had San Marzano tomatoes, Compania Garofalo buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. The pizza base was a winner. It was so wonderfully thin and crispy. What amazed me was how the crust was able to stay so crisp and not become soggy from the smattering of tomatoes and chunks of buffalo mozzarella. The only problem was that it was extremely dark inside. So dark that I couldn’t tell whether I had made a mess on myself or not. For the record, I did drop some cheese on my shirt :S
Based on this brief experience, Vacanza Pizzeria appears to be another gem in an already vibrant Surry Hills dining scene. I would definitely like to come back soon and try some of their other pizzas.
