Kiwis Didn’t fall in love with Pizza Until 1970s..

We can say that New Zealand has some of the best pizza in the world, and with these toppings, it’s a no-brainer.

It’s hard to imagine, but Kiwis once thought of pizza as “exotic” food. That all changed in 1974 when an individual opened the first Pizza restaurant here. Home delivery followed in the 1980s, eventually leading to all dine-in Pizza outlets closing for good in 2016.

New Zealand and pizza are two things that probably don’t sound as though they’d make a likely pair. Still, over the last five decades or so, that statement has been woefully proven wrong. Pizza is very much part of New Zealand takeaway, and pizza is a well-loved favourite by locals and visitors alike. Flames Pizza has grabbed the trust of many kiwi’s residing in Auckland by producing their own unique and delicious recipes for pizza’s which blend the local taste buds. However, one style is still overwhelmingly popular: Traditional Italian-style.
