2016 Judges’ Comments
Hidden in a small strip of shops in Sturt Street Ballarat is the cool Forge Pizzeria. Its an attractive and enjoyable full service Cafe with a great buzz and take-away, and an open wood creating a rustic vibe. The Forge place prides itself on a large selection of well thought out pizzas using quality ingredients. The Forge serve generous toppings and a crisp base. The unusual chocolate pizza with marshmallows and biscuit crumble was a hit, everything you expect tiramisu to be with a light texture, even layers and the perfect balance of flavours and not too sweet. And what better way to enjoy a pizza than washing it down with a local drop of wine, beer or cider? The drinks list has been well thought out – showcasing what the local region has to offer. Customer service was relaxed but efficient, helpful and well informed. Good quality coffee was served and the value for money was excellent. The Forge in Sturt Street is an exceptional pizzeria .
