Melt Pizza Bringing Napoli Style to Chapel St

Demo Image

Melt is one of Melbourne's newer pizza venues taking the city by storm and is a candidate for best pizza in Melbourne. The owners spent time being trained in Naples before embrking on their dream to make high quality Naples style pizza at affordable prices. the World Loves Melbourne journeyed to Melt with two hungry families eager to sample the pizza and to guage authenticity. Melt greatly impressed with its crispy pizza with quality ingredients and we discovered a consistently high quality across the 5 pizzas we ordered.


When you dine at Melt you are likely to be greeted by owners Dan and Elise or one of their friendly staff. Melt has an appealing menu where customers can order some Italian classics or even design their own custom made pizza. Personally I know it's great to customise, but their regular pizzas are simply sensational. We were invited to dine here but I didn't worry about that, happy to pay, as we rocked up with 2 families (in case anyone is wondering if this is a blogger post)...


Melt also surprised with this Superfood salad featuring quinoa, red rice, sweet potato, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seedds and almond flakes...


Melt's pizza making process is about cooking the pizza in a wood oven at 400 gradi (degrees). This means the pizza is ready in literally minutes - great for customers "on the go".

The San Daniele Prosciutto Pizza above hit the mark with crispy and delectable base and quality prosciutto, crushed tomato, and with pleasing amount of rocket on top. I always think a base is great if you wouldn't mind eating it on its own. The dough bases here are made fresh daily...


The kids scrambled for Margherita and were raving...


My favourite was the Italian sausage  - this pizza contained generous amounts of spicy Italian sausage and generous mozzarella. Often with sausage pizzas you are left with a small number of minute pices of sausage - but here it was about chunky sausage... 


Melt also served up a kick butt Hot Salami pizza with caramelised onion and olives. 


Back to the italian sausage...


Melt is an elongated fit out with tables along the wall or behind the large front window. The wood oven is inviting and for all to see, and the terracotta decor enhances the rustic feel. We managed to grab outside tables on Chapel St, and were thankful for heating. 

Inside Melt is a playful courtyard area and a private dining room that can be reserved.

Melt also surprised with its quality gelato by 7 Apples, including this Ferro Rocher beauty as well as Salted Caramel...


Melt proved to be a rewarding find for some of the best pizza in Melbourne at affordable prices. The staff are upbeat and helpful, and the owners chatty and passionate about pizza. The drinks menu was also excellent catering for wine and beer tastes (good to see other Italian beers along with Peroni). Highly recommended.
