Melbourne Pizza Shop Claims Title Of 'Best Pizza in Oceania'

A Melbourne pizzeria has secretly been judged against 1000 others from across Italy and the globe.

400 Gradi has secured a place among the world's top 50 pizzeria's, reigning supreme over all other pizzerias in Oceania. 

The store has taken the title of 'Best Pizza in Oceania' at the second annual 50 Top Pizza Awards in Naples, Italy. However, this isn't the first time the pizzeria has been recognised.

Back in 2014, 400 Gradi's famous margherita pizza was crowned 'Best in the World' at the Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza (Pizza World Championship), beating 600 competitors worldwide.

"I am truly honoured, and almost speechless, to be honest," owner and founder Johnny Di Francesco said. "Never did I think that my beginnings in pizza as a twelve year old would lead me here."

400 Gradi wasn't the only Melbourne restaurant named as a finalist in the Oceania category, with Guy Grossi's Ombra also being commended. 

We don't know about you but we're booking a table right now. What pizza will you be ordering?
