Pizza has got to be one of our favourite food groups. And a dish that we take very, very seriously.
Thankfully, we’re not alone in our quest for the best pizza on the Sunshine Coast. In fact, two mates have taken it so seriously they’ve decided to open their own pizzeria—say a big hello to Noosa’s brand new Somedays Pizza.
Opening softly a couple of weeks ago, Somedays Pizza is the creation of Nathan Ramsay and Shane Newton; two guys who know hospitality’s ropes well and wanted to inject something a little different into the Sunshine Coast’s pizza scene.
With so many awesome options available across the region, Nathan and Shane knew they had to offer something totally unique to their new Noosa pizza joint. And so, in the months before opening, prior to COVID-19 striking down, they set about eating their way around South East Queensland’s and Northern NSW’s top pizza spots. Slice by slice, they narrowed down what they did and didn’t want from their pizzas, before teaming up with award-winning pizza consultant, Gianluca Donzelli, to create the perfect Somedays pizza.
So, what can you expect? Getting the dough right was priority, so you’ll appreciate the organic stone milled base—a blend of white and wholemeal flour—and a crust that is an enticing combination of crispy, airy and light. Slightly larger than your average size and a bit more rustic in presentation, each pizza is generously topped with sustainably, and in most cases locally, grown produce, so you’ll be tasting the best of everything. The icing on the cake, or should we say pizza, is the leopard charring that can only come from being wood-fired. Yum!
On the Somedays menu, you’ll find 10 hard-to-choose-between pizzas—broken into red and white base sections. If tomato bases are your thing, try The Queen; a margherita pizza you’ll forever be comparing others to. Or, go the Somedays, topped with local free-range pork sausage, shaved fennel, red onion, fresh herbs and a creamy provolone picante. For a blonde, a la white base, The Gambero loaded with Mooloolaba prawns is a winner, as is the All Cheese, featuring our favourite Woombye Ash Brie combined with vintage cheddar, golden rind parmesan, walnuts and local honeycomb.
There’s also a handful of share plates, including the wood-fired beets with goats curd, hazelnuts, fennel, citrus and pineapple kombucha, where we totally recommend you start your night, alongside a glass of chilled biodynamic wine—the drinks list here is natural but mighty.
In terms of fit-out, no box has been left unticked. A complete renovation of what was once a takeaway Pizza Hut store in Noosa Junction means you won’t recognise it now. Brick walls with plaster falling off, 100-year-old tin chairs and dark stained timber throughout give this space a rustic Italian farmhouse feel, and if you can overcome your need to people-watch from the picnic tables out front, you’ll love cosying up inside.
Somedays Pizza is now open seven days a week for dine-in from 5pm until late. And, if you miss out on a table or just want to feast at home, you can opt for takeaway, Monday to Thursday between 5pm and 6pm.
