The mighty margherita is an authentic Italian classic and a favourite all around the world so we couldn't possibly exclude it from this list. A tasty pizza with a tomato base and cheese topping is simple yet always delivers on taste.

2. Formaggio - PINZA!
Calling all cheese lovers – the Formaggio is perfect for you!

This classic topping will never steer you wrong (how can you go wrong with cheese?!), so make your next meal a memorable one with the formaggio.
3. Calzone - Matto
The Calzone is a unique type of pizza as it is folded in half rather than flat, like the pizzas we are used to. They are often stuffed with goodies such as salami, mozzarella, ham, parmesan and so much more. The Calzone served over at MATTO is a wonderfully cheesy one stuffed with ricotta cheese, mozzarella, beef salami, tomato and mushrooms. Each bite is a delicious one so be sure not to miss out on this Italian classic.
