Local foodies are in for a supreme treat this month, as Australia’s leading online food delivery service Menulog partners with The Pizza Box, to create ‘The Geelongest Pizza’.
The people of Geelong voted and Menulog listened, with Supreme dubbed the city’s favourite pizza topping in an August poll. The two-metre Geelongest Pizza featuring Geelong’s most popular toppings will be available exclusively via the Menulog website and app from today.
Menulog spokesperson, Rory Murphy said: “Geelong is booming when it comes to online food delivery so what better way to celebrate than by supersizing Geelong’s favourite cuisine. We’re always looking for creative ways to work with our local restaurant partners to provide customers with new and exciting foodie experiences.
“We crowd-sourced Geelong’s favourite flavours and then worked with local-favourite, The Pizza Box, to create the ultimate meal for Geelong residents to share. With pizza making up more than a third of all our deliveries in the area, we think Geelong’s longest-ever pizza will be a hit”
Kali Hovey, owner of The Pizza Box, said: “We had a great time working with Menulog to create this Geelong first! Food delivery has always been a large part of our business and being a long-standing partner with Menulog has helped us to continue to grow.
“It has certainly been an interesting challenge working out how to cook and deliver a two-metre pizza! We’ve designed new pans, new pizza boxes and are using new delivery methods – a two-metre pizza is a bit big for a bike!” said Ms Hovey.
As part of the launch, Menulog will deliver Geelongest Pizzas to Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds Campus next Wednesday 23 August from 11am to 3pm for students to enjoy a free slice! Local pizza lovers can look out for reviews of the unique pizza by following #menulog and #geelongestpizza.
Menulog’s customer research found pizza was the most popular cuisine in Geelong, followed by Thai and Indian. Grilled foods such as ribs and burgers are on the rise in Geelong.
How to get your hands on The Geelongest Pizza: The Geelongest Pizza will be available from The Pizza Box until the end of August. Place your order via the Menulog app or at www.menulog.com.au/the-pizza-box-geelong.
