Surf, sand, street art, collectibles and culinary delights – we found them all in South Dunedin! And so stoked we spotted one of our style icons, Sara Aspinall (designer of Company of Strangers), enjoying the sea air.
Mamma Mia Pizza Celebrates its 4th Birthday (74 Crawford Street, Dunedin)
There’s average pizza and there’s pizza to die for. Mamma Mia Pizza definitely comes in the to-die-for category – thin doughy bases, fresh top-quality local ingredients and cooked to perfection. Slovakian-born master pizza maker, Michal Rozenberg, started off as a newspaper photographer. Lucky for us, he changed direction and studied the art of pizza making in Italy and Austria. About seven years ago, he came to New Zealand, initially living in Wellington. He ended up in Dunedin by accident and intends to stay here. He’s taken his mobile wood-fired pizza oven all over the city (and beyond) and now also has a three month residency at the Otago Farmers Market.
