It has been in the hands of Cameron Austin and his partner Lowarna Hughes for the last 12 months.

"It's been good, it's definitely getting much more busy,” Mr Cameron said.

"It's been challenging with the little one as well.”

Mr Cameron was referring to their 10 month old daughter Summer who arrived shortly after the couple took over the shop.

"I was heavily pregnant when we opened,” Ms Hughes said.

Favourite pizzas include The Big Meaty, their vegan pizza and Mr Works.

"(We feel) pretty stoked,” Mr Cameron said.
