WHEN people move to a new area, one of the first things they look for is a good pizza place.

On the Northern Rivers our readers know where the best pizza is as voted in our poll from last Friday night.

1. Mr Mozzarrella (40 votes)

Winning by a huge margin was the independently owned Mr Mozzarrella.

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.

"Especially after 12 months.”

They are about to have a new menu come out including lamb, mustard chicken and all made with fresh, local ingredients.

3. Raamons Pizza (12 votes)
