Top Best-Selling Pizzas for Restaurants

Jun 01, 2023Millie Ward

Pizzas have become an integral part of the Australian and New Zealand culinary experience, capturing the hearts and taste buds of people everywhere. Nowadays, pizza is an expected and popular item on any menu, from cafes and restaurants, to pubs and clubs. 

With easily customisable toppings and flavours, pizzas are a great option for venues wanting to offer quicker service, a wider range of menu items or even their own signature pizza recipes. 

See below for our best-selling and most crowd-pleasing pizzas that continue to reign supreme (no pun intended) on restaurant and foodservice menus and contribute to high levels of revenue and profit! 

Sliced Pepperoni and Red Onion Pizza

Classics That Always Sell Well 

Margherita Pizza

The Margherita is a timeless classic that you can't go without. Although it's a common pizza item on restaurant menus, it still sells well across the board. 

Often customers will just want something simple and familiar that they know they love and (especially if they have children or fussy eaters at the table), the traditional Margherita is a great option to have on your menu. 

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil.

Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni is the ultimate crowd-pleaser and debatably the most satisfying and familiar pizza option - a must-have on your menu! Pepperoni accounts for more than a third of pizzas ordered annually in the US and we know many Australians only have eyes for Pepperoni pizza, so you don't want to miss out on offering this one at your venue. 

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni.

Hawaiian Pizza 

There’s nothing not to love about Hawaiian pizza and (unless your customers are against pineapple on pizza), this is an excellent option to have on your menu. It's often the most popular and highest-selling pizza at our pizza events!

Plus Hawaiian pizza consistently has the most online search in all of NZ, proving that it's possibly the most popular pizza choice in New Zealand.

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, shaved ham, sliced pineapple. 

Meatlovers Pizza 

It's not a complete menu without a meatlovers pizza, especially for the Australian consumer! Meatlovers is the 4th most popular pizza in Australia (preceeded by Margherita, Pepperoni and Hawaiian and followed by BBQ Chicken) - you can't miss having the simple but classic Meatlovers pizza on your menu. 

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, ground beef, pepperoni, shaved ham, rasher bacon.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ chicken pizza is another one that's popular among Australians and New Zealanders, but isn't as common to find on restaurant menus as the Pepperoni and Margherita are. Set your venue apart with a deliciously saucy BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, red onion, shredded chicken, BBQ sauce.

Supreme Pizza

Loaded classic pizzas like the Supreme are go-to's for many customers, with Supreme pizzas ranking 6th in popularity in both Australia and New Zealand.

Supreme pizzas are perfect for those customers who want a hearty full meal - especially during the cooler months!

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, capsicum, mushrooms, pepperoni, ground beef, pineapple, rasher bacon. 

Dessert Pizza

If your venue offer a dessert menu, sweet dessert pizzas are an excellent way to make more profit and offer a more exciting and less common option. Our favourite go-to dessert pizza that always sells well is topped with Nutella and strawberries. You can't go wrong with this combo - make it nice and simple with our Plain Pizza Bases

Nutella, strawberries, mini marshmallows, shaved chocolate.

Creative Veggie Recipes  

6% of the Australian population is made up of vegans (the third highest percentage of vegans per capita in the world!). Additionally, about 12% of Australians are vegetarian, accounting for about 2.5 million people. As for New Zealand, at least 10% of their population are vegan and vegetarian, with a 19% increase in plant-based diets in the last two years. 

There's never been more demand for plant-based food in the foodservice industry than there is now!

Vegan and vegetarian customers will almost always check your menu for suitable options for them before visiting your venue. Not offering vegetarian or vegan options on your menu is a sure-fire way to eradicate this section of customers and impact your potential sales, so we've put together some exciting and fun veggie recipes that your customers will love...

Vegan Potato and Rosemary Pizza

This traditionally Italian Potato and Rosemary Pizza will definitely spark your customers' interest and get them excited - not many venues offer this authentic and delicious pizza recipe! Plus it's a unique vegan pizza recipe that requires only a few ingredients, keeping it simple for your kitchen and your customers. 

Sliced white potatoes, olive oil, fresh rosemary, vegan cheese.

Mushroom Truffle Pizza 

Truffles in the food space are on an unstoppable upwards trend and have increased in popularity by more than 19% in the last year. Simple pizza recipes that include fresh truffles or truffle oil, like this Mushroom Truffle Pizza are great vegetarian options to have on your menu. Easily make this pizza vegan by using vegan cheese instead of mozzarella. 

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, sliced mushrooms, truffle oil. 

Mediterranean Veggie Pizza

Vegetarians will always appreciate another option other than the usual Margherita that they can choose from on your menu. Loaded veggie pizzas, like our Mediterranean Veggie Pizza, are perfect options for veggie-lovers, whether they do or don't eat meat. They're guaranteed to sell on your menu! 

Pizza sauce, mozzarella, olives, artichokes, capsicum, feta, basil.
