Little Caesar @ Perth, Australia
When you step inside a restaurant that is the winner of the World Champion Pizza Maker, there is no question of a doubt, one would feel almost intimidated, consuming food that are meant for demigods, or at least fit for the greatest emperor Caesar. So we were a bit surprised to say the least at how humble and cosy this place is, which is good news for us mere mortals, and travelers at that.

Tucked at Leerville, Perth. Our good friends, Lawrence and Michelle brought us to this champion restaurant and school us a thing or two about pizza. And we realized how little we know about one of our favourite food.
Greek Island Prawn Pizza AUD16.50
First up, we had the Greek Island Prawn Pizza ($16.50). Quite different from Italian styled pizza that we've grown accustomed to, first of all, visually you'll notice that the sauces are more cream based, of course, some of us are familiar with cream based pizza sauce, but here's the next thing that blew our taste buds - the texture of the crust. Almost a cross between bread and pie crust, barely resembling either, yet all at the same time.
The harmony that the base makes with the topping is almost flawless like a well practiced choir, slightly sweet crust with that thick and lightly creamy sauce, with the savory and succulent prawn, it is a sensation never felt before.
Greek Lamb Pizza AUD16.50
The next pizza is the Greek Lamb pizza($16.50). One would be reminded of gyro or Turkish Kebab. Grilled free range lamb gives out a nice sweet juicy taste, while topped with strained yogurt, slightly sweet and savory and oh-so-creamy. Try hard to hold back those tears as you marvel how good the proprietors combine the exotic flavors of Turkey and Italy.
Next up is the Cashew Chicken($16.50). Again the absence of tomato based sauce is not really missed here, as the chicken bathes is a cream sauce filled with mushroom and cashews. The soft bite and firm chicken is a nice texture until its made even climatic with added crunch from the roasted cashew.
Next up, we had a go at sweet pizzas for dessert. Black forest, is a name we usually associate with cakes. But today we'll have a cake of a different kind. Sinful amount of chocolate covers a thick layer on top. Drizzled with a generous amount of icing sugar and topped with 2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream, plus pouring of hot cherry syrup. That description in itself with cancel of whatever New years resolution pertaining to loosing weight that you've written down. The chocolate is so rich and sweet is a sinful indulgence I'd tolerate hell for. With the hot and cold combination, cold being the vanilla ice cream, your taste buds almost sends a franzied signal to your brain. In the end its good just to shut down and lie back, and forget the trouble of the world. We truly believe feeding this to all warlods in the world will bring eternal peace on earth.
Last but not least, a word of great appreciation to Lawrence and Michelle for showing us what pizza can be.
