If you are heading down to the Gold Coast this weekend, you have to stop into Double Zero at Broadbeach for lunch or dinner.
Offering a fantastic vibe, great location, delicious food and drink, Double Zero is the Gold Coast’s hottest new bar and pizzeria.
The pizza offered is traditional Neapolitan wood fired pizza, cooked for 90 seconds in a wood fired oven that heats up to 500 degrees. You can literally stand behind the counter and watch your pizza rise to perfection in a minute and a half.
The name behind Double Zero focuses on the type of flour used in the dough. The Italians categorize their flour based on how finely the flour is grounded. “00” is the finest a flour can be and you really notice the difference in the quality of the pizza. It's fluffy, light and you can eat an entire pizza without getting that gluggy, full feeling you would normally get if you were to do the same thing at another restaurant.
Double Zero also applies this theory to the other ingredients they use, so you know you are only consuming the highest quality of produce when you dine.
For starters - we tried the selection of Double Zero starters and the Sicilian arancini balls.
The Sicilian arancini balls were perfectly crunchy on the outside, filled with mozzarella and spinach. The mozzarella oozes out when you cut into the crunchy outside. Surrounded in a spicy Arrabiata sauce, this dish is almost a meal in itself.
For mains, you can't go past the Piccante and the Gamberetti e Zucchini. The Picante is quite spicy with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and hot salami. The Gamberetti e Zucchini offers a generous serving of garlic and prawns with San Marzano tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella. Again, the dough is amazing. So light and fresh, it doesn’t really matter what toppings you put on it.
And then there's everyone's favourite - the classic Margherita. The simplicity of this pizza really lets the perfection of the dough and the quality of the produce shine. Teamed with a glass of red, you’ll be in Italian heaven.
Double Zero also offers a pizza masterclass you can enroll into if you want to learn the craft of making a perfect pizza. It's fun and you get to eat what you cook!
If you want a taste of traditional Italy, head down to Double Zero on the Gold Coast.
