If you don't feel like cooking tonight, or you are on holiday and looking for a good takeaway pizza to take back to the hotel, then keep reading for some local options around the Nelson Bay region. Of course, there is Domino's pizza at Nelson Bay
and Salamander Bay
for cheap pizza on a budget, but if you are looking for something wood-fired or a little bit fancy, then the Port Stephens region has you covered. Many of these takeaway venues have dine-in options as well or you can take your pizza to a nearby bay or beach
, to enjoy your pizza with a view.
These are the ones that my family have discovered - which one is your favourite?
