munja pizza

munja pizza, a woodfired pizza restaurant from locals John and Paulina Barbato, opened in Wynnum in 2022 to a great local response. The couple have parlayed a passion for Napoli-style pizza and a desire for a career change into the concept, which adds a much-needed piece of Italy to a suburb craving a greater range of authentic options. The couple have imbued the 30-seater venue with a chic design boasting plenty of curves and eye-catching pink and green tiling, with a massive Valoriani pizza oven the venue’s centrepiece. At munja pizza, Napoli-style pizzas reign supreme. The menu features eight woodfired selections – including a mix of classics and family recipes – all made using a dough recipe John first learned from an Italian baker friend 25 years ago. Years of at-home recipe refinement has resulted in a base that is flavoursome from the tip of the slice to the crust, offering the perfect foundation for munja’s range of toppings. A concise beverage list featuring canned wines and beers is also available to those dining in.
