Where you need to go when you need a pizza at 3am on a weekend
This is a pizza joint that's been doing god's work every weekend by offering Fitzroy's late-night stragglers with the saving grace that is a warm slice of pizza. Open until 3.30am on Friday and Saturday, Shawcross's by-the-slice pizzas are just the right amount of greasy, and there's usually even a vegan or vegetarian option for the meat-averse.
If you come in a little earlier or order a delivery, you'll have more options with your pizza pies, so ask for the local favourites like the Notorious P.I.G. with pork sausage, bacon, jalapenos and BBQ sauce, or their take on the margherita dubbed the Fat Tony. Planning a party? Order the 22-inch monster pizza, available in half-and-half. There will be no regrets.

I recently moved to Fitzroy and had heard lots about Shawcross Pizza so 2 weeks ago I went in to try it. I love my pizza and have been eating pizza at the same place in Brunswick for years and was worried that I had lost my favourite pizza joint, I had discovered my new favourite place and I was honestly surprised at how delicious this pizza was. The majority of the pizzas on the menu are original and I haven't seen these combinations of toppings anywhere. The cheese has to be the best cheese I have ever tasted and the base was perfect. They are always quite busy but crazy busy on weekends so I recommend you eat in or pick it up yourself if dining during the weekends because this week I waited a little over an hour for my delivery, and not much they can do about that, but definitely worth the wait. They have definitely won me over!
