Soul Pizza (Fortitude Valley, QLD)

Soul Pizza was recommended to me by a friend recently, and while I'm not the biggest pizza eater, I do enjoy a good pizza once in a while.  Since he, as well as all the reviews that I had seen claimed that this place was the best pizza in Brisbane, a few of us decided to go out and grab some for dinner.

Like any other pizza joint, Soul Pizza has the plastic benches and stools for seats - nothing too fancy.  There's a mural on one wall, but don't be expecting a comfy restaurant, cause it's all about the pizza!  The pizzas aren't gourmet pizzas, with fancy ingredients like hand-shaven parmesan, arugula, and the like - but they are humongous and generously filled with toppings.  For about $15, you can feed a good four people!  The crust isn't thin-crust, but is a good thickness and texture, though a bit difficult to handle with one hand.  They offer a variety of choices, including their own creations...

I had the Porto Peri (15), which was a bit too spicy for me, and the spiciness covered up the flavour of everything else, which I kind of didn't enjoy.  It could have used a bit more of another spice.  I also got to try the BBQ Hog Fest (17), which is topped with lots of meat and a BBQ sauce.  It's apparently the most popular one!  I enjoyed it better than the Porto Peri, as the flavour of the toppings weren't masked by the sauce.  Though these weren't the best pizza I've ever had, they seem to be consistent, and are definitely good for the value.
