Meanwhile in Melbourne, the riverside Arbory Afloat will be hosting a Detroit Style Pizza pop-up, slinging only 75 of the deep dish, cheesy rectangular pizzas each day from 12 March to 31 March.

Dished up by Afloat’s resident pizza phenomenon Salim Gafaryi and Executive Chef Nick Bennet, the limited-edition pizzas are topped with plenty of cheese (edge to edge) and a range of delicious toppings before being baked in a hot deck oven.
The signature menu will feature five pizzas at $26 each, including the Detroit Style Margherita, Classic Pepperoni, Supreme, Detroit Style Funghi and DSP of the Day.
