Ladro X Deliveroo

Ladro Pizza Delivery

We always think eating pizza straight from the wood-fire oven is best. BUT, if you can’t come to us, Ladro has partnered up with Deliveroo so our pizza can come to you.
Order from FITZROY
Order from PRAHRAN

Of course we also think you’re better off picking up the pizza yourself too…call us purists. We’re all about making sure you enjoy Roman style, thin crust pizza the way it should be eaten.

Vegan mozzarella? Yes you can.
Gluten free pizza? Yep, that too.
AND our Deliveroo menu includes all the other Ladro favourites, not just pizza.

Buon appetito!

VEGAN MOZZARELLA? YES!

Vegan mozzarella at Ladro.

Who doesn’t love pizza? Stupid question, of course everyone does. But for some of us, a delicious cheesy pizza is a disaster waiting to happen, for others omitting dairy is simply a lifestyle choice. Now those who can’t eat dairy and those who choose not to, can enjoy feasting on a Ladro pizza without missing out….on the chesse!
Ladro has introduced an amazing handmade vegan mozzarella to the menu, available in both Fitzroy and Prahran for your pizza feasting pleasure.

What’s the cheese?

Traditional mozzarella is made from buffalo milk and cows milk, hand formed into milky balls of curd – when fresh it’s hard not to eat them like apples! Okay, so vegan mozzarella it’s not made from buffalo or cows milks and doesn’t have that same stringy, stretchy, cheesiness we all love, but we reckon it’s the next best thing to the real deal. Our vegan mozzarella is soy based and melts like real cheese with the consistency of real mozzarella. Queen Margherita would be quietly chuffed and happily serve our vegan mozzarella on her namesake pizza.
If you want to experiment making your own vegan cheese, take a look at Julie Piatt’s book “This Cheese is Nuts”.

Feed Me Vegan Menus?

Ladro can also offer vegan Feed Me Menus based on our extremely popular Feed Me $45, $55 and $65 per head options. Simply inform us when you book your next function or event at Ladro and we will devise a seasonal menu for your entire group. Our pizza dough is vegan, as long as you are ok with yeast. We don’t use any animal products in preparation of the Ladro pizza dough and embrace traditional slow proving methods develop our award winning Roman style pizzas. Roman pizzas, unlike their Napoli cousins, are thinner and crispier with an ‘al dente cornicione’, or firm to the bite pizza edge/ crust.

Gluten Free Pizza

We also offer gluten free pizza at Ladro in Fitzroy and Prahran. Our gluten free pizza dough is made in the same traditional method as our conventional pizzas, with yeast and a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, from soya, tapioca, corn and rice flours. We introduced gluten free pizzas 6 years ago at Ladro due to the high incidence of gluten intolerance amongst the Italian population. So if you happen to be a gluten free vegan, we’ve got all the bases covered!

To make a reservation either book online – Fitzroy or Prahran, or call us on

BOTTOMLESS PIZZA – TUESDAYS

Bottomless Pizza returns in 2018 to Fitzroy and Prahran every Tuesday until Spring!

Get on your scooter and hightail to Fitzroy or Prahran to fill your belly with unlimited pizza for $20pp. Feast with a group of friends, your family or roll on in solo.

BOTTOMLESS PIZZAS
– Pizza Margherita [surprise, surprise]
– Badabing Pizza
– Mariners Pizza
– Pizza Puttanesca

Our 2018 Bottomless Pizza’s are the 4 most popular pizzas we serve at Ladro, so we know you’ll love them.

ROSSA vs BIANCA?

Coincidentally, the top 4 pizzas all happen to have a rossa, or red pizza base. This may have something to do with our outrageously delicious Italian sugo. Or it could just be that rossa pizzas really are better than their bianca counterparts. You be the judge! Ladro loves all of it’s pizzas like children, equally.

The first Italian pizzas were actually bianca style flat breads served as a peasant food and made simply with oil, herbs and garlic – tomato sugo, olives and anchovies are said to have been an addition soon after, and eventually cheese was added. In 1889 the Margherita Pizza was born in honour of the queen of the day. Find out more about the origins of pizza here. Feast on the Ladro ‘Mariners Pizza’ which is said to be the original pizza the Fishermen ate upon arrival back to shore and many pizza-files argue this is a tastier pizza than the Margherita.

Very few pizzerias actually serve this ancient recipe, but we do at Ladro. Less is more and this is truly one of the tastiest pizzas ever created.
If you are ever in Naples, be sure to visit Da Michele where they only serve 2 pizzas. The original Marinara and the traditional Neopolitan Margherita. There is always a very lengthy queue so be sure to arrive early or you could be left salivating, watching the hoards feast on these two misshapen pizzas with envy.

EASTER OPENING HOURS

Ladro Easter Opening Hours 2018

Everyone at Ladro will be taking some valuable time off to spend feasting with family and friends and we hope you have the opportunity to do the same.

BUONA PASQUA + HAPPY EASTER to all our awesome customers! XO Ladro
