Pizza Luna has been at Rivonia Village for a while, but I’ve only recently started exploring Joburg, and only heard about their Banting (or low carb) pizza bases this week.
I excitedly started looking for victims to take with me, and as luck would have it, Lee (or the boyfriend) was going to be at RAGE on Friday. So I convinced him to come have lunch with me in Rivonia before heading off to the Gaming Expo.
Pizza Luna is located in a corner in Rivonia Village. But it’s the perfect place for it. Sitting under the trees makes you feel like you’re in a laid back area, making the experience even better.
As soon as Lee and I walked in, a friendly waiter asked if we’re joining them for lunch and allowed us to grab any table we wanted. A menu then followed promptly.
To drink, we ordered 2 milkshakes: bubblegum and chocolate. Very un-Banting but the milkshakes were delicious. The bubblegum was white is colour so I thought they had got my order wrong (I only order the bubblegum milkshake for the blue colour 🙈). The milkshake was definitely bubblegum and it was delicious and not too sweet. The chocolate milkshake was also yummy and rich.
To eat, we ordered the Carnivora pizza that was packed with meat: salami, ham and beef sausage. The pizza sauce was bolognaise. And we added a Banting pizza base for R24 extra.
The pizza was delicious! The Banting pizza base was thin and the crust crunchy. It was the best Banting pizza I’ve ever eaten. The different meat complemented each other well and the sauce was delicious. We were also served fresh green chilies, which added some heat to the pizza.
We had a great time at Pizza Luna. The service was great, as our waiter checked on us often and so did the owner. I would definitely be back for the Banting pizza. It’s a good thing Pizza Luna is less than 5 minutes from work 😊.
I give Pizza Luna 3 cupcakes.
