At Rocketboy it’s our mission to make a pizza that not only tastes better, but also does more good locally.
Fortunately, our local forage hasn’t been too hard. There are some rich pickings on offer for our speciality toppings from the best of the best food artisans in Sydney’s Inner West.
Take Paesaonella for example – a Marrickville based cheese making family who produce the best fresh mozzarellas and ricottas in the Southern Hemisphere! (no great surprise since they’ve been at it for over 65 years)
Around the corner from them we have Serendipity Ice Cream, another 55 year old family affair. Serendipity is still passionate and still knocking out the creamiest, most awarded ice cream in NSW.
Not all our ingredients can’t be within walking distance though. When Rocketboy launched back in 2014 we were proud to make the commitment to only use sustainably caught Australian prawns on our pizzas. You won’t find other businesses like ours doing that.
There’s a lot of ingredients in a pizza menu so we could go on all day: Aussie flours in our dough and Aussie tomatoes in our sauce. Premium oils and vinegars from the Hunter Valley. Parkers Organic Drinks from Botany, smallgoods from Lucas Meats in Bronte and so many more.
By using locally sourced, premium products and ingredients we don’t just get the benefits and feel-good from building long standing relationships with fellow foodies, but we also love the fact we are keeping the Rocketboy food carbon footprint as low as we can and supporting the local economy at the same time.
But we couldn’t do it without you, so thank you for supporting your very local local.
