Alphonsus Pizza has opened at The Glen Hotel, bringing a taste of Italy to Brisbane’s south side.

This authentic Italian pizzeria is plating up house favourites, as well as classic twists (think: nine-inch dessert pizzas) straight from two stunning Stefano Ferrera stone pizza ovens shipped straight from Naples.

The Glen Hotel & Suites Owner Brian Fitzgibbons says they completed extensive research about the best authentic pizza ovens available.


“Stefano Ferrera have been making pizza ovens the traditional way for three generations and they are considered the best,” said Mr Fitzgibbons.

A bright undercover al fresco dining area complete with hanging gardens welcomes customers to an uninterrupted view of the open kitchen, with gleaming wood fired ovens and Alphonsus’ chief pizzaiolo Jim Parker.

“We are serious about providing customers with the best Neapolitan pizzas around,” said Mr Fitzgibbons.

“Our specialist Pizzaiolo Jim has competed in, and won, many pizza challenges over the years and he is excited to bring his passion for Neapolitan pizza to The Glen.”

Guest will be served the freshest ingredients including Fior Di latte, pepperoni, prosciutto, and fresh rosemary, alongside vegetarian and gluten free options.

A newly renovated children’s playground is available for an outing appealing to all members of the family.
