It’s a seasonal place so they do vary…
Currently we are open Wednesday to Sunday from 5 pm till 9 pm. You may get a pizza or gelato as late as 10pm whilst we are cleaning up.
You can order from around 4:30.
Google “the view pizza” and it will have the correct hours.
A few words about the Owner
Hi from Frank
I have been making pizzas at The View in Hardys Bay since 2015 so must be doing something right, but we are always trying to improve. We operated out of the back of a trailer around Wagstaff before that.
A few words about pizzas
What makes them great…
Our pizzas are made with dough imported from Italy. Same for our tomatoes, anchovies and many others. We are always trying to improve the taste with better ingredients and processes. We pride ourselves on coming up with new SPECIAL pizzas to keep the menu fresh. We don’t put cheese all the way to the edge as the cheese rolls off and the oven get sticky and it is hard to spin a pizza. Also on cheese, we don’t put on as much as some people like, not because we are cheap but it boils the fresh ingredients rather than woodfire them. If you want more cheese, just ask, we do not charge extra
A few words about The View
Now and the future…
When is the building getting torn down? I do not know! Will we be back? I would love too! Who doesn’t love this town and its characters But the time frame for the massive construction, cost of new premises, rent during winter will all be factors. But who knows, if you have a location, let me know!
About woodfired Ovens
Hope this helps
We can cook a pizza in 2 minutes when the oven is really going, but generally around 5 minutes. During summer we cook over 150 a night, more than 1 every 30 seconds during peak times! Wood always varies how it burns and waiting times can vary as we readjust the temperature. I am happy to answer questions about cooking in your own woodfired oven, have a glass of wine or two when we are not busy.
How, when, why?…
If you are one of the few Aussies who are on time let us know and we will put it in for an agreed time, otherwise it is generally within 5 minutes from when you arrive. We prefer to put your pizza in the oven when you arrive because 5 minutes in a cardboard box is not good for any pizza.
We deliver everywhere on the peninsula, from Wagstaff to Macmasters to Putty Beach campsite and Empire Bay and Bensville. We charge $5 (more to Macmasters, Empire Bay, Daleys Point and Bensville). Please put the light on and any extra instructions about your location as the house numbers in the area are terrible.
A place to wine, a place to dine
Eat in or take it across the road depending on current COVID rules..
Looking to book a table? During covid, we recommend eating across the road, relax, enjoy the sunset with a beer or wine and we will bring it to you.
Waiting times blow out in summer, order early!
Why is there waiting? All our pizzas are handmade to order. We are set up for most of the year to make about 100 pizzas a night, but we we can hit over 200 a night in summer, that’s about than 1 every 30 seconds during the peak time of 6:30 to 7:30! Getting through on the phone can be hard. ORDER EARLY! PICK A TIME, and we can have it ready at that time, maybe not 6:30. If we give you at time, when you arrive we pop your order straight in and it will be ready in about 5 minutes (yes the oven is that fast). But sometimes we have just put a big order in front of you and there will be just enough time for a beer.
