There are about five Hell Pizzas in Brisbane. This is a New Zealand Gourmet Pizza chain that has a Vegan Mexican pizza call the Sinister, which is absolutely amazing and low fat. Make sure you tell them to clean the pizza cutter or you'll get cross contaminated. Best vegan thing to eat in the world, don't miss out!
