WHICH slice of pizza most tickles the taste buds of Fraser Coast pizza connoisseurs?

The Chronicle asked its Facebook fans what their preferred pizza place was.

While some said they like to cook at home - the most popular choices were F.R.E.S.H Woodfired Pizza and Pasta in Maryborough and Mimo's Pizzas at Urangan in Hervey Bay.

F.R.E.S.H is owned by Maryborough couple Robert and Melissa Tralau who started the business four-and-a-half years ago.

They moved to Maryborough from the Sunshine Coast, where they'd also had a pizza shop, for a lifestyle change.

"It's the best thing we've ever done," Robert said.

"We know most of our customers by name ... we love Maryborough."

Chef Robert said the comments about F.R.E.S.H on the Facebook page were lovely.

"It's really nice to know you are being recognised," he said.

"We focus on quality, freshness and customer service."

Robert said the business had had double digit growth in the past four years and is currently looking for a new junior staff member.

"Thanks to everyone who voted, locals really do support locals," he said.

Other popular mentions included Margheriti's Kitchen at Station Square in Maryborough and Smithys Pizza at Scarness in Hervey Bay.

Top picks also included Santini Pizza E Cucina in Torquay and Paolo's Pizza Bar at Torquay.
