Here's some news that may change your life. All those takeaway pizza boxes you've been turfing out with the recycling? Landfill.
Turns out cheesy grease stains render them environmentally unfriendly but the clever cats at Windsor newbie Small Print Pizza have solved a problem you didn't know you had with guilt-free City of Stonnington-approved packaging. How? They place a of greaseproof paper at the bottom of each takeaway box to protect the cardboard from being spoilt. How's that for public service?
It's just one of many sustainable angles at this slick new pizza shop, a sixth venue for Phil Gijsbers (of Hard Pressed Coffee and From On High in Prahran) and business partners Adam Chapman and Neil Mills that's cheekily opened two doors up from another pizza joint – although we're pretty sure that their 30-seat dining room furnished with recycled timber and galvanised steel hightops is angling for a different demographic.

Head chef Sam Kleinschmidt, who brings dough expertise from a stint at Mile End Bagels, is turning out vegie-focused stone-ground flour bases ($16-$22) topped with everything from vegan cheese to kangaroo meatballs and smoked brisket.
The entire drinks list comes via taps (from house-made softies to beer, cider and wine) to further lighten their carbon footprint, and if you're too lazy to come and pick it up the guys from Foodora will ride it over to you.
Open Sun-Thu 4pm-9.30pm, Fri-Sat 4pm-10.30pm.
