EVERYONE knows the classic flavours like meatlovers or Hawaiian, but they've been given a different spin at Antonio's Italian Pizzeria. 

The gourmet store has been named as one of the top pizza places by our readers. 

A Facebook post had more than 60 comments when we asked where to get the best pizza in Rockhampton, with some clear winners. 

While many people nominated their own kitchens, Antonio's, Pacino's and Pizza Capers seemed to come out on top. 

There were also nominations for The Giddy Goat and Demedios, as well as some votes for Pizza Hut, Eagle Boys and Domino's. 

A little further afield lies the Caves pub, Great Keppel Island pizza and Mamma Rosa's in Blackwater.

Anthony Mason co-owns Antonio's with his father Alan, and said they make an average of 60 to 70 pizzas most days.

He compared pizza to steak, and said every person had different palates and opinions on how it should be cooked. 

"Everyone has their own preference on how crispy, cheesy or saucy it should be," he said. 

At their store they use fresh products to give their pizzas a more authentic taste. 

Their bases are prepped early in the day, and the dough comes out about an hour before they start taking orders and cooking to give the bases a chance to rise before the sauce and cheese is added.
