Pizza in Hastings & Around

Bright pink with candy stripes, chandeliers and mismatched furniture, cheeky Pipi thumbs its nose at small-town conventionality. The food focus is on simple pasta, thin-crust pizza, craft beer and local wines. Pipi Truck (www.facebook.com/pipitruck) randomly turns up around the bay, taking pizza to the streets.

Pipi Hotel (www.pipihotel.co.nz), a retro two-bedroom house sleeping six (from $250), is across the street.
