[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/260px-FatPizzaShopHumeHwyChullora_5925.JPG]]
A cult Australian comedy series created by Paul Fenech, ''Pizza'' is about the local Fat Pizza shop, staffed by a RagtagBunchOfMisfits like you've never seen. The gang, Pauly, Sleek (PutOnABus after TheMovie), Bobo, Habib and others, get into crazy antics involving drugs, police, bikers and even the supernatural. Set in [[{{UsefulNotes/Sydney}} Western Sydney]].

While rather lowbrow and very, ''very'' Australian, which can cause a lot of values dissonance with international audiences, ''Pizza'' is a satire of lower-class/working-class Australians, and is definitely worth a look. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4VBI8Itklg Here is the first episode, and a good spot from there to find different episodes.]]

Succeeded by {{Spiritual Successor}}s ''Series/SwiftAndShiftCouriers'' and ''{{Housos}}''.

* CasanovaWannabe: Habib, until Season 4 where he gives up, after he [[spoiler: hooks up with Toula]].

** Habib: "Uleh.", "Oh Mah God."
** Rocky: "Get the cousins!"
** Bobo: "Get to work!", "Shut up!", "Fat Pizza Pizza's, they're big and they're cheesy."
** DJBJ: "You look like a poof, mate.", "DILDO UGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!", "Dickheads!"

* MyBelovedSmother: Bobo's mother is rather controlling of him, although she seems to overlook his psychotic tendencies.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits
* StayInTheKitchen: Rocky the Lebanese Rambo has this attitude.
* TheStoner: Davo, oh Gods, Davo.
* WorldOfBadass: The series goes to great lengths to show that Australia is the most dangerous place in the world to even go outside.
