[[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}}''.
