My name is Daniel Pirrone-Cook. I grew up in Melbourne working in my fathers Italian Pizza Restaurant named Uncle Leos Pizza for many years.

Everyday I would be in the restaurant helping out my father at the front of store or in the kitchen. My father taught me all the traditional pizza making skills and how to run the family business that is still to this day very successful and has been operating for more than 20 years.

I met my partner Belinda Ann Karcoushkas who moved to the Gold Coast in 2012 and brought with her many years of experience in the hospitality industry managing restaurants and cafes.

Together we decided to open up our very own pizza shop in Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast to bring that authentic Melbourne taste to the Gold Coast.

‘Pizza Temptations’ was born. Our menu is quite extensive. In addition to traditional pizzas, we also offer pastas, risottos, pork ribs, chicken wings, salads, chicken parmigiana, chicken schnitzel and garlic bread.

One of our key point of differences is our delicious dessert pizzas that include Rocky Road, Cookies and Cream Cheesecake, Apple Crumble and many more. We also have a unique style of pizzas that come under our temptation range which include “nacho”, “spaghetti bolognese” and “carbonara” pizza just to mention a few.

We have a wide range of loyal customers who continue to come back time and time again. We are proud of the great reviews we receive constantly on social media and online. We have online ordering, home delivery and weekly specials.

Demand is strong and so we are now franchising and looking for like-minded people to help transform Pizza Temptations into a nationwide brand. If you have a passion for delicious tasting Italian food like we do and have always wanted to operate your own business then consider franchising with Pizza Temptationsand be tempted.

That’s our story. We hope Pizza Temptations excites you as much as it does us, and if so we look forward to seeing you in one of our stores and tasting our food or further explore if Pizza Temptations could be the dream business you’ve been looking for

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Pirrone-Cook

  • Yummy food and great service. NACHO PIZZA – is the best! Ordered a satay pizza tonight which was tasty and heaps of topping but really disappointed I was charged $1.50 extra for sour cream when it was very minimal. Dont mind paying extra if u actually get a decent amount…..

  • Great new pizza shop !! Under the pump on a Friday night but made delicious, filling food. Really impressed with everything we tried (ribs, pasta and pizza + dessert). Highly recommended. A few extra staff wouldn’t go astray but this all comes with a new business – you will be a success if you keep pumping out great tasting food!!
