TOOWOOMBA residents are passionate about pizza with locals split on where to find the perfect slice.

The Chronicle asked locals to name the best pizza in town with responses flooding in.

La Taste was one of the reader's favourites with owner Paul Worrell overjoyed to hear his love for making pizzas was being recognised by his customers.

"My uncle owned a pizza shop in Sale for 27 years and it was here I developed an appreciation for the art form that is making pizzas," Mr Worrell said.
