Yep its not New York (or even Italian) style for that matter. But these are excellent pizzas.
Large with high quality toppings, very flavoursome combinations.

I love it.

Nice tables in the window, or on the footpath (across from the Uni) watch the world go by. They also sell beer! What more could you want.

They make it all fresh, and it tastes better than anywhere else in town. The view is kind of Student-Ville but if you like a lively scene, it's great. Try the lunch-time subs. Fantastic.

Poppa's holds a very dear place in my heart because it was one of my favourite haunts as a student at Otago. Poppa's is located in the middle of campus and dropping by for a lunchtime pizza and beer was common.

Apart from being an established part of the student lifestyle, their pizzas are great. The Hottentot is a must for jalapenos lovers.

If you visit Dunedin, a trip to campus is a must, so stop over at Poppa's and indulge in a pizza and some local beer. You won't regret it.

Thicker base than i like in a pizza, but the toppings are varied, seemingly authentic and consistently good. I go every time I’m in Dunedin. It’s across the road from the university so has a real student vibe. Try it, you might be surprised.
