8 artisanal pizza joints in Singapore to satisfy your cheesy cravings
As the saying goes: Pizza all day, err day. Whether you’re on Team Pineapple or not, we can all agree that this cheesy, doughy triangle undoubtedly holds a special place in our hearts. Heaped with a mountain of droolworthy toppings atop fluffy bread, we can’t help but reach for more.
To mark National Pizza Day on Feb 9, it’s only right that we celebrate our love for pizzas by spoiling ourselves with some of the best pizzas in town.
Whether you’re craving a classic margherita, or perhaps the crowd-favourite quattro formaggi, look no further! These eight artisanal pizza joints are perfect to hit up when your cheesy cravings hit.
1. Chooby Pizza
Old Hen Kitchen, 125 Owen Road
Open: Wednesday to Friday (6pm to 10pm)
Why visit? True pizza fans would have heard of Chooby Pizza, as this snazzy joint has been making its rounds on social media for its naturally-leavened, Napolitan-style slices. The pizzeria has a slim menu of only six flavours, and with good reason.
Each sourdough pizza goes through a rigorous process to ensure top-notch quality. It’s first hand stretched, then proofed for 24 hours before baking in a wood-fired oven. Throw on a multitude of fresh ingredients, and the result is an irresistible, umami-filled bread.
Price range: $$
Crowd faves: You can’t go wrong with the margherita (S$16 for a whole), a timeless delight slathered in San Marzano tomato sauce and sweet Fior di latte cheese. If you prefer something more contemporary, give the truffle mushroom (S$18.50 for a whole) a try.
2. Madd Pizza
19/20/21 Haji Lane
Open: Monday to Sunday (11.45am to 12am)
Why visit? Helmed by master baker Neagu Gavril Virgil, Madd Pizza is the spot to make a beeline for when it comes to scrummy Roman-style pizza. You can choose to order the pizzas by slice or as a whole, which makes it great for solo nights out or group dinners.
For variety-seekers, there’s also an extensive selection of flavours for you to choose from. Think: Zucchini and anchovies (S$13 for a slice, S$67 for a whole) — a treat that reminds you of the Italian summer, or eggplant parmigiana (S$13 for a slice, S$67 for a whole) for a savoury blend of sweet and salty.
Price range: $$$$
Crowd faves: Blanketed with four different types of cheese, cheese lovers should try the quattro formaggi (S$14 for a slice, S$70 for a whole). Each slice melts in your mouth and tastes divine.
3. 800 Degrees Woodfired Pizza
Kinex, 01-52/53, 11 Tanjong Katong Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (11am to 9.30pm)
Why visit? Magic happens at 800 degrees Fahrenheit, which is how this halal-certified pizzeria got its name. Here, each pizza is carefully prepared in its open-concept kitchen, before it is sent into an 800 degrees Fahrenheit wood-fired oven.
The wood fire and high temperature infuse an addictive smokiness into the crust and ingredients, the result of which is a beautiful creation that delivers a slightly-charred, crisp crust and a soft centre. Pizzas at 800 Degrees Woodfired Pizza are served in 10” and 14” sizes, which make them wonderful as sides or for sharing with friends.
Price range: $$$
Crowd faves: Laden with alfredo sauce, juicy ribeye steak and rich mozzarella cheese, the Philly cheesesteak (S$22 for a slice, S$34 for a whole) is a showstopper. You can also order the chilli crab (S$24 for a slice, S$36 for a whole) for a unique rendition of our beloved local dish.
4. Wild Child Pizzette
50 Circular Road
Open: Wednesday to Monday (12pm to 2.30pm, 5.30pm to 10.30pm)
Why visit? Wild Child Pizzette touts a cheeky slogan, “all good things come in 10 inches”, and rightfully so. Served in petite quadrants, the folks at this pizzeria prove that no matter the size, its pizzettes still pack a delicious punch.
The pizzas here are as quirky and unconventional as its slogan, such as the tartufo (S$26 for a whole), a cheesy pie topped with curly fried potatoes and truffle paste, and crispy fried margherita (S$28.50 for a whole) with fried pizza dough. We encourage you to go big and bold with your choices.
Price range: $$$
Crowd faves: Each flavour offers a sensational experience of its own, but we’d go for the All’ Amatriciana (mother sauce, smoked bacon, Thai chilli flakes and red onions, S$25 for a whole) for that fiery goodness.
5. Zazz Pizza
Cross Street Exchange, 01-108, 18 Cross Street
Open: Tuesday to Thursday (11.30am to 2.30pm, 5.30pm to 10pm), Friday (11.30am to 2.30pm, 5.30pm to 10.30pm), Saturday (11.30am to 10.30pm), Sunday (11.30am to 10pm)
Why visit? There’s nothing we love more than amazing food that doesn’t break the bank. Zazz Pizza is right up our alley, for it offers unpretentious Italian fare at affordable prices. Despite its no-frills interior, the joint carries a curated range of artisanal Neapolitan-style pizzas that are baked to perfection.
You can’t miss out on the signature Zazz Pizza (S$34.56 for a whole), a hearty decadence dressed in truffle cream, Australian ribeye steak and cherry tomatoes.
Price range: $$$
Crowd faves: If you’re into thin crusts, then you’ll fall head over heels for the burrata pizza (S$34.56 for a whole). Sporting puffy, crisp edges with just the right amount of char, each bite presents a myriad of textures with the creamy burrata cheese.
6. Wolfrik’s Pizzeria
Singapore Management University, B1-65, 80 Stamford Road
Open: Monday to Saturday (11.30am to 8.30pm)
Why visit? Located conveniently in the heart of town, Wolfrik’s Pizzeria serves gourmet pizzas made with premium Italian flour at value-for-money prices. This is much welcomed, as finding cheap, quality establishments can be a challenge, especially with rising inflation and GST hikes. Wolfrik’s Pizzeria is definitely worth a visit, for there are few other joints that offer whole pizzas below S$20! Even better, there’s a personal meal set for your picking. It includes a mouthwatering 9” pizza and a canned drink for below S$15.
Price range: $$
Crowd faves: Try its Asian fusion pizzas, inspired by local flavours. The garlic butter prawn (S$16 for a whole) is an aromatic platter of succulent prawns tossed in a creamy butter sauce, while Peking duck (S$16 for a whole) features an appetising combination of smoky roast duck and crunchy green onions.
7. Dario Pizza & More
JK Village, 6 Clementi Road
Open: Tuesday to Thursday (12pm to 2pm, 6pm to 9.30pm), Friday and Saturday (12pm to 2pm, 6pm to 9.45pm), Sunday (12pm to 2pm, 5.30pm to 9.30pm)
Why visit? If you can’t decide between two flavours, Dario Pizza & More allows you to fashion a customised pizza with two different halves. We say go crazy with the combinations — there’s a flavour befitting any occasion!
The diner is also reputed for its slices with chewy centres and airy crusts, which are hallmarks of any good pizza. There’s a host of scrumptious options for you to choose from, too. You’d be spoiled for choice between its classics, signatures and calzoni.
Price range: $$
Crowd faves: Expect novel creations, such as the Carbo (S$22 for a whole), a delicacy heaped with mozzarella cheese, tangy tomato sauce, bacon and egg. The Contadina (S$25 for a whole) will also surprise you with its special twist on the eggplant parmigiana.
8. Daniele’s Pizza
Plaza 8 @ CBP, 01-19, 1 Changi Business Park Crescent
Open: Monday to Saturday (11am to 2.30pm, 4.30pm to 9pm)
Why visit? Daniele’s Pizza is a cosy spot spearheaded by Italian-born chef Daniele Colaiacomo, who has worked at various pizzerias in Rome as well as at Al Forno and Pete’s Place in Singapore. Judging by the gorgeous leopard spotting on its bread, you can see Colaiacomo knows what he’s doing, and takes pride in the art of pizza making.
His hand-stretched dough is fermented for at least 48 hours, before it’s coated with Fior di latte cheese for a light and chewy texture. Pizzas here stay true to his roots, with his creations inspired by the flavours of Italy.
Price range: $$
Crowd faves: If you’re a solo diner on a hunt for good ol’ fashioned pizzas, we recommend the mini pizze capricciosa (S$14 for a 10” pizza). It sports ham, artichokes and mushrooms brought together by mozzarella cheese. Otherwise, get the pizze parma (S$24 for a 12” pizza) for a flavourful pie of mozzarella cheese, parma ham, rocket salad and parmesan.
