Everyone knows the best food for lazy, stay-in days and also for sharing with friends is pizza. It's a step up from the guilty-pleasure fast food takeaway and a nice break from the usual suspects at the neighbourhood hawker centre. Stuffed crust, with or without pineapples, crisp thin crust, pizza margherita or topped with pepperoni and extra cheese, we love pizza in all its forms.

PS Cafe

icon-location-pin Orchard

There is more to PS Cafe than the slightly overpriced brunch options. Skip the pasta and head straight for its pizza selections. Less is best when it comes to the pizzas here. The crust is light and not doughy and when it comes to toppings, the philosophy is not to have an overwhelming quantity of toppings but good quality.

TRY Keep it simple with the signature garlic prawn ($29) or go for the carbonara pizza ($29) with loads of pancetta on top and a side of homemade chilli.

La Nonna

La Nonna, meaning "The Grandmother" in Italian is a charming and rustic restaurant where you can expect hearty Italian dishes a jolly grandmother would make. Besides the pasta dishes, pizza is also what La Nonna does best. Everything served is good for sharing so the more, the merrier!

TRY Get the signature La Nonna Pizza ($24.50) that comes with a gooey egg and black truffle. For the cheese connoisseur, try the Quattro Formaggi ($23.90) that has some goat cheese in the mix.

La Pizzaiola

Sharing the quiet Braddell Heights row with Wimbly Lu and The Cajun Kings, this Italian La Pizzaiola pizzeria features 12 different thin crust pizzas fired up in an oven from Italy, and other cuisine favourites.

TRY Pie flavours include a standard margherita ($14) and the signature La Pizzaiola Speciale ($18) with roast beef, Italian rocket, mozzarella, parmesan and lashings of truffle oil.

Saizeriya

Don't belittle this low budget no-frills restaurant. Known for its super affordable dishes, Saizeriya does not compromise on taste especially when it comes to pizza. Despite its small portions, it is nonetheless delicious and of lip-smacking gravity. The pizza is made of thin crust with a copious amount of ingredients layered judiciously for your taste buds, giving you a satisfying and fortifying bite.

TRY It's back to basics pineapple and bacon pizza ($6.40) and margherita pizza ($6.40).

Bella Pizza

icon-location-pin Raffles Place

Bella Pizza serves your usual fare of red and white pizzas but they do it really well. Easily one of the best slices in town, it's the classics that stand out. On top of that, they also serve Sicilian pizza boats which are essentially boat-shaped pizzas and layered with ingredients like ham and cheese and calzones, a folded pizza stuffed with all the good things.

TRY THIS Go for a simple red pizza like the Pizza Burrata ($28) or get on a Sicilian pizza boat with the Barca Siciliana con Bufala E Prosciutto ($23), where you have roasted tomatoes and buffalo mozarella wrapped in lots of prosciutto.

Amò

icon-location-pin Raffles Place

When a man meets your eye with a big pizza pie, that’s amore – especially if that man is chef Beppe De Vito and the pizza’s from his new restaurant, Amò. Part of the ilLido Group, the eatery is sophisticated yet casual, with dim lights that draw all attention to the open kitchen where De Vito and his pizza chef Federico Schiraldi toss dough through the air before it’s baked in a wood-fired oven that’s made in Italy, of course. Schiraldi’s pizzas are light and doughy, with a crisp and slightly charred base. But if you’re looking for variety, you’re not going to find it here – there are only eight pizzas on the menu.

TRY THIS Opt for one with creamy stracciatella buffalo cheese, prosciutto, rocket, and fig vincotto ($29), which is an Italian vinegar similar to balsamic but a touch stickier and sweeter. There’s also a pie with mushrooms, truffle, mascarpone and a generous shaving of pecorino from Tuscany ($32).

Blue Label Pizza and Wine

icon-location-pin Telok Ayer

Set up by American chef Travis Masiero, the brains behind Luke’s Oyster Bar and Chop House, Blue Label follows that same NYC to SG formula for success. Follow the flickering “pizza and wine” neon sign and you’ll find the restaurant in B28’s old digs. Instead of chill jazz tunes, the space reverberates with Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC and people screaming over each other trying to get a word in.

TRY THIS Start with the Chicago-style spinach and artichoke dip ($21), it's not pizza but one of the best things you'll ever eat. For pizza, there’s the J-Dog ($32) an upgrade on the meat lovers packed with pork sausage, bacon, pepperoni and a tinge of spice from finely cubed jalapeños. Plus The Travis Supreme ($31) – if you’ve ever wondered what a McDonald’s cheeseburger pizza would taste like, here’s your answer.

Publico

icon-location-pin Raffles Place

The crown jewel of the new InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay, Publico Ristorante is drop-dead gorgeous. Think granite floors laid in bold geometric patterns that call to mind Italy’s many piazzas, dramatic green walls that double up as vertical gardens, furniture set in neutral hues that channel breezy coastal vibes, and floor-to-ceiling windows that open out to the riverside terrace.

TRY THIS Go for the classic margherita ($21) or live your cheesy dreams to the fullest with its range of other pies like the burrata ($26) or the gorgonzola ($26).

Peperoni Pizzeria

icon-location-pin Bukit Timah

Peperoni Pizzeria started out in 2004 in a leafy enclave at Greenwood, welcoming friends and families with comforting Italian classics and a warm atmosphere. While Peperoni’s wood-fired pizzas and traditional pastas are well loved by the young and old alike, over the years, the pizzeria has become synonymous with its signature offering – the one-of-a-kind XXL 21-inch pizzas. From prosciutto to pepperoni, ham, chicken, and seafood, there is something for everyone on the menu.

TRY THIS: Prosciutto Di Parma ($62 for XXL) with parma ham, rocket salad and shaved parmesan and Frutti Di Mare ($62 for XXL), a seafood lover's dream.
