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.

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.

With ex-Lo & Behold chef consultant, Matthew White – who also notably helped open Extra Virgin Pizza, another choice pizza joint.  

TRY THIS: Dangerous Diego ($17), a chorizo pizza grilled in manchego and finished with roasted garlic chilli oil and sweet paprika and Crazy for Kale ($19) with goat cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds, cherry tomatoes and roasted squash.

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’s spanking new outlet at Binjai Park is just down the road from the first one, but it’s bigger and just as good, if not even better. Vintage elements like mosaic floor tiles and red lamps give the pizza and bar areas a charming retro feel, and overturned recycled wine crates along the alfresco dining area offer a refreshing atmosphere for those in the mood to unwind and relax. Then there are the signature wood-fired (that go up to an XXL size), thin-crust pizzas that, paired with a chilled Belgian beer, will keep you coming back for more. 

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.

Pizza Express

icon-location-pin Orchard

Many would recognise this London franchise which has branched out all around the world since it first opened over 50 years ago. Here in Singapore, you'll even find a few branches sprawled across the island. With pizza, pastas and antipasti platters available on the menu, this is a carb lover's dream.

TRY THIS: Thin crust pizza lovers can pick from the Romana pizza list which includes the American Hottest ($28) chock-full of spicy sausages and peppers and Carbonara ($27) if you like your pizza rich and creamy. If you're more of a regular crust kinda person, stick to the classic Margherita ($14).

La Braceria

icon-location-pin Bukit Timah

Hearty, rustic Italian cooking is the draw at La Braceria. Wonderful, thin-crust pizzas with dense, flavourful toppings emerge from the blackened dome of the oven, but best of all are the home-made sausages – fat tubes stuffed with fresh meat, marinated for days in a secret blend of seasonings and spices. It’s very popular and can get pretty squashed on weekends.

TRY THIS: Alla Bismark ($25) with mozzarella, cooked ham, egg and creamy truffle and Calzone ($23) which is pretty much a folded pizza full of tomato, mozzarella, cooked ham, mushrooms and parmesan cheese.

Extra Virgin Pizza

icon-location-pin Raffles Place

The brains behind OverEasy are combining the Neapolitan and Roman styles in their twin Woodstone pizza ovens: chewy and tender meets thin and crisp. The dough for each of the ten pizza selections is hand-stretched, made with soft-grain Italia Caputo 00 flour from Naples and topped with organic Californian Saporito tomatoes.

TRY THIS: If you fancy an egg on your pizza, pick the Guanciale & Egg ($28), a white based pizza with béchamel, mozzarella, italian cured pork jowl and an egg cracked in the middle of it. Or else stick to a good ol' classic like the Margherita ($20).
