Milano Pizza & Wine's obvious pièce de résistance: the Sicilian grandma pizza. It’s somewhat of a misnomer, since its origins aren’t accurately from the picturesque town of Sicily. It’s no easy task making these pizzas – the chefs will be at it for a full day. When our Mortadella & Burrata Sicilian Grandma Pizza ($27) came out, it’s clear that the end result was worth it. Airy and light, but still somewhat dense thanks to the crispy edges.
As far as we know, Milano Pizza & Wine is the only restaurant in Singapore where you can order up Sicilian grandma pizza. They do also offer regular Neapolitan pizzas, just that they pride themselves on baking their naturally fermented sourdough base higher and longer. Since it’s all done in a stone-fired oven, you can expect charred crust and a chewy texture. Like any solid pizzeria, they do have a classic Margherita ($26), but you could also try the more unique pizzas: crab & lobster bisque ($42) or the beef cheek bolognese ($34).
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.
