Pizzas have come a long way in Singapore since I was a kid. My first encounter with the pizza was with Pizza Hut which introduced Singaporeans to the all American pie back in 1981. Soon after, the local chain, Milanos began to cash in on the craze and I can still remember ordering their heart […]
Ristorante Italiano Pietro: Yet another Ulu Italian Eatery!
Back in 2009 I wrote about Cacio e Pepe which was a story about an Italian restaurant in an “Ulu” (remote) location serving pretty decent Italian food. Cacio e Pepe has since moved to yet another ulu location on the other side of the island and from last I heard, they are still doing quite […]

Singapore’s first VPN Pizza Margharita (Photo taken at Pizzeria L’Opretta) I don’t usually make announcements on this blog but this piece of news is something I have been waiting for over two years.

Report and photos by JoaoWhite Margherita pizza with traditional Neapolitan crust. Look how fat the cornicione is! I’ll make no secret of the fact that my first visit toSole Pomodorochanged the way I perceived pizza crusts. Up to that point I had only ever eaten just-palatable pizza crusts, and was of the misguided opinion that […]
Peperoni Pizzaria: Great place for a family Pizza and Sunday breakfast!
The XXL 21″ Pizza $50 nett There was only one place for pizzas when I was growing up and that was Pizza Hut. Back in those days, I remember they used to have a super big family sized pizza that could feed our whole family of three hungry boys. I even remember that they came […]
Egg, guanciale, bitter greens and gabna cauda pizza $24 What is your reaction when you first saw the photo of this pizza? Frankly, I have never seen a pizza with a crust this size before. It’s so big, you can almost hear an echo when you crunch into it. Most Singaporeans love thin crust pizza […]

L’Operetta: Singapore’s first Vera Pizza Napoletana
A VPN pizza is supposed to be cooked between 60 to 90 seconds! When I first wrote about the Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN) certification back in 2009, I never thought I would see a VPN certified pizza in Singapore so soon. But as you can see from the video, it looks like Singapore will get […]
Sole Pomodoro Pizzeria: Now this is what I call Pizza!
Buffalo Margharita Pizza $24 You might not know it, but aside from hawker food, I am particularly obsessed with pizzas. The obsession all started when I read about the Vera Pizza Napoletana which is an association set up to preserve the original pizza created in Naples. There are of course many styles of Pizzas even […]
OTTO Ristorante: They say the Pastas here are great!
Hokkaido scallop carpaccio with saffron vinaigrette and black Taggia olives powder $28 My last Italian meal at another well known Italian restaurant was quite a disaster. Well, to be fair, it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great. To me the key to any great restaurant is the chef, no matter if he comes from Italy, […]
