Here’s my updated napoletana style pizza recipe. My previous recipe still works very well, but it requires a lot of fridge space in order for the dough to develop flavour. This recipe uses an overnight poolish which is then added to the main dough. This saves me from having to clear out the fridge to make […]
If you have been reading this blog since 2012, you would know about how crazy I was over pizza at the time. Not just crazy about finding the most authentic wood fired Vera Pizza Napoletana pizza in Singapore, but also in making my own Napoletana style pizza at home.
I thought I was cured of my pizza fixation when I finally published my homemade pizza recipe in 2012. I had spent quite a lot of time researching and experimenting with my pizza dough which culminated in procuring a specialized pizza oven at home. At the time, I thought that that was it. Apart from […]
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 […]
Although it lacks the sexy leopard spots of a Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN), the new pizza crust is a huge improvement over the one I last tasted. It is made with Italian 00 flour and left to rise for 6 hours before it's punched down and left to ferment overnight. It is then stretched by hand and baked in the 280 degree C wood fired oven for 4mins. It won't qualify for VPN status but it is as good if not better than 95% of the pizzas I have eaten at Italian restaurants here in Singapore.
This stall is closed! Finally! A takeaway pizza place that is worth the calories! Good news for pizza lovers who are looking for the thin crust, restaurant style pizza but don’t want to have to sit down in a restaurant to eat it. More importantly, you don’t need to pay GST and service charge on […]
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 […]
