2 words. Cafe Modestos.

A few more words: Not sure if they still serve it but they had this huge thin crust pizza that came with its own table. Woodfired to a light crisp, the toppings are limited, which is actually a good thing, so you don't drown the pie like most places do. From memory, they were one of the first establishments in Singapore that served the good stuff with artichokes and actual slices of premium ham, not that ratty shredded bait you get else where.

Wash that down with a nice brew and you're basically saying "hey I'm classy but I'm still a regular bloke"

edit: sorry, artichokes, not avocados. those two and armadillos confuzzle me at the best of times.

I think you can only get armadillo pizza in Texas

scudscrap - finally got to try one of your suggestions, NY Pizza in Raffles Place

it didn't suck

like Dominos, ok for a quick fix

but they should remove the "NY" from the name

about a 6.5 on the Pizzaometer

I tried Da Paolo a few weeks ago. Very good if you like Naples style pizza.

you can, however, get pavement pizza anywhere there is alcohol.

Here I am surrounded by the most amazing thin-crust pizzas in Italy (I only go for marinara e.g. tomato sauce, garlic and parsley) and all I could think of is fishball noodles... :lol:

I like pizzas from "Mont Calzone" at 38 Pekin Street #01-01 Far East Square. My favourite flavours are Napoletana, Smoked Salmon and Rustica.

hehehe, just enjoying Dominos here again . . . their thin-crust is quite nice, but pizza just ain't pizza withour a good dose of garlic and oregano . . .

sierra2469alpha, if you'd like to try something different the go for Oishi Japanese Pizza - quite unique toppings and they do deliver.

http://www.oishipizza.com/index.htm

and Canadian Pizza also delivers, though I don't find their pizza particularly good:

As for me . . . a good Chicago pie . . . best you can get just near the clocktower - sadly in Chitown only - . . . slurp, slurp

Hello,

I am new to Singapore but have already found the place that makes pizza as close to the real thing as you can get, it's at a restaurant called Amalfi at Clarke's Quay, I have eaten there every 3rd night since I arrived a month ago. I get the margarita pizza, bruschetta and garlic bread and it's out of this world.


Regards,
Rachel

Timbre at the substation has really good pizza. Thin crust and cut into pieces instead of slices so its good for sharing. You can also get two halves of different styles in a single pizza.
