The founders of this affordable pizza spot at Jalan Riang began their venture with a passion for true-blue Italian pizzas and pastas, made with “simple, hearty and fresh ingredients”. And that’s exactly what La Pizzaiola is all about.

From the classic Hawaiian to the creative Pizza Salad with mozzarella cubes, onion, tomato and more tossed in mustard vinaigrette and served on their signature focaccia, La Pizzaiola offers authentic Italian tastes at surprisingly inexpensive prices, great for a casual meal with your family or friends.

3. Cugini

Located along the hip Club Street, Cugini is a quaint little Italian place, decked out in white and shades of sky blue, which vaguely reminds us of the picturesque Santorini. But before we get carried away with thoughts of a holiday, we have to mention how delicious the pizzas at Cugini are.

The La Bufalina is perhaps the simplest pizza on the menu, but it packs a sumptuous punch. Even though it just has tomato sauce, basil, and a dollop of of buffalo mozzarella, these fresh ingredients come together so well it makes you wonder if pizza needs any other toppings at all. Apart from that, meat lovers should try the Crudo e Rucola, with a heap of Pharma ham on top.

Address: 87 Club St, Singapore 069455

Opening hours:

Sun to Thurs 12-2.45pm, 6.30-10.30pm

4. Motorino Pizza

Motorino Pizza is a casual, neighbourhood pizzeria from The Big Apple. Fittingly, the walls of this well-lit space is adorned with pictures of pizza and New York, with a fascinating open kitchen where you have full view of the huge pizza oven where your meal gets cooked.

While more and more pizza spots are offering the thin crust version, Motorino is well-loved for their amazingly doughy and chewy crust, which is totally worth braving the Clarke Quay area crowds for. The folks at Motorino can even make brussel sprouts taste good– brussel sprouts is one of their popular signature toppings! If that isn’t a good pizza, we don’t know what is.

Address: 3A River Valley Road, Merchant’s Court #01-01A, 179020

Opening hours: 11.30am-11pm daily

5. Extra Virgin Pizza

With no preservatives, frozen toppings, additives or hydrogenated oils, Extra Virgin Pizza serves up both great taste and nutrition. Their neapolitan pizzas are carefully handmade, producing the distinct ‘leopard spots’, charred bits that give the crust its unique texture and a delicious crunch.

Importing their dough all the way from Italy, their pizzas are as authentic as they come. Try the meaty Spotted Pig, topped with pepperoni, smoked bacon and sausage; the Pistachio Pesto, an unusual but tasty combination; the addictive Spicy Pepperoni and more.

Address: 8 Marina View, #01-04 Asia Square, 018960

Opening hours: Mon to Fri 10am-10pm

6. Jamie’s Italian

Food connoisseurs rejoiced when the world renowned celebrity chef set up shop in Singapore. While all the offerings at Jamie’s Italian are worth trying, the establishment caught our attention with their hand stretched pizzas and crispy thin crusts.

Highlights include the classic Margherita that is so simple yet so delicious, made with sweet tomato sauce and fresh basil; the Chili Freak which tantalises your tongue with their secret spicy sauce, and the Courgette Polio with roasted chicken, courgette and olives.

Address: #01-01/04 Forum Shopping Mall, 583 Orchard Road, Singapore 23884

Opening hours: Mon to Fri 12-9pm

Now that you’ve experienced some authentic Italian pizza, why not try some Bavarian treats in Singapore.
