Get a crack out of Skinny Pizza's thin crusts that come topped with the freshest ingredients - it's an international twist that’s causing a worldwide sensation! Inspired by the ‘Naan’ bread and 'Paper Prata', this is an epic pizza extravaganza of the skinniest proportions. One crack is never enough!
Skinny Pizza doesn't do authentic Italian pizzas. Instead, their low-fat, low-carb, high-fibre pizzas are a localised interpretation of the classics, and a good compromise for those carb-averse craving for a pizza-fix.
1) Squid Ink Pizza ($29): The distinctive taste of squid ink was kept to a minimum, sparkling fresh prawns and squid were baked to perfection, soft with the slightest bit of chew.
2) Black Pepper Prawn Linguine ($32): pasta was slightly overdone but the peppery sauce was spritely. This was textured by diced sauteed prawns, finished with a humongous butterflied prawn grilled to a fragrant, smoky char. Fresh tomato dice kept this from being too heavy
3) Mushroom Risotto ($20): very hearty but not cloying, choc-ful of assorted wild mushrooms, and topped with Parmesan shavings.
Perhaps i came with expectations and that ruined everything: everything which made the pizza attractive such as chewy crust and gooey cheese and savoury meats were absent. Now, i understand that the pizza here is supposed to be a different, healthier, thin crust version. But its only fair to expect that they might do a healthy pizza that can taste almost as good as the sinful one in its own special way. Alas, the pizza was mediocre in my opinion
Without sufficient crust (it tasted like crispy keropok) the toppings:crust ratio was off. I tried the Satay Chicken one, which was so overwhelming with the peanut sauce spread all over (clearly not a good experience for me). We also ordered the beef bolognaise which was, for me, less disappointing; but the tomatoes didn't taste fresh (had such a medicated taste and smell i couldnt convince myself to eat)
Truffle fries was such a let down because for its price, the serving of crispy fries with only truffle oil was disappointing. I had paid less for other truffle fries in restaurant that came with truffle shavings, generous amount of truffle cream and parmesan cheese. Skinny pizza is clearly not a place to satisfy a truffle fries craving.
On the bright side, service was good but there was a tad too few servers and a little hard to call for attention. Water was diligently refilled.
Maybe this could be a place for people who find the pizza we know to be absolutely sinful. But for me, I think I would want to go somewhere else for pizza heaven.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
