I haven’t had Spizza’s Pizza until early this year. That was my first go at it, and it was love at first taste. By far, it’s my Favorite Pizza in Singapore. I think the specifics of the toppings aren’t that much of an importance for a Pizza review, since there is such a wide range of toppings available, and individual preference counts for a lot in choosing one. Notwithstanding that, I will still be going through in brief details what I had.
I have been frequenting the Club Street outlet (since it’s so near to my workplace). And lately, they have an ongoing promotion of $10 for a treat of 10-inch pizza (8 slices). It is going on indefinitely. Only valid from Mondays – Thursdays, 12pm – 2.30pm though. If you are working in that area, please do drop by. You can have a filling meal for less than $10, at a restaurant, air-conditioned, and satisfied.
In general, I guess the reasons why I love Spizza’s Pizzas are (1) its crust being just the right thickness – one that is not too crispy and thin that you can’t taste a thing, and not too thick to battle its taste with the toppings, and that (2) the toppings are very much flavorful, not too overpowering, but adequate for a party in your mouth. Further, they have a nicely decorated and furnished restaurant to dine-in. Psh, that spells W-I-N in capital letters.
Quinta :: Tomato, Mozzarella, Egg with Black Truffle Paste. While it looks and sounds promising, it fell short a little. I thought the combination of toppings is quite a given awesomeness, but the Black Truffle kind of spoiled it a bit. Maybe because it was black truffle, and not a top quality one, it was towards the smelly side more than the indulgently pungent smell, if you know what I mean, you know, with truffles.
Ursula :: This beauty, topped with Spinach, Smoked Salmon and Capers, one the other hand, is the hot favorite. This is a close-my-eyes-and-order piece of pizza. The chunks of mascarpone complements the smoked salmon so well it is like they were made for each other.
Olivia :: For a simple pizza with Salami and Fresh Chili, it was quite a surprise I love it quite a lot. Simply because it’s generally different in taste in comparison with most of its other counterparts. It’s salty, yet quite the spicy. Two of my favorite tastes. It not being complicated also means that you can distinctively taste the toppings.
Franca :: With Porcini Mushrooms and Pancetta Bacon, it can’t go too wrong, can it? It is probably the best bet for a conservative eater.
Calamari ($13++) :: Though it can’t beat Marche’s Calamari, it is not too bad either. My colleagues absolutely loved it (almost to the level of the Ursula Pizza), but I thought it was only alright. My take is that it can be too reliant on the sauce provided.
