Everyone loves pizza. They’re perfect for sharing, and even more so when you ditch fork and knife and just dive into those stringy, cheese-covered slices of heaven.
Here’s the low-down on the best pizza places in Singapore.
1. La Nonna
La Nonna means the grandmother in Italian, and was named so for the kitchen’s ability to serve up unpretentious and authentic Italian pizzas.
Their signature pizza, La Nonna, is a crowd-pleaser: soft egg, black truffle, asparagus, parmesan and mozzarella on a lightly charred, crisp base. To top it off, La Nonna has a 1-for-1 weekday lunch promotion. What are you waiting for?

Despite its name, Pasta Fresca serves authentic Italian pizzas, starting from S$14 for a 9-inch pie. Crowd favourites include their signature pizza, Rucola, Mozzarella Fresca E Pomodorini (cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and rocket leaves).
If you’re lucky, you might score a table by the Singapore River – it’s the perfect waterside dining experience. Their pastas are also made from scratch in-house, so order one to pamper yourself.

What’s a best pizza list without Mozza? Italian chef Mario Batali brought the pizza eatery from Melrose Avenue at Los Angeles, to Marina Bay Sands in 2012, and it seems the hype is here to stay – bookings are essential, particularly at dinnertime.
We recommend the white pizza with speck, fresh buffalo mozzarella, anchovy and oregano (S$30). It’s slightly pricier than your average pizzeria, but we promise it’ll be money well-spent.

This pizzeria serves impressive, 21-inch pizzas (yes, bigger than a face) for S$55. It is enough to feed a group of six. The fun is in getting to mix-and-match up to four toppings per pizza.
We’re quite taken with Diavola (good ol’ peperoni), as well as Pancetta (cured bacon, sliced tomatoes and egg). With five outlets across Singapore, it won’t be difficult accessing one – although three of them are along Bukit Timah Road itself.
Like the other eateries on this list, Spizza is a cosy pizzeria that serves its wood-fire pizzas the way we like it: crisp crust and paper-thin base. They’re juicy and flavourful without being too jelat or salty.
There’s Vittoria, a tangy, spicy option with chicken sausage and fresh chili, and a slew of other options for your picking. Perfect for evening catch-ups. With 7 outlets around Singapore, you’ll surely be able to pay them a visit!
This pizzeria describes itself as an Italian-Southeast Asian Bistro, but little about it seems fusion: its pizzas (S$20 for a 9-inch) are very much Italian, apart from the fact that they top them with ingredients like potato chunks.
If you’re a fan of all things truffle, try the Tartufo E Uovo – a combination of black truffle paste, mozzarella, rocket leaves and its crowning glory: a soft egg, drizzled with truffle oil.

7. Skinny Pizza
Skinny Pizza will never let you down. A must try for the calorie-conscious as it focuses on fresh ingredients and a crust so skinny, it’s crispy and thin.
Lose yourself in the Squid Ink pizza (S$27) – a feast of fresh squid, prawns, tomato salsa and basil on a charcoal-coloured, squid ink crust that crackles like a dream. With weekday lunch sets at $13.95++, we’ll be making our way down.

8. Bella Pizza
It’s no secret that this eatery serves excellent pizzas. While the smoked salmon craze was long overtaken by other food fads (think salted egg yolk croissants), Bella Pizza’s Pizza Salmone (S$22) still works up a treat with mozzarella, smoked salmon, mascarpone cheese and fresh spinach.
