There's no doubt that pizza, the classic Italian dish is a hit wherever you are.

However, you can find Chicago, New York and Brazil regularly appearing in Best Of lists serving some of the best pizzas in the world. It goes to show that the best pies are not necessarily found only in the land of the dish's origin.

Even in Singapore, you can find really good examples. Here are some favourites. 

 

1. Blue Label Pizza & Wines

Believe the hype, the pizzas here are really good.

While the J-Dog (with pork sausage, bacon, pepperoni, jalapeño, and red sauce) is the most popular, the Travis Supreme is really good. The ground chuck, near-crispy sesame crust, and cheddar-bacon melt just worked together.

The atmosphere adds to the allure - you enter the restaurant from a side alley, the decor is dark and intimate but unpretentious, and the service is amazing. It won’t be the cheapest place to grab a pizza, but it’ll be an experience.

While Pizza Express is a popular option in London for students who go there for a cheap and familiar meal, in Singapore, the quality moves up a few notches. 

There are a few good pizzas on the menu, but try the Pollo Froza. It has chicken with a healthy dose of spicy heat in the form of smoked chilli, dried chilli flakes, jalapeno and chilli oil.

ST Food editor Ong Sor Fern recommends the Crispy Caramel Anchovies pizza: “It’s not a purist’s pizza but it’s good bar food.” 

The pizza has a thin dough topped with umami anchovies, sweet pineapple, clean cucumber and crunchy ikan bilis, as well as loads of melted cheese. 

She adds: “It’s just salty enough that you’ll happily gulp down beer and cider with it. It’s what I would call millennial bait. Teenager food gussied up a bit for working adults.”

One of their most popular-on-social-media items is the Mango Ocean Pizza (seafood with mango chunks on a green tea dough) but foodies are full of praise for the Real BBQ Chicago Pizza, with double mozzarella cheese, string cheese and cream cheese mousse and served with chicken leg bits.
