Craving pizza? Head to one of these dough-tally awesome pizza joints...
When it comes to feeding our kids, we’d say pizza is one of the absolute faves. Sure, at home we regularly try meat-free options the whole fam loves and even finger food for all ages. But when it comes to eating at our fave family-friendly restaurants, they’d happily eat slice after slice of – you guessed it – pizza, baby! However, all pizzas were not created equal. You’ve got to have moreish and authentic crusts, paired with lip-smacking toppings that we can also steal a slice of. In agreement? Then read on for our list of the best pizza restaurants in Singapore we go dough-tally wild for…
Plank Sourdough Pizza
Hands up if you’re a fan of the scrummy fresh bread from Baker & Cook, one of fave bakeries. If so, you’ll go gaga over its sister restaurant: Plank Sourdough Pizza. With soon-to-be six locations around Singapore, you’re never too far from some of the best pizza around. Why, you ask? Well, the wood ovens, fresh ingredients and fab atmosphere makes for a cracking meal out with your crew. In terms of our favourite location, the recently opened Dempsey branch at Core Collective tops the list. On sunny days, the outdoor playground is perfect for kids to blow off some steam while they wait for their food to arrive.
Ok, so this one is a bit of cheat as Alt. Pizza is more set up for home delivery (although we did eat in at the Holland Village branch). However, trust us when we say this is still one of the best pizza restaurants in Singapore. Hands down we wished we lived a bit closer! Perfect thin-crust pizzas and a wide range of scrummy toppings, this is a fam family-friendly pick if you can’t face heading out. Pondering where’s good pizza near you? There are branches in Holland Village, Katong, Balestier and Robertson Quayside.
Peperoni Pizzeria has a rep with the kids as one of the best pizza restaurants around. And for good reason – its bistros are designed with small humans in mind and it consistently plates up tasty pizza. We love: the fact it does XXL pizzas for nights we can’t face cooking or getting out our PJs. They love: the kids’ set meal – for $14, they get a main, drink and gelato. With seven outlets islandwide, you’re never too far away from a slice of the action.
Enjoying a day on Sentosa? Take in the beach with a side of pizza action at Trapizza on Siloso Beach. Parents will love sipping on a cold one, soaking up the sun and eating all the kids’ crusts. As for the little ones, they’ll be making a beeline straight for the water play area… although we’re guessing that’s not an option until Phase 2 ends. However, the cute pig-shaped pizza should make up for it. Perfecto!
Trapizza, Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa, 10 Siloso Walk, Singapore 099538
We’ve said it time and time again: we can’t get enough of this place for the bouncy castle action! While that’s yet to resume (thanks, Covid-19), it’s still worth a trip to the very family-friendly Cafe Melba for its cracking pizzas. Both branches of Cafe Melba consistently serve up deliciousness for every single one of us, every single time. Oh and also: kids eat free on Mondays!
Cafe Melba, 90 Goodman Road, Block N #01-56, Singapore 439053 and 1 Stars Avenue #03-01, Singapore 138507
It’s fair to say we’ve pretty much worked our way through the entire menu at Jamie’s Italian. Our verdict? Pukka! Definitely one of the best pizza restaurants in Singapore for authentic, Italian offerings. Oh, and if you’re parents of fussy eaters, then sleep easy knowing the base sauce has seven hidden veg in it. Winning!
Jamie’s Italian, 583 Orchard Road, #01-01/04 Forum, Singapore 238884
Got littlies? British export Pizza Express is one of the best pizza restaurants around – hello, dough balls! We’re super grateful for the colouring pencils and activity sheets to keep those little hands out of mischief, too. Change of plans but still want your fix? Get islandwide delivery courtesy of Oddle. Altogether now: yessss! With six locations in Singapore, you’re bound to be within reach of great pizza near you. Top tip: we’ve had the tastiest pizzas from this chain at the Scotts Square branch – the Holland Village branch didn’t deliver on the crunch factor both times we’ve been.
Cibo Italiano Singapore
Got older kids? Take all your rumbling tummies to Cibo Italiano Singapore on River Valley Road. It’s more of an intimate space (while doable, it’s not the best for rowdy toddlers) and most tables are outdoors, so expect to dine alfresco. It’s authentic, delicious and we keep going back for more. Especially great for a date night, too!
