A good pizza can be the ultimate comfort food.
Unfortunately, not all of us have the budget (or time!) to fly across the ocean to Italy just for some good quality pizza. Luckily, there are plenty of delicious pizza places in Singapore. Scroll through the gallery to save your flight fare and find out where are the places that sell the best pizzas here!

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.
Opening hours: Weekdays noon to 2 p.m., 6 p.m. to midnight; Saturday 6 p.m. to midnight

Surprisingly, this Korean noodle house has a non-traditional pizza that has earned the raves of millennial patrons.
The Ninae Pizza-Spinach is a hit with its simple combination of spinach and cherry tomatoes, with dollops of cream cheese and generous drizzles of honey on a paper-thin crust.
Opening hours: Weekdays 11 a.m. to 10.p.m, weekends 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

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.
Opening hours: 11.30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

We recommend the Crispy Caramel Anchovies pizza – although it’s not a purist’s pizza, 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. It’s just salty enough that you’ll happily gulp down beer and cider with it. It’s what we would call millennial bait. Teenager food gussied up a bit for working adults.
Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., Friday and Saturday 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., Sunday 6 p.m. to midnight
1 Old Parliament Lane, #01-04 The Arts House, 179429
The star pizza at this Italian restaurant is the Tartufata. It has mozzarella, porcini mushroom, smoked scamorza and truffle. It seduces with the enticing aroma of truffles but it’s the bold umami and cheesy flavours that win stomachs over.
Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., Friday 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturday 1 p.m. to midnight, Sunday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The largest Korean pizza chain opened its first outlet late last year at Northpoint City, and followed up with another outlet at Bugis+ last month (April 2018).
Its popularity is bolstered by the fanciful, Insta-ready pizzas. 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.
Opening hours: 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
201 Victoria Street, #04-03/04, Bugis+, 188067
