Here’s where to find the island’s top slices
Light crusts, rich tomato bases, fresh toppings: that's amore, pizza-lovers. We’ve eaten our way around the island to find the best slices; pizza cravings are coming your way.
At Sentosa's newest beach club, you will have enough to keep you busy between the three swimming pools, a well-stocked bar, beachfront, cabanas, bean bags and more. You will definitely not go hungry here with the number of Western and Balinese eats. While their menu is packed with lunch, brunch and dinner options, you can never go wrong with pizza. The Jalapeno Pesto Chicken ($25.80) is spicy, moreish and delicious and loaded with chicken, jalapenos, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic.
Another beach-side favourite is Coastes on Siloso Beach. It is the go-to spot if you are looking for a relaxed meal with the family. There are only four pizza options on the menu, but toppings are family-favourites like the Hawaiian ($22) with Ham and Pineapple or the more exotic Porcini and Parma Ham with Arugula ($26). Kids love Coastes as they are kept busy with the sand and water, both of which are safe and spotlessly clean. Shaded and alfresco spots allow you to each your meal while enjoying the beach breeze.
If a restaurant has the word 'pizza' in its name, you can definitely expect a well-done pie. Located at the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort, we love this Italian beach-side for several reasons. The yummy thin-crust pizzas cooked in a custom-built wood-fired oven are the top draw though. Pizza varieties range from the typical Margherita ($22) to the fiery Inferno ($23) of smoked chicken, roasted capsicum and chilli flakes. The family-friendly restaurant is equipped with a play corner, water fountains for splashing about and colouring sheets and crayons to keep little fingers occupied. They also serve 16-inch family-style pizzas ($44) where you can pick your own favourite toppings.
Posh pies can be had at this all-day Italian pizzeria. Flavours are kept authentic with their Italian-imported ingredients. We particularly like the Bianca pizza, made with a focaccia crust, Puglia's soft burrata cheese, 20-month-cured Parma ham and rucola salad. Their signature pie is the Oro Nero with seafood flavours of codfish, white clams, Sicilian mussels and trout roe. It is dusted with gold powder for that extra oomph.
Bright and cheery, SolePomodoro at Sentosa Cove’s Quayside Isle has all the trappings of an Italian restaurant menu. Pizza is fired out of a custom-built wood-fired pizza oven that occupies pride of place. If one of their ten varieties does not appeal, you can opt to D-I-Y your pizza where you pick the toppings like mushrooms, artichokes, rocket leaves, tomatoes ($3.50 each) and more.
Hankering for a good ol' pizza pie after a day out at Resorts World Sentosa's attractions? Tino' Pizza Cafe is dependably good, and prices are accessible. All of their pies are freshly baked, and hand-tossed and toppings are skewed towards unique and adventurous. The range stretches from crowd-pleasers like the Formaggio (blue cheese, parmesan, mozzarella, walnuts and honey) to pizzas with a topping of fresh D24 or Mao Shan Wang durians. Prices are affordable at $14 onwards for a pie.
