List of Pizza Places/Pizzerias in Singapore

Back in the day when I wasn’t so enlightened as to all things pizza, I only thought a single type of pizza existed, and that type of pizza was those served by large chain stores ubiquitous with pizza. Then came the thin-crust pizzas. And after I went to Italy, I realized how diverse the pizza culture can be. I think Americans and Italians have a different attitude towards pizza –

Wholemeal Pizza with Pepperoni and Basil Pesto

Ever since I saw Swee San’s Christmas Giveaway post, I’ve been dying to enter because well, you stand a chance of winning Pantry Magic vouchers! How cool is that?

Travel Tuesdays #1 – Pizza Napoletana, from Napoli

Pizza Napoletana, from Sorbillo – check out the lovely thick cornicione (crust) omg! I’ve decided to abandon the Wordless Wednesdays endeavour – yup it was really short-lived BUT I’ve decided to start my very own Travel Tuesdays! I was very privileged to spend a year traveling around Europe a while back, and it was a year well spent, even though my bank account is quite bare now. Because I’ve been
