Giant table sized pizzas are some of Singapore’s best07 July, 2012 by Chad
Since 2004, Peperoni Pizzeria has been consistently serving what is possibly Singapore’s favorite pizza. Famous for their humongous XXL pizzas, each platter comes with a generous amount of toppings on a massive 21 inch thin crust pizza.
Peperoni Pizzeria has 4 outlets around Singapore, but somehow we find ourselves returning to their original branch at Greenwood Avenue in Hillcrest Park. There’s a cosy diner atmosphere at the place, which is great. No pretention here. Pizza’s not exactly gourmet cuisine. Instead, the Peperoni Pizzeria at Hillcrest merges a family friendly ambiance with that of a pub.
For those looking to wet their whistle, there’s a ample selection of beers and drinks. The restaurant is well staffed and service is impeccable. Even at its peak on a Friday night we never once saw the bottom of our water glasses. The staff, polite and friendly, which does wonders for the atmosphere.
Peperoni Pizzeria’s signature dish would have to be their family sized XXL pizzas. These serve at least two really hungry people or 4-6 casually each. The pizzas are thin crusted, which are probably half of the reason why they’ve been such a hit with the locals. The rest can be attributed to the generous amount of cheese and toppings thrown densely on top.
You can check out the range of pizzas available at their online menu. There’s a sufficient amount of choices to choose from to make settling on one flavor difficult. Thankfully, you can split a XXL pizza into two if you wish.
Normal and large sized pizzas go for SGD$19 and $23 respectively. The XXL pizzas pictured here cost $50 a pop. The prices are very affordable when you consider that all prices are nett. The house absorbs all GST and service charge here so you leave with pleasant sentiments. Something most places in Singapore ought to learn from.
Personally at least, pizza is more often a necessity, the kind of food you resort calling during overtime or when all other food has run out at a party. It’s not something I crave for particularly. But the pizza served at Peperoni Pizzeria has managed to tick enough of the right points to justify traveling out of the way for it. It’s just that good. If you haven’t already, do drop by Peperoni Pizzeria for a revelation on what pizza should be like.
