I dare say Alt. Pizza serves some of the best pizzas in Singapore, if thin crust ones with a variety of creative toppings are what you are looking for.
Alt. Pizza – short for ‘Alternative’ – is indeed befitting of its name. Executive Chef Matthew White spent months experimenting to create this dough, ending up with bases that were thin and crusty, yet still retaining a layer of chewiness.
While I am personally used to pizzas for sharing, Alt.’s concept of individual portioned 11” pizza should appeal to many. Initially I thought that an entire pizza on my own would be too filling, but the lightness assured I did not end up feeling too greasy.
The pizza bar, located at the newly revamped Suntec City Tower 4, had a vibrant vibes in the day, with a contrasting chill out ambience with signature craft beers at night.
The energy was ‘New-Yorky’, and thus I was surprised that prices were wallet friendly – $12 to $16 for each pizza.
Being a meat-lover, I was divergently attracted to the colours of Lean & Green ($12) and ordered one vegetarian pizza, topped with baby spinach, roasted squash, basil, broccoli, feta and roasted garlic pesto.
It was my favourite choice that meal, as the sweet freshness of the vegetables and clever mix of sauces made the pizza upliftingly tasty.
I could imagine many customers to like Truffle Shuffle ($14) best, a white sauce based pizza with fennel sausage, roasted mushrooms and onions, drizzled with aromatic white truffle oil. Are you salivating yet? You could jolly smell the fragrance between it arrived.
If creativity is in your blood, or you want to have fun experimenting, I would highly recommend the DIY Pizzas. The ‘Design It Yourself’ options start with $8, with each additional topping costing between $2-$5.
My choice – A White Anchovies, Blue Crab, Blue Cheese, with White Sauce. Wasn’t difficult to see what I am getting at. Using my favourite colours, I wanted to envisage how a White Pizza would turn out to be like. The creation unexpectedly was not too bad, especially if you enjoy a seafood-y taste.
Save some space for their “Frills with Thrills” starters, including hot sauce tossed, beer-brined wings ($12), short rib meatballs ($12), and calamari fritti ($10).
Did I not mention the Pizza Doughnuts ($8) with NUTELLA dipping sauce? Get someone to share the calories, if not you may end up finishing the whole bowl by yourself.
