[Review] Skinny Pizza (Westgate Mall, Jurong East, Singapore)
Pizza! I couldn’t live without it. Recently, I shared a pizza at Skinny Pizza in Singapore (Westgate Mall, Jurong East). This is my Skinny Pizza review.
Its style of pizza uses a crunchy, cracker like base instead of the doughy base that pizza is known for. This is probably what makes it so “skinny,” because it will have fewer calories than a traditional pizza crust (even thinner than thin crust). I’m a New Yorker, so I’m a little tough to impress when it comes to pizza.
There were lots of options for pizzas, and other items too, but we only focused on the pizza. Most ranged from $23 to $30.
We ordered an English Breakfast pizza to share. It was enough for the two of us. It had tomato sauce, arugula/rocket, swiss cheese, bacon, and an egg in the middle.
It didn’t feel like we were eating pizza. A bit messy, there were a lot of items on top of the cracker-like crust. You couldn’t hold the slices and eat them. You were forced to cut pieces. In this sense, it felt more like we were just eating salad with some other things.
The cracker crust itself is an interesting idea, but didn’t have much flavor and didn’t seem to add much to the overall experience except to serve as a base to put toppings on. It was more of a hassle to eat it because it got soft from the sauce. It wasn’t sturdy enough to be held in your hand. (What kind of pizza can’t be eaten by hand?!)
It was fun, though. The sauce, toppings, and cheese were good quality so I would go back. If you are a pizza purist, though, I wouldn’t have high expectations.
