Peperoni Pizzeria pales in comparison

{ Singapore - November 2011 }

After blogging about the Da Michele's pizza in Naples, I felt like having Italian pizza. So, we went off in search of an Italian pizzeria in Singapore, and ended up in Peperoni Pizzeria. With the Italian name and simple decor in green, white and red (the colour of the Italian flag), it looked promising.

We ordered Caprese salad that we have came to love in Italy. A simple salad with just tomatoes, mozzarella and rocket salad, I love the simplicity and the freshness of the cheese. Not a big fan of rocket salad, though.

In Peperoni Pizzeria, you can order two toppings for each pizza. So, we ended up having four toppings on our two large pizza - Margherita (mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and oregano), Frutti di Mare (prawns, clams, scallops, squid rings and fish), Prosciutto Crudo di Parma (parma ham and rocket salad) and Suprema (shitake mushrooms, chicken sausage, onions and red chilli).

If I have had the pizza last year, I would have said that the thin crispy crust was pretty good. However, having had the simple and yet oh-so-good pizza in Naples, nothing else compares. So, unfortunately, the pizza tasted bland, the crust too dry and there were not enough mozzarella and tomatoes in the Margherita. I mean, just compare the photo with the one we had in Naples!

I am not sure if this means that all pizza will pale in comparison with the pizza we had in Naples. I hope not. At least there is one pizzeria in Singapore that is a member of the True Neapolitan Pizza Association (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana). Maybe, just maybe, it would be able to live up to the expectation.
