I know a lot of people love thin crust pizzas. But just how thin is in? A couple of weekends ago, we spotted this very new shop at Suntec City, called Skinny Pizza. The crust is so thin, it's practically a lavash cracker. Any thinner and it'll be a papadum!
This is the 12-inch Wild Truffled Mushroom pizza (S$18). Generous toppings of roasted mushrooms, garlic, truffled oil and Italian parsley - nice and luscious at first bite, but became rather heavy and cloying thereafter. We couldn't decide if the thin, dry cracker crust worked. Hubby didn't like it much, but I'm a sucker for anything crunchy.
The menu is small, and even then, not everything is available (they're just warming up operations). In fact, they didn't have the smaller 8" pizza and are already thinking of phasing that out to streamline things. I wish they'd keep that, because if they had that, we'd have ordered two different pizzas, instead of one large one.
The soups were a hit and a miss. Both of us found the red pepper and tomato soup too tart, with a strange bitter aftertaste. It was like drinking Tabasco.
Sweet corn crab soup fared a little better, but still too sweet for me. Hubby liked this one though.
We found hilarious brochures for STRIP, the Spa Esprit waxing chain, which is just next door I think. Skinny Pizza is also under the same umbrella group. I hope they manage to iron out their teething issues. That's why I waited til 2 weeks before posting this. The manager was very hospitable and asked for a lot of detailed feedback from us. They really want to make this work, and I do hope they manage to finetune the menu and operations successfully.
