Skinny Pizza Hot
The latest outlet offers its namesake flatbread base with 17 toppings to make up savoury/sweet favourites like the braised veal with onion jam and sage. Modern desserts are also included in the menu.
Still lovin' it
You know the phrase - "Haters gon' hate".
It's true, I know most people aren't fans of this place, but I love the fact that I can have my pizza, and still feel good about my weight after I'm done. The pizzas are made with a super skinny crust, hence the name of the eatery. Not all the pizzas are good of course - my favorites are still the truffle mushroom and the squid ink pizza.
The truffle mushroom can get a little "jelat" after awhile though, because of the strong truffle smell that is infused with the mushrooms. So if you're ordering this, I'd suggest you order to share. The squid ink pizza tastes really good, especially when you sprinkle it with chilli flakes. A specially concocted sauce is used as the base instead of the standard tomato paste, sort of creamy, but I haven't quite figured out till this day what on earth it is yet. My best guess is mayonnaise with squid ink.
The best part about the pizzas is that they come with generous toppings of rocket salad - possibly the only leafy greens on earth that smell so good.
Other dishes served up include pasta, soups, and of course, they have a dessert menu as well.
Haters gon' hate, but I know I'll definitely keep coming back here for more.

Thin Crust Pizza Lovers, This Is For You!
In terms of pizza, are you in the deep crust camp, or the thin crust camp? If you belong to the latter, then you’ll love Skinny Pizza.
At Skinny Pizza, it’s all about the toppings. Their pizzas are all made with a signature paper-thin crust, so thin that it’s almost like a pappadum, and each pizza is heaped with a hearty mix of different toppings. Their creative and delicious pizza options include crowd-pleasers such as the creamy-sweet Smoked Turkey Swiss and The English Breakfast (which comes with an soft-baked egg in the middle!). If you love mushrooms or anything with truffle oil, order their Wild Truffled Mushroom. Imagine roasted mushrooms richly spiked with the heady flavor of truffle, served on a cracker thin crust. As a truffle addict myself, this was utter BLISS.
Skinny Pizza focuses on offering diet-friendly yet hearty pizzas, made with good-quality ingredients. Although on the pricey side, with each pizza being priced between $18-$29, I’m still willing to fork out the money. Plus, they’re substantial enough to share. Skinny Pizza’s take on pizza is unconventional, and is something that you’ll either love or hate.
This place is kinda expensive in my opinion, but the food is gooood.
Really love the truffle mushroom pizza - it's delicious! You might not want to get a whole pizza to yourself though, you'll get sick of it, so get it to share. 2-3 slices is divine, any more and the law of diminishing marginal returns kicks in hahaha.
There's also many other interesting flavours, and I like the risotto here as well.
Good for Sunday Brunch
My husband and I have been to their Raffles City branch several times. This place is good for people who are craving for pizza, but want to avoid the toppings and excessive oil that comes from the usual pizza stores. Their selling point, really, is their thin and crunchy pizza base.
I’ve tried several flavors from Skinny Pizza, but this is the first one I’ve documented here. Their ham and cheese pizza was satisfying, perfect for our Sunday brunch. Although the pizza was quite dry (ie. no pizza sauce that we’re used to) and the shavings of parmesan cheese was not quite enough, the mix of flavors from the ham, the vegetables, and I assume some olive oil, was good enough.
Their truffle fries is always a must-order for me. I’d go back to Skinny Pizza just for this.
Price is reasonable enough for the quality of ingredients used. I wouldn’t go here on a daily basis, maybe every couple of weekends.
Low-carb Pizza, anybody?
I'll admit that I've always known that Skinny Pizza existed, but never got around to actually trying it. I've always had the preconceived notion that pizzas are calorie, oil and fat-laden, which is true most of the time. Skinny Pizza, however, serves thin-crusted low-carb pizza that comes in pretty exotic flavours unlike your usual Hawaiian ones.
We had a ginger butter chicken pizza & also indulged in a side of sweet potato nibblets. This was good, but not great. The rocket leaves were a bit of an overkill after a while. The squid ink's one apparently very popular although it didn't appeal to me initially. Might try this next time though.
For sides, I'm glad we decided to get the sweet potato over truffle fries, because they were awesome! It was lightly glazed with sugar frostings & sesame seeds and wasn't too sweet. A side goes at $7 for one, but 3 at $15. If you can't decide which to get, you can consider this! We would've gotten that but thought it might be too much.
Not exactly a place I would come back to, but I'd give them tops for their well-made crust.
Pizza That Packs Freshness And Flavour
Skinny Pizza prides itself on offering the thinest pizza crust, comparable to crackers or Papadum that shatters when bit, topped with fresh, wholesome and healthy ingredients, which results in great flavour. With this, Skinny Pizza has hit on a winning formula of low-carbohydrates / low-carb, healthy, and light, non-filling pizzas, which appeal to the health-conscious, vegetarians, and many females.
Ambience at Skinny Pizza is casual, but cramped. Furniture is placed quite closely, which results in conversations being able to carry to the next table, raising the ambient noise level in the restaurant. The lighting, while sufficient, tends to be slightly dim. I also noticed that the pizza pans tend to be rather large in comparision to the table, as one pizza pan alone takes up about half the available table space.
Service staff during peak periods at Skinny Pizza tends to be somewhat rushed and brusque. This isn't a place where you'll be able to converse with the staff serving you, but they're friendly enough, and also able to make recommendations. Beyond that, the service here is pretty average, and while I've yet to have a bad experience, I haven't had any memorable or outstanding ones either.
The famous wafer thin and crispy pizza crust at Skinny Pizza was inspired by roti prata / naan. There are slighly over 20 varieties of pizza on the menu, and most are quite healthy. Skinny Pizza also offers various pasta dishes and side dishes, though the range available is rather limited. Overall, the restaurant is rather light on meat, and quite suitable for vegetarians / seafood lovers. However, prices here are slighly higher than other pizza joints.
The Wild Truffled Mushroom Pizza is a house signature dish, and also the most popular pizza on the menu. Garnishings of roasted shitake mushrooms, roasted button mushrooms, garlic, wild rocket leaves, onions, truffle mash, truffle oil and fresh parmesan cheese piled on a thin, crispy, cracker-like / biscuit-like pizza base. The earthy aroma of truffles hits you the minute this is placed on the table, and each bite is blissful, packing full-bodied flavour. It can get a little overwhelming nearing the end of the dish though, due to the incredible richness.
I liked the slight char on the Grilled Corn On The Cob, but thought it would be easier to consume if the ends were removed. As it is, eating it was messy, and the sour cream did little to enhance the flavour. The Sweet Potato Nibblets were thick cut and firm, but I felt it could have done with more seasoning, as it was a little bland. The Quarter Metre Long Chicken Sausage was firmly packed and meaty, and I liked the heat from the spice within.
Awesome tasting pizza but too small a portion
Skinny Pizza markets itself as a restaurant that makes pizzas with a really thin crust (hence the name). As a fan of thin crust pizzas, I think that they did a pretty good job as it helps bring out the flavor of the other ingredients of the pizza. They have many interesting flavored pizzas, which is refreshing when you're sick of eating yet another hawaiian or pepperoni pizza.
My personal favorite is the smoked turkey swiss pizza, where the blueberry compliments the turkey really well. The problem is that thin crusted pizzas tend not to be filling so if you're a big eater, you might need to order additional side dishes to fill your belly.
Don't be afraid to try other dishes as well, as they are pretty decent too. I've tried their sliders which I have to say are one of the better ones that I've tried.
La Dolce Pizza
Skinny Pizza is not doing itself any favours with such a choice of name. I detest diet food (Nutrasweet and Equal taste like poop) with a passion, and I immediately wrote off Skinny Pizza as one of those health food places for the fat or frigid to dine at.
Fortunately, my friend insisted on dinner at Skinny Pizza. The “Skinny” refers to the thin, crisp crust, not an effort to reduce calories. I detest the American bastardization of the pizza (cheese-stuffed thick crusts are vulgar to the extreme) as much as I detest Equal, so I was delighted by the Skinny Pizza’s decidedly un-American paper-thin crust. Bellisimo!
I ordered the squid ink seafood pizza. No cheap processed food ingredients here, everything is the real deal from the calamari to the rocket leaves. Quite delicious indeed.
just for the novelty
When it comes to Pizza, it's all about indulgence. Forget about the calories. Forget about getting fat. Pizza is one of the best comfort food you will come across. Yes carbs, whatever. Suffer any emotional trauma and have a slice of it. You'll feel better. So when the concept of Skinny Pizza comes to mind, I was baffled. Could it possibly be as good or even better than the usual Pizzas you see?
Well, no. As my title says, it's just for the novelty. And it'll have been alright if the pricing was okay but it wasn't. Paying more for less crust? Doesn't seem right to me! I concede that the food here is alright. My friend and I tried the Good Ol' Ham and Cheese. The toppings were fresh and of really high quality (using real Cheeses instead of the processed, grated stuff), but I was left really dissatisfied. The lack of crust left me still ravenous. To me, pizzas should be left its traditional standard. I want the gooey, melted cheese on top of them. And the crust that will leave us a few KGs fatter.
Trust me, it's really not worth it. If you're trying it for the sake of health, just please. You're eating a pizza, might as well go all the way.
Really thin crusts
First of all, I am not a fan of pizzas. I am one of those people that request for cheese to be separated from the pizza on the rare times that I order pizza. Skinny Pizza accommodated my request for the cheese to be separated and served a rather substantial amount of cheese on the side.
The reason why I'd gone to Skinny Pizza was for a surprise birthday celebration. The staff played along really well and the surprise was well carried out. So if you're deciding on a different place for a birthday surprise-cum-gathering, you could consider Skinny Pizza.
Anyway, I ordered the squid ink pizza ($25) and the english breakfast pizza ($24). Both were unique flavours and tasted good to me. The crust was really thin and very crispy. I also ordered their fish & chips ($20) and truffle fries ($7). Even though they were supposed to specialise in making Skinny Pizza, I felt that their fish & chips were better than some restaurants' like Swensens. In fact, I would go back to Skinny Pizza for their Fish n Chips just because it's that good! The batter was well made and the tartar sauce went splendid with the fish.
Skinny pizza is definitely over-rated and personally I feel that their pizzas are nothing worth raving about. The crust is too thin and does not fill me up properly even though the toppings were generous. I will never visit this place if I was famished and looking for something substantial to fill me up. I consider this place expensive and I will not return again. For the price I paid, I would rather visit an authentic Italian restaurant for wood fire pizza.
Long waiting time for the pizza to be served but good service staffs. The service staffs were friendly and made us feel very welcomed but the pizza was down right disappointing. It is prefect for those on a diet and have too much spare cash on hand.
Their dark chocolate ice cream wasn't fantastic and was too thick in my opinion. Even though it was a single scoop, i felt that it was too much and the taste was overwhelming.
Churrous served by them werent the usual type you find in Australia. It is Spanish style if I'm not wrong and it's much crunchier/crispy instead of the familiar Aussie style chewiness.
In short, it wasnt entirely a bad experience. I would deem this as a 'new-age' pizza place and I don't see myself returning ever again. I still prefer the usual thin pizza served at other pizza eateries.
