Pizzeria Mozza is an Italian Pizza Restaurant by celebrity chefs Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali with restaurateur and winemaker Joseph Bastianich. It’s the second outlet after the main Los Angeles restaurant, and it opened in Singapore last 2010.
Most Filipinos are proud to eat here because the executive chef in the Singapore branch is a Filipina–Chef Karla Mendoza. Its fine dining counterpart–Osteria Mozza–again made it to #45 of the 50 World’s Best in Asia in 2015.
Here’s what to expect and what to order at Pizzeria Mozza…
The main focus is the pizzas, and they are handcrafted and made to order (up to 35 minutes waiting time).
The best one is these slow roasted cherry tomatoes on top of Burrata cheese dish with fresh basil and olive oil!
You can also have the bruschetta with mashed white beans but is just a bit heavy and may ruin your appetite for the pizza.
For something different, check out the Pig’s Ears fries. There’s a bit of both the sliminess and crunch from the cartilage in the pig’s ears. A bit addicting.
Squash blossoms stuffed with homemade ricotta cheese. I love the crispy outside and creamy cheese inside.
The spinach salad was light with a bit of lemon and cheese, with a nutty and salty flavor from the anchovy.
This is like the pizza version of Mozza Caprese with burrata, slow roasted tomato, and Sicilian oregano in a Neapolitan-style pizza.
We also love the classic combination of Prosciutto ham with arugula to cut through the taste of the meat.
We all agreed that this is the best pizza among the three we ate, with simple toppings of tomatoes, olives, anchovies, mozzarella, and capers. The pizza is cut into four big triangles so it’s best to fold the slices when you eat them.
Congrats to Executive Chef Karla Mendoza for the continued success of Mozza in Singapore!
It’s the best dessert for us! Imagine salted caramel with actual salted peanuts and a soft sweet marshmallow on a thin wafer crunch.
The butterscotch was a bit heavy and rich. It’s best eaten together with the biscotti.
The homemade ice cream is also good if you’d like to end with a nice, sweet finish.
PIZZERIA MOZZA is officially one of my favorite places to eat in Singapore for good Neapolitan-style pizza!
I recommend starting with their Mozza Caprese, the Fried Squash Blossoms with Ricotta, and the Spinach, Ricotta Salata, Lemon, Pine Nuts & Anchovy.
For pizza, order the simple flavors: Napolitana: Tomatoes, Olives, Anchovies, Mozzarella & Fried capers or Burrata, Slow Roasted Tomato & Sicilian Oregano. For meat lovers, try the Prosciutto di Parma, Rucola, Tomato & Mozzarella.
End with the Caramel Copetta: Marshmallow Sauce & Salted Peanuts for dessert!
Budget about S$50/head. You can split the bill up to 3 credit cards.
Make sure to get a reservation if you want to eat during the first seating at lunch time.

P.S. I heard that Chef Mario Batali is finally coming to Manila! It’s 90% confirmed–they’re just figuring out how to properly import ingredients to Manila. I wonder which hotel he’ll be housed in–Discovery Primea or Shangri-La? Please share if you know. 🙂
