Pizza Pazza

C says:

This place, a pizzeria within a food court, has changed hands since it was first opened by Romanian chef Peter Bontoi, who used to own the now defunct Il Piccolo at Crown Centre. He has apparently sold the place and is now running his own chef for hire business. Pizza Pazza is now run by a Chinese lady, and there’s a Pasta Pazza stall opposite as well.

Quality has dipped slightly since the change, but not significantly. It’s still pretty good, and now besides their basic pizzas (you can choose any or all of their toppings - $5 for a 7 inch and $12 for a 12 inch), they have a few premier ones as well, like Proscuitto Crudo, Smoked Salmon and Seafood. Prices for these are for a 12 inch pizza – for half the price you can get a 7 inch version.

We had a half size each of the Proscuitto Crudo and Smoked Salmon pizzas. The Proscuitto came with a runny egg so that was good, but the parma ham was a little hard to bite into. The salmon was good but a little on the salty side. In short, I think I still prefer the make-your-own pizzas.

If anyone is interested, they also do catering, and all cutlery and crockery is provided. It’s just $10 per person, minimum 20 pax, and you get salad, pizzas, lasagne, some pastas, and panna cotta for dessert.

The pizzas are very good for the price. Definitely the most value for money pizza around (I’m ignoring the cheap ones that taste like cardboard). The only problem with this place is the 7” is too small and the 12” is too big.
