Takeout pizza from Al Borgo

C says:

We rounded off a lazy National Day weekend by getting a couple of the pizzas at Al Borgo to go. They have quite a wide selection of interesting pizza pairings – a whole page each of tomato-based pizzas and white pizzas.

We tried one of each. The tomato pizza was in the form of a pancetta pizza. Yes, this may have been predictable but it was still very good. They’re very generous with their toppings, and this came loaded with cubes of smokey bacon.

The white pizza we tried had sliced beef, porcini mushrooms and gorgonzola. This slightly more unlikely pairing was also quite yummy, if a tad on the rich side. The beef was tender, and again they were very liberal with their ingredients.

The pizzas here are somewhere in between thin crust and Rocky’s-style normal crust. As a result, a 12-inch pizza can get quite filling, and after polishing off 2 fully loaded ones, I felt absolutely ill that night.

At around $20 per pizza, this is good value for money given the sheer amount as well as quality of the toppings. Just don’t expect the most refined execution.

Very good. And very filling with a generous helping of toppings. It’s not the absolute best in terms of taste, but probably the best in terms of overall combination of size, quality and value.
