4 Hawker stalls in Singapore to satisfy your pizza cravings
These days, you no longer patronise hawker centres solely for staples like chicken rice, nasi lemak or prata. Ever so often, you’ll chance upon stalls serving up more trendy menus like burgers, macaroni and cheese and the main star for today; pizza.
We know, it can be daunting to stray away from our usual options like Dominos or the more upscale Italian restaurant. But who knows, one of these hawker options below might just be your new favourite place to grab some pizza.
ButterNut (Taman Jurong)
If you’re a Westie with a pizza craving, look no further than ButterNut. Located at Taman Jurong Food Centre, the halal-certified stall has garnered quite a buzz for its crispy, thin-crust pizzas.
Depending on how voracious your appetite is, their eight-inch pizzas are great for one or to share with a friend. Apart from classic flavours like Hawaiian ($11.90) and Beef Pepperoni ($11.90), they also serve up tantalising options like their signature ButterNut Chicken ($11.90) and popular Mushroom Truffle ($11.90).
