This Halal Italian Restaurant In Novena Serves Authentic Margherita Pizza, Calzone & More

Ask the average Singaporean about their favourite pizza place and they'd probably associate it with the likes of a popular cafe or a fast food chain. But have you heard of Gus Pizzeria, which sells authentic Neapolitan style pizza made with ingredients all the way from Italy? That's right, feasting on Italian food just got real and so much better!

Chef-owner Ghazali Ibrahim only opened this place last year in the heart of Novena at Goldhill Plaza, a 4-minute walk from Novena MRT Station. Passionate about making food and inspiring the young generation to take on big dreams, he started Gus Pizzeria - serving up pizza, pasta and Calzone (a folded pizza stuffed with the usual ingredients and served with fresh tomato sauce on the side).

Did we mention that they ferment their dough for 72 hours to give it that super soft yet crispy texture that we all love? You'll definitely get to experience a whole different level of pizza here! ? They even share the differences between types of pizza on their Instagram story, from Neapolitan to Rome and New York pizza, evidently proving their choice of serving Neapolitan pizza. (Hint: It contains half the amount of calories for those of us counting ?)

Their normal menu includes the Margherita, the queen of pizzas topped with fresh basil, Diavola with spicy salami and mushrooms, Genovese Pesto using their home-made pesto and mushrooms, and Quattro Formagi, a 4-cheese mozarella pizza for those of us who love cheese! They've also recently added a Bolognese Pizza to their menu consisting of house-made Bolognese and red onions for that added tang kick. Or if you prefer your sandwiches, they have home-made sandwiches consisting of spicy salami too!

So, how do we order from them during this period? Apart from serving takeaway at their restaurant in Novena, they're currently dropping their pick-up promotions daily on their Instagram story! You can expect freshly-made pizzas built from scratch daily, and they even update the quantity of their doughs left on their Instagram story so you may be able to order from them last-minute. Be sure to keep a lookout on their page to find out where to self-collect your pre-orders!
