As a university student, life was a lot of pizza. And it was mostly pizza from pizza chains.
Now as an adult, my tastes in pizza are slightly more refined. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of pizza on offer at John’s Pizzeria and Bakery in Tanjong Katong.
Housed away in one of the many shophouses that line the main road, and between two restaurants offering more local fare, John’s Pizzeria and Bakery vows to “Make Pizza Great Again”! And do they deliver!
The Ambience, Service and Staff
We didn’t make reservations when visiting John’s Pizzeria and Bakery. We just happened to be walking by and their establishment and food struck our fancy.
It was fairly early in the evening and we were one of two tables that were occupied inside. The interiors are tastefully done, with a throwback to a 1960s American Diner.
The staff are polite and took our orders quickly. Our pizzas were served within 10 minutes of our order.
They have a range of gourmet pizzas on offer, and will allow you to mix and match.
During our visit one night, we’d ordered one of their rectangular deep-dish pizzas with a crispy & caramelised cheesy crust all the way around the edges made on their house-made Sourdough crust. They call it a Deep Dish John’s 4-Way where you can combine your choice of 4 pizzas. We made ours out of a Meat Lovers, Pepperoni, Walnut Pesto and Veggie Surpreme, and a Veggie Supreme to make for a well balanced pizza.
This was comfortably enough for 2 adults, with 3 slices left to spare for later! The pizza arrived fast, and was hot and fresh. Every single bite was both comforting and tasty.
The staff were very kind to offer us a box to go.
The Price Point
The food here is very reasonably priced, particularly given their quality of gourmet pizzas. Our meal for two adults set us back just under $40.
The Final Verdict
There’s something about homegrown pizza places that set them apart from the large chains. John’s offers a unique taste in their pizzas and is a place that I would go back to again and again!
