ALT Pizza Singapore, Vegetarian Dining

Good ol’ pizza! Of course, you get it practically anywhere and everywhere but there are only so many pizza joints in Singapore that actually do justice to this Italian classic and ALT pizza is definitely one of them. After our recent pizza jaunt at ALT pizza, I can tell you that the contemporary pizza bar dishes up the most fabulous thin-crust pizzas, at very affordable prices.

We visited the Robertson Quay outlet and it is quite likely to become our favourite family-pizza-haunt. Great location, great pizzas, vegetarian-friendly and family-friendly! Yup, these guys have got the whole package going.
  

Huge on Family-Friendly Factor

Plenty to keep kids happily busy

Why do I start with the kid-friendly factor instead of the food you ask? Well, I’m still psyched about it since our visit to ALT a couple of weeks ago. I might be easy to please when it comes to food, but I’m so not easy to please when it comes to making adults with kids in tow feel welcome.

So anyway, I haven’t been to ALT’s other outlets but Robertson Quay outlet is super-kid-friendly. Not only does the restaurant offer balloons and crayons to the kids, they also have a separate colouring table for the little ‘uns and an enclosed playpen for the littler ‘uns, which ensures that the kids spend a large amount of time away from the table.

The Quayside area in itself is chic and vibrant, with a cool vibe. The place is also away from the road, so the kids can run around freely without the parents hyperventilating. All of this means that you won’t be leaving in a hurry; so get ready for a relaxed, laid back meal and some conversation. My husband and I actually had a week’s worth of conversation during those 2 hours. No, I’m not kidding!

The Vegetarian Start

Drool-worthy Artichoke Dip & Flatbread

On to the food – we started off with the Super Kale Salad (S$12), Artichoke Dip & Flatbread ($8) and Roasted Veggie Lasagne (S$13), to share around the table. While all 3 dishes were good, the Artichoke Dip & Flatbread was the clear winner – an absolutely must-try dish. Even my fussy trio loved the bread & dip. The salad can be done vegan if you exclude the feta cheese.
  

The Vegetarian & Vegan Pizzas

Enough choice for vegetarians here. ALT’s Signature Pizzas (S$18) are 11 inches and light enough for a person to have one, but we would recommend ordering a variety to share around the table. ALT’s pizzas are built from scratch using only fresh ingredients, including dough that is made daily. Their award-winning sauce is made fresh daily too – nothing canned or artificial here folks! We were told that the pizzas are fire-baked to 400°, which locks in the natural flavours.

My favourite of the day was Hipster with vine-ripened tomato sauce, fresh pineapples, fresh jalapeños, thinly sliced red onions, feta, cheddar and mozzarella. I’m not a big fan of pineapples on pizza but I have to say that the pineapples and jalapeños complemented each other perfectly. Thumbs up all the way. A very close second was the Truffle Shuffle. The Truffle Shuffle normally contains pork, but ALT did a vegetarian version for us, which was very good. With a base of white béchamel sauce, the flavourful Truffle Shuffle is topped with roasted mushrooms and onions, mozzarella and parmesan, and drizzled with truffle oil (which I’m a sucker for). Highly recommended for vegetarians! The thin-crust pizzas were soft and chewy, with the right amount of crunch.

Upon enquiring if they had any vegan pizzas, Lean & Green was done vegan for us. The healthier, colourful, Lean & Green is one of the more creative choices at ALT, with roasted garlic pesto, spinach, broccoli and pumpkin. The regular version is topped with feta, mozzarella and parmesan, which were excluded in our vegan version. I would have preferred lesser broccoli on the pizza but overall the pizza was really good and different, with sweet and savoury hints.

DIY Pizzas at ALT Pizza Singapore
Go creative with DIY pizzas, with plenty of vegetarian ALTernative toppings to choose from

The twins wanted to go for the DIY option, and picked their toppings on a base of vine-ripened tomato sauce – black olives, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and get this, truffle oil (apparently, they liked the fragrance of our Truffle Shuffle and wanted the same fragrance on theirs). The DIY pizzas start at just S$8 (for the base + 1 sauce) and have a variety of sauces, cheeses and vegetarian ALTernative toppings to choose from – think béchamel sauce, garlic pesto, blue cheese, kale, roasted peppers, artichoke, basil just to name a few (cheese and veg toppings are at S$3 each). So, go creative, go crazy, go vegetarian!

To sum up, as far as the pizzas go, with 3 vegetarian pizza choices as such and the option of multiple choices by going DIY, vegetarians and even vegans should have plenty of choice.

Needless to say, we were bursting by the time desserts were to be ordered, but not easily deterred, we requested for our leftover pizzas to be packed, and attacked the Chocolate Lava Cake (S$6) and Sticky Date & Banana Pudding (S$6) with gusto. Both the desserts are really good and we were split on our favourites, so no clear winner. But since I’m the one writing this review, I’ll go with the Sticky Date & Banana Pudding. My chocoholic daughter and husband won’t agree but what’re they gonna do 😉.

  1. Hi Pooja,
    Great review
    May I ask if vegetarian pizzas are egg free too as in the pizza dough. Also, do they use veg cheese as in plant rennet not beef rennet?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Anshul. Thanks :). I think the pizza base is egg free but I’ll check for you to be sure. As far as the cheeses go, I’ve enquired with the restaruant. As far as I know, Parmesan can’t be done without rennet but cheeses like cheddar, feta and mozarella can be made without rennet. But of course, it would depend on what cheese the restaurant is using. I’ll let you know if I hear back from them. Till then, go cheese-less 😉 but i agree the options get limited without the cheese.
