What determines a good pizza can be really subjective but I find myself growing fond of light crust and rich fresh toppings, and Proof Pizza and Wine at APW, Bangsar happens to fit into most of the things I seek in a pizza dining experience. Cosy yet lively, the tiny space accommodates no more than an estimation of 35pax at a time so reservation is very highly recommended. I walked out with disappointment several times before but if air conditioner is not mandatory in your life then perhaps Al fresco would give you another unique experience.
By far a winner when it comes to truffle on pizza, Umbrian Black Truffle Pizza (RM 35 for 8 inch) is my all time favourite whenever the truffle crave kicks in.
Cooked inside the wood fire oven, the bases are lovely chewy and being that beautiful canvas, the base supports a good mix of mushroom and black truffle. Intensively covering up the entire pizza, the rich toppings harmoniously creates delicious bites, each one that is amore.
La Americano (RM 45 for 12 inch) is an interesting combination of Hickory smoked pork bacon, broccoli, mozzarella, gorgonzola, and cherry tomatoes and while the combined flavours are robust, fresh salads won’t be your afterthought if you are pairing it with some wine.
And the Luganega Pork Sausage Pizza (RM 33 for 8 inch) combines cauliflower, pork sausage, egg, yogurt, feta cheese into a rather ordinary and dull looking but reasonably palatable pizza experience.
Surely they might not be an all round award winning sort of pizza joint, but they’ve got their charm when it comes to contemporary touches. So expect a long waiting list if you decide to bravely try your luck walking in, or you could rely on takeaway and have your pizzas under the starry night if the sky is even clear to begin with. It wasn’t quite a bad idea because APW is in such where most corridors or open space being the chill zone at anytime.
