ESTABLISHED in 1997, the halal-certified US Pizza in Penang never fails to impress tastebuds with its artisanal hand-tossed pizzas that are fresh and yummy to the last bite!
With two outlets in Green Lane (beside Gembira Parade) and Summerton (near Queensbay Mall), the pizzeria is renowned for its creative pizzas topped with seasonal and unconventional ingredients to reflect local influences.
Each pizza is made to order using a unique oil-free process that produces a perfect crispy crust with a little bit of char.
The finest ingredients are used – 100% low-fat mozzarella cheese, whole ripened tomato and top quality meat and vegetables.
Besides the original hand-tossed crust, there are also thin and crunchy as well as garlic cheese crusts.
The pizzas are matched with specially formulated sauces such as Duncan (whole-ripened tomatoes), hickory BBQ, creamy Italiano, US tartar, tomyam and teriyaki.
Traditional creations are Aloha (chicken roll, pineapple and double cheese), Bolognese (meat sauce cooked with chicken, chopped tomato, carrot, celery, mushroom and onion) and US Favourite (chicken or beef pepperoni and double cheese).
Signature pizzas are Ocean Delite (shrimp, crabmeat stick, onion, green pepper, mayonnaise and mixed herbs), Jumbo Deluxe (chicken or beef pepperoni, chicken, ground beef, green pepper, onion, fresh tomato, mushroom and pineapple) and New Yorker (chicken or beef pepperoni, mushroom, chicken roll and ground beef).
More choices include Tomyam Chicken Delite (tomyam chicken, mushroom, tomato, pineapple and onion), Penang Special (green pepper, onion, tuna, spicy ikan bilis (anchovy) and cayenne pepper) and Hollywood Benny Egg (egg, turkey toast slices and onion).
Highly recommended are the chef’s best of Indiana BBQ Smokey Duck (onion, pineapple and smoked duck marinated with BBQ sauce), Fish ‘N’ Chip (US golden fish finger, US tartar sauce, cherry tomato and onion) and San Diego Golden Tempura (Italiano sauce, onion, green pepper, crabmeat stick, tempura prawn, Italiano mayo and mixed herbs).
For something lighter, there is plain cheese pizza or banana mania pizza while patrons also have the option to make their own pizzas.
To complement the pizzas are starters such as delicious New York or Florida Honey wings, grilled chicken salad and cinnamon twist.
A varied selection of pastas like Ocean Carbonara, Italiano Chicken, and Smokey Duck & Mushroom Carbonara are also available.
