Pizza lovers have something new to look forward to! Homegrown Deelish Brands, Singapore’s pioneer of halal fast-casual chain restaurants who first brought us Fatburger, has brought one of America’s most exciting woodfired oven pizza chains to Singapore.
800° Woodfired Kitchen – which boasts Miami Heat mega-stars Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem as owners – brings a taste of authentic Neapolitan-style woodfired pizza to Singapore. The location also includes the first 800° cafe in the world.
Established by award-winning American chef Anthony Carron, 800° Woodfired Kitchen is founded upon principles such as using the highest quality ingredients, in addition to having a wonderful ambience and a superior guest experience.
The perfect pizza starts with the best Neapolitan flour, imported from Naples, Italy. The flour is custom milled with high protein content, resulting in an elastic dough for that perfect crust. The highlight is the wood-fired oven, which brings the cooking temperature as high as 800° Fahrenheit, or 420° Celsius, resulting in that beautiful leopard print char on the crust. 800° Woodfired Kitchen uses a blend of various types of wood to infuse each pizza with a unique smoky taste. As the oven is continually seasoned with use, you can expect the individually shaped pizzas to taste even better over time.
