Niseko Pizza, Niseko

Time flies as it has been a week since we embarked on this trip and has been feasting on delectable Japanese cuisines – I was mainly impressed by the pastries and the raw seafood. So Niseko is probably a good place to try some proper Western food since the resort is predominately visited by English-speaking foreigners. I shortlisted Niseko Pizza (technically speaking it’s Italian food) as this is a family run restaurant. I also remembered the restaurant as they are located at a strategic spot in Hirafu. Granted that they are housed in “prime area” and has managed to sustain their business since I last noticed them in 2013, they should be a reliable choice for a good meal. In fact based on online reviews, it was highly recommended to make a reservation to secure a seat at this popular spot.

When we arrived at 8.30pm, the place was not jammed pack although business was brisk. It was evident from the layout of the place that most of the customers come in big groups and we ended up being seated at the bar area. At first glance, the contemporary style design made me felt like being in a stylish tapas-bar instead of a pizzeria. However the restaurant prides itself in serving handmade, wood fired pizzas using recipes passed down from the Chef’s father in Europe. From the 20+ variety of pizzas, we chose the Supreme tomato sauce, mixed wild mushrooms, red onions, roasted bell peppers, pepperoni, chorizo, homemade salsiccia, pork sausage, ham, bacon, kalamata olives & fresh mozzarella.

The pizzas are available in 2 sizes: Large or Family size. Being small-eaters, we knew we had to go with the Large size. We were impressed by the thin crust of the pizza, typical of Neapolitan styled hand-tossed pizza, not forgetting the aromatic charred browned edges along the side.

While I was checking out TripAdvisor’s list of restaurants for lunch options while having a bad weather day in Niseko, I realised that we had visited the #4-7 restaurants during this trip. What a coincidence.
