Proof Pizza + Wine
Sleek and refined, Proof brings a quiet but distinct elegance into the pizza scene in KL. What makes it stand out from the glut of pizza delivery services and casual family joints is founder Wong Yin How’s insistence on quality, with a focus on the restaurant’s pizza base: it’s made from hand-stretched sourdough that’s been proofed for at least 24 hours (up to an impressive 48) and is full of flavour. That excellent sourdough base that’s both chewy and crunchy lines their crowd favourite Umbrian black truffle pizza, an incredibly savoury pie topped with earthy black truffle paste, chunky forest mushrooms and rich taleggio cheese, bursting with intense flavours that linger.
Wong’s stand on quality extends to the dining experience at Proof; blazing fires from the wood-fired ovens on the ground floor of the small two-storey space bathe the restaurant in warm light, and the commanding floor-to-ceiling wine shelf – with various labels of pizza-friendly wines – lends a touch of class. Service here is impeccable, with patient staff ready to dish out recommendations that almost always hit the mark.
