Project Pie: Artisan Pizza Custom Designed Built and Eaten By Me at 515 Shaw Wack Wack

Every time we passed by Project Pie, we can't help but notice the full parking and the long line of people.
I thought the family would never try it because they do not have the patience for that.  But, I guess last night was an exception.

Since parking was full as always, the guards instructed us to double park.  I think while we were ordering, my brother was attentive enough to notice the our plate number written on the white board being waved by the guard around the place so he was able to park it accordingly.

I thought the place looks huge from the outside.  But, I then realized that its seating capacity is limited since the line and the counter occupies most of the area.  It had three long table with metal chairs.  And, three individual tables with cozy lofts by the wall filled with random scribbles.

It had a lot of dangling yellow utility lights.  It had a tall bar area and two round tall tables by the line area.

It also had a non-functional photobooth.

There's a huge menu board indicating the start of the line.  At the back, there's also the paper menu holder.

I grabbed one of their paper menu and marked the ingredients I wanted to put on my pizza.

It took about 20 minutes to reach the pizza bar.

The staff asked me whether I wanted white sauce or red sauce.

The pizza dough base comes out of a machine so size and thickness is quite accurate.

Next is the cheese section.

 You could just say "ALL CHEESE" if you want to try them all.

This section is where it gets a bit confusing to distinguish which is which so better hold on to your menu and mention what you want.  This would be better if they had labels on it.

This is where the rest is if it isn't on the prior station.  Aside from those listed in the menu, some ingredients used for the salad is here too.  You can request them too like the craisins and walnuts.

So, here are our 7 pizzas!  We ordered one for each.  Most of us "Built our Own" except for my brother and youngest sister who both chose "Order Number 2"

This lady right here writes the main ingredients of the pizza just by looking and places your name on it for ease in identification.

project pie drinks
They also sell bottled drinks. We just requested for water.  =D

Around 15 minutes, we heard our name called as our pizzas are ready.  The problem was... we didn't have any seats as some were already seated before ordering when it was supposed to be the other way around.  Luckily, a lady was waiting for her take-out by the counter and told us she and her companions were about to leave and offered their table.  A very nice and appreciated gesture indeed. =)

There's a self-service dispenser for softdrinks and ice tea.  So, its bottomless at the fair price of 65 php.

Opposite the soda machine is the condiments counter.

Our Pizzas!
Order by Number
custom built number two
Order Number 2 (285 php)
Order Number 2 has their signature red sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella, Italian sausage, garlic and crumbled meatballs.  It's one wholesome garlicky and meaty pizza.  But, ingredients are not as fulfilling as when you "build your own".  And since their priced the same, I'd really recommend choosing the latter.

Build Your Own (285 php)

My Mom's Pizza
My mom is a great cook so she has an instinctive sense on what to put on her pizza.  Who would have thought Candied Walnuts would go great with Mushrooms. =)

My Build my Own Pizza (sorry for the crappy photo)
My "Build my Own Pizza" had Italian sausage, JalapeƱos, Mushrooms, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Feta, Gorgonzola, Ricotta, Mozzarela and Artichokes.  It good but I thought it could have been better with more ingredients.  I also love the crunchiness of their crust and the chewiness of their dough.

This is what's left!  We skipped the dessert since we noticed most tables have those as left overs.

They adopt a clean as you go policy which we happily complied with.  Just empty your trays and stack them there.  But as I've observed, it's generally not followed.  And, doing the cleaning job adds to the queuing time as well. 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Project Pie offers a whole new experience by making your own artisan custom designed pizza.  I'd give it a thumbs up for concept, price and quality.

Turnover is really fast and this place is very crowded during peak hours.  It's not the ideal place to seat back and relax because you'd feel guilty as other people are standing and waiting for you to empty your table.  I guess that's what the Starbucks next door if for.

Since the parking space is not enough to cater to its customers, cars were mostly double parked.  We literally spent 35 minutes stuck on the parking area because the white board had incurred a bottleneck as the owner of the previous cars probably did not know that they should be on the look out for it.
