Mad For Pizza: Create Your Own Pizza and More! (Il Terrrazzo) (branch closed)

Mad for Pizza opened in at the second floor of Il Terrazzo a few weeks ago.  I've always wanted to check out Il Terrazzo so I gave it a go.

You can actually see from its clear glass the pizza topping option board.

The name "Mad for Pizza" lead me to assume that it was pizzeria offering only pizzas.  When in fact, it has so much more to offer.

Nachos (178 php)
I'll let the photos do the talking with the Nachos.  As you can see it has everything. =)

The Classic Fish and Chips is breaded dory fish fillet with vanilla essence served with fries.  The sweet lemon dip is a great complement.

tenesse pork spare ribs
Tenesse Pork Spare Ribs (268 php)
The Tenesse Pork Spare Ribs is delicious!  It was mildy spicy, sweet, tangy, herby and savory.  The meat was tender too.  For the price, it's such a bargain.

The Amboy is Angus Beef Belly in thick sweet, salty and herbed adobo sauce.  It's strong flavors makes a compatible viand with the onion and tomato topped rice.

Create Your Own Pizza
What really drew us in was the Create Your Own Pizza concept.  For only 280 php, you get to create your own 10-inch (yes! that's huge and good for sharing) pizza with lots of quality toppings.

According to this board, Step 1 gives you 4 doughs to choose from: 1. Classic Dough, 2. Herb Dough 3. Garlic Parmesan Dough 4. Spinach Dough.  Step 2 allowed you to choose from 4 sauces: 1. House Pizza Sauce 2. Roasted Garlic Alfredo 3. Fra Diablo 4. Diablo.  Then Step 3: You can choose among the 40 toppings.

The way it works is that you will be given an order form at your table where you can do the Step 1 and Step 2.  Then the server will usher you to the open kitchen to do Step 3.

So you just point whatever topping you want.  Some toppings listed were not available during our visit.  But, they have more than those listed too like how the Italian Sausage are actually five types of sausages.

We were really delighted by with the variety of topping selections.
Ready For the Oven!
Create Your Own Pizza (280 php)

Tada!  My pizza creation.  Since I'm in a good mood, I'll share my secret ingredients.

Step 1: Garlic Parmesa Dough
Step 2: Fra Diablo
Step 3: Mozzarella Cheese, Parmesan Cheese,Blue Cheese, Red Bell Peppers, Green Bell Peppers, Roasted Garlic, Sliced Mushroom, Pineapple, Calamari, Shrimp, Clams, Schublig and Bratwurst.

I had it made oblong for a thinner and crunchier texture for no additional charge.  I'll honest.  My guy buds said there's some oddness to it.  But, the blending of the quality cheeses was so good that it was swiped clean.

Justin's Favorite (250 php)

The Justin's Favorite has mozzarella, parmesa, cheddar cheese, pepperoni, bacon, sausage and meatball crumble.  In terms of toppings and flavors, I'd give this a thumbs up.  But, the dough was dry and not chewy enough for me.

Panna Cotta (88 php) and Bannoffee Cubbler (88 php)
The Panna Cotta is a refreshing peachy meal ender.  The Bannoffee Cubbler is a more sweeter choice.

Salted Caramel Milk Shake (95 php)
I was surprised by the size of the Salted Caramel Milk Shake.  It was very affordable but it was too overwhelmingly sweet that finishing it seemed impossible for me.

Frozen Iced Tea (88 php)
The frothy Frozen Iced Tea is the ideal refreshment for me.  The blend is just right.

Update (June 1, 2015): This branch is now closed.  But, I hear they will be reopening in SM Manila.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Mad For Pizza is a new addition to food places where you can hang out with friends.  The dishes and drinks are affordable and served in portions that are good for sharing.  Other than the cool Create Your Own Experience, you should try their other dishes too.  I've been told they'll have a bar and serve aloholic beverages soon too.
