The Awesome Project Pie in Bluebay Walk, Pasay City

It has been a little more than a year since Project Pie landed here in the Philippines. You may probably tell me that I'm too late blogging about it, but I'll go by the saying "It's better late than pregnant never". (Oh shucks, who placed the cornball here?)

Anyway, I'm very proud to say that I finally got to try the pizzas of Project Pie! Since I am euphoric about it, let me provide you a documentation of the wondrous experience my family and I had in this place in Blue Bay, Pasay City (near Mall of Asia).

Note: Although you may keep on hearing that it is in Mall of Asia, it is not.

The Place full of Good Vibes and Awesomeness
As you enter the place, you'll be greeted by a neat and spacious interior, although ironically, the seats are limited (compared to the number of customers during peak hours) while those located outside may not be ideal during summer.

Another thing that I find amusing here in Project is the presence of quotable or hash-tagable (if such a term exists) quotes found on some of the walls. There are also witty lines such as "Rest Day" when a drink isn't available and "Get as much tissue as you want (but think about the trees)". For sure the Project Pie here in Blue Bay is filled with a lot of good vibes!

To top it all, the crew of Project Pie are all nice and bubbly singing cheesy songs or any upbeat songs that just pop into their minds! Frankly, I haven't seen a crew that happy - and it was overflowing and spilling onto us the customers!

Pay as You Order
Now, Project Pie is a pay as you order restaurant, but that's not interesting. What's worth the attention is the entire ordering process. First, you start with the dough (oh, your name will be asked as well). From there, you may either choose the house specials or create your own, but even if you choose the former you may still tweak it and add or remove something. As one of the crew puts it, "The sky is the limit." On this stage, the sauce will be placed on the pizza.

Next, you'll be moving on to another crew who'll be helping out in putting the toppings. If you chose to innovate your own, you'll be the one to point out which one will be included. Finally, you'll end up with the paying section.

Afterwards, you'll have to wait about 5 to 10 minutes before your pizza gets served (as they call out your name). This is where they bake the pizzas:

It is good to have something first as you wait, so we ordered a Classic Caesar Salad to jump-start our appetite. It was simple and straight to the point, and we liked it that way. Plus, it was just light on the tummy perfect for giving our stomach a soft jolt.

Mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken, Feta, Mozzarella, Tomatoes, Balsamic Dressing on warm pizza dough

In case you want to combine your salad with your main meal, you will love this Pizza Salad that comes with a balsamic vinegar. Although it is heavier than the Classic Caesar Salad, it is considerably lighter than your regular meals.

Project Pie's Build Your Own Pizza || P285
Almost all of us opted for building our own pizza. My mom on the other hand picked half of #2 and #6.

Although I am discouraging you to order by number, these pizzas with pre-determined toppings are not half as bad. However, I still believe that the customized one can potentially taste better (if you know how to combine stuff).

By the way, my brother is claiming Project Pie as the Best Pizza Place he'd been to, but I disagree with him. You'll learn what's the Best for me later.

What I practically love about the pizzas of Project Pie in general is the thin crust that I found so tasty and delightful! Also, I love how fresh the ingredients are as evidenced by the fantastic taste!

On the other hand, what I love about our personalized pizza was the interesting blend of flavors especially coming from the walnuts. I just realized it walnuts go well with some pizzas!

Here's the thing. Sometimes, choosing a lot of topping on a pizza won't do (but sometimes it does). Putting this in reverse - Choosing pizza with only a number of toppings may result to an amazing one if you know how to combine stuff.

Initially, we didn't intend to order some desserts, but one of the crew insisted that we try the Banana Nutella. Since he assured us that it will be great, we ordered! Fortunately, he was right!

If you have a sweet tooth, you'll practically marry this one! The awesome blend of cinnamon, banana and Nutella produces a remarkable taste that is lovely!

Project Pie - Ratings 
Note: Unshaded stars are equivalents of half-stars.
Place ★★★☆
Taste ★★
Service ★★
Price ★★
Budget: P350 each person for a customized pizza and beverage up to 3 refills

Overall, we really enjoyed our experience here in this pizzeria basically due to the extremely fine quality and taste of the pizzas. In addition, the vibrancy of the place made us feel overjoyed as we left, but although this may not be the best pizza I'd had (since My Kitchen's Pizza still holds the title), it still places well as second with a good lead. If you haven't tried it, well you should sometimes! It will definitely worth paying a visit!

Friends, let me hear what you have to say about this place. I will be glad to engage into a conversation with you.
