For a person who loves pizza and pasta, any places that serve these two become interesting enough to be visited. Now, what more if the name of the place has "Pizza" with it? Ah, it becomes more and more interesting! Friends, let me share to you what I'm specifically talking about through this blog post! It's nothing but this restaurant in Il Terrazzo of Tomas Morato called "Mad for Pizza".

A Little Something about Mad for Pizza
Although it can be presumed that Mad for Pizza offers pizza (well, duh, thanks Captain Obvious), it is more than what you have in mind. Yes, the restaurant offers "Toppings all You Want" pizza at only P280, but unlike other places known for something similar, this place also serves other dishes particularly of American and Mexican cuisines.

Mad for Pizza's Interior
The interior has a mix of vibrant red and gray that produces a nostalgic feeling of the diners we see in old movies or comics (i.e. Archie). Although the chairs are innately not comfy, the place and the positiveness of the ambiance compensate well for it.

We'll get to the pizza later, but for now let's talk about the appetizers there!

Appetizers

The House Salad || P158

This House Salad was highly refreshing with the lightly sweet ranch-like dressing, highlighted by the taste of boiled eggs, peaches and tomatoes.

The Nachos || P178
The Mexican Nachos for a Diverse Flavor
Disco Fries || P188

Don't like Nachos? Well, choose the fries instead!
Both the nachos and fries were almost alike with their potent bean accent with the cheesy and crispy base of either nachos or fries.

Drinks

Bottomless Iced Tea || P108 and Frozen Iced Tea || P88

Hmmm, there are two iced teas to choose from, and it's fairly easy to choose which is good for you. If you want an intense sugar rush, go for the bottomless, but in case you want to try something different and really refreshing, go for the Frozen Iced Tea.

The main difference between the two is that the latter is blended with crushed ice making it really relaxing and refreshing to take a sip.

Salted Caramel Milk Shake || P95

Most of the bloggers agreed that this is a Work-In-Progress, and the owner confirmed it as well. He is still trying to tweak it to cater to the taste buds of Filipino foodies. I wasn't able to personally take a sip of this drink, but I heard it was excessively sweet.


Pasta and Other Dishes

Beef Stew Pasta || P188

This Beef Stew Pasta was an interesting dish for me because of the vibrant color. However, I had something in mind as to the taste, and when I had a spoonful, I was surprised. I won't say that I didn't like it, but I'll tell you that it was something peculiarly new to me. Yes, the pasta elements were there, but the surprising part was the inclusion of beef stew that eventually altered the taste. The resulting flavor was a strong herby meaty taste.

Amboy "Angus Beef Belly" in Adobo Sauce || P198

This special Beef belly dish had a noticeable Mexican spice (resembling a bean taste) mixed with the traditional Filipino adobo sauce. Personally, my taste buds are not well-acquainted with this type of herb, and this led to the undermining of my satisfaction from the dish. Don't get me wrong guys, it wasn't bad at all. I just don't prefer dishes with this type of herb and/or taste.

Classic Fish and Chips || P198

The fish had a thick but crispy batter, and the sauce that came with it was sweet and lemony! The resulting blend was really great, but I would appreciate it even better if there would be more sauce served to go with that huge serving of fish (which is really good, by the way)!

Tennessee Pork Spare Ribs || P268
Tennesse Pork Spare Ribs - relatively affordable

The Pork Spare Ribs had a sharp potent herb taste similar to the beef with a striking (but not prolonged) chili sensation matched with sweetness. It may not be suitable for those who dislike strong herb taste. However, if that is not an issue for you. You will surely love it!

Pizzas

The Pizzas here in Mad for Pizza are really good because of less greasiness and the usage of fresh ingredients!

There are three Ready to Order pizzas here in Mad for Pizza, just in case you are lazy enough not to make your own.

Anya's Creation || P250
Alfredo sauce, mozarella parmesan, cheddar shrimp, roasted garlic

This Anya's Creation was totally fantastic with the outpouring of its white garlic shrimp flavors. Yeah, it was simple, but I managed to enjoy it well.

Justin's Favorite || P250
Mozarella, parmesan, cheddar peperoni, bacon, sausage, meatball crumble
Meaty goodness in Justin's Favorite of Mad for Pizza

The Justin's Favorite is good for those who are really into meat!

The taste of this pizza was just balanced which means each ingredient harmonizes with the rest. However, I suggest that you go for the customizable pizza and ask for an all meat. It was way way fantastic!

Andross's Choice || P250
Mozarella, parmesan cheese, feta ham, pineapple
Andross's Choice of Mad for Pizza
Interesting and refreshing Andross's Choice!
This Andross's Choice was really interesting because of a subtle herb taste that was suspiciously good. Plus, the feta together with the pineapple produced a salty-sweet combination that I found really exciting!

All-Meat Pizza and All-Cheese Pizza || P280
Again, I urge you to grab the opportunity to customize your own pizza. With only P30 to add, you can get a whole lot more of goodness!
All Meat and All Cheese of Mad for Pizza
Create Your Own Pizza - All Meat and All Cheese
The All-Cheese had 9 cheeses on it, namely Mozzarella, Parmesan, romano, Asiago, Cream, Cheddar, Blue, Feta and Provolone! This is why it was really a smashing hit for me! I recommend that you give this one a try! You will surely love it - promise (unless you are not a cheese lover).

The All-Meat had the following: Meatball Crumble, Italian Sausage, Grilled Chicken, Pepperoni, steak Slices, Pharma Ham, Ham and Bacon! This one is a definite Hunger-Buster! Hence, if you want to forget about dieting and all those stuff, go for this one!

Desserts

Bannoffee Cubbler || P88

I wasn't able to taste this one on its chilled state, so I can't provide you with an "accurate" opinion on this one.

Same goes for this one; however, I was able to sense some good blend of tangy and sweet flavors!

Alright, these were all the dishes and food served to us. Since I am about to wrap this blog post up, do check this one out first to learn more about this restaurant.

I have to admit it to you guys, I really enjoyed the pizzas of Mad for Pizza. However, my palate does not jive well with the other dishes, except for the Salad! If you have a huge appetite for Mexican herbs and spices, I bet you will definitely love their dishes here!

  2. Parang project pie! Which do you prefer? :)

  3. Yup! When we speak of convenience, I choose Project Pie (since it's nearer). When we speak of flexibility in terms of toppings, I choose Mad for Pizza. Overall, I prefer Project Pie with Mad for Pizza almost catching up.

  4. Oh wow. That's cool! I've only ever heard of Project Pie. Why do you prefer it over Mad Pizza? :)

  5. Project Pie wins for me because of the tastiness and crunchiness of the crust, but both are great!
