1. My Kitchen by Chef Chris
The original Antonio pizza of My Kitchen with smoked salmon!
Known for its roll up pizza, My Kitchen surely will hit the right spots with its thinly crusted pizza! The crust is so delicately soft and light that it lets you focus on the goodness on top. I’m out of words, but it’s certainly the best I had so far!

Location: The Oasis Paco Park Hotel, 1032-34 Belen Street, Paco, Manila
Price range per pie: P770 to P790
What to order? Original Verena and Original Aura

*Price range per pie disregards service charge

2. Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen
Mama Lou's Special Pizza - a signature dish
Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen is also known for its incredible line-up of Italian dishes which of course include pizza and pasta. Almost similar with My Kitchen, the pizza here in Mama Lou’s is thinly crusted that lets you dwell on the toppings. The reason as to why this placed only second is the inevitable consideration of the ambiance and service (since My Kitchen is an in-house restaurant of The Oasis Hotel)

Location: Block 1, Lot 36, Tropical Avenue Corner Tropical Palace, BF International, Las Pinas City
Price range per pie: P260 to P450
What to order? Mama Lou's Special Pizza

3. C'Italian Dining

C'Italian's roll up pizza easily made me fall in love because of its relative affordability and pure awesomeness! Plus, you'll get to enjoy a wonderful ambiance here in this place.

Location: L'Ermitage Building, Leviste cor Toledo Street, Salcedo Village, Makati
Price range per pie: P270 to P690
What to order? Rolls Royce Panizza and Kristina

4. Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza
Gino's Brick Oven Pizza - SMEGG
Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza is also a must-try with its amazing line-up of finely crafted pizzas. The crust may not be as thin as those mentioned earlier, but it still allows you to experience the goodness of the flavors, especially that it’s quite noticeable that Gino’s pizzas have generous toppings (e.g. the meat, cheese, spices and etc.)

Location: Bautista Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City (and 2 other branches)
Price range per pie: P295 to P420
What to order? SMEGG, BOMB, Buffalo Pizza

5. Torch
White truffle panizza of Torch
White truffle panizza of Torch
Torch is well-known for its traditional pizza (with a slight twist on the crust) as well as the panizza, which is quite similar to a roll up pizza, and instead of having its crust soft and thin, Torch opted to go for a lightly crispy crust (except for the panizza) to go with the amazing selection of toppings.

Uninteristing triva: Torch was my previous second before I got to try Mama Lou’s and Gino’s.

Location: Level 1, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City (and 3 other branches)
Price range per pie: P295 to P450
What to order? White truffle pizza/panizza

6. Linguini Fini
Longganisa and Scamorza Pizza of Linguini Fini
Linguini Fini offers pizzas that are powerfully charged with a lot of distinct and potent flavors which really make them highly noteworthy and possibly attention-grabbing.

Location: Third Floor, Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City
Price range per pie: P390 to P785
What to order? Longganisa Scamorza

7. Il Ponticello
Rotolo Originale of Il Ponticello
Rotolo Originale of Il Ponticello
Il Ponticello is something you might not know due to its not-so-prominent location, but once you get to know its pizza you'll surely fall in love!

8. Pomodoro Pizza

Price range per pie: P139 to P229
What to order? Pizza Gamberetto

9. Project Pie

If you are too tired of something mainstream like the one listed on 8, you may want to go for Mad for Pizza. This restaurant is often more generous when it comes to toppings, but surely Project Pie has a better crust.
