If it’s thick over thin crust for you, then Tripod’s Pizza is definitely a must try. This Maginhawa-based spot offers Detroit-style pies that come with an incredibly thicc crust that’s both crispy and chewy, which you can request to be extra toasted for an even crispier bite. It’s also slathered with a sweet homemade tomato sauce and tons and tons of cheese. You can get it in Double Cheese (P600), Pepperoni (P600), and Classic Arugula (P600). Hurry though, because these pizzas come in limited quantities.

Pizza Telefono

Tired of your usual slice? Pizza Telefono’s more experimental menu may tickle your fancy. There’s the Pacific Clam (starts at P420/10 inches), which is pretty much clam chowder on a chewy crust. The Gambas (starts at P420/10 inches), meanwhile, may entice seafood lovers with its garlicky shrimp toppings. For those who love all things spicy, there’s the Mexican (starts at P430/10 inches), a taco-inspired pizza with a chipotle pepper kick, and the Thai Chicken (starts at P430/10 inches), which comes with Thai sauce and Sriracha chili sauce.

A healthy pizza may sound like an oxymoron but that’s what Scorched Pizzas promises to deliver. Their pizzas are 100% vegan—they're made with gluten-free dough, plant-based toppings, and dairy- and nut-free cheese, but it tastes as good (or even better than) your usual pizza. Check out their take on sisig with the Vegan Sisig Crunch (P470); the classic Margherita (P450), which comes with creamy, plant-based mozzarella; or the Rosemary Roasted Potato Pate (P550), if you consider carbs to be your best friend.

Pizza Grigliata Manila

“More flavor, less bread.” That’s Pizza Grigliata’s motto and it’s one that they take to heart. Their pizza crust is incredibly thin and light, and it’s grilled and torched rather than baked, giving it a unique smoky taste. Innovative techniques aside, their toppings lean more classic, with mainstays like Spinach & Pesto (P400), Bacon and Mushroom (P350), and Pepperoni (P400) being instant favorites.


For orders, visit Pizza Grigliata Manila's website, GrabFood, and Foodpanda.

Pomodoro Pizza

Nearly everything is made from scratch at Pomodoro Pizza—from the fresh, hand-rolled crust, the sweet tomato sauce, down to the special cheese they use for topping their pies. Their version of the Hawaiian pizza, the Hawaiano (starts at P190/10 inches). If you’re looking to explore though, the Bianca (starts at P255/10 inches) is a must-try. This pizza is topped with a rich white sauce, mushrooms, leeks, and an extremely rich truffle butter.

For orders, visit Pomodoro Pizza's Facebook page and Foodpanda.

Gianetto Pizzeria

Born during the lockdown, Gianetto has quickly expanded from a small home business to one that’s raved about on social media. Must-tries include the BHM (P450), which comes with their signature white sauce, premium mozzarella, and tons of bacon, ham, and mushrooms. There’s also Lesley’s Favorite Pizza (P420). Named after one of Gianetto’s founders, this pizza is a purely Pinoy concoction, being topped with longganisa and kesong puti. But if you're a fan of spinach, Eats Me Spinach (P500) is a must-try with Gianetto's signature white sauce, premium mozzarella, cream cheese, and generous servings of spinach.

Crosta Pizzeria

Crosta Pizzeria veers from Italian tradition with their pizzas. Aside from the sourdough-style round pizzas, they also offer airy-yet-crunchy Detroit and crunchy Sicilian styles. The Detroit Roni Cup (P700) is deceptively simple but comes loaded with cupping pepperoni, three-cheese mix on top of pizza sauce. Their pizzas come with cheeky names too, like Basic B*tch (P200)—their take on Margherita, and Everyday We Trufflin’ (P550), which has a truffle-cream base, mozzarella, taleggio, fontina, and pecorino Romano.


For orders, visit Crosta Pizzeria's website or order via Foodpanda or through their Instagram page.
